    Pros

    Unidays is a growing company and with that there is such a fast pace of life. The people are what makes the place, it is full of passionate, driven and talented individuals.

    There are new benefits that have come in over the last few months that are showing the company is starting to step up and care about the people in the organisation.

    Kontras

    Can't think of any right now!

    Rat an das Management

    Carry on doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    - There's so many interesting things happening in every department.

    - As it's a new company and there's fewer processes people are generally free to try ideas out (and make mistakes) If you've worked in an enterprise sized company you will really appreciate this.

    - There's some brilliant people working there. You will get the chance to work with some real up and coming stars.

    - It's growing and expanding

    - There's a general good buzz.

    - They've taken on new C Level people who are making an immediate big impact and are really experienced.

    - If you are good, able to work on your own steam and can be accountable to yourself you will go far.

    I really dislike some of the reviews on here. I find them disingenuous, factually incorrect and some of them borderline libelous and even racist. I hope people read into those reviews and think about the state of mind someone was in when they wrote it.

    As a successful, calm, quiet and considered person I have noticed that some of the people that have left under a bad air really never suited the company in the first place. Unidays isn't somewhere for a corporate born person to come and hide. As they've had to live by their wits and learn on the fly, action is favoured over words and you can really see that in the success and ingenuity of the employees.

    Kontras

    - As it's growing, there can sometimes be chaos
    - Being more open is still a work in progress
    - There's a lot of inexperience (if you are experienced, how about seeing this as a good thing though).
    - Sometimes the next step seems unclear
    - Some higher members of staff are a little aloof.

    What are you going to do though. only fools expect another person to magically known the way better than they do. You can take the above as negative or have the mindset of you like to work at a good work in progress organisation. Who likes a quiet life anyway?

    Rat an das Management

    Keep trying, failing, winning, iterating. Keep hold of those rising stars in the company!

    Pros

    Parts of the office has been refurbished to a very high standard. However this has not been the case on all floors and you do have to be part of the "in crowd" to benefit from this.
    On joining the company you are promised the freedom to mold your own path, build on your career and be part of something special. On the surface this seems an amazing place to work.

    Kontras

    Do not be blinded by HR prancing around promoting a positive and supportive culture, it simply is a facade. You will be expected to work long hours with no benefits other than a few beers and a pizza on a Friday evening. Training will be promised and then revoked and you will not receive any support within your role. The senior managers are an aggressive and condescending. Because of this the staff turn over is immense. In a company of aprox 100 based in the Nottingham office over 10% at any time are working there ridiculous 3 month notice. No wonder so many people go off sick. With some departments having over half the headcount resigning within a 2 month period the recruitment team have a very tough job and are forced to write the fake reviews you see here.

    Rat an das Management

    I truly believe you will not listen to any advice but I will say this.. You need to treat people with a little more respect and not like dispensable toys.

    Pros

    If you wan't to be a part of a growing team that is pushing to put this company on the map, then this is the place for you. Everyone is working their tail off in this office to build UNiDAYS into a huge brand. You will be surrounded by some incredibly talented and ambitious people who come to work everyday ready to kick a**. Not to mention that you will have access to anything that you need to be successful.

    Kontras

    Haven't really encountered any yet. The only thing that is sometimes an issue is the 6 hour time difference between the NYC office and the UK office, but we always seem to find a way and resolve things.

    Pros

    Some genuinely lovely people who work here, but they tend to leave very very quickly. The interior looks nice, they've spent a bunch of money on attempting to make the place look like Google HQ or somewhere 'cool'. They should have spent that money sending some of the management into staff training and how to behave in a professional environment.

    Kontras

    Abusive and demeaning with no respect towards hard working, loyal staff. I would honestly urge anyone to really reconsider working here. It won't be good for your health and future career prospects! Especially as it's company policy for everyone to have a 3 month notice period, making it difficult to leave for another job.

    9am - 5.30pm with only 30 minutes for lunch when most staff are doing up to 10 hours per week overtime is sickening! This is an EXTREMELY high pressured environment with no sign of easing up. The ones who stay are often fooling themselves in the hope that things will get better.

    There has been no pension for staff from when the company first started, still no pension now. This is completely illegal and the response is that it's being sorted soon.

    It's a known fact that the internal recruitment team leave fake 5 star reviews on here to make themselves look better and to achieve a better rating. The staff turnover is crazy, every week there are at least 1 or 2 people leaving, hence the long list of job openings.

    The company can't cope with the amount of work that needs doing and won't hire the amount of resource that's needed to complete it. Everybody is completely overworked and under appreciated. If only they could see that they could save a ton of money if they kept their staff happy and treated them with even an ounce of respect.

    Rat an das Management

    Seriously reconsider some of the choices for whom you have in powerful positions, they're creating an extremely uncomfortable and toxic environment for people to work in. I often see members of staff being subjected to emotional and passive aggressive bullying. Stop whispering to each other about other members of staff and go and address the situation head on, this is not a school playground. Majority of the big-wigs are completely inexperienced and have only risen to senior positions because they've endured this hell hole the longest. The longest serving members have only been around for about 2 years. Hire some staff who are capable and have experience in managing people, the income of work and how to distribute it across the business.

    It costs nothing to show that you care about your staff.

