    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Saama Technologies

    Pros

    The company has some good people who want to do good work and mean well.

    Cons

    The CEO doesn't inspire confidence in his judgment or knowledge. Also, his choices of leadership are the people he's known the longest, though they have proved not to be a good fit. The company is run much like a mom-and-pop shop.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the senior management levels who aren't good at what they do or don't know what they're doing.

    Has so far been a good experience with Saama technologies. There is good work life balance and opportunities provided based on the employees interest. Once the employee proves the capabilities in the first assignment, they are provided ample opportunities.

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

    Pros

    Great projects across several verticals. Solutions are specific to a target industry and accelerate implementation based on pre-built technology. Lots of opportunity to learn different skills in a hot industry (big data, data science, visual analytics, business consulting). Good sense of direction in attempting to disrupt and differentiate in the typical IT Staff Augmentation/Systems Integration marketplace.... Competitive compensation for experienced hires. Company culture is friendly and open. Paid full compensation/benefits while on bench.

    Cons

    The technology is still maturing. Has come a long way, but still needs more customer adoption. The general range of employee talent is moderate compared to exceptional talent that is usually found in the valley. Sometimes there is a lack of direction (e.g. important strategy decisions are made based on limited market and industry comprehension with limited improvements on capabilities to tackle strategic direction).... The company is mainly comprised of Indian professionals and this results in specific cultural differences that takes getting used to. Just as other consulting firms, you have to be proactive in finding assignments in order to avoid extended periods of bench time (which could lead to decline in job-security).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the tenacity to disrupt marketplace, drive adoption of solutions, and actively hire exceptional/experienced talent. Engage consultants more to place them in active projects.
