Flexibility for appointments, sickness, out of work responsibilities etc Before covid they had skilled staff, a huge morale, social functions, in office excitement and everyone seemed to have a purpose. Not the case anymore but this was a huge pro they had for a very long time. I had a great 4 years with MNFGroup/Symbio.
You can only grow to a certain point, including evolving (which doesn't always need expensive price tags & promotions). The morale and office environment that used to thrive is non-existent anymore. And no one seems to be working towards getting anything similar back. There are a lot of managers/higher up employees who have been there for 10+ years that need to take basic management courses because unfortunately they're lacking basic management skills and some are stuck in old-fashioned ways and for an innovative company that just doesn't work. My executive was the head of People Experience and when my role was made redundant I didn't hear anything from them, not even a "thanks & best of luck" - a bit sad & lacking really.

Work can be interesting, lots to learn, little management involvement in day to day
company is very lost cost and spends little on tools. budgets are tight. If you don't mind low frills then this place is OK for you.

Great people and work life balance is good
A lot. They are not ready to pay market price for some reason especially good talent. It is significantly under market price. Really unmotivated and probably won’t stay for long. No bonuses either. Grad program is way to long as well

Lovely people and an incredible culture. Remote-first culture which is always a plus. Lots of people willing to lend a helping hand. Really great work-life balance.
The graduate program is 2 years long without any rotations, which means that if you want to change streams, that is not possible. Very little training around the company's products and inconsistent expectations for all graduates with remuneration capped and set according to the graduate programme's guidelines. So if person A achieves more than person B, they will still be remunerated equally as the company has a policy through which graduates cannot each more than each other until they complete/exit the graduate program.

People are very nice, helpful and great to work alongside. Tech stack is new with Docker, AWS, ELK and more. Work-life balance is good for most employees
Architecture is complex to learn at first with 100s of micro services to remember.1

Great opportunities to grow and learn.
Can be chaotic at times, things are not always thought through from the top which negatively affects the staff.
