    Dynamic growing business with a lot of potential

    I have been working at PHT Corporation full-time

    Pros

    - exciting business space and industry - a lot of change and growth potential
    - small company feel, with a big impact on the space
    - generally positive work environment
    - management genuinely concerned with creating a good culture (fun holiday parties, birthday lunches with the CEO)
    - positive work-life balance (though varies by your dept/mgr)
    - work has a meaningful impact - helps bring new therapies to patients
    - very generous time off package (4 weeks + holiday shut down)
     - free parking and close to T

    Cons

    - some growing pains, as business increases and company tries to mature
    - serves a very conservative, risk-averse space that is highly-regulated - requires some getting used to
    - project-oriented environment where client deliverables can trump all else - requires a lot of flexibility
    - communication can still improve - some leaders are great at cascading down and across, while some struggle to tear down their silos
    - basic health and welfare benefits - not truly a con, but can be improved (and there seems to be an openness to review over time)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lot of energy around change and evolution of the business, which is undeniably needed to match pace with the growth. However, too much change at once can also be disruptive - employees can only absorb so much at once, without a serious blip in quality, and in our business quality is everything!

    Pros

    PHT hasp very bright, intelligent, committed and motivated employees, Company cares about its employees as shown by the positive responses to the recent employee engagement survey. New products are well received by clients and client satisfaction is at an all time high. Kudo's to the Services Delivery Teams for excellent service to our customers. Company sales are at all time high driving new hiring and growth. Engineering team is best in the industry developing leading edge products with high quality. Recent company events like the Christmas party and the Summer outing were great for employees and their families.

    Cons

    Company has always put its customers first and sometimes that means putting in extra time to resolve issues. Not really a con in the long run as that drives happy customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The recent summer hours and extended time off during Christmas is much appreciated. We need more conference rooms, but it looks like the expansion into the rest of the third floor will resolve that issue.

    Pros

    Free parking. Interesting industry. Nice people in mid and lower levels

    Cons

    Ridiculously low pay and benefits considering 55 hour work week (average).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay salaries that are competitive with fast-growing tech companies. Promote more often than annually. Retire the long-term senior management who continue to keep their jobs and salaries despite major mistakes

    Pros

    I love working for this company. Although admittedly there is some senior management who have been with the company for a very long time, there is a good balance of consistency/history and new developments with some of the organizational changes that have happened in the past year. A lot of positive changes have occurred and it seems like management is listening closely to employee concerns and taking many active steps towards improving company culture. I believe in what we do, we have a lot of high caliber people and everyone I work with is very dedicated to the company's and our customers' success.

    Cons

    I hear about conflicts remaining between some groups, but I don't have to deal with it directly. It's a challenge when some people have been around for a long time and are resistant to change or are stuck in a "we've always done it this way" mode, but I think that's the case anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The recent initiatives and updates to benefits have been great, please keep it up!

    I worked at PHT Corporation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing good to say about this company.

    Cons

    1) Pay was 10 K USD per anum lesser than the market standard.
    2) Work load is increased to best performing highly efficient and hard working employees
    3) We have other employees sleeping and doing nothing and taking vacations and getting huge rises in salary every year, as they have good rapport with their managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please kindly reward and recognize the best performing employees.

    I have been working at PHT Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Much of the bad management has been let go and replaced with seasoned, capable individuals. Friendly, earnest, and supportive culture. Business and products have been improving steadily. General staff is incredibly dedicated and capable. Promotions & changes are very achievable.

    Cons

    Existing technology is dated (though functional). Services teams are generally overworked. Some politics still remain resulting in duplicated or counter productive work. Two separate engineering teams that don't respect each other. Nature of the industry (highly regulated) makes for a slow laborious development process. Raises haven't kept pace with inflation. Sullivan Square.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are still a couple divisive managers and individuals; they should be asked to leave. HR needs a refresh as the head has proven to be untrustworthy around privacy and respect. Somehow align or combine the two engineering departments. matching 401(k). IT (dept & infrastructure) needs to be more effective.
