    I worked at Emptoris

    Pros

    Each group at Emptoris is large enough to take on compelling projects with major clients but small enough to retain a cooperative team feeling.

    Cons

    Because each team is tight-knit, there is often tension when intra team cooperation is required. This may require additional patience but is no more than is probably experienced at other companies of the same size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emptoris has great employees. More of an investment should be made in advancing their capabilities through formal education and training.

    Cons

    recent acquisition from IBM has required some adjustments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PS model needs to be adjusted to fit needs of our customer. Career path is always challenging and needs to be worked on for each employee. Roadmap in the next few years will be key.

    Good company, good people, but management vision lacking

    I have been working at Emptoris

    Pros

    Really nice coworkers and colleagues. Exciting space. Smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Little to no career growth or compensation improvement. Management vision is not clear - they certainly articulate one thing, but they don't quite follow through on it. And they have made some poor decisions thus limiting further growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't keep looking at things from the same prism. Change it up. Invest. Think visionary, and then follow up on it.

    Some times you may find yourself involved in the team politics. At times it is difficult to convey your ideas to the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit talent most appropriate to the requirement. Continue with the HR policies. Plan to retain good talent by promising a good future and better career development opportunities.
