    Growing Company with much to Offer

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsValtech is just getting its roots in the US and is growing quickly. With that there is alot of opportunity to lay some groundwork in your career if that is something you are looking to get. Awesome big name brands as clients. Fantastic compensation and very attentive HR. Also a hip and modern work facility in Meatpacking.

    ConsAll that comes with working for a "start-up" type company. Lots of room to improve on structure, however you get what you make out of it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Clueless

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsWork-life balance was decent, but that's a stretch. The benefits are horrible and the HR Leader hates people, odd, and does nothing to advocate for decent benefits which creates stress in life balance.

    ConsFar too many to mention

    Advice to Senior ManagementWrite a plan, even notes on an etch-a-sketch would be better than what you have today. No sales plan, no resource plan. So many smart people trained, certified and then released. Why spend thousands of dollars to train and certify Consultants only to release them. And, stop being so completely blatant about nepotism and spending corporate dollars as if the money is your own personal "piggy bank".

    Agency grind house

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsSome talented people and a few big client projects, but most of the good employees are leaving or actively looking for better opportunities and the projects are always severely understaffed.

    ConsMost employees here are less than a year with the company and on contract, high turnover. No 401K match, limited yet still expensive benefits for full-time employees (which do not kick in for 30-45 days depending on when you start and are forced to pay COBRA), poor vacation and holidays, no promotions or annual reviews, and an almost non-existent HR.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou know what the problems are in the orgnisation yet you do nothing about it.

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

    Agile Practice shuts down in Valtech USA

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsValtech was known for Agile, but its US practice recently shut down. It is sad that the current leadership could not maintain the main strength of the company. In other countries, Agile has gone down and so it is sad for so many great Agile leaders who built it, and now have left the company. A brand comes to an end. The only Agile activity was to remove the Agile practice in an Agile way – in one scrum, there was no need for a second sprint!

    ConsThere are even lesser opportunities now, as most practices have shut down, including Telecom, SAP, Agile. Digital is managed by transplants from European offices, and they do not know the market in USA and are here for their American holiday, high compensation and lavish lifestyle in a public company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement indifference and incompetence caused this. Wrong leadership in Agile ended it. Selfishness of the Digital team and internal politics helped it more. Did not help to have HR manager run the shop.

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

    Separate US Divisions Need Integration

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsTalented team members - though many of the best are leaving.

    ConsValtech US is run like two or three different companies without much interaction. For some divisions there is no work at all and for others, business is booming. Some strong talent is leaving, some by choice and others by termination/layoff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncent the division heads to work together, not against each other. If you team up you could be very successful in the US. If things stay separate you won't last. As Benjamin Franklin told the colonies: Join, or Die. Also, you have a lot of talent in your people in ALL divisions, even those that are under performing. Consider a talent retention strategy before it's too late.

    Growing Agency

    Project Director (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe technology talent working in the NY office is impressive. Everyone seems to be at the forefront of platform development. A great place to learn and grow, or lead if you have the chops for it

    ConsThere is so much growth that the culture is new and learning. give it a few more months and the teams will find an identity

    worst company ever worked

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsCan't say anything good about this company. List is too long.

    Consno values, ethics, waste of time to think or consider about this company, other offices in overseas may be doing well but dallas office has no business. Only the clients they have are from adea and one or two.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand your needs and then hire people. When you don't have anything for the resource to work why hire and say some Bs**t and let them go. How can a architect manage the practice? Put right people in right place. This is sinking boat. Fit it or sink it.

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