    Pros

    Nothing is good for these people

    Cons

    They call candidates, interview then 5-6 times, hold them and ultimately say NO. They just do time pass and the Indian JR. PM working for them are horrible....Just wastage of time and money!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't waste time of people who need job..if you don't like someone reject them in 1st/2nd round..don't call them 5-6 times and at the end say NO..Peers can never decide a candidate....they why management is sitting?

    I worked at SciVantage as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great location in Jersey city!

    Cons

    Limited room for advancement. A portion of the development team is in China and Russia very hard to deal with mis-aligned offshore team. Product resources are also in various locations stateside, again very challenging to work environment. Pay scale is lower than more mature firms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in training and spending time with your resources!

    I have been working at SciVantage full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Scivantage has changed drastically in the last year:

    - Yearly reviews for all employees (reviews linked to manager's review)
    - An emphasis on Design, testing, performance
    - Innovative market changing products to work on
    - New capable CIO
    - Tuition reimbursement and other programs that can help employees achieve their own personal goals
    - Game room with pool and table tennis doesn't hurt
    - An awareness of the need for a work/life balance from managers

    Cons

    - Average pay on a market scale
    - If you are a Project Manager you may work late hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you're doing with the new vision, mission and goal.

    I have been working at SciVantage full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great employees, big hearts and great minds. Many a times, people will go above and beyond to help fellow workers. Helping out when needed most. Great team support culture. Really makes one work harder for their follow worker

    A lot of work to keep the day from being boring. The work can be challenging. Decent growth potential but not easy to come by

    The CEO is a great and pationate person, his vision is of providing the best service for the customer

    Cons

    Lack of vision and focus by management. Management is less concerned about company direction and tragectory and more involved with personal positions and influence

    Conflicting visions between CEO and management, results in splintered and negative attitudes.

    There have been several rounds of reorganizations. This breeds uncertanity

    A lot of repetative work, putting out fires, leaving very little time for personal life

    I worked at SciVantage

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Extremely mis-managed. Chaotic business/project plan. very bad communication between high/low level. treating people badly. Narrow profit model in an area where most clients are looking for lowering their cost. nothing to learn but basic ideas in accounting and taxation. not a financial company but an accounting firm.

    Bleak prospect in going public, looks like this company had given up IPO plan and would stay down for at least another 5-10 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your business model, do something that makes money, do something that is not nut and bolt, not boiler-plating. in order to do that: Hire some talented people
