Pros

The flexibility of working from home and practically ZERO travel makes work-life balance a real possibility without compromising on either sides. With a competitive pay structure, money is not an issue to be worried about. With a company-wide focus on adding exponential growth, NOT in the form of $'s, but in the form of value delivered to the customers, the focus of the team and the reception of the customers is evergreen positive and inspiring. People are nice, leadership is strategically focussed on long term goals and provides stability to the organization.

Cons

Depending on the type and place of employment, there might be minimum to no-benefits besides the pay. However, this might not be an issue as the competitive pay bridges the gap.

Pros

- Despite being a fully remote organisation, there is a sense of collaboration within the organisation, and you get to work with the best in class people from across the globe - Its an extremely fast paced, ever evolving working environment which continues to force you to step out of whats comfortable, and enables personal and professional growth by challenging yourself to keep learning and improving, and facilitates a productive work culture - The level of flexibility and freedom in being able to work remotely is absolutely amazing - Great leadership team with excellent work ethic, which they ensure that it trickles down to all the team members, and have everyone aligned with the organisational goals - Quality work is not only expected, but recognised and appreciated - Competitive pay

Cons

Not exactly any cons, but a few disclaimers of sorts for people who may be new to this kind of organisation and work culture: - Contract employment is not for everyone, as its a completely different style of work and you get paid for as long as you work. So what thats means is unfortunately you don't get benefits like insurances, or paid leaves / vacation days, or sick leaves or Federal Holidays. You may choose to take whichever day off as you desire, but they are all unpaid leaves. - Most roles offer ample flexibility for people to be able to choose and define their own working hours, but a few specific roles might limit that flexibility a bit to a more defined (but overall still flexible) work schedule options. As long as you are able to align yourself with respect to the demands of your role, you should be good to go.

Advice to Management

There could be a consideration to introduce and offer a few benefits like insurance and a few paid vacation days and sick leave options.

Pros

- You will work with a diverse global team of teammates and clients. - Most people in the company are very professional in their communication and their work ethic. - There is a good work culture of respect, cordiality and support within the team. - The product exposure is diverse and doesn’t get stale. The product portfolio frequently changes through new product acquisitions or internal reallocations.

Cons

- 100% remote work may not be for everyone. You might never physically meet your teammates or clients. - Client base is global so some flexibility in working to accommodate different timezones may be required for customer facing roles especially. - Although roles may not change, frequent change in the products where your role is applied may not suite everyone. You must be open to learning new things. - The software monitoring requirement for time logging takes some getting used to.

There is a good work culture of respect, cordiality and support within the team.

Pros

I came in as part of acquisition of my company into ESW Capital group. I am currently working as CSM with IgniteTech. I was previously with Avolin which is another BU (like IgniteTech) in ESW Capital. Overall, I have worked for 3.5 years with ESW Capital as of now. Below are few of the pros (as per me) which one consider before making a decision to be part of the company. - Intellectual group of people from across the globe. They have tough selection process. - Contract based role (well that brings disadvantages like no paid leaves, insurance etc.) - Higher than Market Pay rates for most countries - They flash the hourly rate on careers website. I have not seen such thing with any other company. The pay scale is same irrespective of the country from where you work. - Flexible working hours - You have to work for 40 hours in a week. You can complete that in 4 days or in 7 days and work anytime of day as you want. However, the only expectation would be attend meetings based on client expectation (if you have client facing role). I guess that is fair expectation in any company. - Adaptation is the key here. The company has a dynamic culture and they will experiment the new strategies if something does not work. If change excites you, this is the place to work. If you are resistive to change, you might not survive long. - Metrics Driven Approach - Every individual has a role to contribute towards companies goal for the year. CEO is very clear on the goal and communicates same at the start of year. Each of the contractor in company contributes to achieve that goal. - They don't take no as an answer. This can be tough but if you have a very valid reason on why something cannot be done, it is definitely acceptable. But, the atmosphere is inclusive to find a solution or workaround for that NO. - Competitive Atmosphere - They believe in healthy competition. One would improve as a person if he is in competitive atmosphere. Well, there is no place for you in company if you cannot try. Try and fail is accepted. But not trying is not accepted for sure. - 100% Remote - No travel time wastage, no energy waste in travelling, wake up fresh and work and have rest time with your loved ones. Plan your weeks to have long weekends with easy Friday as you only need to hit 40 hours. - Flat Organization - You can reach out to CEO as well to have 1:1 discussion with him.

Cons

- Initial days can be tricky or tough - As the environment is unique in this company, you might have issues in adapting initially. - 40 hours clock - They have a tracking mechanism to identify if a person is really working or not. This can be seen as a negative but this is definitely required to identify those who try to take advantage of remote environment. If you work genuinely, there won't be any such issues you would face. - Changing Environment - Sometimes this can add frustration. You might have to learn new product and then 2 weeks later, the strategy would change. So, that can be frustrating sometimes. - Job Security - They do not have this word in the dictionary which is very true with business world. It is world known fact that no lunches are free. So, if you add value to the system, you will be part of system. As per me, this is a pros rather than con. However, it would depend from person to person. You can definitely reach out to anyone to get more responsibilities if you feel you have available time in your week to add more value. They would respect that

Advice to Management

As the contractor who leaves the organization has very limited time in notice period, we need a strong mechanism to absorb what best we can and store it in a knowledge repository. Google drive does not do justice to that.

The company has a dynamic culture and they will experiment the new strategies if something does not work.

Pros

-A fully remote company embracing asynchronous communication, which allows flexible work hours and a healthy work-life balance. -A clear and strong company vision. -Processes and playbooks that are well documented and updated when needed. Necessary for a remote work company but still pretty amazing. -Working with a group of intelligent and driven individuals from all over the world.

Cons

As with every remote job, without being in the same room, social bonding with colleagues can become harder. This is mitigated by the feeling of being part of a team that works together towards the same common goal, and a culture that promotes engagement.
