    Pros

    Small company with a fun & energetic culture. Great people. Very entrepreneurial. Lots of QoL benefits. Flexibility, vacation, game room.

    Cons

    Jersey City. Not great for Long Islanders.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on R&D. Offshore Dev isn't worth the hassle. Hire more folks onshore.

    Pros

    Unique technology in a niche space of the financial industry. Good ability to sell enterprise software into major financial firms with significant spend ability. Great people, one of the best assets of the firm are the product managers and the executives. Really enjoyable working environment.

    Cons

    From a sales perspective you need to be comfortable selling into a competitive market and understand how to leverage smart people to sell. If you can do this you'll be fine. Don't think this is a transaction sale

    I have been working at Scivantage

    Pros

    Lots of good people, passionate about their jobs. Good products, good client base. New management team is making some changes, which some don't like, but overall, things that needed to be done. Things are trending up.

    Cons

    Growing pains have caused some problems. Needs more structure.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the hard work! Keep motivating your employees

    I have been working at Scivantage full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Startup atmosphere (not for everyone). I think that's the source for lots of negative reviews. Yes, there's lots of work (sometimes hectic and unplanned), but there is also lots of flexibility. Scivantage allows work from home for extended time (even from other countries at times). Staff is friendly and there's lots of energy and friendliness. Lots of young talent and things to learn. There's daily fruit, soft... drinks, pool, table tennis, foosball.

    Cons

    Fast paced growth caused a lot of rash decisions to be made early on. This debt needs to be addressed and resolved to ensure the further growth can be supported. There's a lot of restructure in upper management ranks recently as the company crosses from small to medium size. This brought on a lot of doubt, angst and fear in the lower ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more to lower ranks about plans not to lose talent during the turbulent times of re-structuring and reorg.

    Pros

    It is easy to get your voice heard at this small firm.

Management does not micromanage and give employees freedom to contribute their ideas and creativity to the product and process. You have the opportunity to gain a lot of experience at Scivantage.

    Salaries are on the lower end of the average.
