    I have been working at Workplace Systems part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people, they are direct and honest and talented. Lots of variety. You get to do things in this business that you might not have the opportunity to be involved with in a larger company. We have collaboration at the heart of what we do. Both our colleagues and management team is very supportive. Our Company values and commitment to employee engagement have been at the heart of what we create in terms of product and the way we treat our colleagues and shape our culture. We have more growth ahead, which presents more opportunities. If you enjoy the feeling of happy slightly scary change you will enjoy working at Workplace.

    Cons

    I still don't always have enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do.

    I have been working at Workplace Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Workplace systems pride themselves on their software being employee centric, and they follow the same values internally. Communication and collaboration is highly valued and insisted on in a positive light. The new starter induction is well thought out to give fresh "paddlers" (If you want to know what a paddler is, come join) a full understanding of the company. Existing staff are friendly and are quick to introduce themselves and speak very highly of the management team. I can echo this view in my short time as they are approachable.

    Cons

    None that I have found so far, to be ultra picky the only thing would be that I've not found something but it does not concern me as they are transparent with issues.

    Thanks for the kind words: it really helps to know that you can have the intended impact. I genuinely don't believe we are covering up any issues but let's keep digging because we've still got a long way to go on our voyage. - David

    Pros

    Workplace has transformed over the last two years into a vibrant and exciting place to work. Having worked here for almost 10 years, I have never felt more positive about what is happening in the company. A solid management team, with a clear plan, and lots of new talented recruits have really raised the bar at Workplace. Some other highlights include: a nice office in a great location, a great social atmosphere, lots of new employee initiatives, new technologies and products, career opportunities, and an impressive customer portfolio. For anyone wanting to work or gain experience in Agile, Workplace is a truly Agile company and is constantly looking at ways of improving its processes across all functions. The company welcomes people with fresh ideas who want to stand out and make a difference.

    Cons

    There are a few legacy products with large, complex code bases that are difficult to maintain. Time and effort is already being invested to recover this technical debt.

    "A good time to join Workplace"

    Pros

    Workplace is the most supportive company I have ever worked for. They are always open-minded and ready to listen to constructive comments and actively encourage new ideas and innovative 'outside the box' thinking. If you are willing to do your job and have a flexible/can do/give and take attitude, Workplace will, in my experience, recognise this and treat you in the same way. They also have an 'Employee Engagement' team who listen to benefit-improvement suggestions from colleagues and recommend them to the management team where appropriate. Just one example of this process which has recently been approved and implemented is the 'Birtholiday' - an extra day's holiday for everyone to enable them to take their Birthday off without reducing their holiday entitlement!

    Cons

    There are no Workplace-specific 'Cons' I can think of. Any negative aspects would be generic to working for any comparable employers within this market/sector.

    I have been working at Workplace Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The best part of working at Workplace is the senior management team. They have a plan, know what they're doing, regularly communicate it to the business and everyone knows what their part is in it. Everyone has an opportunity to input and impact what is going on in the business. As a small company, the human element of the business is strong, we care about each other and you are supported to fulfil your potential. We don't have a dress code, we don't have to work on our birthday, we write on the walls, we have fun, but we do work hard!

    Cons

    Nothing that you don't find in any organisation, e.g the occasional issues with inter-department cooperation. We've changed a lot over the last two years (for the better)

    I have been working at Workplace Systems

    Pros

    The company has gone through many changes since I have worked here, but over the last 2 years changes and improvements have been promised and delivered which has not always happened before. The management team really want employee buy-in to their ideas and direction and welcome all feedback from employees because they know they need us to make it work, improve and grow. Having said all that, the biggest Pro of the company for me is the real team spirit we have in our teams and between teams to try and succeed for us and the company.

    Cons

    The last two years have been very challenging and hard work (which is not really a Con as I do not mind this), but at times it was hard to see the changes turning to improvements, but we stuck with it as a team, and these improvements are now coming to light on an employee level and company level.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, great people, fantastic drive, amazing passion from all those at every level. Great connection with a management team that care not just about their pay packages but about you as a person and employee. Atmosphere is electric and can give you a great buzz.

    Cons

    Not all of what needs to be done has been done so can be a pro or con depends. Need to do more to get viewing from prospects, need to re-examine the benefits packages, can be silos between departments.
