I worked at 4th Source full-time (more than a year)

Pros

- The company has several projects to be developed.
- Good team environment.
- Nice attitude towards the employee treated as a human being.

Cons

- Wages sometimes are not the best considering if you work in Mexico, sometimes you will be assigned to go to USA. Your salary will remain the same plus travel allowances.
- Most of the times you don't get to choose the project you will be working for the next months. They are assigned to you as well as your team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good job in general. Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    4th Source has a unique foundation upon which presents the opportunity for growth but they don’t have the management team to execute. If you're looking for a temporary job (3 months) and you like being constantly berated and abused, this is a perfect place for you!

    Cons

    Constant turnover - The entire Sales and Marketing organizations along with the CEO were fired or quit within less than one year. Most within less than 6 months.
    Zero leadership - no one is driving this bus and it's rapidly heading for a cliff.
    Brutally hostile environment - the leadership is incompetent and extremely manipulative. There is a culture of aggression and disrespect. No small business leadership experience and extremely unprofessional behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is really advice to the absentee owners - Start Over! Hire competent management leadership with small business / start up experience.

    Pros

    None that I can think off

    Cons

    Leadership is untouchable and doesn't even talk or worry about employees so every decision falls into one person located in Merida, Mexico. Long days (9+ hours), they will tell you anything to hire you, company values are not enforced, career paths are irrelevant they will put you to work in any project without any training even if you don't know the tool just to bill for your time, they hire anyone just say you want the job and it's yours, work-life balance is the worst I spent the longest's days of my life in there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasting client's and employee's time by randomly assigning anyone to a project and invest in HR, they have no clue of what they're doing. Be honest, don't hire anyone just because good technical people is hard to find.
