      Pros

      I have been working for KiwiTech in the Manhattan office for over 2 years now and it has been a wonderful experience from Day 1. Here are a few of the many highlights: -Management is extremely flexible and welcomes innovation from any employee within the company: Not only is KiwiTech a trusted partner to startups but it also operates like a startup with their willingness to welcome ideas, change, and innovation at every turn and from every corner of the company. Over the past 2.5 years it is incredible to see how this company is grown by constantly trying new ideas that can benefit our company and our partners. -Consistently promotes employees from within: Throughout every level of the organization KiwiTech allows its employees to achieve career growth through promoting within. They also encourage and support employees to pivot roles within the company, as I know first hand after transitioning from a relationship manager into a Project Manager without hesitation from management. -Management and my fellow employees treat each other like a family: KiwiTech is a family run business and it is evident with the way that they treat their employees. Long after I am gone I will maintain and value the I have made at this company. I strongly recommend KiwiTech to anyone looking to be a part of the innovation space, it is an excellent place to work and grow your career.

      Chaotic, Undisciplined, and Trying to Shortcut Sucess

      Feb 5, 2021 - Senior Project Manager

      Pros

      You enjoy a flexible work environment, as your development team is largely in India and your clients may be in the US or Europe. They're not shy about traveling or spending money to close a sale.

      Cons

      The ownership group are no longer interested in the hard work needed to build another company. They struck it moderately rich with their prior firm, which they almost took public before the late 2000s economic downturn. They sold at a steep discount a few years later, but made enough money to live well and launch this company. They're trying to recapture lightning in a bottle, but they don't want to invest another 20+ years doing it. The economic conditions in India now are very different than when they launched their first company, and it's increasingly harder to run the company profitably with Indian development resources. The company name doesn't have much cachet in India, so they find themselves struggling to attract or retain the best talent. Bottom line, they have to overpay for mediocre talent that often needs to be bailed out by developers in the US or elsewhere. There's no established HR support in the American offices, so good luck with health insurance or retirement plan help. Promotions are typically title changes without additional authority, compensation, or resources. The company founders are also not great at closing deals, and they still weren't profitable by the time I left. The company was already reaching the limits of its scalability and their ability to attract more complex projects and development challenges.

      Pros

      I had a great manager, lots of autonomy. I worked remotely and had to travel a bit, so it worked out for me.

      Cons

      Hours - time difference with India team was a bit of tough one at times. Not very people centric company - very profit centric. Very large quotas and not very feasible to deliver them in short time.

      Pros

      1. Company has lots of potential for growth 2. People are willing to teach and help with your career, if you have a great attitude and can work kindly with people 3. Fast pace, but fair, need to be able to prioritize.

      Cons

      None, unless of course you are not made for working with start ups, and so cannot self-motivate and see what needs to be done. Not for everyone. If you are sharp and reasonable then you will fit in.
