    I worked at Adeptra

    Pros

    Free Pizza lunch the first Wednesday of the month. Nice people to work with. Salary was competitive. Flexible work schedule and ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Sr. Leadership did not act quickly enough in dealing with resources constraints, especially off-shore resources. Priorities kept changing based on client escalations. Health benefits were costly and not very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of keeping resources lean so that they could make the company look more profitable before selling, you should have invested more in on-shore resources and stop telling each client they were the most important. Build the "module" before telling everyone that it was built.

    Pros

    It was a new technology

    I worked at Adeptra

    Pros

    Pay is very competitive. Dress attire is relaxed. Remote work is acceptable. Infrastructure is stable.

    Cons

    Number of working hours is arbitrary. Employment is based on constant fear of dismissal. Profane language abuse is tolerated as feedback. There is no sense of team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know all of your people firsthand. Other suggestions may help achieve company goals.

    I have been working at Adeptra

    Pros

    Professional environment and knowledgeable coworkers. Freedom to present a solution to a problem and have it earnestly considered. Middle management really looks after it's subordinates, and isn't demeaning when correcting incorrect behaviour. Management does try to work with subordinates to accommodate various situations. Good Wiki style documentation system that allows employees to update information that they come across.

    Cons

    Rotating schedule to specific positions, really messes with one's sleep pattern. Not many people can deal with a rotating schedule on a biweekly basis for a long period of time. This leads to frequent turnover. Proprietary technology makes troubleshooting more difficult. Frequent sense of urgency at the end of the month to get specific items done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change rotating schedule to a set schedule of some sort.

    I worked at Adeptra full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great small company, work from home allowing for certain advantages, good base salary with little motivation to achieve targets as commission wasn't balanced

    Cons

    the company lacked a clear vision and direction, constantly flipping priorities, no work/life balance (fully expected to give your life away). started using bandaids to address problems, promoting people who made the most noise but didn't have the skill sets for the jobs at home.

    Pros

    Sadly, none at the moment.

    Cons

    About 3 years ago, on wake of rapid growth, number of middle managers appeared. Most of them are soulless and more importantly brainless bureaucrats with no respect for technical staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! Your technical staff is core value of your company! You cannot try to save money on them
