    Avantages

    Looks like most of the reviews on here are people who worked at lab when it was taken over by ION, it's a common pattern as their model is to purchase companies and cut them to the bone by forcing employees out.

    Very few people are left from the pre-ION days in London so it's pretty much a clean slate as they are rebuilding from scratch.

    Compared to working for ION, Lab49 is very pleasant, laidback place to work although you have to put up with the same HR and mangerial incompentance.

    Inconvénients

    Don't expect exciting projects, London is very much a satelite office these days so you'll generally be supporting offshore teams which limits the type of projects which can be taken on.

    Conseils à la direction

    Be realistic about what the company is these days.

    Je travaille chez Lab49 à plein temps (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    Contracts are limited to the financial space which can provide in depth exposure to interesting work. Top notch talent and collaborative environment provides opportunity to learn and grow. Many "underground" perks like nicely stocked kitchen, flexible work arrangements, mobile phone subsidy and fairly regular happy hours. Contracts can be short term which allows variety. Treated as a pro.

    Inconvénients

    Contracts can be short which generates 'flux'. Transitional office vibe due to people working from home or at client sites. Doesn't cultivate a "one team" spirit if that's important to you.

    Conseils à la direction

    Prior to joining, I had a lot of apprehension based primarily on things I'd read on Glassdoor. I can honestly say, my concerns were allayed within just a few months of joining. The DC office is very professional without a hint of toxicity. Communication is good and the monthly All Hands help a lot with gaining visibility into other projects and offices. All in all keep it up.

    The one change I'd recommend is to vastly improve the speed of the hiring process. Being outside of the typical DC contracting business model you don't have a prime or government client slowing things down so you should leverage that to your advantage.

    Avantages

    Looks good on resume because of reputation for tech talent consultants have

    Inconvénients

    Luke Flemmer, AP, et al suck. They are HORRIBLE PEOPLE who could care less about you and your career. People are commodities nothing more. Leading by fear is weak and very 2008. I'll be here another 6 months then I'm out.

    Conseils à la direction

    It's 2019. Stop being misogynists and PAY MARKET RATE. Notice how many people have left? Wonder why?

    Avantages

    Office view and free snacks

    Inconvénients

    Everything. People are unfriendly and rude. Every person is protecting his own work and withholding information. Senior Management teams has people who can't even sell toilet paper and try to act like they are "technically savvy and know how to manage" There are also useless new college grads who obviously cannot get jobs elsewhere act like they're are God's gift to people

    Conseils à la direction

    Nothing as they are not capable of improvement

    Avantages

    The people are the main reason I stay here. Bright, engaged and passionate about their work. I think it's a rare chance to work with people who are experts in their field. Lots of interesting and challenging projects to work on. .

    Inconvénients

    Colleagues are at different projects around the city and can't see them as often as you would like - so you need to be intentional about connecting when you are both in the home office.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep improving communication about company goals and direction so we can all be on board. Town hall meetings are usually very helpful and inspiring.

    Consulting grinds you down. No training, no learning. Too many late nights and weekends. Paltry bonus, if one was even granted. Dead end.

    The best part of working at Lab49 was working side by side with bright, talented engineers who actively wanted to do a good job. I learned so much there from my coworkers and they provided invaluable career experience. While the hiring process is very rigorous and challenging, the software engineers they hire truly are top notch.

    Inconvénients

    The clients in the DC office were using antiquated technology and the work was not always exciting. Due to the lack of diverse clients in the DC office at the time, work was not
