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

    Pros

    * Latest Apple Equipment * Multicultural Team * Flexible Working Hours * 30 days paid vacation * Working from home is usually possible * Great offices.

    Cons

    The company has a really low technical ceiling for developers. After a short while, everything seems repetitive, and personal growth on a technical level stagnates completely. On the other hand, the consulting skills ceiling is sky high, so developers who want to steer into the business consulting world have a great opportunity here. Holacracy is used as a false promise of a flat hierarchy and individual empowerment....

    Advice to Management

    It's still not too late to turn the ship around. The current mindset where revenue and growth are the sole motivation for the company's existence is flawed. Ramp up salaries, stop insane growth, rethink the compensation system and find a way to motivate the workforce beyond company's revenue. Listen to the employees. All the answers are there.

    Pros

    - Latest Apple equipment - International team - Working from home is usually not a problem - Flexible work hours

    Cons

    Everything seems to point that the previous CEO was the one who knew what Holacracy meant. The current implementation of the hierarchy is like most other companies. The company has around 15 founders which are the only people that actually matter and really have decision power, the rest of the people seem disposable. They keep repeating that “everyone has a voice” which is true, but the only voices that are heard are...

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts! As you know, Netcentric is run and powered by Holacracy. It is not the typical organisational structure and it might not be for everyone, so it takes time to learn it and own it for yourself. But, once you do, it opens up new opportunities to ...

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

    Pros

    - Great colleagues - Apple exclusive equipment - Atlassian toolkit - Nice working environment, clean table policies, move around the office as you wish - Fully stocked kitchen, lot’s of coffee, kicker tables, kitchen talks and fun - Enterprise level projects and customers, big chance to learn about processes and business behind it - Many company events (yearly Summit event, Ski events, Summer events etc) - Flexible...

    Cons

    - Salaries are low for every market (be it Spain, Germany, Swiss) compared to the current market state. - A company uses AEM for everything, even if it doesn't work properly (although company focus is on Enterprise Content Management). Sometimes it's a good thing, sometimes very bad depends on what you expect. - Project managers in some projects are usually not tech savvy and have no idea or overview what's going on...

    Advice to Management

    - The company grows too fast. Slow down hiring, look into the current talent pool, a lot of people deserve an "upgrade". Instead of hiring more senior people, shift around the current talents, you will get much better results and much more investment from the actual employees (this is for technical employees, cannot rate the consultancy/management). Everyone wants to contribute, but not many want to because they don't...

    I worked at Netcentric full-time

    Pros

    - nice people - amazing events - great offices

    Cons

    - low salary - management praises transparency but there is none - management is too far away from daily business - not a lot of work in projects, "sitting on the bench"

    Advice to Management

    - value your employees more - listen to everyone - live Holocracy - not only on paper

    I worked at Netcentric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Nice office - Apple work equipment - Free food and drinks - Young and international work environment - Lots of opportunities if you are pro active - 30 free days holidays.

    Cons

    - Benefits are slowly fading away (sailing, conferences, ...). - There are talented people, but they all work in isolated projects. At some point you won't learn that much anymore, because you never work with each other. - The company was growing super fast, as a result that the bosses lost sight of who is really important for the company and who's not. - If you don't watch yourself you will work a lot of hours. -...
