    I have been working at Version 1 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Having worked in many, many different corporate environments throughout the years, the biggest pros of working at Version 1 have always been the people, their commitment to customers & the central value of "No Ego". Being able to chat through ideas with all levels of the business, feel that you're of value and contribute to impactful projects for customers makes you feel truly appreciated as an employee.

    Cons

    Annual Leave allowance could do with a review.

    Advice to Management

    It's extremely rare to be lucky enough to wake up every morning and genuinely look forward to work. Keep doing what you're doing.

      I have been working at Version 1 full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Version 1 continues to scale. With this comes huge opportunity to develop skills, switch technologies, work in different sectors and drive business value for fantastic customers. Ambitious vision and rock-solid shared core values.

      Cons

      Version 1 is a fast-paced environment and not for the faint-hearted. But if you like challenge and opportunity then this is definitely the place for you.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the regular communication and transparency.

      Pros

      I have worked at Version 1 for over a decade and have loved every minute . Each day brings something different; a new and more exciting challenge. Everyone I have worked with or have met in Version 1 has been outstanding. ‘Great People’ do join Version 1 and the people make Version 1 into the GREAT PLACE TO WORK that it is.

      I have been working at Version 1 full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Good thing about Version 1 is management is always talking about employee engagement and keeping employees happy. Managers are good and listen to team members (based on my experience).

      Cons

      You may need to take the pros with a pinch of salt. Company is trying hard to be best workplace in industry but the reality is far distant. In my view policies are really draconian and let me corroborate that point by point. 1. Employee have to give 2 months notice but the company is bound to give you only 1 month notice. So the discrimination starts even before you get inside the door. 2. V1 works on quarterly bonuses....

      Advice to Management

      If you really want to create a best place to work, you may need to relook at policies from fresh angle. Version 1 management always talk about treating people with respect and equality. But empty words with no action is not a self prophesy.
