        I worked at Primatics Financial full-time

        Pros

        Generally great people, good benefits, and competitive pay if coming from the outside

        Cons

        Resource constraints, morbidly slow hiring process, poor or non-existent year over year increases, declining revenues / margins

        Advice to Management

        Avoid key person dependencies and hire to factor in attrition and learning curve. Improve intra-company communication and work to provide employees with market fair value as replacement costs and training are higher than rewarding existing employees.

        Positive Outlook

        I worked at Primatics Financial full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        [Note: I worked in the company's Tysons Corner office, I can't speak to the experience in the Pakistan office] Employees are enthusiastic and proud of the product, very social workplace. Lots of emphasis on employee cohesiveness and a small company atmosphere. Open, collaborative work environment (a mix of cubicles and open-plan layouts). Limited competition in a niche market results in lots of new features and solutions...

        Cons

        Despite ostensible emphasis on cohesion, the company's technology, development processes, and organization are extremely incoherent and dysfunctional. Communications between senior staff in the US office and development/engineering teams in Pakistan is poor, creating a chasm between intent and execution. Development processes and technologies are baroque and under-engineered. Development teams pay lip service to agile...

        Advice to Management

        The onshore/offshore split is a huge problem, technically and culturally. Mitigate by improved communications, increased rotation between offices and cross-training, and stronger emphasis and commitment to product and process quality.
