    Pros

    I am looking hard to find one.

    Cons

    So many that I don't even have enough space here.

    Advice to Management

    You all should leave your posts. There is no sense in having you controlling this company. You keep saying that this company is going to be public and I hope when that became true you are all gone. Learn how to do business, see out there and follow the best companies. You don't need to be big to be good.


  3. Great Place to Work

    I worked at Softtek

    Pros

    On the job you learn a lot and its a great way to start your career if you have just graduated from college. This would be your stepping stone to begin.
    Another thing I liked is that you can get certifications on different tools and you will be refunded back if you pass.

    Cons

    There are gaps in communication. Sometimes it feels like you are just another number. I would be happy if more recognition to the employees would be made such as bonuses and more flexible on approving vacation days.

    Advice to Management

    I would advice Management to be more in contact with their workers and have frequent one on one conversations to check how they are feeling and what can be improved.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    You NEVER will get a raise- so you better sign on at something you don't mind getting for years. Very unorganized as a company and processes always are changing.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees and offer more raises for their extra effort!!! Due "real" performance evaluations and work on structure and organizational errors and problems.

    Pros

    They work with multiple technologies including Microsoft, SAP and Oracle. They have clients on many different business industries.

    Cons

    They are focused on reducing costs so the offshore resources are not employees but associates, many "experts" are just people with basic knowledge of the technologies. Many managers have no experience so their decisions constantly add stress to the team members and project leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Create grow opportunities for experienced resources and improve training for offshore resources

    Pros

    - Excellent working atmosphere
    - Great learning opportunity
    - Depending on the project, ability to work for top companies as an outsourced resource

    Cons

    - Limited by project growth
    - As any outsourcing company, very focused on cost reduction, to a point of forcing rotation

    Advice to Management

    I suggest the top management to closely follow the middle management cost reduction policies, to assure that small savings are not being obtained at a cost on quality, or valuable employees moving elsewhere

    Pros

    You learn a lot there.

    Cons

    Being a contractor, you need to stick to outdated policies implemented by the clients.
    The terms of your work situation are not discussed with you, you have no saying on hours you'll like to work or even if you prefer to work from home, mostly because they will try to comply with every whim the client wants as long they keep a project.
    They will charge the client a lot for you and only pay you a very little percentage of that.

    Advice to Management

    Look out more for your employees, while it is understandable that you don't want to loose business with your major client, you certainly don't want to loose your employees every time they get a better offer.

    Partial Benefits (PTOs, Health Insurance, 401(k) No match, Basic Dental & Vision coverage)

    They don't provide Health Insurance for your family
    There is no match for 401(k)
    The performance review is not tied to a promotion or salary increase even if your performance was outstanding
    If your project ends you will be at the bench and if they don't find a new project soon, you might be be laid off.
