    I worked at Pythian full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pythian is a great company to work for. They offer rewarding jobs, good salaries, they treat their employees well and they have their finger on the pulse when it comes to satisfaction of their team. This is one of the rare companies that understands that keeping their employees happy is the key to succeeding. They also have great benefits, allow working remotely, they trust their employees to do their job, do not micromanage (although that may just be my management that was like that), and allow for flexibility when personal situations require flexibility. The CEO also does periodic updates to the whole global team, as well as does ''fireside chats'' where he will discuss any topic that the employees want. I would definitely recommend working there and would return happily.

    Cons

    On the negative side, they have gone through some staff reductions in order to restructure and focus on their core, which got some people a bit worried, but they are doing well and are growing again. Other than that, I can't find much negative to say.

    I’m glad to see that you enjoyed our SEED allowance that we provide to all employees for their continuous development. This is a popular perk amongst our team members as they can use their allowance to attend conferences, subscribe to online trainings, attend workshops and much more! With regards to time tracking, I understand that at times it can be challenging, however it is important for our clients to maintain transparency the projects we work on. I would absolutely welcome you to reach out to our Director of HR, Heather Hillier if you'd like to discuss specific concerns that you believe have not been properly heard. You can contact her directly at hillier@pythian.com.
