    Pros

    Smart people leveraging technology to benefit customers. Great place to go deep into customer needs and to significantly impact people. Functional roles are important - however initiative specific teams are frequently created which can be fun as well as stretching your knowledge base. Company values ability to deliver results while providing reasonable flexibility.

    Cons

    Not a great place to work if you prefer sticking with what you already know - environment forces you to stretch to learn and to change. Additionally you need to be comfortable with the dynamic team concept - where you need to be able to join a team and respond to leaders beyond your direct supervisor.

    Pros

    Co-workers are honest, hard-working and basically good, fun people. I like the integrity of the company on a whole.

    Cons

    Sometimes communication is lacking - seems to be a consent challenge no matter where I've worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To consider performance evaluations/raises to let employees know how they are doing, if they are meeting expectations.

    Thanks for recommending Tensoft, and for pointing out the company's integrity. This is one of those values that you may not fully appreciate until you've worked for a company that doesn't have it!

    I have been working at Tensoft full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have a lot of respect for senior management here - they're involved with staff, but don't micro-manage (as long as you're doing your job). The work is challenging, and the team environment is supportive and stimulating. No politics and lots of autonomy for those who are self-directed.

    Cons

    Small company, so the salary and benefits package may be on the mid to low side of the range for this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    You will enjoy working with a group of great and smart people. This place provides a nice work environment. You will learn a lot from interacting with your team and Tensoft's customers.

    Often times you may fact challenges as this is not avoidable in every job. But you will gain satisfication after resolving these issues.

    Pros

    There are good people to work with here. It is small, but business decisions seem to make sense and they seem to be customer focused and because of that adding customers at a reasonable rate.

    Cons

    There can be a steep learning curve for clients as well as employees. It is a good place for self motivated people. Because it is small, an employee has to be proactive to learn things.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to wear different hats, try out something new, and be creative. Smart co-workers, and no big egos or borderline personalities.

    Cons

    Quiet office might not be the best place for someone's who's strongly extroverted. For consultants, hours can be unpredictable at times - need to manage time well and take personal responsibility for work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More frequent all-hands meetings, and bring in the gourmet food trucks more often.
