    I worked at GFT Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent pay, no micromanagement, quick promotions both in terms of pay and responsibility, supportive directors, friendly and fun to work with, smart coworkers

    Cons

    The German management a bit clunky, but if you aren't under their thumb, it is a great place to work. The New York office is crowded, but that is just a sign of faster than expected growth.

    Advice to Management

    Expand in the United States as much as possible. There is a lot of room for growth and GFT is starting to build a strong reputation.

    Pros

    - a few good people (but are probably gone now) - good if you get put on interesting projects

    Cons

    - super bureaucratic - high turnover (people are always leaving) - company is super homogenous (white-old-male dominated)

    Advice to Management

    - restructure leadership - be more selective with who you're hiring

    I worked at GFT Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The salary was very good for the amount of work I was given. Granted the work wasn't very fulfilling.

    Cons

    Highly disorganized organization with no direction. The work was not meaningful and selling was difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the company strategy and what the goals are instead of a shotgun approach.

    I worked at GFT Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are still some good people to work with left there, but not many. Work life balance is satisfactory. Benefits are adequate for a small company.

    Cons

    Very poor management over the last 18 months caused large and ongoing layoffs this year. Incapable sales team, can only sell staff aug work - no meaningful projects have been sold in well over a year. Company has lost its valuable culture. GFT isn't a brand - it's a staffing firm.

    Advice to Management

    Have a long term strategic vision for the business and take care of all of your employees - not just a choice few.

    Pros

    Exposure to cutting edge tech projects; a global view of FS/tech.

    Cons

    Benefits could be more enticing, but from what I understand it is currently up for review.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to motivate people with a clear and strong vision for growth and success.

    I worked at GFT Technologies for less than a year

    Pros

    Good exposure to consulting. Good projects in the beginning. The firm isn't the same place it was when I started.

    Cons

    Lots of layoffs. No meaningful consulting work for the NA office. The only work the sales people seem to be to secure is staff aug. Meaning GFT NA is no different from any of a dozen other IT recruiting firms. Be careful with any contacts you sign. You will be at the mercy of both the client and the internal politics of GFT. Don't expect to be recognized for your efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Sad state of affairs. The reputation of previous projects still opens doors with outside clients, however as the industry innovates and GFT lags, I'm not sure if that will continue for much longer. The NA office needs a complete reset. Recognize your talent and put a program in place to retain them.
