    I have been working at White Clarke Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Convenient office location North Sydney.

    Cons

    Outdated technology and methodology. Many employees provide feedback on improvements but management is too proud to listen. They only care about getting money in their pockets they dont care about employees. They make us work long hours even though you make them aware of your personal circumstances. Managers will bully us if we don’t do as told. You only get promoted based on relationship with senior management.

    Nice people to work with and very good office location with good views. Lot to learn in terms of domain if new to asset finance.

    Pros

    some friendly staff, management does not know what employees do so they can relax

    Cons

    UK management team does not know how to run a company. they are horrible with staff and always feel superior. the culture is very toxic. staff are not valued but they want staff to work hard, extra hours with no compensation. they dont trust other offices in other regions so they control everything. staff are sick of them. many are leaving for lower pay because they cant stand the management.

    Outdated technologies. I was told as java developer but there are too many works with dojo which is outdated.

    Thank you for your feedback and pleased to hear you are enjoying the new office space. Our product team are working to migrate to an Angular platform and Java 8, this is large project but is well under way.

    I have been working at White Clarke Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Growing business, new clients have been signed up recently. 2. People are very helpful and supportive. Everyone knows the bigger picture and works towards a single goal. 3. Flat organisation structure, no much hierarchy around, no bureaucracy 4. The company seems to be good in hiring people. They have hired many developers in my team during the last one year and a couple of testers. The new people were up to speed in no time and fit into the culture very well.

    Cons

    1. Outdated technology. I would rather code in AngularJS or TypeScript than Dojo. 2. Outdated mindset. This manifests itself in many ways -  Waterfall methodology is still being used -  Very strict office timings. Too much importance given to hours spent in office. Working from home is discouraged. -  Formal dressing is mandated. Most of us here are technical people who do a lot of thinking every day, work with our computers and almost never meet any clients. We will be more comfortable with casual dressing.

    I have been working at White Clarke Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    No bureaucracy, open door policy. Environment is mostly harmonious but not without challenges. Everyone works towards a common goal.

    Cons

    Given it's a small sized company, there is not much room to move around but managers would ensure that employees are involved and interested.
