    I worked at WIT Software full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very imaginative, hard working staff. Occasionally a brilliant mind or two within the product development teams. Very good facilities in Lisbon.

    Cons

    Awful facilities at the headquarters. No sense of professional management whatsoever. Completely egocentric management to cover own flaws and overall inferiority complex. Total lack of respect for the Human Resources.

    I have been working at WIT Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This company, like the rest of the companies.. has some good and some bad things. The company is made of.. people.. and I don’t know anyone that has no flaws. On the good side: Projects and the possibility to go international. I’ve been always working with international costumers. The possibility to travel (sometimes it gets a bit too frequent) There are some great engineers working here. There are some bad too.. but I think they are a minority. I know that some PM are not that good but I can’t complain. Mine is quite picky… but not in a bad way. I’ve learned a lot because he is a demanding leader. And he have been always on my side. Even when I screwd a delivery. A few years ago my salary was quite bad, but they have been upgrading salaries year after year (thank good for competitors 😂😂)

    Cons

    I haven’t worked directly with the CEO but I’ve heard he is not the most empathetic person. Still.. It seems he has started a few interesting projects so.. it doesn’t bother me enough to make me leave.

    I worked at WIT Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It was a great company to start my career Only got out because I got a job offer from an international company, no way to compete with the job offer. - Good benefits - Salary above average for the geographical area - Great people - A lot of brilliant engineers (a lot of juniors too) - They really care about people - there are a lot of activities and cool events during the year. - From my experience and what I’ve heard from other projects they always try to use recent technologies - My project manager was Superb!

    Cons

    There should be more transparency in communication, but I recognise that there has been an improvement over the years. Some projects have legacy and sometimes you still have to look to veeeery old code. But there’s a lot of new projects too…

    I worked at WIT Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work with a lot of talented developers on some interesting projects in different areas. Company culture is starting to improve due to an amazing group of people in HR and similar areas.

    Cons

    Sometimes management is a little obtuse. Some people still think the way to get the better of each employee is with a whip.

    I worked at WIT Software full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good facilities, but a long distance to the city and facilities to launch. Projects ideas are good.

    Cons

    Worst manager i ever seen. The CEO think he is the best in the world and every body needs to be a "yes man" if you want to have progression and bonus. For him, a few news is the social media is enough to create a "good image" but only if is like he wants. The HR are a joke. They do a few "team buildings" events only if is ok for the CEO (and not for the workers) and only after work. If you don't go, forget your future progress in the company. If you need to travel, the accounting team will difficult the reimbursement of your travel. They only do what CEO says and don't have vision to the future. A secondary student can do there job. The operational team do what the CEO say but they are the only support you have (if they like you). You need to have luck with your Project Manager: only 2 or 3 are good and with vision. The others don't understand the meaning of the Project Manager . And the team leaders are the "yes man" of the CEO. So it's a dictacture...

    Pros

    I've working for WIT for more than 3 years, the people are incredible, the projects are very challenging, we work together with great clients notably telecommunications operators, the Work-Life balance is also great, there's a lot of flexibility in terms on creating your own work schedule as long as you stick to the minimum 40 hours a week. There a lot of community activities that are all sponsored by WIT, like the snow trip, WIT Awards, etc

    Cons

    The way HR hires and trades people from one project to another still puzzles me, it seems that there's no way of knowing how much time you will be in a project, or why they've send you to that specific project, in sum lack of transparency in terms of project change, and also there's lack of transparency in terms of annual raises. There is also a weird mantra around not allowing people to remotely work from home, common it's 2020 we have technology that allows us to work remotely without needing any physical contact whatsoever. The promotions also lack transparency and also the annual bonuses.
