I worked at SOTI as an intern (more than an year)

Pros

Great work environment. Everyone is friendly and knowledgeable. You can learn a lot from the coworkers and really boost your knowledge of software dev.

Cons

Work sometimes can get a bit stale meaning that you are doing the same thing over and over again. Also, crunch time means extra hours after work and during weekends, but i mean that happens to pretty much all software companies so can't really complain

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great Management!

    Trying to be a corporation, but not one. Very disorganised

    I have been working at SOTI full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Dynamic environment
    - wide breadth of experience
    - Benefits package

    Cons

    - No formal training for the role
    - No defined roles or responsibilities
    - No organisation within the company or teams
    - Knowledge is rarely shared and moves at a high speed rate. Too fast for anyone that has just come into the company
    - Very long hours for not equal pay
    - Extremely hard to get an increase in pay
    - All decisions are made by the CEO and so takes a long time for any sort of improvement in the company to be made.

    I worked at SOTI

    Pros

    Agree with the previous post about the owner-CEO.
    Bright people join SOTI periodically attracted by the CEO personality.

    Cons

    Majority of cons are described in the previous post quite well.
    It appears that the senior management has accepted the fact that people massively leave SOTI for some *unexplainable* reasons and just tries to squeeze from them while they are still there.
    There is no organized knowledge exchange between developers, neither technical training. In general, communication within teams is poor. Duplicated code is often written because developers avoid communicating to each other and to the managers because they are afraid to be punished for mistakes. The management doesn't care or doesn't know how to do thing differently.
    Quite a bit of disrespect. As an example, stand-up meetings in the SOTI trying-to-adopt Scrum interpretation are when the manager is sitting and everybody else is standing for whatever long the meeting takes...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Align the managent style with the industry standards. Bring 'fresh blood' from outside to the management.
