I worked at SoftServe

Pros

Opportunities are ample within projects, and responsibility and accountability are delegated, too. Lots of scrum opportunities. Some great new products and technologies.

Cons

Not decentralized enough for growth. Some built-in barriers, and entrenched thinking, stymies chances for newcomers - both internal and external.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Crossing the chasm - Good to Great. Get the right folks and Level 5 leadership.

    SoftServe was place where I met good colleagues but bureaucracy and bad management spoiled everything

    I worked at SoftServe

    Pros

    You are student or post-graduate and seeking for first job where you can get at least some experience and agree to get low salary and often boring job - you are always welcome.
    But don't forget to change company after 1-1.5 year to get professional growth.

    Cons

    Strong bureaucracy make your professional and especially financial growth very limited. Don't expect to get something more during few first years on SoftServe than you get in job proposal...
    Be prepared to participate in support projects with old technologies and a lot of low-quality code and be sold to customer as senior developer when you are only advanced junior or middle developer.
    SoftServe external rates mostly are low so probably on most projects you will be underpaid.

    I have been working at SoftServe

    Pros

    Some are really brilliant team members
    Interesting projects with challenging tasks
    Support on initiative improvements
    Mature processes established in a company

    Cons

    Underpaid
    Significantly lower rate during paid vacation
    No benefits
    Last time too many juniors not loaded with real work
    Regional development centers have poor overall company support
    Shifted work hours (US clients mostly), not good for one having family and kids

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-think about compensation and bonuses - they are negligible thus no will to do extra work
    Make up some better motivation for veteran employees
