    Avoid going onsite, it's a dead-end job, in a dead-end company.

    I have been working at ITWorx

    Pros

    ITWorx has several offices; this review is more concerned with the US office, based in Connecticut, USA.

    If you are going to work offshore, developing software in Cairo, you're going to work at one of the best software houses in Egypt. Not perfect, but very decent people, with senior management who are doing their best to steer the company for growth, and at the same time, grow their employees.

    They don't pay top-tier salaries anymore, but people are compensated in non-monetary ways when extra effort is put in.

    If you plan on working onsite, in the US office, the only 'Pro' worth mentioning is that everyone is treated in the same way (i.e the cons below apply to all resources working in the US office).
    For more details, read below.

    Cons

    This section is aimed at stating the shortcomings of the US office, based in Connecticut, USA:
    - No advancement opportunities (no career growth)
    - Very low pay grade (well below market average)
    - Short-sighted senior management, only looking for a quick buck (even from its own employees)
    - There's no organization hierarchy, no plan & no policies (contrary to what management will try to convince you). It's up to you to get what you can, when you still can.
    - Senior management think they're smarter than all employees (a theory that keeps back-firing every single time, and they still haven't learned the lesson)
    - The only company in the market asking its employees for a 4-week leave notice, when the market-standard is 2 weeks, sometimes less.

    The cons stated above have been prevailing for the past 8+ years. Senior management will gladly hold town-hall meetings and round tables to convince employees that issues are being / will be addressed. Nothing happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    US office management keeps shooting themselves in the foot every single time. Their methods have backfired every single time and they still haven't learned the lesson.

    It's sad to see incompetent managers wasting their time trying to out-smart bright, enthusiastic employees.

    There's so much potential being wasted.

    Nice environment but unstable company with little chance of growth especially in nontechnical track

    Pros

    Friendly environment
    Flexible working hours

    Cons

    Unstable company, there is a wave of layoffs every couple of years due to poor planning. Layoffs aren't done properly too where the employees with weak managers are the first to go, regardless of their performance or how old they r in the company.
    Nontechnical depts have no luck in promotions and growth , and if promotions happen it is usually due to ur manager being strong or on good terms with HR. Not to mention the salaries are below the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve HR dept, company should be market driven not product driven. And pls listen to ur employees.

    Pros

    The Work environment is very good with friendly and helpful friends. The salaries is not bad. If you have to work extra days (weekends or holidays) it will be compensated for you.

    Cons

    I can say salary is not the best but good. Annual raises is not satisfying. And if your chance is to work in a support team, you will learn more skills, but i don't recommend that for you especially if you want to be robust in specific technology and benefit from CMMI process.

    I have been working at ITWorx as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly employees.
    Flexible working hours.
    Work-life balance.
    Good company to play ping pong with.

    Cons

    Low Salaries compared to other companies.
    Career path for some departments. Ex: To be technical architect , You should first pass technical lead L1 then L2 then technical architect although in the past being technical architect after Senior Software Engineer direct.
    Not easy to promote even if you are hard worker and deserve that. And in the other side it is easy to promote if you have a good relation with your manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of people work for money not for nice environment.
    Nice environment can keep smart employee for max 2 years then he will search about better opportunities.
    Can we measure ITWorx valuable technical assets now compare with 2010 for example ? Is it better ?
