I have been working at Edifecs full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great opportunities for growth, there are many places to learn new technologies and to push the boundaries of technologies.
Deals with large amounts of data throughput, that big data like technologies are highly sought after.
Full of smart motivated people who drive to get things done.
Very competitive compensations against large players like Amazon, Microsoft, and Google.

Cons

Company has been rapidly growing, and with it comes some growing pains, but this leaves large openings for motivated people to excel.

    I worked at Edifecs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None. Other that the health plan is ok.

    Cons

    • Management is extremely un-professional, degrades the employees, and absolutely does not care about employee career paths. It’s blatantly obvious that management only cares about their careers and achievements. I have been in IT for many years and can honestly say Edifecs management is by far the worst I have worked under.
    • 99% of employees are from India, including the management, thus making for a completely different culture if you’re a US citizen. Employees speak in the native language frequently in the office, which is un-professional. Project time lines are so unrealistic that’s its stupid on management’s part to even consider them.
    • The Edifecs product is health care transactional software. The software is extremely cumbersome to configure, upgrade, and implement. Client complaints are heard daily, and it’s hard to work with the clients when you feel the same pain on dealing with Edifecs software as they do.
    • Retention rate is below average. Employees with over 10 years are treated like gods, but its amazing what very little they actually know, taking into account their many years at Edifecs. Edifecs is the only company that I have worked for where employees only answer internal emails that they want to or can answer. All others are ignored. I believe in answering all internal correspondence.
    • If your fresh out of College and entering the IT field. Edifecs is a waste of time. Working at Edifecs with their open source troublesome proprietary software keeps you out of the loop as the rest of the IT world blows by. Leaving Edifecs after many years leaves you with a limited set of skills. Unless you’re a Java programmer.

    Advice to Management

    Screen your management and hire managers that are qualified and know how to manage people in the United States.

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

    Pros

    The place is packed with smart, hard working people. CEO really cares and continues to improve the environment, the culture, the opportunities, and promote a healthy work-life balance. Good career opportunities, compensation, & experience available for anybody willing to work for it.

    Cons

    Company is growing fast, changing, maturing, and improving constantly. It is not an easy 9 to 5 job. Not a good fit unless confident, motivated, self-driven and flexible to change.

    Advice to Management

    Be slower to higher, quicker to fire.
