The company is growing too fast and and all staff and management is not as it should.
All process, since hiring and management is poorly professional.

Loads of colleagues complains with a massive tasks and responsibilities for one single person without guidance and plenty of time spent on rework.

HR is a mess, at least salary is mediocre according to market.

Long hours of work, terrible environment if you are women and foreigner.
Pros
Salary is fair, nothing less.
Cons
Long hour, poor management, useless HR, small company disguised, bullies

Nice staff to work with & friendly environment....Kirby fail miserably to directly acknowledge potential in a person with a clicked culture within the management structure of the company mainly experienced at director to project manager levels which ultimately holds a person back thus one eventually quits & moves on to another employer.

Great craic if you get in the right team.
Rare perm contract offers for agency staff.

If your agency there isn't a hope of them keeping you in fear of litigation.

Enjoy your time but get out before your contract ceases, dont burn bridges.
Pros
Free Jacket
Cons
No opportunities to grow.

Nice company to work for, work as a valued part of a team, included in the goings on and problem solving.
Salary levels are reasonable, not excellent. There are no additional benefits, i.e. health insurance, pension contribution or bonus.

Annual leave accrual is unusual, earn to use type arrangement which will only accrue if one takes little to no annual leave. Leaves staff clinging to few measly hours. Covers a mediocre summer holiday and no choice time off over Christmas period, leaves the rest of the year stretched very thin.
Pros
Experienced senior staff to learn from
Cons
long hours at times, no additional benefits such as health insurance, pension or bonus
