    Great opportunities and challenges as opposed to stringent stick to one job-task. Amazing culture, emphasis on work-life balance. Flat hierarchy, Agile methodology followers. New technology each time for new projects. Fast pace company, No direct mental pressure. The devs here are amazing - alot to learn form and look upto.

    I have been working at Equal Experts full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    WORK - Equal Experts only works on projects which involve developing enterprise level applications from scratch. It doesn't work on support / maintenance / enhancement projects. This means that work is always challenging & interesting for the developers & testers. CULTURE - No cubicles, No formal dress code, No Hierarchy. An open office where team members of a particular project, work together on the same table, while...

    Cons

    Equal Experts is still establishing itself in India. Their Kalyani Nagar, Pune operations started in March 2011. Therefore, the operational & administrative infrastructure of EE still resemble those of a start-up. These facets need to mature considerably. VISIBILITY - EE also needs to invest more effort in marketing / branding itself in the IT industry. As of now, it doesn't have very good visibility.

    Cons

    Rarely you find oiks in the network - but it does happen Government offices are traditionally awful - beware HMRC have a terrible website, partly due to a fight between HMRC and GDS government departments. But we helped build it anyway.

    Pros

    Everyone is focused on delivering value to customers and we use our values, not some old hierarchy to make decisions. The company deeply cares about being transparent and trusting the people that work there.

    Cons

    It is consulting, customers wouldn't bring us in if they could do it themselves so we get exposed to the bad culture and politics at the customers.

    I worked at Equal Experts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you're a pragmatic contractor that loves crafting software then this is a fine organisation to be involved with. My experience has been overwhelmingly positive - I was placed at a client with other EE people and felt valued and respected from day one. EE take care to ensure you're delivering value to clients, not just a bum on a seat, and this really shows. The interview process at EE sets the bar higher than...

    Cons

    They paid a bit less than some of the other consultancies engaged with the client but this is a minor grumble since the EE day rate is decent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up - the network is growing but by keeping your plans and strategy open it

    I worked at Equal Experts for less than a year

    Pros

    Work with *some* talented people. Excellent Day rate. Lovely People team.

    Cons

    Lack of project managers with people skills. Lip service to agile and team management (but without the follow through). Fabricating and manipulating sprint results to coddle client. Failure to listen and punishment to those that speak up about poor professional practice.

    Advice to Management

    Respect those that work for you. Just because "You wear shoes" doesn't mean you're right all the time.

    They pay market rates to contractors

    Cons

    - Although they claim to be a mobile outfit, the people on the ground working with the mobile developers clearly have no experience running mobile projects - Some the the "experts" were way below par - On the project I worked on, there was a distinct lack of professionalism - Everyone on the "team" I worked for seemed to only be looking out for themselves - They claim to be able to move you around between projects...

    Pros

    Interesting work which is challenging and rewarding, smart group of people to work with and flexible working culture. I particularly enjoy being able to get on with the work and not being tied up in meetings and other time wasting activities

    Cons

    So far nothing to grumble about :-)

    Advice to Management

    The culture and respect shown to clients and colleagues is one of EE's USPs. Growing quickly has the risk of diluting the culture. Balancing short term goals with long term ambition should help build a reputation which is unique in this industry.

    Pros

    When you go into a contract with EE, at the client site you never feel alone. The network is so big and influential there is a huge support and drive in the teams to deliver meaningful impact. Their clients are often amazed by the quality and determination of EE teams.

    Cons

    There's not much cons in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    To EE management I would say to keep doing what you are doing since is working great. I think EE works perfectly fine using this kind of flat management structure it has, the company it's just scaling by itself.
