Don't be fooled by first impressions....

Senior Engineer (Former Employee)
Pleasanton, CA

I worked at ExtraTeam

ProsSalary is above average for IT consulting, but you more than pay the price for it.

ConsEveryone works in silos...There is no knowledge sharing, no mentorship for growth. Management will love you if you bill a ton of hours, but watch out if you screw up or make a mistake at a client site. Prepare for major embarrassment and finger pointing, at this will happen at times, in front of everyone else at the team meetings. In lean times, prepare to conjure up your own work, as management disdains bench time. Certifications are a priority, and your salary is dependent on them. However, how well you do at your client sites is often overlooked by management, and you will most likely never be properly appreciated here.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees are your base and your source of income...Don't think for a second that your success if the result of your ingenuity and management of your company. It is the employees that drive your company and make it the success that it is...It behooves you to treat them with more respect than you've shown.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
