    I have been working at NeoFirma full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lean staffing structure affords ample opportunities for "wearing many hats” - great for professional growth

    Company has solid customer base, great at making continuous product improvements based on feedback

    Fantastic work/life balance; felt very supported in terms of my growing family and personal commitments

    CEO/senior management very involved, most with diverse and relevant backgrounds in software, oil and gas and small business management

    Cons

    Managing timelines can be a challenge while juggling custom enhancement requests with overall product roadmap

    Current market conditions are volatile, and budget cuts at E&P companies can complicate sales cycles

    Advice to Management

    Technology and strategy are solid - as client and investor base continue to expand, hang on to values and culture that set company apart. Continue to hire knowledgable people who value being part of a growing organization and who want to grow along with it.


  2. "High Expectations.... Huge Failures"

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at NeoFirma as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Difficult to list pros. I came in from a large company and no real comradere amongst staff. Team players within the few team members. Foreigners welcome, especially if you need help with citizenship, or other issues pertaining to this. No room for advancement in any aspect. No team of developers, project managers, engineers, human resources in office. Investors run the company, with a talking head in and out of office on "business trips" yet no new clients added in years.

    Cons

    Clients expect what they've been promised, can't always deliver due to budget issues. Current employees aren't well trained. Good company if the what's promised could be delivered. Be prepared to work over stated hours at times without compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Educate yourself in latest technology. Expectations of staff unreasonable on shoe string budget. Listed to your staff, don't assume when you don't understand the process.

    I worked at NeoFirma full-time

    Pros

    Really enjoyed working here. The company itself has been around for a while but no one has really heard of it. Cool people and cool environment.

    Cons

    Market share, not really well known in the industry. Needs more exposure.

    Advice to Management

    Get more clients/investors, great vision, just lacking in people to get it done.

    I have been working at NeoFirma full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to wear different hats, have a say in the product development and evolution, experience working with latest generation technology stack for state of the art SaaS. Good culture to match employee career goals with company needs. Options in company for every employee is good way to make employees feel part of the bigger objectives and goals.

    Cons

    Clients expect a lot and there is not always enough time to accomplish everything.

    Advice to Management

    As the company continues to grow and add clients, continue to engage the team in the company direction and higher level decision making as has been done in the past

    Pros

    NeoFirma offers a flexible work environment and a supportive staff. The team works together well and provides opportunities for staff to improve their knowledge of the data, development, and oil and gas industries. The company is positioned well to withstand market swings and has clearly defined goals that have the potential to exponentially increase market share.

    Cons

    This isn't really a con, but rather the nature of oil and gas. Every company in the industry has specific data needs and configurations. If you aren't flexible with your expectations for product and profession, you will not be successful. Supporting the client is the top priority.

    Advice to Management

    A number of pending projects have the potential to increase market share. Focus on completing these items to move NeoFirma to the next level.

    Pros

    Small company with hard working individuals in a great work environment.

    Clear road map for success & continuously improving the product while retaining a strong customer base.

    Flexible work-life balance with great benefits.

    Leading web based cloud software with uncapped potential in the technology and oil gas industry.

    Cons

    The rollercoaster ride of the oil & gas industry is currently creating a very difficult market for a large number of E&P's in the market which ultimately impacts all companies involved.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strive for growth and success while maintaining a strong, driven team of individuals that create a exciting work environment to stimulate creativity and innovation in technology.

    I have been working at NeoFirma as a contractor

    Pros

    Great work culture, innovative technology, and a clear roadmap for product development. The company is well managed and has been around for several years so is established with a growing customer base.

    Cons

    There is a lot of uncertainty in the oil industry right now because of low oil prices. However, demand for technology and more efficient processes is growing, so still a good time to work in software.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to deliver relevant software products, maintain your reputation as a friendly and knowledgeable service provider, and keep your workplace culture as the company grows.
