    I have been working at Globant full-time

    Pros

    They were hiring when I was looking

    Cons

    Salaries don't track cost-of-living increases.
    More interested in hiring warm bodies than in fitting talent to requirement.
    They force-feed you a culture that has nothing to do with what actually happens inside the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people. You're getting rich because they're working hard.

    I would suggest they get closer to their staff.

    Pros

    great professionals, good team work, allows you to get skills in business as management as if you will be managing your own company

    Cons

    if you need a career plan you may be frustrated frequently since you better need to develop your own plan and get success

    The Sales Management team definitely are not for the customer or the employees--all they care about is revenue

    Pros

    The Development and the Delivery team who work at Globant are really smart and intelligent people

    Cons

    the management team and their practices are really unethical. that's all I need to say. They constantly put the sales guy under pressure to sale, and provide unrealistic quota; the development team are way over worked and under paid; they just stick around due to their visa status, and having the opportunity to leave Argentina.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are the best assets in a company; learn how to treat your staff and increase employee retention.

    Pros

    Let you work form home

    Cons

    Salaries are very low. Benefits are pathetic. They do not have a clue how to recruit. They just bring you to the company to fill a hot spot then they laid you off. Managers do not know how to run a company in the USA They do not have a clue how to work with american (this is why the have more employees with VIsa). They do not have integrity!

    I worked at Globant

    Pros

    Globant is a company with talented engineers. Although not super easy, the engineer can change teams and pursue different career paths.

    Cons

    Management still makes big decisions without involving the engineering teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on their talent.
