I have been working at Simeio full-timeRecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
I feel there is no shortage of opportunity and that I am provided the opportunity to lead and grow as much as I am motivated to. A lot of trust is given to all of us and I don't feel pigeon-holed into a particular role, project or technology set.
Simeio has many driven, talented people. Everyone is wiling to help out whenever needed.
Most have the opportunity to work from home, which creates a good work/life balance. The trick is managing the workload, which can be heavy given the growth of the company.
As a fast growing company, things aren't always as structured and organized as I am used to in larger companies. Communication can be more casual/ad-hoc compared to larger companies.
It takes some adjustment to the pace and culture and ways of getting help, etc.
Advice to Management
Work on resource utilization balancing across projects so that some people aren't strained by workload - also so that more experienced consultants/architects are more available for mentoring and leading others.

- Declined OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 9+ months – interviewed at Simeio (Bangalore (India)) in March 2013.
Very very slow and mostly these people hire only when are many projects where your skill match. They try to sell the job and negotiate in all factors like salary, notice period, designation etc etc. These people can also change their salary structure for one employee by adding / removing some variable component. These people expect you to wait for their offer months together and same time to be very talents with no other offers in hand. These people might pay well, but they will make sure to take 2-3 people work out of you, which will affect work life balance drastically.

Reasons for Declining
