The people are really great, I enjoy working them and some became friends.
Technologies being used are quite up to date and nice to work with.
Good communication with weekly emails and monthly town halls.
Good company benefits.
Profit is made by redundancies and cutting costs which has caused a lot of negativity in the past. The salary is not really competitive and the management lacks of listening to their people. That's probably why the company is suffering from loosing their most valuable employees. They can't even keep lots of new hired people for too long.
By not hiring enough well-skilled people in order to compensate people leaving, the product development stagnates, causing an unfinished product to be sold to companies and developers to work over hours to deliver and stress themselves out.
Nevertheless, by working with modern technologies you can build up your skill set and CV, which helps getting the foot in the door for better roles elsewhere.
Conseils à la direction
You have made some changes to the company benefits to stop people leaving, with things like increasing the annual leave, holiday carry over, company voucher etc. but the major issue has not changed at all, which is the bad management attitude. That's why you will keep loosing people.
J'ai postulé via une agence de recrutement. Le processus a pris 1 jour. J'ai passé une entrevue à LateRooms.com (Manchester, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)) en janvier 2013.
Pair programming exercise with a 30 min time limit, 1 to 1 interview to discuss your development experience focusing primarily on how much unpaid out of hours self training you did per week and how much Test Driven Development experience you had. There was also an emphasis on peer pressure to attend regular weekend developer TDD conferences (in London) again unpaid and expected to be self funded as far as entrance tickets, hotels etc.
