    I worked at Redknee full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of talented and excellent people there who were a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance. Management throws employees under the bus to cover their own mistakes. There are always huge fires to put out because of under staffing.

    Advice to Management

    Its difficult to advise that one should deal with integrity, honesty and be willing to follow the same team spirit that they expect from others but not themselves.

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

    Pros

    Moderate to good technology and an interesting company size. It is also good you get exposure to customers in all over the world. Though that depends on the role.

    Cons

    There's a culture of dog eat dog, very bad and sickening office politics. I saw some good people being bullied and traumatized simply because they were too competent and trying to actually help their customers!

    Advice to Management

    Get the whole company in an accelerated soft-skills training

    Pros

    Company has lots of smart people that create very creative and innovative telcos solutions.
    Resilience is the word that I would use to describe this company.

    Cons

    Too bad company decided to close down an entire R&D department last year and by doing so completed transition of every product development to multiple outsourcing centres across the globe.

    Advice to Management

    Come down to its people and invest in a long term vision.

    I have been working at Redknee full-time

    Pros

    You will never get bore of doing repetitive work. Always on toes and challenges up for you. You actually feel that you are contributing to the success of the company.

    Cons

    Policies are not very friendly any more, budget constraints are killing the morale and lay-offs too. Forgetting the hard and best work put the employees for all these years and making Redknee The Redknee which has acquired big part of NSN.

    Advice to Management

    Policy should be employee friendly as we are moving away from that. All the hard and extra hours of work put by employee gets use to get compensated by providing the flexibility in working hours or whatever employee needs the most after he proven himself. Delaying and hardening of employee friendly practices and policies will have cascade effects not only on actual productivity but the edge which he use to deliver while highly motivated. I am hopeful situation is continuously monitored by high management before its too late.

    I have been working at Redknee full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will be given the opportunity to go from design, development to operational support. You will be given the tools but you have to dig in deep yourself to solve problems and do them quickly. Immediate managers and team leads are great, will support you genuinely. Everyone around you is very busy, so if you have specific questions you'll get help. You will be recognized for the good work you do. Once you are accustomed to the team you have good flexibility in terms of work/life balance.

    Cons

    There used to be a major disconnect between the upper and Immediate managers, the middle management was chaotic, and have heard of many false promises. It seems to have gotten better over the last year but I'm still not confident about them. The ramp-up time is short and not everyone has the time to help, which is sometimes stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management seem to be doing better job over the past year so I would encourage to keep going in right direction.
