    Pros

    Competitive salary. Many excellent engineers. Blitz spirit.

    Cons

    Chaotic strategy, extreme short-term perspective. Poor quality software product output due to lack of engineering processes. Weak upper management. Customers control day to day activities. Mis-use of senior technical personnel. Focus on share price rather than product strength.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on how to avoid crises in the future rather than simply putting out this week's biggest fire. Remember this was once an engineering company and not a vehicle for shareholder value generation.

    Pros

    Not much pressure of work when you are working in India. The timings are quite flexible and not required to work from 9:00 to 6:00. You can come late too. The salary is average or I can slightly higher than average in India. Although, it depends entirely on how you have negotiated. You can expect 1.5 to 1.6 multiplied by you number of experience for your salary.

    Cons

    1. They don't offer transfer permanently to other sites. 2. They pay low when you are on site. 3. They ask people to work on business visa on other countries. 4. Not much hike, if you are working for many years in Pace. 5. The company is highly unstable, they change their policies every week.

    Advice to Management

    PACE should be more employee friendly. They shouldn't ask people to work on business visa to other countries. They should apply for work permit for the employees. Working on business visa is illegal and will ban the employee passport for ever. They should have a steady policies and the policies shouldn't change every week.

    Pros

    Relatively good rates of pay and bonus scheme

    Cons

    Since Neil Gaydon and the UK Exec team were removed and the key operations transferred to the US, the turnover of staff has increased with 10 hour working days been the norm for many people. Until the appointment of the current Chairman this was a great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retaining key staff rather than just on keeping the share price up

    Pros

    Because of the nature of the work, long hours are not always necessary. The salary is not bad, technical knowledge sharing is prevalent.

    Cons

    HR policies are a pain, the finance team is almost invisible, very unprofessional over all. The organizational structure leaves too much room for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Try keeping the HR policies more transparent, and without some regulations for those, too many employees and former employees have broken bridges and would not like to be associated with the company in any form again.
