    I have been working at Netcentric full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Location: Timpuri Noi, away from Pipera, in a modern office building. Work from home policy: unlimited, and most people use common sense and do not abuse it, which makes for a very relaxed work environment External events, trips, working from other offices, various fun events. Apple workstations, standing desks, great conferencing systems. Good communication and teamwork - most of the time. Mico bonus system - bonus.ly,...

    Cons

    Has been bought by an Indian company and all that it implies: more and more Indian colleagues, badly trained, hard to work with. Moving slowly towards an outsourcing mentality (customer interviews at the lowest level, no trust, no company reputation). Low salaries on the Romanian market. Holacracy - sure, it can work, but faced with a 'customer is king' attitude, it leaves no room for actual voices to be heard. Internal...

    Advice to Management

    Don't sell this company for something else than it is - you are an outsourcing company, you treat employees like resources, you have strong ties to India and people tend to avoid this, but wrap it nicely with events, fun, and games, to make it seems something that it no longer is. Value your people and their opinions, struggle to find them positions that fit their skills, and remember that the little things count. Such...

    I have been working at Netcentric full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Receptive to suggestions, a good employee can push to change workflows with enough effort, new technologies

    Cons

    Mostly no management. As an employee you work directly with the client, making the workload pile up for some people and be almost inexistent for others. Having to book time for each task or small little thing you're working on.

    Advice to Management

    Be more present in interactions between the client and the NC employee

    I have been working at Netcentric full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great environment, flexible hours and work from home. They also try to work with the last frontend technologies

    Cons

    The CMS that they use to develop websites is a little bit cumbersome to work with. Also salaries are 15% below market average.

    Pros

    I felt from the beginning that Netcentric is the place to be and looking back I see that I was right. Holacracy provides the framework for autonomy, flexibility, empowerment, which are among the main things I am looking for when it comes to a job. I appreciate the work-life balance and the benefits, the fact that it is the environment that enables you to grow and also fully enjoy the people around me. Working in a multicultural...

    Cons

    For sure no company is flawless, but in my opinion, there are no things actually worth mentioning as a con. The flaws are, for sure, in the eye of the beholder

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, trusting and empowering people!

    Pros

    Apple hardware, beautiful offices, good benefits, you feel part of a great adventure. Big clients with really interesting and complex AMC integration projects. If you have a good idea, the company will support you - No hierarchical barriers, you can talk to everyone, on all levels... Complete transparency on the company goals and strategy. Apart form the big surprise, Netcentric was recently bought by Cognizant, so far...

    Cons

    Beginning is hard, adapting to holacracy with so many high level, inspiring and dynamic people can be somewhat destabilizing, but with proactivity and the right level of motivation, you can make your space and really feel part of the success story. Career path and advancement system is weak, but under review

    Advice to Management

    Really hope you guys are here to stay as you really are the soul, driving force and an inspiration to us all. The badge system... not so good. (had to be said) - Talent Management is a profession and must be left to professionals, not colleagues, more investment needed here.
