How are career development opportunities at WideOrbit?

Pros

- Absolutely loved working with the people on my team - Competitive salary - Can work remotely

Cons

- If you tell managers about your problems, nothing will be done about them - Zero training for managers... if you promote a developer to a managerial position with no training, how can you expect them to perform well? They're totally different fields of study. - There's what appears to be a form of nepotism occurring within one of the orgs... friends promoted to positions where they're not actually performing those titles - No career growth due to nepotism issue - VP of certain org has no accountability and would rather blame issues on technology used and previous VP than blame himself - CEO has some sort of god complex... claimed all employees that weren't RIFed as the "chosen ones"

Advice to Management

Get a grip.

No career growth due to nepotism issue

What kind of career opportunities exist at WideOrbit?

Pros

Company gives you the opportunity to "own" your area, design processes and really make an impact. Each employee's contribution is significant. A growing company with a lot of energy, you will never be bored or stagnant.

Cons

Can be very busy at critical times, but management makes up for this with other benefits (generous vacation, team building outings, holiday celebrations, etc)

Why do WideOrbit employees quit?

Pros

There are good people at the company who want to participate in making change for the better.

Cons

The company has severe problems related to legacy employees and their HR Department that prevent the company from growing or moving forward in the arena of public companies (they have tried this but failed to do so). 1. Inability to adapt to a public company mindset - employees who have been with the company for several years are very resistant to change. These groups do not embrace Sox rules, Technical Accounting under US GAAP, etc. The lack of cooperation comes from lack of understanding. For example, being in a meeting discussing US GAAP rules have having several blurt out during the meeting 'no, absolutely not'. ii. Inability to scale existing processes to growth, change in environment, new systems, etc - the skill set of the applications support group spreads the company's ability to respond to support requests, trouble shooting a stop gap in the process very thin. This is not scalable given how flexible accounting needs to be to customers. iii. Current employee skillset in accounting is very limited and often primitive in terms of running a functional organization. Anything regulatory related, new ERP systems or supporting processes are not accepted in the HR, Accounting or Operations Groups. This is very much linked to issue ii above, however, these same groups cannot break out of the following habitual mindsets: a. "We've never done it that way before...." b. "No........" c. "We've always had activity in this account so something has to go there....." d. "Out contracts guarantee X", upon review it is clear that the either these people haven't read the contracts or lack the ability to understand basic English language structure. These are not complicated, they do require someone read them first before taking action that results in billing/accounting activity that is not valid. e. .....there is more but I don't have four hours to walk you through all of them iv. Most importantly, you are NOT rewarded for your work. A significant project with tangible results will either be marginalized or your employment is terminated before any remuneration is given. This is unprofessional, a cheap trick, below the belt and barbaric toward someone who has devoted blood sweat and time away from family to produce a quality work product.

Advice to Management

Look to changing components of the organization that embrace the arena you wish to play in, if that is a public company with responsibility to it's employees and modern processes that support an efficient organization with pride then act that way. If the desire is to remain private with myopic processes and employees that want to continue doing the same thing they always done then be resigned to getting the same results you've always gotten. Despite your efforts at private equity investors, the fact is the company is in a highly vulnerable position and without changes it will continue to remain vulnerable.
