    Pros

    Most of my professional experience gained in this organization, starting from the lowest positions, I learned many facets of professionals, from software development, through project management, management of an area, to assist in strategic decisions of the organization.

    Cons

    Many important decisions volatility of organization and vision of the way we work and organize teams. Important challenges in changing the mindset of many areas and teams.

    Former Employee - Product Specialist in Quito (Ecuador)

    I worked at Cobiscorp full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work environment is OK, since there´s a lot of teamwork and people is friendly. You can work with new technology in some cases. Company has presence in Latin America from a good 20+ years of current products, actually the company has more than 40 years.

    Cons

    - No training at all levels. If you are lucky can be part of a selected group of people for training. (try to be flatterer with key managers)
    - Top Management is continuously loosing direction and does not make decisions on time
    - Sales force is quite lazy, do not collaborate but always complain about lack of products.
    - People is always looking for a new work place

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the top management, you need proactive people with solid knowledge of Management. A lot of money has been lost because of bad management since 2004.

    Current Employee - Product Specialist II in Quito (Ecuador)

    I have been working at Cobiscorp full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company with presence in several banks in South America and the Caribbean. You can deploy to other countries in case that you are assigned to foreign projects. They do manage diverse levels of technology and are trying to implement SCRUM. There is some degree of flexibility with your personal life, in case of needing time for attending your personal business is possible to obtain consent.

    Cons

    Management fail constantly to move people in a specific address, they are always struggling with decisions and is quite rare to have a fixed decision. People is managed as legos and many do not feel career improvement since the company philosophy looks like being firefighters instead a world class company. Some positions are gained due personal favors. There is a circle of people that is always favoured. Salesforce is incongruent with company´s objectives, and look like they do not want to invest in post-sales actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some heads need to be cut at management to have a fresh new start. Some managers are lazy at decision making, others just speak and do nothing. Mr. Owner. please wake up.

    Pros

    Cobiscorp is a company that believes in its people, with over 500 employees across Latin America driving regional software development.

    High-level financial sector clients

    Healthy and pleasant work environment open to receiving input from employees.

    Cons

    Throughout the company’s 58 years, it has been in constant evolution, learning from past errors, improving processes, planning, management methodologies, but always looking towards the future and seeking to become a world class company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep management’s doors open in order to talk about aspects that, as employees, we have vested interest in- without hindrances due to hierarchy or position in the company.
    Continue improving our project planning and become a solid partner to clients and employees.

    I have been working at Cobiscorp

    Pros

    The company aims to be one of the largest in Latin America, has business in several countries in the region which makes it interesting to work.
    At work here is your chance to meet people from the financial industry.
    They give you the opportunity to travel and visit other countries.

    Cons

    The salary for workers is not fair, many people come to the company by the need to finish projects on time.
    The project planning is bad and that means that workers are poorly paid and poorly treated.
    Many of the times you work in the client's offices in uncomfortable places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No need to hire more staff but to raise the capabilities of its existing partners, towards this have proper planning and correct as this will make all projects are completed on time.
    Avoid abusing their workers work in uncomfortable offices, we deserve a better deal on your part.
