Pros

Optaros is a great company to work for. Co-workers are very dedicated to building a successful company and communication between management and employees couldn't be better. The energy level here is very high with hard working, dedicated personnel. This is clearly a company that cares about its employees and strives to ensure they are happy. "A happy worker is a productive worker" - and you are looking at one happy worker.

    Pros

    sink-or-swim mentality mixed with healthy doses of support. tremendously fun culture, a small company vibe with the opportunity to work with the top of the Fortune 500. They value talent, smarts, creativity, development of skills. Interesting, challenging work. Encourage writing exceptional code. Client facing work came quickly to me, as a young person I can't think of anywhere I'd rather work in Austin.

    Cons

    Projects can start to get redundant (nature of the sales process) - may be on the same technologies for a while unless you push pretty hard to move on to something else. Communication from home base in Boston to the Austin office is sometimes a little difficult

    "A company in transition"

    Pros

    - If you put in the work, you will get the recognition and advancement
    - Culture promotes good camaraderie among employees
    - If staffed right, one can get exposure to a ton of different projects
    - Healthy process for project reviews and year-end 360 reviews gives everyone the chance to get feedback from their co-workers

    Cons

    - Company is transitioning; it's in the middle of developing a product line to supplement the professional services group. To date, there are no known stories of consulting companies making a successful switch to a product company
    - Product line is being developed in Romania for cost reasons, so if you like products more than consulting and you are in the US, you are out-of-luck unless you want to move to Bucharest
    - Clear and unfortunate cultural separation between delivery group and senior management

    Advice to Management

    - Leadership team could be more transparent about their decision making process
    - Product development might be better off being done out of the US despite the higher labor costs: better communication and faster, more agile turnaround from a dedicated US team may yield faster results with higher quality and faster ROI. Delivery group proximity to product group may also yield better product assimilation with better implementation results and higher customer satisfaction and retention.
