Current Employee - Account Director

I have been working at Upstream

Pros

- Most people are friendly and professional
- Atmosphere is generally good, unless an executive just crapped on you or your team
- Potential for professional growth
- Potential for international exposure

Cons

- Some senior people are extremely difficult to work with
- If you're not based in HQ (Athens, Greece), do not expect adequate support
- If you're not a management lackey, you're not going to last long

Advice to Management

It's time to take a long hard look at some of the executives and understand that not everyone can the move from start-up to company - delivering does not supersede people skills at all time, and the bottom line is not solely cash-based in a proper organisation!

    Upstream listens. We run employee surveys (good tool by the way) and act.

    Work pressure and timelines to deliver a bit strict

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more, people will appreciate it

    Pros

    Great working environment / conditions. Good salary. Exceptional infrastructure. Highly educated colleagues.

    Cons

    Extremely disorganized. People sometimes don't know what they're working on. Too many projects per person. There is no product ownership.

    This is basically a marketing company thus software engineering is not the primary department. It's hard to evolve/develop your career as S/E in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up trying to organize the company.
    Assign specific people to each project / make them owners/accountable of each piece of software.
    Use formal methods for requirements analysis / design.
