A good Company to work for

Consultant (Current Employee)
Roma (Italy)

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

ProsThere's a continuous attention to innovate using new technologies. Employees are continuously encouraged to attend courses to get certification. Very good relationships between colleagues and the management people.

ConsCompensation and Benefits could be better. Career path too slow also for the "top performer". Too many sub-companies, sometimes very small sub-companies (it is a problem for the internal job rotation, for the efficient resource allocation, for the high number of Partners...).

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

Good opportunity for newly graduates, not so much for career

Junior Consultant (Current Employee)
Milan (Italy)

I have been working at Reply full-time for less than a year

ProsA nice and friendly (mostly young) work environment, good base income for a first job experience (even though they require a minimum graduation vote of 102)

ConsI don't see many careers opportunity, it's difficult to sensibly raise your wage even after several years of experience and most of the responsibility positions are more related to management rather than pure computer science

Turin (Italy)

simply dishonest

Consultant (Former Employee)
Milano (Italy)

I worked at Reply full-time for more than a year

ProsNice Christmas party, after all

ConsPromises for everybody, chances to grow for really a few, chosen absolutely not based on skills.
Very unclear how people progress in career: as a coincidence, it happens to people coming from the same city or school as the company founder.

They lure you with promising super-high-tech projects, but after you accept the offer you get "parked" in some junk project in some high-paying customer.

Although they are demanding (as they only hire graduates with high grades) their salaries are not really high.

Micromanagement is the rule: guys mysteriously turned manager after very little experience behaving arrogantly and treating you pretty unprofessionally.

The company requires a devotion similar to a religious sect, if you don't participate in all their frequent extra-working activities they look at you like a betrayer.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to be honest with candidates about the projects they'll be working on.
Try to better screen people you give responsibilities to (i.e. "Senior consultants") even if I think you intentionally build your company on micromanagement.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
