What are the best and worst things about your company?
Working for an aspirational company that values the happiness of its employees above all else. However, also high on the agenda are contributing positively to the community and those less fortunate than ourselves which is fantastic. Closer to home, we also aim to provide services of the highest quality and try to improve knowledge and delivery constantly.I have to pay the Severn Bridge toll to get home from work and parking fees in Bristol.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The work atmosphere is great and generally relaxed and fun. We have a pool table, Wii room and office piano as well as plenty of social events! (Board games, trips to the theatre, Friday pub, ...) Your wishes and needs are always respected and you're constantly being asked whether there's anything that could be improved or whether there's anything they can help you with or do for you. Moreover these things actually happen - I've made suggestions that got put into practice the next week!A number of people work quite long hours (of their own free will) so you can end up feeling guilty for just working a regular day, even though in fact that's absolutely fine by the company... Same goes for taking time off ill.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Softwire was founded by three programmers who wanted to make a place they would enjoy working for. Making Softwire awesome to work for has remained the primary goal of the company. As part of that we output exceptionally high quality code, giving me pride in my work each day.We hire only the best. So the interviews are technically very challenging.
