This is a dynamic company which has grown from 5 to 500 people in 20 years, and has a well established presence in the FinTech area, with big clients like HSBC.
Working there as a programmer you feel the pressure to deliver fast and high quality. Your coworkers are brilliant and most of them have already plenty of experience working for similar companies,
This is not a place to learn, you are supposed to already know lots of things and only improve them, and the constant pressure keeps everyone busy, so there is very limited support from your peers.
High-level management is OK, you may meet them sometimes after hours in the canteen and have a chat with them around a glass of drink, and they seemed to me common sense people
Low-level managers however, at least the ones I had to deal with, were the worst people I have ever meet: dishonest, back-stabbers, disrespectful and bully.
My [obvious] advice to anyone looking for a job here is to stay enough to improve your skills and leave immediately when you start feeling uncomfortable.
Great place to improve programming skills, subsidized lunches
Some low-level managers are dishonest, back-stabbers, bully.
