A place to gain experience as a junior developer, never a place to stay

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Guadalajara, Jalisco (Mexico)

I have been working at Softtek full-time for more than a year

ProsInterviews are fairly easy and they have lots of opportunities for recent graduates

ConsNo law benefits, They lie about the way your salary is calculated, A raise will not have any impact on any of your benefits, They do quite literal brain-washing sessions on a regular basis, Do not accept critique and blame everyone else but themselves when they fail. As an outsorcing agency, it is in the top 5 worst in Guadalajara, and i suppose in Mexico.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart paying full law benefits to your associates, do not lie about career development opportunities and compensation, support employees with courses with RELEVANT topics, avoid the brain-washing events

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