Pros

Very competitive pay. Very competent peers once you get to the interview process and on boarding. They are serious about seeking the top 1% of the candidate pool and in drawing from across the entire globe of talent, that means they need to sift through a lot of applications and data to let the top talent rise to the top. That can be VERY confronting for most applicants who are used to being in the top echelons of the hiring pool. If being measured and evaluated against other applicants or your colleagues is confronting, IgniteTech and the entire ESW enterprise will either challenge you to grow inside that environment or you will self-select from the hiring pool. The enterprise is not shy about giving feedback about where performance is not up to standard and where that performance compares to colleagues in similar roles. In that regard, they are super transparent once you get on-boarded/hired. The hiring process, while very confronting and challenging for most, is a GREAT example of what it will be like once you are hired to the team. Not often noted in the reviews is that if the hiring process does not deter you, once hired, your performance is measured and assessed on a 10-minute basis. If you are used to getting distracted and having 15-30 minute blocks of time be unfocused or unproductive at your current role, this position will stretch you as you are not paid if you are not productive towards moving the needle in your performance. You will know you are good fit if you are open to being stretched and challenged AND you understand you would rather work 40 intense hours instead of 60+ with the same results. That is what it was like for me as I began my initial orientation and on-boarding. If after reading this, you feel you are not up to that kind of performance then you probably are not a good fit for the culture and the company. If however, that challenge calls to you and you are someone who seeks to grow and expand your abilities to new heights, continue on in the hiring process. It is worth it at the end. Finally, if you can make it here, you will THRIVE anywhere else. Maybe you should consider this company as a way of evaluating your own ambitions and fortitude. Get in, make a difference and a contribution to this organization and anywhere else you might go in your career afterward will look like a cake-walk. My personal encouragement to you is to take the challenge and keep fighting. If you are worth it and if your family is worth it, keep going. I personally had to apply for 6 positions, take 15 different assessments, and had over 11 interviews before I finally was hired. The pay is exactly as advertised and no gimmicks.

Cons

Very time consuming application process. As noted in so many other reviews, there are a lot of assessments to jump through. The company is very “process-oriented” and can appear in-human in some of the ways they sort through candidates. The company has some very ambitious goals and that can be discouraging at times. They really push the human spirit to overcome challenges and to grow to new levels. They do not want team members who are easily discouraged. You MUST have grit to work here as you will get pushed HARD.

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.

A clear and strong company vision.

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.
