What are perks and other benefits like at Spotware?

Pros

Some nice, highly qualified colleagues

Cons

Not a decent employer. Here’s why: Absolutely no stability; Policies are introduced and cancelled within a few weeks (work from home, expenses & claims, etc.) Employees are terminated on the spot without any notice or explanation. Sometimes right after they’ve relocated to Cyprus with their families. Salaries are increased/decreased without specific criteria or structure. No performance reviews either. There is no communication between the teams and management. Decisions are made and employees are often not informed of important changes. Serious issues with management behaviour. CEO has the emotional capacity of a toddler - can throw a tantrum at any given moment, yell at you and insult you. Management considers daily insults in an open space, or even in writing a decent management tool. HR: crazy turnover there, nobody seems to cope with management. There’s a new team every couple of years. Note that confidentiality is not respected in any way. Any benefits other than salary are viewed as ridiculous and pointless. No 13th salary, no expense policy or any benefits that similar companies offer. Salaries are not competitive either. No diversity at all - almost all employees are male, aged 25-40 and come from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. Women and candidates from other countries are considered “lower quality” and locals are mainly for admin work. Sexism (and even harassment) is not addressed in any way. An entire wall of the office is “decorated” with photos of naked models and has been there for years, despite several complaints made. Old furniture, torn couches, dirty toilets and a teeny tiny kitchen for about 80 people. Low air quality (employees even brought their co2 detectors to confirm this). No company culture, very few events, no learning & development initiatives and lots of sour faces. Overall, not the best option for an employer - if you’re coming to Cyprus, there are far better choices.

Advice to Management

You’ve received so much advice from employees over the years and you’ve lost so many good people, but you’re just not open to it. Inflexibility and lack of trust to the people that YOU choose to employ is what stops you from being a quality employer.

No 13th salary, no expense policy or any benefits that similar companies offer.

Does Spotware offer malpractice insurance?

Pros

- Nice technology stack - Good work-life balance - Professional colleges - Decent health-insurance package - Pizza every Thursday

Cons

- Nobody cares about atmosphere in the office - almost all the employees have sour faces, they're too serious and I understand why - there is no team building activities at all - There is no onboarding process - it's extremely strange - you leave your life behind, change the country of living in order to join this company and get no welcome or onboarding - Some managers are too arrogant - Awful openspace office - There is no corporate culture - No career growth opportunity - No way to communicate with top management of the company, no possibility to be heard - You're always bad employee, you're always wrong, only the company's top management is right - No possibility to leave anyone a feedback - there is no thing like 360-review - You can easily be made redundant or fired, keep in mind that - they don't value people, you're just resource

How are career development opportunities at Spotware?

Pros

If you are lucky, you could intercept with cool people there, but it does not go to the company itself. Thursday Pizza. Can’t recall anything else.

Cons

No corporate culture, no processes, no career growth or salary increase, arrogant management, micromanagement, dictatorship. Cats in the office, it could be the problem for those people with allergies, also the office itself is not fine place for work.

Advice to Management

Build corporate process, hire proper managers to drive the projects, respect your employees.

No corporate culture, no processes, no career growth or salary increase, arrogant management, micromanagement, dictatorship.
