    Pros

    On time pay and standard benefits like other comparable companies.

    Cons

    1.Bonuses plan is practically useless even though employee is on 100% billable.
    2. Annual reviews does not happen properly, managers do not have care or time in recognizing employee contributions over the year. There is no special about this organization to differentiate from other IT consulting companies. You can expect no or very basic hike that does not even match up the YoY inflation.
    3. Employee engagement is very poor due to lack of proper Sr. Management interest in the employee day to day activities, if u r on staff Aug kind of consultant there is hardly any connection to the employee. This is effecting performance review as well.
    4. Very high insurance costs and very limited plans offered.
    5. Very limited vacation plan, of course Prolifics is not special compared to others.
    6. Terrible president.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employee career growth, listen to them, clarify their concerns, make employees to gain confidence and trust Ness at the company and be connect to each employee. Pay well as per employee experience and expertise, don't be greedy. Make high priority efforts to retain talent. Retention is only possible if u pay well matching the market. Don't assume you r on par paying salarie matching market that is incorrect.

    I worked at Prolifics full-time

    Pros

    Sadly, this company is disorganized, dishonest and often abusive. More in the Cons section.

    Cons

    Immature testing teams/managers. Clients often have to escalate to get contractually guaranteed work accomplished. High level management is abusive, including HR, when addressing employees in many cases, including yelling vs discussing. Management/HR often lie leaving mid level management to figure it out for themselves to resolve issues with the client. Most resources from offshore (including those who have traveled to work onshore) fail to communicate or follow through (internally and with the client), practically running from anything that is not their core job function. If you are a professional, used to working in a professional environment, this company will disappoint and frustrate you. Little to now work life balance as resources fail to follow through properly leaving one to do it themselves. Offshore is inflexible and passive-aggressive. There is more but suffice it to say, this company is not recommended.

    Advice to Management

    If any are listening (which would be new !), look at the current structure of management relationships and integrity displayed. The clients are increasingly disappointed in the continued failure to follow through on promises. HR behavior is very anti employee. Keeping promises is not this company's strong suit.

    I worked at Prolifics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is as honest a review that anyone will read. All the other reviews look like it was made up but that's my opinion. For starters, I learned a lot while being trained properly by your immediate manager. Lots of talented people in their respective departments.
    Good tech to pick up on, but once you learn it there is not much afterwards. You kind of stay stagnant and you end up falling behind the latest and greatest technology.
    Flexibility is great as well.
    Great individuals to work with onshore.

    Cons

    All the training was out the window once the manager left. I knew something was wrong when someone who loves technology decides to leave their position after so many years. Unfortunately it seemed to be the trend at Prolifics as of recent.

    They hire based on affordability and not skill set. This is a reason why it has become a revolving door. You can't expect to keep talented staff while not matching industry standard salaries. What happens when things hit the fan and someone lacks the skill set to resolve it. You lose revenue that way.

    From what I have seen, almost all the remaining positions have been transitioned over to India. Accounting is no longer in the States. It is now operating offshore. Basically an Accounting team, reduced or completely eliminated and moved off shore. We understand it's to cut costs.

    The Marketing department was also a decent size team while there and has not been eliminated as well.

    I would not be surprised if HR is moved to offshore very soon.

    The NYC office is pretty much reduced to less than 10 with both Marketing and Accounting gone. Whoever says other wise is lying to you. I don't see the need for that office as it is just an added cost if that is what Prolifics is trying to do cut overhead.

    It's sad to see a company that used to thrive as many have said, and now it is in the state that it currently is now.

    Lots of people I know have gotten better opportunities once they leave Prolifics and it's a fact. I've been able to learn a great deal after leaving.

    Infrastructure is outdated and is need of a revamp. Without an adequate engineer to spearhead or an engineer with knowledge of what the needs are for the company,it will continue to run on outdated equipment. Off shore support is not enough.

    Benefits are not the greatest when I was there. Paying close to $500 per month on Family Medical is ridiculous. Currently I pay about half of that now.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say, it's all written in stone.
