Pros

  • People of all levels are approachable in the office and willing to help each other.
  • The flexible hours are popular and allow employees to have a good work/life balance.
  • Both starting pay and salary progression are seen as competitive in the industry.
  • Previous experience in coding is not a requirement at the company.

Cons

  • There’s considered to be a lack of diversity, though this is being addressed.
  • Some felt the lack of formal training could be improved.
  • The quality of offices can vary depending on location.
  • While progression is possible, the lack of a hierarchical structure means promotion can be unclear.
