    I have been working at Santex Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very nice company culture, which is a combined result of its Vision and the great people working there. Also, you will find highly skilled colleagues and seasoned developers.

    Cons

    Hard to find out but give me more time and maybe I can fill this out.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to have a strategy against early turnover.

    I worked at Santex Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people work for this company. Some travel may be involved to Argentina. You will meet people from another culture who speak spanish.

    Cons

    The future of this company is unknown, it was in what seemed to be rapid growth but all of the sudden everything just fell apart. Many offices around Latin America were closed down and the 4 employees who worked in San Diego were downsized to 2. I left the company because I could not longer take it. After working so long there and putting up with the owner's disrespect I decided to leave. I don't say this as a disgruntled employee but to warn those who don't really know about this company. Management has repeatedly talked to the owner regarding his temper and attitude toward his employees but he is the owner and felt he was entitled to mistreat his employees. If something goes wrong, the owner will find someone to blame. As long as if you don't deal much with the owner you will be ok but when you have to deal with him make sure you walk on water otherwise you will hear yelling and even some cursing. I've seen many great people come and go. Employees from Spain, partners from Brazil, Germany, Peru all have left the company many even told the owner they were leaving because how he treated them.

    Advice to Management

    The day you can learn to respect your employees and treat them as human beings maybe you can see your company grow as it was at one time but in the mean time people will continue to leave your company. There will always be some who will stay your attitude will scare most away.

    Dear Former Employee,

    I decided to answer your post personally, as I see this is more of a “personal” message directed to me as the CEO of the company, than anything else. Why did you opt to post... More

    I worked at Santex Group full-time

    Pros

    Basically if you come in with a very optimistic, hard working attitude you will have a great experience. The ability to excel is held by each individual and the work that is put in. The internal company culture is very strong, and built upon the idea of empowering each other.

    Cons

    It's important to arrive to the company with a fairly solid technical understanding of software and web apps. Not sure if that is a con necessarily, but something that is important for a new individual to be certain of.

    Advice to Management

    Same that would go with any company. Retaining knowledgeable senior employees is extremely important to maintain processes and provide ongoing professional interactions with clients.

    I have been working at Santex Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great collaborative environment, no bureaucracy to speak of, you can have direct access to anyone in the company from top to bottom. Great opportunities to work with people located all throughout the world. Relaxed atmosphere and amazing smart and kind people. Organization has grown by leaps and bounds in the last few years.

    Cons

    Roles and responsibilities can get muddled and overlap. Communication can get convoluted at times and the telephone game might ensue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep clear lines of communication and better definition of responsibilities, otherwise keep up the good work.


  5. "Great opportunity for getting your foot into the web agency world, but limited opportunity for long term growth"

    Pros

    The atmosphere is very non-political and atypical of most corporate companies in the fact that employees are treated as equals without the 'big wig' corporate heads putting their feet up on the desk.

    Cons

    The long term career opportunity is limited due to the fact that salaries top out at a very low range compared to similar companies. Nobody every made anywhere near a 6 figure salary at this company that I know of, and unless you were part owner it would never happen.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time in the hiring process to choose employees that may require a higher salary, but will do a better job and stay with the company for a long term. No employee of the company currently has been employed with Santex longer than 5 years. This is a company that is over a decade old.
