    I worked at SilverTech full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Honestly not much, They have not great Health Insurance, but it's there. Every other Thursday the company gathers and drinks beer

    Cons

    Absolutely no work life balance. During my time there employees were expected to put in over 10 hour days and come in during the weekend to finish whatever work needs to be done, and the most you get is maybe food. Very few QA staff that are way too overworked to get things done. They take advantage of recent grads to get really cheap labor. No one knows what's going on. Projects are not well defined in the least. spec documents are vague and often unfinished. Source control is an afterthought - sneaker net was used on occasion. Super minor, but they have arcade machines throughout the building that were touted as a cool cultural thing, but during my time there I never saw turned on. Training is practically non-existent. The pay is really low, and they use their really bad "benefits" package as an excuse. Management are an echo chamber and don't listen to the people who are boots on the ground.

    Pros

    Great people, amazing facility, extremely fun culture with many perks, room for career growth, a variety of exciting work projects... I can't say enough nice things about SilverTech. I've worked for large corporations and small start-ups and SilverTech has been my favorite place so far.

    Cons

    Pros

    Solid company that cares about its crew, its clients and the community.

    Cons

    If there is a con here, its the bashing on this website. I can't understand how someone could work here for "shy of 3 years" and be miserable. After all, I don't see anyone being forced to show up each and every day. Something must be wrong with yourself and your ability to obtain employment elsewhere if you had to stick though the "abysmal place" for that long. Stop with the grudge and move on.

    I worked at SilverTech full-time

    Pros

    Nothing positive about this company other than its a "positively abysmal" place to be. I realized shy of 3 years how toxic, unprofessional, and it was, and just how miserable everyone is there and was able to get myself out.

    Cons

    The owner is a know-nothing clown. He *THINKS* he knows a lot, which is hilarious—he talks so much and says NOTHING. Almost the entire "drone" staff say BS things like "Thats agency life" or "digital lifecycle" when in fact NO ONE there has been at a real agency or could even explain what a lifecycle is, or why focusing on a lifecycle is a huge mistake. They don't work with the customers' customers—everything they do is rushed, last minute, ill planned (if planned at all). They only know what they know, which only has a place in the early 2000s. The strategy team is a complete joke. The focus on deliverables, and reports that tell us nothing rather than working in a way that moves work forward. So much waisted time in poor ever-changing processes that make everyone chase their tail. Clients have a super short shelf-life, as do the employees (historically over 30% attrition which is very his for this industry). They can't keep any talent because EVERYONE hates working there. And everyone hates Nick. He's is a poor excuse for a human, and anything but a leader. If you actually like working there, you clearly have no idea what the real agency world is like and you are a scared "yes person" who does whatever they need to survive. This place will make you feel like you are decaying inside.

    I have been working at SilverTech

    Pros

    Great clients and great group of people are here. Let me bring a bit of truth to what I have seen here.... Anyone that has ever run a business or been part of an organization long enough can quickly read between the lines and know the intentions of leadership. This company buys lunches 4-6 times a month. Staff wanted better coffee, they invested in it... They provide full benefits to every staff member AND their families. FULL, as in zero paid out by staff. They take their entire company away for a weekend as part of the annual holiday party. They allow management to have team outings, golf events, beer over code reviews, etc. The amount donated to the community and non profits is amazing....possibly overkill. ALL OF THAT costs money and could VERY easily be in the pockets of the leadership team. HR is constantly working to better the organization. Last year had some ups and downs but like previous reviews, the drama is finally gone. The company is so damn passionate about clients and their crew that it really makes it a great place for a career. Lets now talk about the focus. The focus is indeed to grow... but I personally see this as a massive win. Without growth I would be stuck in the same position, doing the same things. Why would I want that? Looking forward to some upcoming trainings and some of the larger projects coming in the door to better my personal skills. Knowing how other agencies operate, this is indeed agency life.... but this company works harder at listening to the staff and making things happen then most I have ever seen!

    Cons

    It is again, an agency. Not recommended for those not in the know of what that means. They are hell bent on hitting deadlines and doing what is right by the customer so it can impact your personal time. Generally this is made up on a personal level but it does have an effect. Leadership is growing and maturing still. The building can be difficult at times as people are spread across three floors and the 3rd floor is noisy, hard to concentrate, etc. While beautiful and "cool", it does make things a bit harder. Happy to see new "quiet" spaces being developed.

    I have been working at SilverTech full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I feel like I landed here at the right time. I came from another agency where things were rough. The crew, as the management team likes to call us, works well together. The benefits are pretty good. Being younger and healthy, I don't get to use them that often. I enjoy the weekly firesides and I really like the frequent updates. It is nice to hear from management about what is going on in other areas of the business. The annual holiday party is a tradition that I understand goes on every year. I am looking forward to attending my first one later this year.

    Cons

    I can't really think of many cons. I have read some of the reviews here and I don't understand how people are forced to "stay here". If you're unhappy, no one keeps you here. Feel free to leave. I left my old employer and came here. No one is forcing someone to continue to be employed here.
