    Thank you for taking time to review Softway! It’s an affirmation that are values are being imbibed. The cafeteria for sure is on our list of things we want to get done and hopefully should have that soon. Thank you for sharing the parking concern. We will definitely have that considered.

    I have been working at Softway full-time

    Pros

    An ideal company for anyone to climb up the ladder in their career given the plethora of services that Softway has to offer: Coding, Testing, SEO, Internet Marketing, Design, 3D to name a few. Respect the freedom that the employees are given to explore on any of the above services and also to switch between them which many market players fail to do so in the current era. The company has been doing significant changes...

    Cons

    Replacement for experienced employees is a bit slow ; Promotions needs to be done frequently as the employees still have outdated Job titles. Salary structure and hikes needs to be standardized and match industry standards to avoid attrition which is a common industry pitfall.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the momentum of bringing in significant changes to make an employees' life at Softway better . The shift in focus of flexible management, not micro-management (in my experience), is encouraging growth and trust amongst the employees.
