    I worked at Valtech full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Valtech 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.

    Cons

    All 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.

    I have been working at Valtech full-time

    Pros

    Work-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.

    Cons

    Far too many to mention

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Write 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".

    I have been working at Valtech

    Pros

    Some 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.

    Cons

    Most 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 ManagementAdvice

    You know what the problems are in the orgnisation yet you do nothing about it.

    I worked at Valtech full-time for more than a year

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Valtech 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 ManagementAdvice

    Incent 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.

    Pros

    The 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

    Cons

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