    Negative Outlook

    I worked at FPT Software full-time

    Pros

    Diversity of technology stack and industrial domain which you can freely join if you want. There are also so many opportunities to travel across continents if you are good at English & technical.

    Cons

    The organization is now too political. Managerial people act by their feeling. If you are good but they don’t like you, you have less chance to boost your career path. I don’t recommend senior technical experts to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Managers know what to do but they don’t dare due to personal sake. If they do, they would made impact on other manager’s sake.

    I have been working at FPT Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very young and relax enviroment. Participate in almost every field in the industry. Don't need much experience to join.

    Cons

    Lower-than-average salary. Unclear technical career path (everyone goes into management). Overall low technical quality. Main business is offshore development, which might not be suitable for everyone. Training is almost nonexistence. Talent is overshadowed by politics. Lack of diversity; 90%+ are Vietnamese, even in foreign offices.

    Advice to Management

    Pay talents well instead of just letting them go. Recruit more non-Vietnameses.

    I worked at FPT Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Young people. - Relaxing work environment - Accept almost every applicant.

    Cons

    - Low salary - Lack talented developers due to low salary - No clear career path - No useful training program. All training are about company history, traditions, cultures, etc. - Bad management, inconsistant management system/tool - Treat new recruits badly no matter how talented they are - Bad vision IMO. They want to create as many developers as possible and take quantity...

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep rare talents. Train employees in more useful skills, especially English.
