    I worked at SOAProjects full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of things about the firm that is great. It has a great culture that values collaboration that truly values diversity of its employees.If an employee has an issue the company will accommodate and help them. The management respects and values each employee and give them chance to learn if it is a new area and give them proper training with the CPE credits on the new changes in the market. Also the benefits are great. I had to relocate to different country to take care of my family otherwise I would have continued with this firm for long time. I hope to come back and join with SOAProjects in the near future.

    Cons

    I didn't see there were any cons

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for being supportive all the time

    Pros

    Our management understands the Company’s success is its employees. The management office doors are always open and they make it a priority to listen to individual employee needs and concerns. SOAProjects ensures that all the employees achieve excellence in every project by providing us all the tools and support we will need to meet and exceed the client expectations.

    Cons

    If employee is not performing in the first few months, please fire them, do not waste your money to try and train them for 1 year or more, they are not capable of their job

    Advice to Management

    We love you

    I have been working at SOAProjects full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for SOAProjects for 2 years and left and joined industry as a Controller. I rejoined SOAProjects 1 year ago and that is when I realized SOAProjects had the best corporate culture I had worked in my career.

    Cons

    One of the teams moved from the original business model and hired few junior staff to try a new model, management should not have given them more chance than they deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Please please do not give opportunity to people straight out of college - they lack professionalism and waste too much time talking, twiddling their thumbs, trainings and writing off hours - they have no integrity

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

    Pros

    Small company, and you get to know everyone very quickly. Team members (who are not the owners) care for each other like a family.

    Cons

    The firm is ran like a grocery store, no real investment on employees, micromanaged and no real encouragement for growth. Over promised and under delivered.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be phony and don't mislead new hires.

    Pros

    If you have the motivation to succeed and ready for real time honest feedback so you can improve, SOAProjects is a great place to work. This is my fourth year at SOAProjects and hope to continue working here for a long time, as there is no place like SOAProjects.

    Cons

    Very fast paced environment, its good to stop

    Advice to Management

    Thank you being honest and all the support

    Pros

    First, It's a small company, so you get chance to know every employee there, and they are friendly.
    Second, since the founder is Indian, so you get chance to know the India's culture and cuisine.

    Cons

    They emphases on manual instead of system or software.

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

    Pros

    Employees have flexible work schedules if not at a client site, most employees in our group worked well together, there is very little overtime required

    Cons

    Partners/Managers need management training, too many managers without prior experience or knowledge with how to professionally deal with others, how to motivate, how to professionally communicate.

    Advice to Management

    Partners and Managers need management training, time tracking is too difficult and time consuming, employees should get the same treatment regardless of what group they work in.

    Management recognizes individual achievements. They dont need to wait for the next evaluation if they believe that a professional needs to be recognized👌

    Cons

    No direct deposit facility for payroll. You have to go to the office every payday to pick up your check or option to mail 😒

    Advice to Management
