    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Pointmarc full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Activities & HR perks (Happy Hours, Waffles, Snacks) - Lots of young and excited people at lower level, great place to make friends - Many technical folks who are very skilled and willing to teach

    Cons

    Manager level and above gets weird, bosses pretend to be your friends but aren't. Select few upper level folks who are close and promote one another, job prospects are slim if you're outside that circle. The most talented people leave for client-side jobs @ more established companies that are stable and higher paying.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a clear promotion schedule/plan that encourages ambitious entry level workers to stay around. Stop promoting friends, provide more regimented learning/skill-building opportunities.

    I have been working at Pointmarc full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Hands down some of the smartest people I've ever worked with. Everybody is nice with the exception of only a few. It's really great to work at a place you know so many people care.

    Cons

    I think some people need to be let go. I can only think of a few jerks but there are others who make it harder for us to work because we have to pick up for their weaknesses.

    Advice to Management

    I trust the leadership team but please make the harder decisions faster.

      I worked at Pointmarc full-time

      Pros

      There are amazingly talented and smart people here. And most genuinely care about you as a person. You can learn so much from the people around you and not just the technical day-to-day aspects of your job, but you can learn the soft skills too.

      Cons

      Reward your high performers and give them the attention they deserve.

      Perks were great - free food, alcohol, dress code, etc...

      Cons

      They hire young because they're cheap. You'll hear "start-up" environment but really everyone is childish, everyone from the analysts to the managers. Most of the managers are there because of their relationship with senior management, not because they earned it or people persons. It's a complete joke, no such thing as upward mobility. Most of the reviews have either been left at HR or some kid who just got their...

      I worked at Pointmarc

      Pros

      Good people to work with. Nice customer challenges to keep you pushing yourself.

      Cons

      Management was not capable of leading the team. They were more concerned with their own pockets being lined.

      Advice to Management

      Learn to step aside. Learn to reward your team for their hard work which kept the company's doors open.
