    Current Employee - Software Analyst in Lisbon (Portugal)

    I have been working at Prime IT full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - They have a lot of clients therefore a lot of job opportunities in diferent locations/technology/experience.
    - They sponsor a lot of events which provide not only fun but where you can meet people and share experiences.
    - Depending of your experience the salary can be quite good.

    Cons

    - Besides the events you have zero feedback on what´s going on in your company, it seems you are forgotten in your client (like most outsourcing companies).
    - The annual review is a joke because your manager will only tell you what the client told him and any salary review was already discussed without you (tipically low values)
    - They only care about making money so they avoid making significant salary reviews. That only happens when you say you want to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The business model in the company (profit like crazy) induces that the consultants don't feel appreciated. They are lied to when ask for a salary increase (excuses not to) but they see co-workers getting the money when they threaten to leave.

    Pros

    Active communication, good environment, prompt payment

    Cons

    Distance to colleagues and management, null input from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work closer with the new team members, assign a senior member to acclimate new members in the client's organizations, check and collect regular feedback on the first months.

    Has the biggest and best Portuguese companies as clients.
    No shortage of work.
    One of the more well paying consulting companies in Lisbon.
    Great opportunities to grow professionally.
    Chance to participate in International projects.

    There could be more rewards (other than money) in order to keep the employees motivated and eager to work.
    Some clients will "suck" your will to live (hehe, almost).

    Pros

    If you are starting your career maybe it's a company that offers you the first step to enter the market, otherwise, you should look for better companies to work.

    Cons

    Management is sick, they hire beautifull girls to make you smile, that's all about smilling.

    After some time, they don't remember you exist.

    Avaliations are a waste of time, they keep blinding you until the point you just think to quit them, in fact that's quite depressive and sick.

    Managers are not managers are simply commercials trying to get the more and more contracts.

    Brief they don't simply care about you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should care more about people, there's no management they simply forget you after 3 months on the client. They don't even care if you leave.
