    I have been working at FarShore full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    All team members act as a single global team with regular meetings with clients and one another. The work is creative, challenging and interesting. The company treats its team members and its customers like partners and works to help clients succeed in their businesses. The company continues to grow and expand. It's fun to be part of a team that is growth-oriented. The company recognizes when team members go above and beyond to deliver.

    Cons

    FarShore is serious about its commitment to each other and to its clients. At every level, the team does what it takes to make a client successful. This is a great place to work if you like to work as a team, learn, and roll up your sleeves; but this is not a place for someone who wants to be a one person show.

    I have been working at FarShore full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic culture and team. Management is easy to work with and everyone pulls on same side of the rope. Lots of flexibility to create a role that maximizes your skill set to help the company.

    Cons

    Once a year there is a client need in which we need to get someone in one of our off shore offices in off hours. We always do, but it is a bit stressful.

    I have been working at FarShore full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Each and every worker at FarShore is motivated and hard working. Even with the distance of the offshore offices we all work together as one team. The weight of a workload is never shared too much by any one person. As an employee, I have continuously felt that management highly values my work along with my opinions, critique, suggestions, and concerns. It's not hard to care about your job at this company.

    Cons

    As the company continues to grow things are still becoming concrete internally. Be prepared to learn new things and adapt to changes in processes.

    I have been working at FarShore

    Pros

    FarShore works on meaningful projects and cares deeply about their clients. The clients range and vary so everyday is a learning experience. The company is global so it's great to connect with so many people around the world. Great access to management.

    Cons

    The company is growing so this isn't a place for a check the box job. Motivated employees succeed here.
