    I have been working at Pythian full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good self-training budget program. Talking with the few experts that are still around.

    Cons

    Inconsistent working hours and personal life balance due to many gaps in coverage (turnovers, bad resource planning). Remote workers contributions are often forgotten. The Company has a constant change of heart on basically everything. So don't get too excited about anything new, it might just go away soon or be dead on arrival. Lower management is unprepared and frail (with very few exceptions) . High management is overly optimistic.

    Hi there, happy to see you are enjoying our self-training budget and connecting with our Pythian experts! I am sorry to hear how you feel about management however, I would have to say leadership is difficult at the best of times. Through initiatives like our monthly leadership development modules, we will continue to build and invest in our people leaders because as you may know... managers have the biggest impact on the employee experience. I would absolutely welcome you to reach out to HR if you'd like to discuss specific concerns that you believe have not been properly heard.

    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.
