    I have been working at Saama Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This place used to operate more like startup with somewhat of a lack of structure but there was good motivation and opportunities to contribute and work hard, and also feel you had your hand in the company having success. This has broken down very much. Current Pro - Usually free lunch 1-2 days a week, Sometimes snacks are there too. Compensation is not so high but you get paid on time and the check does not bounce...

    Cons

    Total breakdown of trust. Employees are being monitored like crazy. There is such emphasis on documenting and monitoring your work that it makes it harder to get the actual work done. Managers are rude and find a way to spin things into writing that only reflects a way to make them looking good. There were new policies put into place meant to speed up the time that a project takes and make the tasks more better documented...

    I worked at Saama Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There were some great people Pay was decent When funding is there, morale is great and there are lots of benefits (snacks, happy hours)

    Cons

    Awful management. One person asked me to move to Arizona No projects, lots of "proof of concept" work in hopes of getting a client Constant stress about job security. I watched as waves of people were laid off No opportunity to build skills, because projects were hard to come by When the funding starts to disappear, so does morale

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Find the main ground of you not able to sell the company. Allow us to get absorbed within the clients, why screwing up our career. Revisit the mid level jokers.
