    I have been working at Fenergo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Growing fast so every day is fast paced and different.
    Transparency - there are company updates every quarter (which turn into a great night!) and the management tell us everything about business performance, the product, and the next plans.
    Cool people -Everyone is genuinely nice, passionate, and hard working.
    The CEO cares a LOT about the teams and likes to be involved in smaller details too - he's pretty down to earth in my experience!
    Opportunities to grow within the company - which is great for seeing a future here.
    Referrals & bonuses - really encouraged to recommend people for positions here and rewarded well for it

    Cons

    Same with any company, when there's deadlines, things can get stressful. I don't think that it's specific to Fenergo.
    As we are now in two offices a few minutes away from eachother, it can be a while between seeing people in the other office

    Advice to Management

    Standing desks please

  4. "A great place to work"

    Pros

    While every company has problems as does Fenergo, I can say that people here are open to new ideas and ways of work and willing to try new things. The management team are approachable and you get the feeling that the structure is very flat with no perceived hierarchy. These qualities are hard to find in companies and I believe Fenergo has a winning approach here. The core value in the culture is accepting others views and adapting and trying new things. Hope is always high that your idea will get considered. The people working here really are the companies best asset and its a privalige to work with such great people.

    Cons

    While things are improving, there is high movement of people between teams and this is damaging to the teams and the culture. Its dealt with in a good way and everyone understands but the impact is still there.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to keep teams stable and have a cut off of changes to priority on what must be built next. Overall thank you for all your hard work and approachable nature. Its certainly noticed and appreciated.

    I have been working at Fenergo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great training and knowledge sharing opportunities when time allows. Also has a great IT support team.

    Cons

    Process heavy and not compatible with current delivery deadlines. Long hours needed (and expected) to complete phased deliveries to clients.

    Great people. Fun work environment. Lots of career and development opportunities. Focus given to socialising together including a very entertaining internal Christmas song competition!

    Constantly busy with everything a priority!

    More reflection before jumping in to get things done!

    I have been working at Fenergo full-time

    Pros

    I read some of the reviews and think I must be on a different stratosphere. Fenergo has grown rapidly with each employee delivering quality and developing Fenergo culture. All I have to do is deliver on my part. Too many pros to mention.

    Cons

    I have to click a mouse. 🐁 Thank God it's not alive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Hard work is paying off.

    "Horrible due to its culture"

    I worked at Fenergo full-time

    Pros

    None.

    Absolutely none.

    They attract you with money but that's all.

    Cons

    They thought that they were ready for change but they were NOT.
    When I opened up about an issue with the Product Owner to HR, I was not listened to. Instead, I was fired within a week. They preferred believing the Product Owner who was there longer. At that time, I didn't sue them because it would cost me too much money. + I wanted to leave anyway since I couldn't change anything in their product. However, they were actually in breach. HR should have given me some warnings first before laying me off right away.

    Definitely far from a flat structure like most of software companies out there.

    No flexibility. No possibility to work from home except for some of the staff. So, not everyone was treated the same.

    Bad environment for designing. Too many meetings for nothing. Too much management.

    Advice to Management

    Train your HR staff to listen to both sides of the story instead of just nodding to senior management.

    Make sure that management doesn't always employ their friends from previous companies. This can create a biased view of the work and be difficult to change.

    Pros

    Infrastructure is good, everything is new and you get whatever you need to work.

    Cons

    Every day is like a funeral inside the office
    Higher management makes you feel bad and stupid all the time
    Second level management thinks they know everything and take all final decisions even if you prove them wrong.
    Except on events, there's no laugh, no fun, no joy in your day to day work.
    People are like robots and there is no recognition of achievements

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of old employees that are not up to date with the market best practices, and just want to avoid work, they are only making good professionals leave and the only ones staying longer are the ones that think like them.
