Positive Outlook

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

(Translated from English)

Pros

Netcentric investiert viel in uns als Mitarbeiter: Apple-Hardware, ausgezeichnete Büros, Firmen-Events, Bonus-Regelungen.

Projekte vor allem in der Schweiz mit Möglichkeiten, für Tagungen und Projekte nach Barcelona und London zu reisen.

Management arbeitet wie alle anderen Mitarbeiter im Kunden-Bereich.

Cons

Wachstum muss richtig behandelt werden. Die Werte werden an den verschiedenen Standorten nicht auf dieselbe Weise gelebt. Eine Menge Arbeit.

Advice to Management

Freizeit für alle Neuen.

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

    Pros

    - Great colleagues
    - Apple exclusive equipment
    - Atlassian toolkit
    - Nice working environment, clean table policies, move around the office as you wish
    - Fully stocked kitchen, lot’s of coffee, kicker tables, kitchen talks and fun
    - Enterprise level projects and customers, big chance to learn about processes and business behind it
    - Many company events (yearly Summit event, Ski events, Summer events etc)
    - Flexible working hours, work from home possible on request.

    Cons

    - Salaries are low for every market (be it Spain, Germany, Swiss) compared to the current market state.
    - A company uses AEM for everything, even if it doesn't work properly (although company focus is on Enterprise Content Management). Sometimes it's a good thing, sometimes very bad depends on what you expect.
    - Project managers in some projects are usually not tech savvy and have no idea or overview what's going on in projects.
    - Tech stack is generally not interesting enough to keep engineers progressing. In theory, you can learn from other “pathways” like system engineering, but in practice, it is not true.
    - To be noticed, to progress, you have to contribute a lot to the company Holacracy model, it’s a very faulty system, fully bureaucratic, in practice it doesn’t work well, it takes away a lot of time and introduces unnecessary meetings and overhead.
    - Another problem is that company promotes this model, but everyone can feel the traditional structure behind the scenes. And there are other people who are hired or promoted to senior level, who do not contribute at all, but from everyone else, they expect you to contribute in order to progress. 90% of the people want to be evaluated based on the work they do, knowledge and experience, not on how much one can do meetings per day, how many roles in Holacracy that person holds, or how many hours person worked over weekends to push the project to the line, or to write some useless guidelines for technologies one can google away in 10 mins instead of searching in the wiki.
    - No clear plan for the future, or business model. Netcentric has a future goal in some numbers, but no idea how to get there. The company keeps hiring more consultants and shifting toward that model, pushing people to work onsite at the customer's more than in the office, without even asking them, or giving an option to decline. Not everyone wants to be away from home whole week, just for the company to get more money.
    - People leaving more than ever and it’s just a result of bad management and no clear future plan. If everyone wanted to work as consultants, they would have asked for a consultant salaries. It’s a different work and different market, and you can’t sell developers as consultants if they don’t want to do that.

    Advice to Management

    - The company grows too fast. Slow down hiring, look into the current talent pool, a lot of people deserve an "upgrade". Instead of hiring more senior people, shift around the current talents, you will get much better results and much more investment from the actual employees (this is for technical employees, cannot rate the consultancy/management). Everyone wants to contribute, but not many want to because they don't see actual feedback from the top. If you keep hiring seniors but not promoting proven L2, you will eventually lose them, and many of them actually are really fit for L3.

    - Stop evaluating people by their contribution to the holacracy circles. Currently, it feels like that. Right now, circles are pretty much filled out and not many people can actually contribute. Another problem is that many people repeat across the circles. This then feels like regular pyramid structure. Limit amount of roles person can fit into circles. Some people take too many roles in different circles.

    - Badge system is bad. It's the reason many people left and much more will leave. It is a utopistic system that everyone can be rated equally. Matrixes for badges are wrong, they require knowledge one cannot achieve while working normally on projects, and that's frustrating.

    - Raise salaries if you want to keep people. Offer them some perks. You already shut off Sailings trips because of expenses. It seems that expenses are cut every month more and more, but no gains for the employees.
