All their claims in the website are downright false. First of all pay attention to the pictures in the website: These represent their whole office (a single room). They rent a single room from a workspace provider. They don't even have a HR manager in Dublin.

Terrible work environment where aggressiveness and intimidation rule. Management is complicit (don't bother to complain). Most of their staff speak broken English and don't follow the most basic procedures for software development. Also, most of them don't like Clojure nor functional programming and are very vocal about their discontentment. Clojure was just a way to lure good developers in. Don't fall for it. It's a trap. Keep distance, specially if you love your craft.

Also they are not a real startup, they are a branch from a traditional company in the dental insurance business named MCNA. The product that they have been (unsuccessfully by the way) trying to deliver is quite dull. No opportunity for innovation.

They have been trying to remove bad reviews from Glassdoor. Terrible and dishonest people from top to bottom.

They make very difficult for employees to post honest negative reviews. They will simply remove your review claiming that violates community guidelines without pointing out specific reasons or passages in your review that violate such guidelines.

Contacting help desk doesn't help much. They seem to barely understand English. You get a very strong feeling that messages from customer support are heavily scripted. I googled for the person specifically replying to my complaint and I could not find her on Linkedin. But from the name, I don't think the person is a English native speaker.

If you make any specific questions, staff simply won't answer. All you get is scripted gibberish. It's like trying to start a conversation with a voice activated toaster. They surely don't seem qualified to moderate reviews.

Beware as they are tricky: They will approve your review quickly and remove it a couple of days later without any warning to avoid having to engage in a discussion with the reviewer. I know of people that weren't even aware that their negative reviews had been removed.

I did have a couple of reviews published after submitting several times with minor re-wordings, but takes a large amount of patience.

I would say that if other people are having the same hard time publishing negative reviews on Glassdoor I'm having (and they seem to have, just google), people should probably take any negative review published very seriously.

Also, if you are careful analyzing reviews, you will find many one-liner reviews with 5 stars right after a negative review is posted. These look suspiciously fake. Their purpose seem to be pushing negative reviews to the back. It's worth to mention that the company rating do not take in consideration the number of times it was marked as "Helpful". It's simply the average of all reviews no matter if they have been marked as "Helpful" or not, so take company review rates with a pinch of salt and always read the reviews carefully, specially the negative ones.
