    I have been working at Steelwedge Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, get to work with new clients as old ones leave. Can combine personal oversees trips with business trips and save a lot. Get to work with new set of leaders every year, so you can grow a good network of business leaders.

    Cons

    Working with offshore team is a challenge as they literally spend about four hours per day in office working due to the challenges with their commuting / transport system. Consequently have to work very late hours in US time. We only see announcements of customers signing up for our product but rarely anyone endorsing that they are happy with us. Even the website shows only sign-ons but no strong testimonials of strong and reputed customers. No local leadership to manage the offshore teams in non-services teams. Very high levels of inefficiencies.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at Steelwedge Software (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good domain to be in. Good work culture, and flexible.

    Cons

    Very few sensible executives and managers. Middle level managers in Offshore are the real downers. Absolutely NO perks. Poor pay scale. Very unorganized services and support team. Company runs on a reactive approach than proactive approach. Very old technologies, and huge effort goes into seeing a stabilized system. Been almost 15 years, yet in the 20-30million revenue mark. Long way to go.

    Pros

    The company is great, the product is great, and the people are just AWESOME!! Steelwedge empowers people to perform: If you have the right attitude, Steelwedge gives you the opportunity to rise to the occasion and prove your worth. It has a very dynamic, fast-paced and collaborative work environment. Tons of incredibly hard-working and smart people to learn from, lots of open idea exchange. Steelwedge incorporates ways to stay healthy and productive in a corporate environment. Few examples: Work-out Wednesdays (which includes Yoga classes), re-imburses gym membership, Fitbit challenges among colleagues, inter-company 'Mix Softball' tournament, etc. What I really love about this place is the open environment, which allows you to be who you are. While some might find it to be "additional work"; I find it refreshing that Steelwedge provides me the opportunity to wear multiple hats and gives me the flexibility to learn and grow in other professional areas.

    Cons

    - Typical growing pains: for ex. internal processes/procedures - Communication - We're growing out of our office space - which is actually a good thing! - Product strategy is still evolving, although that could be seen just as much as an opportunity. - The global model makes it a bit difficult to have a perfect work-life balance. That said, who esp. in Silicon Valley doesn't stay up for late pm calls and/or early am calls (internal or customer) + work hours are flexible .. no one's looking at the watch to check when one gets in or out of the office!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing .. I have a lot of respect and admiration for all that I've had the opportunity to work with. The decisions you've been making are definitely taking us in the right direction!! - Continue with the "Open door policy". It's very comforting for employees to know you're open to hearing our thoughts and ideas, and the occasional grievances - Continue with the thought leadership, which is clearly driving us to the path of becoming a leader in this niche market - Continue identifying individuals that excel in the cross-functional areas and promote organic growth

    Pros

    Steelwedge is an awesome company that provides great flexibility, opportunities for collaboration, benefits, and overall work experience for employees. There is a great open concept for employees to collaborate across departments and sense of transparency as the company continues to grow. Steelwedge always advocates a wonderful work-life balance and continues to incorporate ways to stay healthy and productive in a corporate environment.

    Cons

    As a company growing at a fast rate, roles and projects shift and change frequently - you must be agile and accountable with your work to avoid feeling overwhelmed. Communication is imperative across multiple offices globally in order for all teams and departments to stay in sync.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - Steelwedge is a wonderful place to work and has a bright future ahead. Being a part of a fast-paced company and having a voice that's heard means a lot. More good things are coming!

    Pros

    Fair compensation and medical benefits. Good environment for independent self-starters who do not require a lot of support or guidance. Good people trying to grow the company and very committed, especially under the senior executive level.

    Cons

    Chaotic environment with no clear strategy. Excessive management turnover. Product issues. Many employees feel unsupported.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a vision for the company and focus on improving the product and customer satisfaction. Communicate and empower more than just a few senior executives.