    Pros

    The company has a great culture and some absolutely amazingly talented employees. Everyone works hard while having a good time. We get the right amount of support by the management and are encouraged to be innovative, creative and I personally feel that clear goals are given to be able to progress my career further. There is a lot of collaboration and support within teams but also between departments, which is always encouraged through various events. The offices are world class and we are given everything we need to be able to do our work comfortably. Learning is highly encouraged through various means, from various clubs like the coding club, to language classes and lunch-and-learn sessions. There is so much more but to keep this concise, I can honestly say that this is by far the best company I have ever worked for.

    Well, this must have 5 word minimum, but there is literally nothing that comes to mind!

    Pros

    The people are great, you'll come across many different people with different backgrounds and skills and you can really engage with them and make some good friends. The thing everyone has in common is their dislike for the role and how much UNiDAYS needs to change. You'll find this after about 5 or 6 weeks after you start, you will start to discover your role is repetitive, menial, and there's a lack of advice and help.

    Sorry this is meant to be a pro section - there's Cake Thursday everyday Thursday (ran by the employees), there's Summer Friday (you finish 1 hour earlier, sometimes) and access to a whole load of clubs that is run BY EMPLOYEES.

    Common theme being that the employees are keeping this business afloat with their endless enthusiasm that will slowly dwindle.

    You get access to the discounts as well (so do the students that are members).

    Kontras

    No structure

    There is zero structure to this business. You've got the bigwigs at the top and then the SMT but what this company is lacking is Mid-Level Management (they all left one after another over the last few months of 2016 - scary right?). SMT are mostly full of those with the ego's and will sell you down the river if it was over money.

    No development

    This is vital in any business. How is your business going to develop if you won't develop your employees. So many studies point to employee happiness being key to the success of a business, so why is no access to training courses? Why is there no opportunity to go on seminar or events? It's a ridiculous money saving concept that will lead to UNiDAYS struggling to attract the best professionals.

    No hope

    You will start the role with hope and optimism, like all these negative reviewers did only to be delivered something completely different to when you first arrive. The business will expose it's true flaws to you over the next few months and leave you exasperated, disappointed and longing for move elsewhere only to be tied into a 3 month notice period. That being a pretty pointless concept given that those who leave are never replaced.

    If you value your career, life beyond work, sanity and personal goals, then avoid this place.

    Rat an das Management

    Diversify your business before it dies.

    There are competitors hot on the heels of UNiDAYS and with the current staff turnover, the future can look as easily bleak as it looks ambitious right now.

    The amount of people who have left over the last 2 years is astonishing and are figures that should be scary for any company, yet they are ignored and nothing is done. What this company needs is Leadership, a strategy and a appropriate HR structure that will dispel all the rumours you see on these reviews.

    Pros

    What's painful about this company is the potential it has. There are some nice, smart and ambitious people who work here, but their talent is underapreciated by a toxic senior management team.

    They've done a good job with the office and the building is nice.

    Summer Fridays: during the summer months, you finish an hour early on Fridays.

    Kontras

    While it's perhaps unfair to categorise a number of individuals together, there are some in the senior management team who seem at first superficially charming but after working here for a few weeks it becomes apparent that they have absolutely no respect for their employees and see them merely as tools to line their own wallets. If being valued as an employee and a person is important to you then consider working elsewhere. The management team have created a culture of both fear and almost cult-like optimism and self-praise. There's a reason that the majority of reviews on here are 1 star. At the very least, clearly, the business has done a lot to irritate a large number of people.

    I would also advise looking at the unusually high proportion of 5 star reviews if you are interested in seeing how desperate the senior management team is to attract people to fill the void left by their abuse of staff. "Keep it up" appears in the advice to management section an extraordinary number times...check out reviews of other companies and see how often it appears. Also the cons aren't even cons: Unidays is NOT fast paced and challenging; you'll spend more time per day twiddling your thumbs than pitching your bright new ideas to management.

    Employee benefits are not great; if you do a lot of online clothes shopping you might be able to squeeze £200 from non-salary benefits, but really you'd need to be spending over £1000 per year on clothes and using unidays discount in sales.

    It really makes me sad to witness people join the business with such optimism only to have it crushed some weeks later. If you are currently working in a stable job and are looking for a career move, then consider that moving here is a risk; don't discount it, by any means, but if you can't afford to move jobs and for it "not to work out", then please wait for something else.

    Rat an das Management

    Do a Google search on how to treat people with respect. Also, instead of spending your evening writing a fake review to counter this one, perhaps actually take the advice of your employees on board and address the situation, rather than lying about it to help with your appalling staff turnover rate.

    Pros

    I love my job! Every day I am challenged and pushed to become better at what I do. Effort is rewarded above all else - if something goes wrong we use that as an opportunity to learn, not to blame. I'm listened to regarding ideas and am given the time and tools to develop skills.

    As cliche as it is, the mantra of 'work hard, play hard' is definitely applied here. In return for getting high quality work done employees are treated as adults, and given flexibility and trust by SMT.

    Kontras

    Depending on the department benefits can be completely different, which can be annoying to hear about.
    There's a lot of people who I've never spoken to in the company which makes some departments and floors intimidating.

    Rat an das Management

    Create a place for more open communication for people who aren't happy. Don't let them fester in their unhappiness until the molehill becomes a mountain.
