    I have been working at Compugen (Canada) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some good people leading specific practice areas. We have expanded our portfolio of offerings with the acquisition of Metafore and lots of their good people stayed on so the experience and tenure we gained was significant.

    Cons

    Way to much focus on profit. Dictate margin levels to sell at. Only set up to handle very large companies and public sector industry. Attention to detail suffers and customer service drops to smaller accounts or transactions if the company comes across a bigger opportunity. Take it or leave it attitude at leadership level. Sales management do what they are told by their boss vs implement improvements and help the sales staff be successful. There has been over 5 sales director changes in under 7 years in one group in this office.

    Advice to Management

    Build an operational team to accommodate for pace in new business development and accounts that are considered mid market. Listen to your customers requirements vs trying to cram them into our existing delivery models. Deliver to SLA’s no matter how big or small the customer is.
