      Leaving SOTI is the most positive thing you can do. You fired and lost the best Talents!!

      Pros

      Cool and growing industry to work in. Lots of growth and potential to work on exciting projects

      Cons

      Terrible leadership - in my time there the company was a ship without a strong captain. It all starts from the top and when you have a leader that tries to micromanage nothing really does get done. Lack of professionalism - the biggest gripe with SOTI is that many times I saw a complete disrespect of employees and professionalism. For example, on more than one occasion I've seen a manager yell at their subordinate...

      Advice to Management

      I'm sure management has changed since I worked there in 2013. If it hasn't I would say don't waste your time. If it has and gotten better than I wish you luck!

        I worked at SOTI full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        Networking for a new job and No accountability. There is a lot of milk and cream for your coffee in the fridge.

        Cons

        Employees are leaving faster than they can hire. (Approx 4-6 a week). In a recent announcement the CEO clearly stated he will never sell, he will never ask for VC funding or ever go public. In the same announcement he introduced employee stocks. If you want money, I guess that's where you go to get it. Ask your employees. If SOTI is accelerating down, the CEO just jumped on the gas pedal.

        Advice to Management

        If there is any chance of SOTI staying afloat... Sell while you can get a little money before you put all those people out of a job.

        I worked at SOTI full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        I have nothing positive to report about working here.

        Cons

        Lack of direction and organization. Complete chaos internally with no real management structure, no job role definitions, metrics, etc. All titles are powerless unless you are the owner of the company. No ability to execute perceived job role due to lack of support internally and needing to work with equally disgruntled employees.

        Advice to Management

        Your employees are trying to make the company better. Listen to them.

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

        Pros

        The technology used for programmers is good for keeping up with industry standards. Great for new grads...1 year max (recommended). The sincere relationships you can manage to have in a high school like scenario.

        Cons

        Toxic relationships between senior staff and the rest of the teams. Poor benefits, and mediocre vacation/sick days. Every internal celebration feels like a staged media event to draw in people, so fake. Upper management sets a very negative and combative tone which is hard to ignore even if you want to.
