Not a good place for career growth

Software Development Engineer In Test (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Pactera full-time for more than 5 years

Proscouldn't think of any pros worth mentioning

ConsI don't think they have any process for career growth of employees, you will end up with same designation/title till you are in the company. I think this is mainly because there is no performance review process in the company.
If you think you deserve a salary hike then you have to fight for it with the HR and Account managers and management.
Immigration team is the worst and careless.

Advice to Senior ManagementAccount Managers should be trained to have better interaction with employees placed at client locations. Please introduce a performance review process just like any other company in the IT WORLD.

Pleasant contracting experience

Network Engineer (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

I have been working at Pactera as a contractor for more than a year

ProsLow overhead, while on contract at another company they essentially leave you do your duties and don't try to intervene.
Competitive Pay, I was offered a much higher pay rate as a contractor with Pactera than a couple other companies that were also recommended to me

ConsThey were in between moving building on the Microsoft campus when I started, so navigating and finding the correct people while getting started proved difficult
They are currently finishing a merger of companies, and while they seem to have handled it well, there also seems to be some confusion and empty holes in the patchwork of the company, which I'm sure they'll fix with time

Advice to Senior ManagementFinish out the merger smoothly, and continue to give vendors competitive wages in order to take more of the market.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Integrity of the senior managements, process, workflow, HR, sales, onsite and offshore teams.

I worked at Pactera as a contractor for more than 5 years

ProsHeterogeneous of senior managers was dominated by Singaporean. process, workflow, HR, sales, onsite and offshore teams were created as issue goes.

ConsVery politicise corporate environment was dominated by Singaporean. process, workflow, HR, sales, onsite and offshore teams was not properly defined.

Advice to Senior ManagementTear down red tapes and towards better transparency to everyone.
