    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei Lab49 gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    - New projects generally use latest (stable) technologies - You get to move around teams and work with different people - Free subscription to Udemy - Generally pretty fun company events

    Kontras

    - Cares more about getting things done quickly than making a good application - Moving between projects means you might get moved off your favorite project - Might kick you out early if you give them notice of resignation, without pay - Wants a 12 week (!) resignation notice (instead of 2) - Constantly understaffed* - Hiring practices are lengthy and outdated (they ask about prototypical inheritance sometimes) -...

    Rat an das Management

    Don't tell workers you "appreciate" them when you're not going to show it. Stop having DC people interview NY candidates; they always ask about culture and we never know what to say. Please get some onsite HR or office admin at the DC office.

  2. "Uncertain times"

    Ehem. Mitarbeiter - Developer 

    Ich habe bei Lab49 gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Bonuses are a tiny part of total compensation so you don't need to worry about performance reviews.

    Kontras

    Senior management quit in London and New York but never replaced. Think very hard if joining from a major corporation as you'll certainly notice the huge drop in professionalism - bonus date and amount is shrouded in secrecy (although guaranteed to be later and smaller every year.) Hiring is deliberately sabotaged by management. Benefits are confusing and even hidden from you, employer pension contribution is statutory...

    Pros

    The other reviews on here give you a fair warning - avoid at all costs. There were once plenty of smart people here, though almost all have left.

    Kontras

    Senior management have all quit and not been replaced, no internal structure whatsoever, projects are drying up, way behind the innovation curve.

    Akt. Mitarbeiter - Software Engineer 

    Ich arbeite bei Lab49 (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    UX and engineering pleasantly ego free for a consultancy.... shame same can't be said for business/ management!!

    Kontras

    Crazy policy of having no BAs or QAs then strong blame culture when things go wrong.... unsurprisingly employee turnover is high!!

  5. "Nice place to work"

    Akt. Mitarbeiter - Anonymer Mitarbeiter in London, England

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei Lab49 ()

    Pros

    Despite some of the reviews on here the people are lovely

    Kontras

    Senior management team mostly work from home which leads to a lack of direction and an empty office

    Rat an das Management

    You could be more proactive

    Ehem. Mitarbeiter - Anonymer Mitarbeiter 

    Ich habe bei Lab49 gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    interesting work in and around the financial industry, a good way to get into this field

    Kontras

    you'll expend a lot of your time and energy wondering when/if your bonus is going to be paid, explaining to payroll how pensions work and trying to establish what benefits are still left

    Ich arbeite seit weniger als einem Jahr bei Lab49 als Vollzeit

    Pros

    Event with the awful historical reviews, I decided to give it a try and joined Lab49 in LDN. It seems most of the tensions were in the past and localised to NY. + biggest part of the LDN team joined within the last year. people are nice and always eager to help. + focus on up-skilling individuals and keeping up-to-date on tech (I really appreciate this since I used to have to do it in my own time) + fast paced, big...

    "Avoid"

    SternSternSternSternStern
    Akt. Mitarbeiter - Senior Consultant in New York, NY

    Ich arbeite bei Lab49 (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Salary competitive but nothing else

    Kontras

    In common with other ION acquisitions uncertainty over bonuses, reduced benefits, high staff turnover, incompetent personnel and a tarnished reputation leads to low morale among team members

    Akt. Mitarbeiter - Anonymer Mitarbeiter 

    Ich arbeite bei Lab49 (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Lots of promotions, although very US centric, only US staff promoted this year.

    Kontras

    Bonus never paid on time, later and later every year not even bothering to make excuses anymore. Make potentially hires wait several months for an offer to save money, saves even more money as they pull out and demoralized staff quit due to lack of resources.

    Rat an das Management

    Realise why tier 1 banks and high quality candidates no longer want anything to do with you.

    Ich habe bei Lab49 gearbeitet ()

    Pros

    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...

    Kontras

    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.

    Rat an das Management

    Be realistic about what the company is these days.
