    I have been working at Cequint full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very good, consistent and emerging company. Good culture it has. Good at work & life balance - you can be more flexible than other companies.

    Cons

    No additional compensation at all. Don't expect to much other than salary. Health insurance is not 100% covered by company so you have to pay lots of money.

    I worked at Cequint full-time

    Pros

    Nice office buildings and flexible hours. Pets are allowed in the office and you can work from home to avoid the commute frequently

    Cons

    Purchased by Transaction Network Services which then allowed a private equity firm (Siris) to destroy the future of the company. Management was inept prior to the buyout and things have not improved. This has also caused several product launches to be significantly delayed or canceled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Surrendra should be deported back to India. The rest of Cequint management should seek a way out of TNS and try to rebuild the company that was lost.

    Um, wow Cequint puts the FUN in dysfunctional

    I worked at Cequint full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    no pros that I can think of. Hm, well, they did get mac computers for everyone.

    Cons

    Where do I start? A bunch of whiny underachievers in Seattle led by a cheerleader CEO who couldn't manage his way out of a paper bag, backed up by a group of backstabbing engineers in Florida. The TNS acquisition was the death of the company. Its just gone down hill from there. Even as a small company, they were more intererested in screwing over other teams than doing their own job. It has just gotten worse since.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is too late!

    I have been working at Cequint full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Was a good small company
    Decent health insurance

    Cons

    Cequint now has developers in Seattle and Florida offices. The team in Florida thinks that they are superstars and one particular person humiliates Seattle employees and the management. The irony is that the management allows such bad behavior. In most other companies, such behavior would have resulted in that individual being fired, but not in Cequint. The management must really believe in the capabilities of its Florida team, otherwise why would such behavior be tolerated? Many senior employees have left the company for this very reason.

    Layoffs have been happening, but that can be attributed to unsuccessful products and being acquired by TNS and then Siris capital.

    Not a good place to work anymore.

    I have been working at Cequint full-time

    Pros

    The company provides a lot of opportunities to learn and the culture is very engineer-friendly. Personal initiative is encouraged and we are all invested in the success of the company. I'm lucky my coworkers and teammates are some of the most competent and fun colleagues I've ever had.

    Cons

    no weekly massage sessions which would be really nice for my back and shoulders.

    I have been working at Cequint full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of talented and experienced people. That makes a challenging and ego-driven environment at times, but the overall take-away is the chance to learn from that wide variety of experience. Overall, it's a big win.

    Cons

    Compared to other places I've worked, there are none to speak of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice at this time: I find them generally superior to the management at any other place I've worked and have learned a lot of good things from management as well as from the technical gurus.

    Pros

    Some nice benefits there and some of the peers are good people.

    Cons

    A lot of politics and the senior management do a really good job of saying the right things but don't actually practice what they preach about being open with information and having everyone be as important as anyone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many managers. Also should follow through with the things they brag about regarding the company's culture.
