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

    Pros

    You learn a lot there.

    Cons

    Being a contractor, you need to stick to outdated policies implemented by the clients.
    The terms of your work situation are not discussed with you, you have no saying on hours you'll like to work or even if you prefer to work from home, mostly because they will try to comply with every whim the client wants as long they keep a project.
    They will charge the client a lot for you and only pay you a very little percentage of that.

    Advice to Management

    Look out more for your employees, while it is understandable that you don't want to loose business with your major client, you certainly don't want to loose your employees every time they get a better offer.

    I have been working at Softtek full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relocation assistance
    Full time positions
    Partial Benefits (PTOs, Health Insurance, 401(k) No match, Basic Dental & Vision coverage)
    Access to online training (Skillsoft and Softtek University)
    Friendly environment

    Cons

    They don't provide Health Insurance for your family
    There is no match for 401(k)
    The performance review is not tied to a promotion or salary increase even if your performance was outstanding
    If your project ends you will be at the bench and if they don't find a new project soon, you might be be laid off.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Softek is their commitment to their customers. It is refreshing to see a company so thoroughly dedicated to meeting and exceeding the customer's expectations.

    Cons

    As Softek is based in Mexico, and I was recruited/employed in Iowa, there wasn't a strong sense of being "connected" to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to help your employees feel like they are a part of the larger organization.

    Pros

    +experience you get dealing with a demanding USA based customer
    +the off-shore model allows to gain experience dealing with local users and interacting with remote co-workers
    +many young employees, camadery among coworkers
    +the company has been growing, so more projects are brought inm but not sure you can jump between sites easily

    Cons

    +you are assigned to projects, you could fall in a not so appealing assignation, I have the impression we have few customers, if a project is canceled, you might be put in the pool for a bit
    +I don't think you'll be able to retire from this company
    +I think is hard to jump to a management position

    Advice to Management

    i would like to hear we have more US based customers

    Pros

    opportunity to work with word class, multinational customers, work across cultural borders. the work can be fast paced. I enjoy working with the people at Softtek.

    Cons

    not many opportunities to advance, when working on a client site. (in fact, i dont see a lot of movement at the GDCs). you can be forgotten about when you work on a customer site, sometimes you feel more like an employee of the customer than an employee of Softtek. There are not a lot of benefits working at Softtek, a paycheck and medical is about all there is.

    Advice to Management

    I dont have a lot of bad feelings to Senior Management, I don't interface with them too them too much. They are able to snag the customers and have them re-sign the contract renewals. So that is good.
