    "Great for learning and progression at the entry level, but senior people are all jumping ship"

    I have been working at Context Information Security full-time

    Pros

    Amazing opportunities to learn and grow at the lower levels. Casual atmosphere. No rigid progression format - can get promoted at any time of year.

    Cons

    Poor at retaining senior people. Social occasions focused on drinking (industry wide problem). Back to back to back jobs leave no time for delays and no time for prep, and significant stress juggling all the deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    If all the experienced people leave then there's no advantage left over up and coming smaller consultancies because years of experience can't be replaced with just a degree and some hacking badges. I don't know what would keep them, but it's probably worth it if the alternative is that there's no one left.

    Penetration Tester Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Context Information Security (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    The interview was split in three-part ( Phone Call, Testing a Web App, Face 2 Face/ soft skills )
    I passed the first two stages but not the third one, but honestly, I do not agree with the feedback ( I suppose that my salary expectation was too high for them).
    After that I travelled for three hours and half of, I waited for 40 minutes the interviewer (very rude), also he doesn't look interesting in the interview, he doesn't showed me the office etc (very rushed interview).
    I would like to suggest to anybody want to apply for any role in the context try to do the last step via Skype (if you live far from them) and speak about the money before to start the interview otherwise you'll lose only the time
