Senior Collection Agent | Dublin | 3 Mar 2020
Messy place, great fun, lots of challenges
This work place is quite unique, you will meet people from all over the world, and thanks to a great Job Culture make lots of friends This place is a great starting point in your career but you won't be paid much compared to other companies and given the tasks/responsibilities you will have Several times they "helped" my find the right role given my skills but not much has changed In general I would never leave if they would pay me enough or find the right job for my skills
Proslike a big family: is nice to work with you friends
Conslike a big family: some great people sometimes poor leadership, wage

Sales Lead | Ireland | 25 Apr 2019
Growth Mindset culture is real
The cultural transformation after Satya Nadella took over as CEO was a very real and positive development. The team culture is excellent but expect to work hard and you need to gain necessary experience and deliver performance before you progress in further roles.
