    I worked at Emtec full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Emtec was a former strong contender in this space when they were Emerging Solutions. They had a good management direction. Pay was good.

    Cons

    Once Emtec took over Emerging Solutions, they had a lack of direction in the Hyperion space, specifically around the HFM/FDM product. Management used to have drive for this. They now aren't focused in this area and clients can tell.

    Advice to Management

    Make investments in this arena and bring quality talent to the table. Have focus for this if not too late.

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

    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

    work from home option are available - lexible.

    Cons

    Too many changes, too many acquisitions and org changes.

    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

    none

    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.
