    I have been working at gTeam FZ full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love being able to work from home, or a coffee shop, or while visiting extended friends/family in a different country, etc. There is no office to work in, which changes the culture dramatically. At IBM, for example, a few people were remote, so they missed all of the hallway conversations or the impromptu architecture discussions at lunch, etc. At gTeam, everybody is remote, so there's nothing to miss. All of our...

    Cons

    I sometimes miss going out for greasy burgers with folks on Fridays. If I had a magic wand, I'd make the recruiting process a little more fair for people who don't get hired. I see that some people here think gTeam gets free work out of people in the Trial phase of the recruiting process. I can clear that up - that's absolutely not the case. They get senior people to solve the coding challenges and then compare...

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what they're doing, but consider paying people who do a fair job on the trial but don't make the cut.

    I worked at gTeam FZ

    Pros

    Ah, the promises! If nothing else, one gets an emotional high from those...

    Cons

    Absolutely everything else-the testing (and lack of a concrete measurement program by which can understand. Completely arbitrary in measurement, across the board. Management acts as though they trained under the Nazis-no understanding of anything resembling respect to an employee. The list is too long for me to waste more time, here. I seriously warn anyone lured by their promises. It sounds too good to be true-and...

    I have been working at gTeam FZ full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I started working with gTeam three years ago, my spouse was relocated and I had to resign after working 10 years for a 500 Fortune public company. Very challenging environment, things mover 10 times faster that in an ordinary organization, personally it has been a great learning and professional experience.

    Cons

    Long and tough selection process, I had to complete a 5 day simulation. Also the guys you interact with during trial are not so helpful nor friendly.

    Advice to Management

    Share more about the company, there is a lot of misleading information about gTeam on the web.

    I worked at gTeam FZ full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The hours are somewhat flexible.

    Cons

    They fire people on a whim. They also continually fire the bottom 20-30% of workers. Managers encourage unpaid overtime. Your work is monitored via webcam. Some managers are verbally abusive. Crunch-time is non-stop.

    Advice to Management

    Have some humanity.

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

    Pros

    It is a work from home organization, it is one of many subsidiaries of Trilogy, the daily developing work is being monitored by Crossover tools that must be installed on your machine, and a weekly payment of your achieved hours is being sent by Payoneer. Every department in the organization has a very capable and technically strong employees.

    Cons

    You may feel lonely most of the time because there is no physical reactions between team members, and team Agility may affected by time zone from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    The team may need to meet physically at least once a year in a public conference.

    I worked at gTeam FZ full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Remote location - Payment is weekly - A lot of promises

    Cons

    - They are absolutely unorganized. I was added to a project and there was no briefing, all I was told was that we were cloning an existing product. Before I knew it, I was getting task notifications. - The remote location stuff is actually a myth. The Times are not as flexible as they say. For example, my team had meeting every day. And we had a compulsory meeting on Tuesdays - The time tracker monitors everything,...

    Pros

    The wages are "anonymized", you will get paid with a card that will allow you to bypass the IRS You can work from home.

    Cons

    - There's no challenge at all - They will assign you to a mission, your manager will never follow your activity, and it is impossible to get in touch with the managers. - It's an indian company with 2 head offices, 1 in Dubai to avoid taxes and another one in US, probably just a post box. Gteam belongs to Aurea a mega company that engulfs a lot of bankrupted businesses nowadays . - I the contract they will stipulate...

    Advice to Management

    The lack of implication of the team managers in maintaining a good relationship with the customer will ruin the contract. The customer want to be always in contact with your Gteam manager. But since your manager once he placed you disappears literally from sight you’ll be just a pawn on chess board and sacrificed at the first occasion for the interest of other consultant companies that are on the same project.

    Pros

    There is nothing "Pro" about this company.

    Cons

    The hiring process is very long, and you have a lot of task and test to test + the actual interview with a so called "HR representative" . You have a trial period, one that in case you pass, they offer a bonus. I was hired and they ask me to quit my ,then, current job, as they need people for full time jobs. After this, nothing for months. I didn't get my initial bonus, and I was not given anything to work on. Each...
