    Pros

    Great growth opportunities if you're a technical expert looking to grow your skills.

    Cons

    Keste is a smaller company so you have to continue to promote the company 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to promote your people as your #1 asset.

    Pros

    Keste has an amazing culture, and is a great place to come every day - you're intellectually challenged and pushed to achieve multi-faceted growth!

    Cons

    Most decisions require executive-level sign-off, so there are some delays - but that's only because the owners are passionate about making the right decisions that affect the growth of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep looking at long term objectives and keep growing the company like you're doing!

    I have been working at Keste full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working at Keste has allowed me the opportunity to grow and develop in ways that I would have never expected. The leadership here at Keste is always willing to listen to you and provide a solution when you may need one. It is a very results oriented organization that looks for people who want to work hard, which is half the fun! I've never met a leadership team that cares to give back to their employees as much as Keste's leaders do! Here at Keste I am excited to come to work and that makes me happy!

    Cons

    Leadership looks for people who want to work hard, if you are not a hard worker then this wouldn't be a good environment for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Keste full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Using all the latest software.
    Projects are complex and challenging just the way I like them.
    A lot of flexibility in being staffed on projects.
    Very competitive salaries

    Cons

    Since it is a consulting firm, almost all projects require some amount of travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep bringing in the big challenging projects including non-Oracle technologies!

    I have been working at Keste full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture at Keste is great and almost all employees get along great. Many people go for lunch together and even live together and/or hang out in the evenings. Hard work is commended with promotions and pay raises which has happened twice in the past 2.5 years for me.

    Cons

    It is a consulting company and therefore there will be travel involved. However, we try to make good decisions by placing resources in traveling roles when that is desired and try to keep people at home when preferred.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it as lean as possible. Building up too many 'non-billable' employees will only apply more pressure to 'billable' employees to keep very busy.

    Cons

    Let's make sure we embrace our employees outside of delivery and celebrate their successes as much as we do for our "wins" in delivery.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a great job navigating the business and communicating with the employees. They are true champions of the Keste employees - committed to work/life balance; offering progressive careers with 4 career tracks; dedicated to training & development; competitive compensation & benefits; built a state-of-the-art facility; and committed to hiring & growing with a purpose to name a few of the strengths. Thank you for being committed & leading with integrity and passion!

    I have been working at Keste full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The adaptable nature of the company results in a continuously challenging environment that leaves little room for hum-drum repetition and monotony. I am always having to discover new skills and improve myself in order to face new challenges. My personal resume grows as Keste grows its portfolio of skills.

    Cons

    An agile working environment doesn't leave much room for cooling down or for status quo lifestyle. So, you have to be highly motivated to succeed within the company. If you seek a position based on routine, you may want to consider working somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although someone isn't working directly for an external client, his/her internal efforts are critical to the success of the business as a whole outside of that project. Non-project work has value and should be more recognized even when it isn't tied directly to a revenue stream.
