    I have been working at Version 1 full-time for more than 20 years

    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’m a great believer and promoter of the Version 1 core values. They are not just lip service...they...

    Cons

    There is little downside to Version 1, and after ten+ plus years in the firm no negatives

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving 'us' forward, always aiming to be better than we were yesterday

      Pros

      A really ambitious company that believes in empowering employees to drive the business forward. New ideas are welcomed.

      Cons

      Things move at a fast pace, the company works well for people who are self-starters

      I have been working at Version 1 full-time for more than 20 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.

      I have been working at Version 1 full-time for more 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.

      Pros

      High growth business which means career opportunities for all employees - Top 5 in Great Place to Work consistently , Core Values focused and despite growth rate, flat management structure remains so opportunity for all to make an impact.

      Cons

      BREXIT may have impact

      I have been working at Version 1 full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Flexible working hours (I'm office based) City Centre location (I'm office based) Encouragement to up-skill

      Cons

      Second rate offices - lack of toilets, seats in canteens, etc... basic things Just 20 days Annual Leave... far below par compared to other major IT companies in Ireland Pay increases seem to be solely around CPD Levels.... my role alone seems to be 25% below current market rate in Dublin and I've increased CPD in the past 6 months Lack of time to up-skill... contradiction somewhat to my Pros but they encourage you...

      Advice to Management

      Given the huge amount of available IT jobs in Dublin at present, Management really need to address salary increases and incentives/benefits - 20 days Annual Leave for example is fairly shambolic for a company which is ranked in Great Places to Work. Without these being addressed, staff will look elsewhere and it will become harder to attract new staff. I've personally been headhunted this week by a recruiter for a role...

      I have been working at Version 1 full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      With rapid growth comes lots of opportunity - thats not something you will find in many organisations. If you feel you have expertise and ambition which is not being harnessed then Version 1 is the place to look for your next career move. I made that decision just over 5 years ago and havent looked back !

      Cons

      Having a customer base across Ireland and the UK can mean a lot of travel at key periods in tbe year

      Advice to Management

      Keep striving to "build something special" at Version 1 - belonging to a company that does things differently and just doesnt follow others is a real differentiator to both employees and customers.

      I have been working at Version 1

      Pros

      - CPD framework is beneficial - Good bonus structure - Middle Management are good

      Cons

      - Upper Management seems to not understand their employees - Growth isn’t being managed well - Pay is well below market rates in my experience - Expected to do 2 - 3 hours of unpaid evening work a week outside of “client hours” - Inconsistent and fragmented experience across the company and no focus on rectifying this

      Advice to Management

      The people make V1 what it is, treat them as such

      I have been working at Version 1 full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Flexible . Anything you want to do you can get involved in - but you need to show progress which is not a bad thing. Dublin Office right in city centre which is excellent. Suits me for career after many years both in and out of head office

      Cons

      Office needs a revamp so theres that
