Pros

They have a small but loyal portfolio of existing customers. Current engineers and Project Managers are experienced and are hard workers.

Cons

Turn over in the sales group , is more than 70% within first few months. No one is ever on the same page. There is miscommunication between upper management. Projects do not always go smoothly as a result. Lacks team environment . SalesTraining is limited with no mentoring. No company Vision. Poor Benefits. No opportunities for advancement.

Advice to Management

Improve communication. Treat your employees with respect without embarrssing them.

    I have been working at ExtraTeam full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    High compensation
    Amazing management team
    Company is always evolving itself to stay relevant and profitable
    Great people to work with; Always available to help and answer questions
    Work-Life balance is manageable
    Hard work/effort is noticed and openly acknowledged
    Holiday party makes all the hard work worth it

    Cons

    I don't have any major "Cons" but here is some insight into what it takes to be an engineer for this company:
    1. You need to be able to handle multiple projects at once - PM's help but the tasks are all yours
    2. You need to have very good communication skills
    3. You need to manage your work-life balance. Regular manager 1:1 meetings provide opportunity to communicate any balance issues. It can get overwhelming if you are not communicating with management.
    4. You need to be focused on customer success and satisfaction
    5. You need to be able to learn and apply new skills, quickly
    6. You need to be able to ask questions without the fear of appearing inferior

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
    Continue to stay relevant in this industry as it changes
    Remain agile and focused on customer success
    Employ amazing people

    I have been working at ExtraTeam full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    From the top down, ExtraTeam cares about their customers' success. The emphasis is on doing the job right and delivering what was promised. Really supportive group of engineers that are highly certified and experienced. Diverse range of clients and solutions keeps you on your toes. Veteran sales team who are fun to work with. Most have been with the company for 4+ years. Flexible work hours. Consulting engineers work remotely much of the time. Company will pay for professional certifications and training. Great holiday party. Promotes from within.

    Cons

    Pace doesn't let up, so you need to manage your time. You can keep a work/life balance, but don't expect the company to do it for you. There is no coasting in this job, so be sure you like to be challenged.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows, continue to invest in the company culture and process improvement: more team building events, more internal training, more dialog with management.
