  • They provide the opportunity for a great work-life balance in that you can work from home setting your own hours (in 12 reviews)

  • With flexible working accommodations for me and my team, to support in healthy work life balance, to incredible benies, this company has it all (in 7 reviews)

  • I suspect that they have contacts with people at local companies who share the same views (in 2 reviews)

    I worked at iSoftStone full-time

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, strong HR.

    Cons

    Too much turnover in sales team. Very little communications after starting a customer site. The Non-Compete agreement was too stringent.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to retain't account managers. Fix the restrictions in the non-compete if you haven'the already.

    I worked at iSoftStone full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are looking for a company to be your payroll this is a great place for you. You will be dropped into a client engagement and left there for the length of the contract. You won't be asked to participate in responding to RFP, help to build a practice, or attend networking events.

    Cons

    The cons are similar to the pros, you won't be asked to participate in responding to RFP, help to build a practice, or attend networking events. If you are a consultant looking to grow in your career and truly be a management consultant this is not the place for you.

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

    Pros

    Free coffee. Clean bathrooms. Nice view of Lake Washington.

    Cons

    Management either completely ignores you or is mercurial and constantly looking for scapegoats to cover their own incompetence so they can prevent themselves from being fired. The work is laughably rudimentary for most engagements, but management behaves as though we are doing something as difficult and important as brain surgery. It's all extremely ridiculous and I'm out of here as soon as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Promote only sane people. Have actual career advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    You can work from home if they pay you.

    Cons

    DO NOT work here as a small task independent contractor/ crowdsourcing. They WILL NOT pay you for your hard work!!!
    I would give the management 0 stars if there was an option. They also do not respond to your emails.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at iSoftStone full-time

    Pros

    Get to work with a lot of smart people, social events in the office during some lunch hours, everyone's really friendly

    Cons

    During some of the social events veteran office members are a bit cliquey. Had certain ebbs and flows of workload.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Maybe have a bit more formalized of an orientation? Was definitely great working for the company

    Pros

    Everyone treats you with respect. Company has occasional shin digs and flexible hours.

    Cons

    Sometimes work can ebb and flow. Definitely don't have that much support from supervisors, so if you don't thrive in that kind of environment it can be difficult.

    I have been working at iSoftStone full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In my 6 months with ISoftStone I have had team recognition and breadth leadership team recognition! My Engagement Manager is not just a person who approves my time sheets or asks for status updates, but also someone who genuinely cares about what we are working on. He wants to know all the ins and outs of our program in order to support our goals and ambitions. He inspires me on a daily basis with all his effort on our goals and business development, the career path he has set up for me is of genuine interest and has me completely focuses at work, and the guy has built a yearly plan around my skill set! The recruiting team has been eager to partner with us to bring on talented team members that enhance our client relations or find us new talent with top tier skills, as well as assist in staffing strategies.

    The facility is of course gorgeous being on Lake Washington and I always want to be there, but am self driven to be out fostering relations for our company and managing our project network.

    The company is always sponsoring employee appreciation events, from BBQs on the deck every Wednesday to full blown parties.

    With flexible working accommodations for me and my team, to support in healthy work life balance, to incredible benies, this company has it all!

    Cons

    No cons yet. At least nothing specific to ISoftStone. As my program grows we will be requesting faster internet to increase team performance onsite, but since we are pretty mobile right now I just don't see the justification in bringing it up right now.

    Being on a growing team requires my dedicated focus and I just don't have the time to spend with all of the awesome people... That sounds so silly, but they really are awesome!

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at Todd Watts, he is everything a great manager should be! Keep up the great work, it truly has been special joining your ranks!
