    I worked at Emtec full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, competitive pay. The management was friendly and seems to genuinely care about their employees career plans and in general.

    Cons

    My experience unfortunately was one where the company was not interested in the region I lived. They kind of abandoned it. I would have had to travel a lot to continue with them. So, I had to jet.

    Advice to Management

    Management overall is good. I would say to keep doing what you are doing. Getting frequent input from employees and praising good performance is a good quality that more employers should have

    Pros

    A great group of people to work with, and interesting customers to deal with. The projects were interesting and frequently challenging.

    Cons

    The Career path was not a reality, was always interesting work to do, just no upward mobility. Managers did not take the review process seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Get all the consultants trained in the new technology so the company can continue to provide great customer service to our customer base. Cloud based products are the future wave.

    Pros

    Flexibility is available as it is mostly a traveling or remote position for work. Just like any typical PSoft consulting job.

    Cons

    Not sure they are going to be able to sustain the PSoft practice enough to keep all of the talented consultants around.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Emtec full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Easy access to leadership team. Unlimited PTO policy. Fair work-life balance. Ability to some work remotely. Good internal IT support team.

    Cons

    Lack of company direction. No shared vision. Company is losing money on most projects. Too many acquisitions too soon, ZERO budget for innovation. Mixed bag of offshore talent and frequent shuffling of offshore leadership. Poor corp benefit plan with massive employee out of pocket cost. Unstable company financial environment leads to lack of job security and major hesitation to speak up. Major disconnect between sales and delivery. Lack of experienced Oracle talent necessary to deliver complex projects. Push to offshore everything and everyone despite lack of quality deliverables.

    Advice to Management

    CEO is a great guy but he is being led astray. He needs to get into the field and see what is really happening and stop listening to unqualified and disengaged Exec leadership, that is merely telling him what he wants to hear. This needs to happen before it is too late and the current investors run for the hills. All of my peers with marketable skills have either left or they are actively looking to leave, since the last round of layoffs. Very poor form letting loyal employees go right before the holidays with little to no severance. Yes, we ALL noticed. Whatever loyalty we had for the company went right out the window with that heartless maneuver.

    I worked at Emtec full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In the past if you had the numbers they did not micro manage.

    Cons

    After the company was bought by Emtec it was not employee friendly and the new owner brought on way too many of his own people without looking what had been there for years.

    Advice to Management

    The company was bought for a reason, after take over upper management became very out of touch with the people making them money. Turnover drastically increased where this was never an issue.

    Pros

    They provide you great learning experience by giving you responsibilities even if you do not have previous experience doing that.
    They constantly send you for different training programs to improve you technical and commercial knowledge

    Cons

    They need to implement a proper process in the company to handle the order which comes in from the customers.
    Senior employees of the company disrespect the new employees and try to take advantage of them

    Advice to Management

    Career growth is very slow and also provide at least a good starting salary for new employees. Otherwise the attrition rate will always be high for your company
