    I have been working at Entelect full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Diverse working teams, the makeup of the team is good for working through our backlog together.
    I also work with some interesting personalities, not robots. I enjoy some of our social events... the Entelect board game meetups are great fun!
    I'm surrounded by like-minded individuals who all share the same tech passion.
    Learning is important, lots of peer-driven events (dojos, beer 'n tech,
    Shared responsibilities and a good level of technical ownership in our work.
    Management regularly spends time with our team, shows an interest assisting with solving problems and connecting us with the people on other projects that have already solved it!

    Cons

    The business focus is aligned to professional services and big projects that we can sink our teeth into. I suppose that's where the most innovation is happening right now.
    Learning to adapt quickly and move at pace and deliver quality software has been hard, but has been a real learning experience.

    Advice to Management

    Never let go of your hiring principles, I enjoy working with smart people who challenge me to be better.

  2. "Entelect is a good company"

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

    Pros

    Entelect is the type of company that will push you to grow, they in courage knowledge sharing and helping each other grow as a result it's part the culture of the company. Entelect is great for graduates or junior developers, you will learn fast at a client. They have increases twice a year, and they have quite a big cap on the percentage.

    Cons

    When you consulting full time, you do not get the benefits of being at their headquarters, these are benefits like a open bar, learning forums during the day and really nice offices in Melrose arch. Recognition is not as transparent as for co-worker that are based at HQ, you are at the mercy of the client to tell your managers how well you are doing.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I have been working at Entelect full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The management team is very technical
    Good mix of technologies and thinking across the company, no narrow agenda
    Cool techie culture, able to build a personal network easily if thats your thing
    Effort is made to connect teams together through social clubs and various training
    Their recipe obviously works, its cool to be part of a company growing so quickly
    Year end functions are outrageous!

    Cons

    Expectations can be high, so when the pressure is on, learning to deal with it is important.
    The clients and projects they tackle are tough, there is a culture of ownership though so you're given space to make it your own if that's what you're looking for.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain hiring standards

    I have been working at Entelect full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Management easily accessible and always willing to take the time to talk you.
    - A lot of different projects to work on and you get the chance to tell Management what types of projects you would be interested in.
    - If you want to run with something, Management gives you space to try and the necessary guidance to make it a success.
    - A company with lots of different people, not a place where "1 type of person" gets ahead.
    - Mentorship is expected, not a luxury.
    - Many different social clubs.

    Cons

    Nothing really (adding more words because Glassdoor requires 5 or more words in each category)

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing!

    - Amazing culture

    - Social clubs
    - Support from management

    Not really a con that you wont find at any consultancy, but you could end up at a client that you dont enjoy working at. Entelect deals with this very well and will assist in a transfer if needed.

    Try keep the culture "start-up-like" as it currently is, even as the company is growing. It's something special.
