    Pros

    Will sponsor international students, Have some decent client projects and you will get to meet and work with talented people

    Cons

    Bad work culture. CEO is after financial gain more than any other

    Advice to Management

    Understand that your strength comes from your employees. You may benefit by cutting corners and treating your employees poorly in the short term but this will not work for the long term .

    Pros

    You can get whatever title you want, because they have no idea what they are doing, and you'll never actually be doing the work of your job title.

    Cons

    Horrible. Stay away. Indian based company where they work you to the bone, treat you horrible and have absolutely no idea what is going on. I was blackmailed by my boss on several occasions, the vendor tried to hire me, and my boss lied to me, and manipulated me into telling him what was happening. After I quit, I was still getting emails for over a year asking me to submit my time sheet for that week, and also have recruiters still calling me to this day (over two years later) trying to hire me for the same position. Hands down worst company out there.

    Pros

    Some individually competent and thoughtful people. If you're considering Ramp, take care to notice the difference in reviews between the Bellevue/Redmond office and the offshore India offices.

    Cons

    A critical review of a company is meant to help you make a more informed decision and hopefully not make the same mistake as the person that’s already been there. I've been there.

    The negative environment and constant acceptance of mediocrity will wear on you and wear you down. You can try hard, and even come in thinking you can make a difference...but you'll soon realize that upper management barely has a handle on their own company. They articulate no company vision at all and seem more than happy with the bottom of the barrel projects, often taking on free work in the hopes it will lead to paid work later...it won't, it doesn't.

    There are also issues with integrity and the way some people are treated. Almost everyone that's there would rather be someplace else. Employees are always talking about leaving, about the bad management and weak future...that all creates complacency and a general "who cares" attitude. As I mentioned earlier, it will wear you down.

    Ramp is part of a larger company that's based offshore in India. The CEO, who runs all three companies, is pretty much nonexistent at Ramp. You could go months without even seeing him in the office.

    If you're straight out of school with no prior job experience you might find some value here...maybe...but I would encourage even you to look elsewhere first.

    Trust me when I say this...Just Say No...move on to something else and you'll be much happier in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Stop fooling yourselves. Without any real leadership or any company vision or direction, this will always be a company barely hanging on and scrounging for any clients they can get.

    I worked at Ramp Technology (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ramp had gone thru a very large downsizing before I joined, but the team that was left was very strong and really got that they were in rebuilding mode. Very realistic in the way they approached running lean and mean, and everyone pitched in together and worked well together.

    That is, until the new CEO came in, and the wheels fell completely off almost over night.

    Cons

    Since they were small, everyone had to wear multiple hats and that became difficult to do well all the time. This was before new management.

    Once new management came in, the game was changed forever. Dishonesty and mistrust ruled the day, and new management treated all employees - new and old - with disdain and a total lack of respect.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to new management is to give it up. They are dishonest to the core.

    Pros

    If they are desperate for you, they will throw everything to retain you. But don't ever trust them in paying your bonuses or future promises.

    Cons

    New management sucks. No work culture.
    Be cautious with what you sign as they can just put you in trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your words and be honest.

    Pros

    Pros:
    * Exposure to lots of projects, clients

    Cons

    Cons:
    * No time for competitive research, planning
    * Importance placed on bill-ability rather than career growth
    * Management pretty much clueless, kept is in the total dark
    * Dishonest management
    * Advertise there are 70 employees, there are more like 4

    Advice to Management

    Employees can take bad news. Better to keep your employees informed than to lie to them. It's a small town - not a good idea to burn bridges in this industry.

    Pros

    - Good peers if you like working with a senior bench
    - Nice People overall, and good social atmosphere and professional approach

    Cons

    - Not enough choices
    - Sinking ability to get new business
    - Not the company it once was a couple years ago

    Advice to Management

    - Ramp, if it is to survive, needs to revitalize thier sales and engagement strategy. Also, they used to paint the company as a real consulting concen but were more along the vien of filling the needs of CSG's.

    Pros

    They process green card in a relative short time span.

    Cons

    They are a small company with not too many projects, their recruiters are useless when it's time for you to find a new project which doesn't surprise me since they don't speak English very well. Benefits are also really bad, health insurance premiums are very high if you have a family.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the skills of your recruiters and get more projects.
