Does Kainos offer unlimited holiday?

Pros

The overall culture is a fair and progressive one. Employees are treated as humans. The employee share scheme is a great initiative and sets an example for other organizations to follow. Casual dress code and flexible working hours, as well as the option to work from home makes Kainos a good employer. The impression you get is one that management genuinely does make an effort to make the company a good place to work for.

Cons

The company is growing and there are growth pains being felt in certain parts of the business. Some processes and systems are not adequate for the new work load and this can leave some staff with very time consuming and inefficient manual tasks. There can also be instances where the growth makes it clear that recruitment has not kept up with growth and teams can feel the pressure at times. Central/corporate employees have felt that they are treated differently to the rest of the business. Entertainment spend for these employees has noticeably been less than those in the BUs, as well as a feeling of overall lower pay and incentives compared to the other BUs, such as a referral payment scheme being taken away for central employees for a period of time but being kept in place for the rest of the firm. This makes central employees feel like they can , at times, be seen as purely a cost to squash and often leads to central employees leaving their roles for roles in other BUs or joining other firms.

Advice to Management

Invest more in central employees and their systems instead of treating their salaries and costs as a cost to squash. This may help lower central staff churn.
