    I have been working at Softway full-time

    Pros

    Can't think of anything at all.

    Cons

    Lack of collaboration. Very dictator-like atmosphere. All Directors are home-grown and have no knowledge of leadership or even their own work. Everyone is severely underpaid. CEO only cares about his favorites. Company is almost 12 years old yet still is barely surviving. No job security at all. Have had several lay-offs. Everyone is pigeonholed. India people are treated even worse. No opportunities for training or learning...

    Advice to Management

    Shape up and get rid of the dead weight in your Directors. Pay heed to what the people in the bull-pen are saying and not just your yes-men managers.

    Pros

    Softway is different from any company I’ve known or come to learn about from others. It’s hard to put into words, let alone a review, because no one can really express or explain enough for someone to understand what it's like to work here with this team. This family. On the surface, I can see how there are things that can come off a bit disheveled. Our organization is still trying to figure things out and make things...

    Cons

    Of course, with everything great comes with some negative aspects. I won't sugarcoat anything. Your job will be hard at times because you’re juggling a lot, and there will be days that are harder than others, but the support your team will give is amazing. No one will let you struggle and if they can do anything to help you, they will. All you have to do is ask. And we need better oatmeal options for breakfast.

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are a family first and foremost that cares about each other. It’s incidental that we work together and find answers to puzzles together. That’s what makes working at Softway fun! We will consider your request for better oatmeal options.

    Pros

    some people are fun to work with.

    Cons

    I'll start by pointing out the obvious. Every time someone writes a negative review on here, magically a few days later there is a 5 STAR review posted, most likely by someone from the little "group" that everyone writes about here. I haven't been here that long and I won't be here much longer. This place is a cancer that only breeds back stabbing and distrust. If you plan on getting a job here, DON'T TRUST ANYONE, there...

    Advice to Management

    Stop writing false reviews just to keep your rating up and bury the negative ones. You guys are so full of yourselves that you can't see that this is really a terrible place to work. And don't tell me to go "talk to a director I trust" because there are none.

    It's unfortunate that you feel this way. All feedback is good feedback and we appreciate your candor. As for the roles, we’ve been doing a lot of intense team workshops that have identified gaps that we’ve started addressing in 2018. But we’ll definitely look into this more, talk ...
