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

    Pros

    State of the art technology company; small company and get to do lot of things; learned a lot; excellent people and excellent management

    Cons

    Demanding customers; continuous development due to new customers; high pressure

    Advice to Management

    The products could be expanded to other vertical segments. The interviews are very hard and it is not easy for people to get in. Lower the standards, hire, and train them rather than looking for people that meets your high standards

    Pros

    Company has a great product and a leader in the space with strong partners. My direct manager was a great mentor and my colleagues were more of a team

    Cons

    Deals can take a long time to close with a long sales cycle due to many clients in public sector.

    I worked at Key Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had a great experience during my tenure at KSI. I learned a lot about technology. KSI's eprotocol suite is enterprise level so I was able to learn how the latest techs work. I was also able to take on more responsibility and gain more experience. eProtocol is a well built application so demonstrating it to customers builds your confidence - customer love it! The company is smaller so it is very close knit. I felt management was approachable and valued my feedback. I appreciate their efforts to make KSI a great place to work. They had snacks, a new office, and solid benefits.

    Cons

    I think the biggest challenge of working here was managing the customer's expectation. The customers would buy the tool and then expect it to be installed and up and running instantly - similar to installing Microsoft office - when implementations could take longer because of their requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to innovate and keep eprotocol as the best solution in the business.

    Pros

    People are nice; management is honest and very transparent Excellent software products in Research administartion and compliance and a leader

    Cons

    Due to the market they serve (regulatory and compliance), quality and attention to details is critical. Tough interview process to get into the company and nor for average person.

    Advice to Management

    You hired some people quickly in 2014 due to growth and in my opinion, they did lot of damage with their limited knowledge and experience in this filed. Yiu shoukd continue your tough recruitment process.

    This company will take advantage of employee than give any helping hand.

    Cons

    Never Pays Salary in time.
    Case has been filed against this employer.
    No one speaks to you if you have any concern.
    You have to followup for running the payroll as well.

    Please respect employees hard work and pay their salaries. I'm sure very soon you will realize.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Key Solutions full-time

    Pros

    The SaaS products they produce are very useful. Also, the senior managers have an excellent person-to-person managerial style.

    Cons

    Senior management is disorganized and the day-to-day work of the few employees is grossly mismanaged. The talents and efforts of excellent employees wind up being wasted, and they tend to quickly find new positions and quit.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to learn to delegate, hiring more project managers and empowering them to streamline projects and production. They also need to rein in the developers in India, too many of whom are simply not competent and who, in any case, do not follow instructions. Last but not least, they must stop low-balling talented people.

    Key Solutions is a great place to work. Not only do you get to learn more and advance your skills, along with the right industry knowledge and exposure, but also experience a healthy work culture. My experience at Key Solutions has been great. I had the opportunity to work with an amazing and able team. My seniors were equally dedicated to the company's as well as persona's growth.

    Cons

    Apart form the heck tick process of keeping up with industry updates, its hard to list any.
