    I have been working at EngagePoint full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    EngagePoint has super-smart people and lots of opportunity, where hard work is recognized. It is fun to be part of a dynamic, growing company.

    Cons

    The company is in transition, so at times there is a lot of work to do and pressure to get it done. Everyone pitches in, though, so it isn't really a hardship. You can really make a difference in a small company!

    Advice to Management

    Keep recognizing the hard workers!

    Pros

    They are very deceptive and good at not telling the truth.

    Cons

    They will screw over an employee and a contractor at the drop of a dime. They presently owe me over $17000 with no apparent excuse or reason. This company was kicked out of Minnesota before, Kicked out of Arkansas embarrassingly, Kicked out of Missouri Atrociously, screwed the hell out of Maryland and totally laughed at when they tried to do an RFP with Louisiana. They are presently being sued and if any state comes into contact with them please check that that lawsuit was properly handled because they have to state in RFP that they are being sued.

    Advice to Management

    Stop Screwing People over in fact just close down like you should have been already by now.

    I worked at EngagePoint full-time

    Pros

    I cannot think of anything and I try to be very objective.

    Cons

    A few words to describe and sum up the leadership of this company: unethical, no integrity, fluffs, lies, smoke and mirror, pump and dump, empty promises.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror, the emperor has no clothes!

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

    Pros

    There are no pros about this company at all. If I had to be forced to pick, I still come up short.

    Cons

    There is not enough space to write all the cons. CEO is inept and leadership had no clue how to run large projects.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the people in the company who don't know what they are doing and actually have processes in place as a company before you bid on work.

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

    Pros

    Competitive Salaries. Company has a good vision for supporting ACA and other government assistance programs but has trouble delivering. Time off policy good.

    Cons

    Too many remote employees without good communication infrastructure. Hires too many contractors that don't have a vested interest in developing a good supportable product. Many of the BA's lack the ability to communicate fluently in English and understand US business process which results in delivered product not meeting needs of client. Companies proprietary software developed by team of developers in Ukrane however very difficult to get documentation and also completely different business processes than in US.

    Pros

    The company organizes a townhall every week to discuss where it's focus is. It has been very informative and learning experience for a software engineer to know about organizational patterns, and legal and business atmosphere of technology I work with. It gives a perspective to understand where the technology is moving in society.

    Cons

    Townhalls need to be improved by introducing a more technical, in-depth presentations.

    Advice to Management

    Management engage business and sales a lot but it may be also beneficial to invite the technical teams in townhall.

    Pros

    Very friendly and talented people around in the company. Overall good atmosphere in the team. Pay is consistently at or above market average and paid always in time. Good benefits, unlimited PTO that works! The possibility of professional grows does exist. If you are showing good results you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    Frequent changes in company strategy and direction that brings some uncertainty. Company is going through rough times that brings even more everyday changes to the structure and performance. These changes are not always communicated well and clear enough to the stuff that leads to misunderstanding of company's future and slightly discourages people.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management shoud put more efforts to rally the people and return the company to a path of sucsess.
