    Great people, lots of professionalism. People do not just check in and out but actually try to make things happen, solve problems. I've been working in technology for 15+ years and still learnt a lot from these guys

    Cons

    Internal systems for tickets, leaves, etc - hope you don't ever have to use them. Areas are not that well integrated

    Advice to Management

    Always value your people

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

    Pros

    Flexible work environment and exposure to different businesses.

    Cons

    Management is very weak for remote groups. Salary is below market. Career advancement is non existent. Globant hasn't invested enough time, money, or thought in strategies for cultivating their staff.

    If you just got into the job market and have never had experience working on enterprise projects, you might consider taking on a role at Globant for the experience, but plan on staying no longer than 1.5 years or it may be bad for your long term career growth.

    Advice to Management

    You're trying to operate a very leaky ship. If you've been at Globant for over 1.5 years, it's time to reassess your prospects. If you are too invested in the company to leave, re-calibrate your core value system to stop being so exploitative.

    Reporting structure can be confusing

    Pros

    Good clients and that's all

    Cons

    Bad management, poor pay and lot of broken promisses. Management is all a bunch of non technical people only worried about their bonuses and how to make more money by engaging you into tons of work and poor payment. They lie to clients, cheat them, put underqualified people and bill them as experts and expect that the rest of the team do their job for the same pay. They overcharge clients for business travels, unexistent experts and hours. Send you to United estates to work with a B1 visa and make you lie to the authorities. Managers are secretaries that only knows about spreadsheets and internal billing tools, they go to client meetings and talk nonsenses. Don't let yourself be con by the outside all of the biggest clients of Globant move on and all that is left is really tiny small accounts, big clients notice the are been rip off sooner or later.

    Advice to Management

    Get a book and start reading it!
