"Managers all have small teams and this goes all the way up to the top so you are never far away from your manager. They sit with their team of usually four or five (not in an office of their own), which means great communication and mentoring. Managers are generally only chosen if they are helpful and good communicators, so are generally of a good standard."
Graduate, Enfield, London
"Managers only manage a small number of people and the low- to mid-level managers sit with their teams at the same desks. They are easy to talk to and care a lot about you and how you're doing."

"Fantastic. Metaswitch has a reputation for training people up and it's because it has really good mentoring and feedback processes."
Graduate, Enfield, London
"We have separate mentors and managers but both of mine are equally approachable. There is never any 'pulling of rank' and the opinions of people higher up the structure are not valued more than other people's. There are weekly status meetings that are really good for providing feedback to your team and receiving feedback."
Graduate, Enfield, London
"Everyone is very transparent. Managers provide a great level of feedback and they are open and honest with employees."
Experienced, Enfield, North London
"Managers almost always have time to talk and listen to any problems you have. They also really try to develop the grads, which is fantastic! They give good feedback, praise and recognition. Typically, you'll sit only a few desks away from your manager so it's very easy to communicate with them."
Graduate, London
"There are frequent company meetings for the senior managers to communicate strategy to the organisation. They are very receptive to feedback on any issue."
Entry level, Edinburgh
"Managers are very open, helpful and accessible. They are always sat at a desk very nearby and are always happy to answer questions. Good performance is recognised and feedback is given often. Sometimes you have a separate mentor, who is your main contact for technical questions. This is a good practice as it separates the managerial tasks from the mentoring tasks."
Graduate, Enfield
"You have at least an hour of one-to-one time with your manager each week. On top of this, they are very accessible and provide constant help and feedback."
Graduate, Enfield
"Managers are very accessible as they rarely have more than five reports."
Graduate, London
