    I have been working at Saama Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have absolutely loved being a part of Saama team over the course of the last year. I was made to feel welcome from the very start and the staff truly cares about the work they are doing. Members of the leadership team have provided positive feedback on my performance and have supported me in my professional growth. The fast paced environment ensures that I am constantly challenged.

    Cons

    There has been some turnover, but it is clear why those people are gone and why the remaining talent is still here. Top talent is rewarded, acknowledged and promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! Leadership team has to make tough decisions and trade-offs sometimes. A clear vision with transparency as to why decisions are being made has made it easy for us to follow with conviction and trust.

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

    Pros

    There is no shortage of opportunity at Saama with a typical assignment lasting 2-3 years. Those located in Bay area don't move around to other places. Only new accounts after 2-3 years.

    Cons

    If you are seeking a nine to five job, this is not the place for you. Fast paced in service of their client. This is not necessarily a "con" per se - just something to consider when seeking employment. Be prepared to work and be rewarded

    Advice to Management

    Communication between the management can be improved and Better benefits for your employees.

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

    Pros

    Good place to start your IT career with. Can get opportunities to work with various technologies. Can't complaint about the benefits. Protective employer and I love the immigration lawyer they have, as there are many Indian, Asian and other immigrants working in the company. Appreciates an employee well when he/she shows good appetite towards their job.

    Cons

    Horrible top management. They do not care about the employee when it comes to job vs personal interest of the employee. Some Managers care about their employees but most of them care only when the employee gets to a drowning situation. I have seen times where Managers shout at their employees like they were slaves. Some are not protective of their employees at client locations.
    Salaries do not have standards and HR gives a vague explanation when asked for why this happens. Hard growth unless you burn yourself and have a worst work-life balance. Its is OK if you do your 9-5 job or try more than that. No bonus whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Get better Managers and stop local politics. Need to have better relations with clients.
