    Pros

    Some individually competent and thoughtful people. If you're considering Ramp, take care to notice the difference in reviews between the Bellevue/Redmond office and the offshore India offices.

    Cons

    A critical review of a company is meant to help you make a more informed decision and hopefully not make the same mistake as the person that’s already been there. I've been there.

    The negative environment and constant acceptance of mediocrity will wear on you and wear you down. You can try hard, and even come in thinking you can make a difference...but you'll soon realize that upper management barely has a handle on their own company. They articulate no company vision at all and seem more than happy with the bottom of the barrel projects, often taking on free work in the hopes it will lead to paid work later...it won't, it doesn't.

    There are also issues with integrity and the way some people are treated. Almost everyone that's there would rather be someplace else. Employees are always talking about leaving, about the bad management and weak future...that all creates complacency and a general "who cares" attitude. As I mentioned earlier, it will wear you down.

    Ramp is part of a larger company that's based offshore in India. The CEO, who runs all three companies, is pretty much nonexistent at Ramp. You could go months without even seeing him in the office.

    If you're straight out of school with no prior job experience you might find some value here...maybe...but I would encourage even you to look elsewhere first.

    Trust me when I say this...Just Say No...move on to something else and you'll be much happier in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Stop fooling yourselves. Without any real leadership or any company vision or direction, this will always be a company barely hanging on and scrounging for any clients they can get.

    Pros

    Ramp had gone thru a very large downsizing before I joined, but the team that was left was very strong and really got that they were in rebuilding mode. Very realistic in the way they approached running lean and mean, and everyone pitched in together and worked well together.

    That is, until the new CEO came in, and the wheels fell completely off almost over night.

    Cons

    Since they were small, everyone had to wear multiple hats and that became difficult to do well all the time. This was before new management.

    Once new management came in, the game was changed forever. Dishonesty and mistrust ruled the day, and new management treated all employees - new and old - with disdain and a total lack of respect.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to new management is to give it up. They are dishonest to the core.

    Pros

    They process green card in a relative short time span.

    Cons

    They are a small company with not too many projects, their recruiters are useless when it's time for you to find a new project which doesn't surprise me since they don't speak English very well. Benefits are also really bad, health insurance premiums are very high if you have a family.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the skills of your recruiters and get more projects.

    Pros

    Fair choice if you have an ongoing client opportunity and switching to this employer for a better salary.

    Cons

    Very lethargic in searching opportunity for consultants in case your current gets expired.
    Very poor communication and respect from Senior management.
    Very few direct clients which is a high risk.

    Pros

    You can work autonomously to some extent; the art director is a great ally

    Cons

    CEO acts like he's doing employees a favor by keeping them employed. Meanwhile:
    - salaries are poor
    - insurance is the worst
    - infrastructure is crumbling (email, phone, office)
    - CEO tries not to reimburse employees for expenses
    - pay and vacation time get "lost" regularly
    - CEO's family and friends get the management jobs (would be OK if they were competent)

    Advice to Management

    Read up on the top American companies and how they attract and retain the best employees. Your employees are your #1 resource, and you're squandering them.

    Pros

    If they are desperate for you, they will throw everything to retain you. But don't ever trust them in paying your bonuses or future promises.

    Cons

    New management sucks. No work culture.
    Be cautious with what you sign as they can just put you in trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your words and be honest.

    Pros

    Pros:
    * Exposure to lots of projects, clients

    Cons

    Cons:
    * No time for competitive research, planning
    * Importance placed on bill-ability rather than career growth
    * Management pretty much clueless, kept is in the total dark
    * Dishonest management
    * Advertise there are 70 employees, there are more like 4

    Advice to Management

    Employees can take bad news. Better to keep your employees informed than to lie to them. It's a small town - not a good idea to burn bridges in this industry.
