I have been working at Smartsoft International full-time (More than 5 years)
It is a great place to learn emerging technologies and ensure growth in career as the management does not budge to invest in building an environment to harp the benefits of emerging technologies and motivates employees to upgrade skills as much
The support provided by the company to build a conducive environment for employees who travel from other countries on a work visa (I am non-immigrant work visa holder) to help them get comfortable with the nuances of living in a new country and working in a new workplace are pretty commendable
Flexibility to choose projects and area of specialization provides an individual the leverage to do what they prefer rather than do something that is thrust upon them by the management
Pretty responsive administration and human resources team that tends to lend a ear to employee concerns and builds solutions in accordance
Openness of the upper management to listen to new ideas pertaining to business directly from employees helps in projecting individual contribution to the fore, which usually die down along the conversation with the middle management in most concerns
Appraisal percentages for employees could be improved
The marketing of products and services can be made more effective to bring in more business
Upper management can keep on tab on the middle management where traces of nepotism are evident
Advice to Management
In all it is a great place to work and grow. The management's effort to enhance business associations to build more interesting business propositions and an effort to contain favoring individuals would help standardize the business process and ensure seamless growth.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Smartsoft International (Atlanta, GA) in September 2009.
Phone interview followed by 1:1 interview. Average difficulty.
All Questions were asked by novice developers or managers.
They don't even knew the answers for the questions they asked and
just kept saying ya.. ya.
