    I have been working at Equator Business Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of very smart people

    Cons

    You'll be thrown in the deep end right away and nobody will care if you can swim. They seem to be gradually offshoring all jobs. Benefits are average. 401k is below average.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a reason to believe that you're not plotting to move their job offshore.

    Pros

    Chris Saitta no longer works here

    Cons

    Still a lot of corrupt Sr. management. Unfair hiring and firing. Still the friends and family are the ruling.

    Advice to Management

    After years of hiring and firing, Chris Saitta got his. Employees have been complaining for years that he had no clue what he was doing. Blamed others for his own incompetence. Karma is something to fear!

    I worked at Equator Business Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to achieve amazing things quickly and to be apart of a company that is not talking about what it wants do but is actually doing it. The employees below the executive suite are all amazing people that care deeply about the work they are performing. The executives are also good people but they are on a mission and are unapologetic in the pursuit of that mission.

    Cons

    This depends on your mindset. If expect to work 9-5 and have a company hold your hand then this is not the right place for you. You will work hard... you will work long hours... you will sacrifice personal time. Benefits could use some beefing up.

    Advice to Management

    Step back sometimes from the tunnel vision and give back to those that are enabling your success.

    The best technical teams who will always help each other. Friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    False promises Lack of ethics & Full of politics. You are out of game after you finish your task (doesn't matter if your are full-time or contractor)

    Do not lose the best resources with improper planning.
