    Pros

    This company started like a START-UP. It has gone through a transition phase and getting matured .Every company go through the phase of confusion before they matured. This company did make some initial mistake and learn from it . They are on right path to success. Excellent pay , good culture, decent leadership.
    This company did make a mistake of hiring bad developer / analyst who wanted to do just whining and gets frustrated for a small thing. They never contributed any thing for the company but created lot of negative perception . Now those employees are shown doors, UTi employees are more motivated and sharing the goal of success. Great career building opportunity. If you can do attitude and want to be successful in software / logistic industry, join UTi.

    Cons

    Agile is not fully adopted. Office culture is great but some time things get confusing because of fast changing priorities. Coordination across groups needs to be better managed. It is causing lot of frustration. Leadership needs to stick to their decision and let team deliver it . Manage the expectation of business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you have HR ? There presence is not felt. Hire good developer who wants to code rather than whine or be negative all the time . Clean up baggage by showing whiners the door . They are creating negative perception of the company. Have clear direction on process which needs to be followed. Revisit your architecture . Improve relationship across organization.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at UTi Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    Three interviews. First was a primary screen with the manager on the phone, and then this was followed up by 2 in-person interviews with the team and manager at a later time. The team was very positive and I fit in with them very well. They helped create a relaxing environment, told jokes, etc. This was one of the more positive interviewing experiences I had.

    Interview Questions
    • Predominantly general troubleshooting questions, as well as questions about difficult situations I've run into with customers or various technologies such as apache or tomcat, servers, etc.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The salary was much lower than market value for the area and was completely non-negotiable, take-it or leave-it.

    Declined Offer
