      Pros

      • you can learn a lot about technology, • some genuine good and kind people are working there

      Cons

      • Fenergo has organisation restructure every year, • Only way to progress career is to change department, • People on project are stretched and pushed to limits, • Its hard to tell direction where company is going there is a different story every year Company has good marketing so you shouldn't blindly trust everything you read in newspapers, • You read how "Fenergo turn pandemic crisis into opportunity but then on company update they announce no bonus and pay raise" • So many people left company but they manage to spin that story how they will hire another 100 people There is also mirage story about IPO but only upper management get share options

      Pros

      - Work with some really knowledgeable people - When in the office there is occasionally lunch provided - Office in a decent location

      Cons

      - Has a real finger pointing culture instead of helping employees grow and learn - A lot of expected overtime - Managers in positions without the adequate skills and experience - Upper management do not listen to idea's from employee's below them - No real career progression if you are not in the 'click' - Only project managers and product consultants get any praise when a project goes well but in the instance it goes bad it is the developers problem/fault - Too much is promised before starting a piece of work, which puts everyone on the back foot from the start

      Almost near impossible to progress in this company

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      They are a lot of good members of staff looking to progress their careers. A lot of hard and dedicated workers. Employees at a similar level are very supportive (it's management who are not supportive)

      Cons

      Where to begin.... The cracks in the company become apparent within half a year. As I said you have a lot of great and hard working people who will always give their best, however the feeling amongst a lot of employess since covid hit is pure demotivation. There is a lot of people in lead and management roles who get away with murder. There are a lot of employees in a lead role who are very good and then you have others who just delegate, delegate and delegate. Employees from Mid-level and below do not get their voice heard; your lead/line manager speaks for you n internal calls with management and nothing happens in return. I have heard on numerous occasions of leads taking credit (publicly I may add) for doing a piece of work that was done by someone at my level or similar. You will be asked to work the odd weekend or evening which is understandable and the leads on your project will be present too; it would be nice though if they actually added value to this overtime and be active with testing/developing rather than letting the people below do all the work and then take credit on internal management calls for work they did not do or help with. I have been on projects where I have had to guide my QA lead in how to test the product, how to do certain types of testing/pieces of work which doesn't seem right. You have people you know how to work management very well, as in you have people who say the right things and get themselves in a kliq with the right people and you see very odd/illogical promotions within the company. No one is perfect. That is human nature. Unfortunately if you do one thing 'wrong' or 'not to managements liking' with maybe a task for example; your reputation takes a big hit and seem to outweigh all the good things and the value you have brought to the company.

      Pros

      Great culture, smart colleagues, flexible working arrangements, great little perks hampers gift vouchers etc. Very supportive and just a nice place to work overall.

      Cons

      Work life balance can be an issue on some projects. Management structure is to decentralised which can mean accountability gaps. Big enough company but still has start up mentality. Suffering from some growing pains.
