    I have been working at Kainos full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Looks after their employees. Great Training. High level of skill. Opportunity for Travel. Flexible. Opportunity to move roles - I have been an coder, support engineer, architect, manager, consultant, and am now in sales.

    Cons

    Growing quite quickly and it's taking supporting functions (travel, finance etc.) a while to catch up. In my view only.

    I have been working at Kainos full-time

    Pros

    Remote working available; somewhat flexible work schedule

    Cons

    Disjointed teams because of remote work and non-NA focused parent company (severe misunderstanding of competitive salaries). Projects are limited and smaller contracts mean everyone is allocated to numerous projects without a lot of workload consistency. Poor communication by project managers around expectations. Inexperienced teams on projects leads to a lot of misunderstanding and mishandling of projects - very little opportunity for mentoring or true learning experiences. Company very hesitant to provide non-billable codes for learning opportunities and most senior employees are over-allocated and unable to spend time with new employees to help them learn. Senior leadership is not well-connected to the NA workforce. Very sales driven and projects are signed without considering capacity or team ability.
