    I worked at Bahwan CyberTek full-time

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to grow in the US.

    Cons

    Do you know how big BCT is? 2000+ employees. They have been in the US for more than 10 years and have still not been able to make themselves known in the tech industry. Have fun telling your friends and family where you work, because no one has heard of Bahwan CyberTek. Huge fail from their marketing team or whoever's idea it was to not rebrand BCT for the US market.

    Advice to Management

    You need a better marketing/branding team. No one in the US knows who you are, which is a shame because you do a lot of great work. You have no social media presence. Your logo is very outdated. Where is your marketing department? Who is in charge of your branding? Because they are failing. I understand there is history and sentimental value behind your logo, but Apple and Google update their logo every few years, why can't you?

    Also, you want to be a product company, but your sales people are still selling your IP like a services company. Your SaaS products should be able to meet 75-80% of the requirements of your potential prospects and only about 20-25% should be customizable. But your sales people are constantly bending over backwards trying to make all your products seem like they can do everything under the sun. And then your developers end up having to do a crazy amount of work in order to meet requirements. A startup company might have to do that to make ends meet, but BCT is a big enough company to be able to say "no" sometimes. Not every prospect is a good fit.

    I have been working at Bahwan CyberTek full-time

    Pros

    Everyone here is pleasant. No major issues with any of my coworkers.

    Cons

    For a tech company, everything is so old fashioned. Our office is the most boring workplace I have ever been to in Silicon Valley. I don't even enjoy coming to work. Other companies have lounges, TVs, video games, foozball, music, beer, etc. because they want employees to enjoy coming to work. Not here. All we have is one ping pong table and not everyone plays ping pong (including me) so I'm out of luck.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times. You are a tech company in Silicon Valley, act like one!

    I have been working at Bahwan CyberTek full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Stability of the company is good. Recently there have been initiatives to target aggressive growth.

    Cons

    The old style hierarchical org structure may annoy you when you join from a company that is not so rigid. Some of the benefits need to change to adapt to current time.

    Advice to Management

    Refresh current brand, refresh management style to fit software industry.

    I have been working at Bahwan CyberTek full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable, secured job as long as you deliver and continue to be productive. Continues to innovate and concur new areas. Very strong management team (almost all of them are 15+ years in the company). You can bond and feel as family, as long as you align your goals with what company is trying to do.

    Cons

    Despite of the fact that the company is 15 years old, they continue to be opportunistic and have not done any work in creating a brand in the market place. Unfamiliar brand and zero marketing efforts. You can only survive if you're broad based; but specialize in core areas company makes money. Be prepared to be challenged with new technologies that you need to rapidly learn. Unpredictable career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention and listen to employee aspirations. Stay focussed on your core and learn to say no to non-core opportunities. Very importantly, invest on two areas : marketing and branding, employee training and development.
