    I have been working at Valtech full-time

    Pros

    Flexible. Good people. Good intent. Nice work environment. Great ideas. Articulate and polished employees. Huge brands. Luxury companies. Good past work. Things are on the up, just be patient.

    Cons

    Undervalued. Undermined. Overworked. Big bench in the wrong areas. Invests in acquiring other companies but won't give internal units the financial means to explore likely big winner ideas. Saying that, they also seem too reliant on partners who have no "skin" in the game for Valtechs success.

    Advice to Management

    People who excel should be rewarded before they start looking...

    C-level took a great agile company and rebranded into a basic web design firm. Its a $3 a share firm, where it could have been a $250 share company.

    Pros

    In heart of city, has clean interiors, have plenty of eatries around, it pays on time & have happy hours

    Cons

    Worst company I ever worked for. They will keep you till the time you bring money for them by being billable in a project. Performance doesn't matter. Good or bad. The day you are on bench, you are fired. No matter what your visa status is or if you are 9 months pregnant. They give minimum employee benefits and are highly money minded. They prefer to follow French culture in their office and hire French people as much as they can, as the company origin is French. They are currently laying off people as they are not making money and getting any clients. In their green card application, they tell department of labor that they have never fire anyone. Which is a big LIE! They fire in secrecy, groups of 4 every week. I haven't seen such an insensitive company in my career, which fires high performance pregnant employee and terminates her insurance immediately without informing. Their reason for lay offs- cost cutting. This review is not just coming from a disgruntled employee. This is the truth which its current employees might be hesitant to share.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value and recognize your high performance people and dont just keep on firing people.

    Pros

    Good location. Used to have good clients and hard working employees.

    Cons

    Losing existing clients due to over promises and consistently bad work quality. One of the worst managements. Caring for good employees is something they have not yet learned even after being in the business for several years. Lots of lay off's. They are not able to get any new clients now. All the good, hardworking employees have ether left or have been laid off. Employees don't have any say in the decisions. Decisions are taken by the management and forced on to the employees. Out of the box thinking is not considered or appreciated. They are now trying to hire people in cheap labor countries to reduce cost, no matter whether the resources are less trained in the trade. There used to be snacks in the cafeteria before, which are now long gone. No work life balance at all. You can be staffed on more than 1 project at a same time. I was consistently working for over 55 hours in a week and was never paid any compensation or bonus. And yes, there is no bonus plan for employees. It's only for the higher management.

    Advice to Management

    Build a strong base in order to succeed. Value good employees. Consider the thoughts of your employees sometimes.
