UK IT business - the bad and the ugly

Discusing the negative aspects, because we all know the positive. Was initially thinking of a long essay, but decided to split it into smaller pieces. First one is titled "Problematic business relationships" and is about the orientation of UK's IT industry (local copy).

Second is the "Kiske field" about hiring and promotions (local copy).

Last one is "culture shocks" about differences in business culture and conclusions (local copy).

Decided to write again on the subject after some experiences: Why I will never work again for a "London" company.

Some more thoughts on the companies that decide out of nowhere to onboard a very big client account: Problematic business relationships part 2, the cult of the one big client (local copy, hacker news link).


A list of posts originally in medium:

Startups - Articles in Greek

A series of articles in Greek about startups, mainly IT related. Written in Greek because of limited content available in that language as well as having an emerging small startup scene at the timeof writing. Posting as guest of tnfy blog not only because I liked it and wanted to contribute there, but also because the layout changes, the images and other contributions of the owner elevate copy's quality to the next level. Blog now defunct, outbound links from web archive.



Feta Report:

A podcast in Greek about immigration and living abroad, more specific to United Kingdom.
