    Pros

    Great people to work with, with a few huge exceptions. They have great clients and do amazing work.

    Cons

    "New" means nothing. There is no time for you to ask questions, frowned upon, get real training on systems I've never used and consistently fighting for resources while you are booked consistently at 80+ hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Spending more time on onboarding and training would really help with the %50 turnover rate you have now. Also, give people a chance! No one is perfect, but if a client doesn't like someone's tone, give them a chance to change and grow. Right now, I'd consider it a hostile workplace, and can prove it with emails and Skype messages insulting me, while I was on the thread.

    Pros

    Prestigious clients, training is encouraged and supported, ability to work from home. Overall a great experience as a software developer. It's a full service digital agency, so people from various horizons and background. Also, awesome cultural diversity. Lovely offices and good office culture

    Cons

    Benefits are not so good. There are quite a few irrelevant employees (as far as developers are concerned), which is never a good surprise when you end up working with them. Not so agile, clients run the show, setting the timeline and requirements from the start (although as we all know, it always changes).

    Pros

    - Compatible salaries
    - Small, with room to grow and theoretical willingness to change
    - Great people

    Cons

    - French culture, mind-frame, perception - to understanding local business culture and expectations.
    - Terrible benefit package
    - Messy processes
    -

    Advice to Management

    Being nice on the surface just doesn't cut it - You have to LISTEN. The benefit package is horrible, perks are nonexistent, and personal growth-path is unclear.
    Be transparent about the company goals. It seems like you are currently focused on how to sell the NY business, not on how to grow the business & retain dedicated employees.

    Pros

    Can't think of any... their comp is below market, benefits lacking, no re-investment in the company, self-serving management, no long term growth strategy...all signs of a sickly organization.

    Cons

    The organization has no leadership... they have lots of executives and managers, but no leaders. No strategy, no investment into its people or practices... the only thing they seem to be good at is suing former employees and disappointing clients. Before you decide to join this organization, look into their financials and pending lawsuits.

    Advice to Management

    Start over

    Pros

    You can meet some talented people and good clients. You will learn how bad Finance, HR and Admin can be

    Cons

    No opportunities as management is only interested in Northern Europe. Read the financial report - revenue in US is down by 25%, India down by 20%, parts of Europe down by 20%. Some European executives have come to US to get big salaries and enjoy life at expense of company. Layoffs happening constantly

    Advice to Management

    Please resign as you have ruined the company for your selfish interests. Be honest with shareholders about true condition of company in US, India, parts of Europe. Terminate employees who violate HR policies Do not cheat the Australian company you bought

    Pros

    Nice office location for commuters, great coworkers with exception of executives and directors, some nice clients.

    Cons

    Clueless or apathetic management, awful HR, bad benefits, no culture to speak of, and unorganized project teams which causes projects to fail before they even start.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of those in leadership roles who contribute nothing and focus on your employees. Almost all the reviews here mention how bad the benefits are, this has been going on for years.

  9. Communication is set at high standards with quick responses when needed.
