Pros

Flexible working hours, good benefits, decent pay, little pressure.

Cons

Old boys (and girls) network, all of upper management are friends. Spouses/girlfriends are routinely hired despite skill for job. Company was in on ground floor of online printing but now is getting passed by competitors who are more mature/professional. Little pressure in most positions but this is because of a lack of management rather than a relaxed atmosphere.

Advice to Management

Stop hiring your friends and instead hire competent people. Focus on core business.

    Pros

    Unless you're one of the executives who are currently draining the company of every dollar possible in order to enrich themselves at any cost - there is not any good reason to work for Farheap (Opensoft). That is unless you have absolutely no other alternative.

    Cons

    No work / life balance. No security. FH is a dead-end for anyone except the execs that are currently draining the company dry of all it's resources.

    Advice to Management

    Shame on you.

    Pros

    Basically you can learn there new technologies and business but you could not teach and polish that skills on their projects. Just getting superficial knowledge.
    Possibly you may count on competitive salary but package is too poor, also unstable company dependency on sells from overnightprints.com may easily cut off your earns and salary.

    Cons

    Company likes to hire weak management with JUST strong desire to have a power over others, they are not leaders. People who work there are juniors, H1s and immigrants. This is why this management is too angry for a power.

    The company is very bureaucracy. Once again this is a management strategy. All your initiatives will be used against you one day.

    They easily fire out skilled guys and even whole teams can be terminated in one day!

    Opensoft, LLC as a subsidiary SW development/QA service provider with general manager Roumen Antonov (very negative person) is absolutely non-competitive company in this country.
    This manager together with old-fashioned QA manager turned this company into bureaucratic and weak way, demotivating their employee every day with non stable strategy and sly plans in mind.
    I wounder how this management got their positions, may be recruitment is a question?
    Mostly old party of highly skilled professional are left that company. So now the team is just contractors and outstaffing from India and Russia which still can't deliver any ready to go project - just spending owner's money.

    Advice to Management

    Learn more about people management in IT, improve your technical skills too, otherwise your employee will fool you as usual.
    And a most important - just try to hide your happiness of power. People feel that as a smell in air and don't like to suffer from your ambitions. Most guys hate you out for all these shits!
