Senior Test Automation Engineer
I have a joined a reputed product based company. The system is Lil complex and they are going to change the entire system into new. The problem is neither they have given me the KT about the application and no-one has any answers to my questions. I am not sure how I will achieve to make it as new system without knowing the existing system. Should I continue the or leave after 1.5 months? I am confident that I can find another job. Please let me know your thoughts.
Hi guys , Need your suggestion . I got a good offer from EPAM , 44 LPA as a chief Automation Engineer . I have resigned capgemini and my manager is now trying to retain me by saying “ I will make you travel at onsite “ , They might push me for a UK , Canada based opportunity . Will it be a better option to stay back and move to onsite ? I am not sure how much extra I can save over there as compare to India as I am getting a handosme salary over here . Any thoughts ?
My colleague is from Hyderabad while I am from Ncr . I feel he is doing partiality with me. My manager asked him to give me some kt for a new tool, instead of giving me kt he gave kt to another guy from hyd and involved him in the process. Generally when I ask him anything he ignores the chat. From last 2 days I had asked him to click on approve button for some test work and he says he will do but since 2 days I am waiting. My manager (also from hyd) is on pto for the last 2 days. Cont...

Culture needs work4 Jan 2021 - Associate Software Engineer in Cleveland, OHRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Always plenty of work, pay is reasonable, lots of great people to work with, variety of work
Not a lot of input for what you work on, out dated tech, expect to pick up a lot of extra hours and receive little recognitionContinue reading

Good company but tend to not pay competitively22 Apr 2016 - Anonymous Employee in Richfield, OHRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good work/life balance, good benefits, 401K match up to 4%, a small percentage of profit sharing (nice, but nothing to get too excited about), tuition reimbursement, onsite fitness center, onsite cafeteria, flex-schedules, 4 weeks of PTO on day one. The people are great and it's a solid culture. They do fun themed days and events for employees and their families which is nice. It's a very family oriented company.
If you've been there a long time expect to see your pay start to slip in comparison to your market median. HR doesn't make sure that employee's salaries are reasonable, typically won't be addressed unless the employee or their manager makes a stink. A lot of people eventually leave because they start to lose money by staying.Continue reading

The coronavirus wrath has struck, and my career at OEC came to an end6 May 2020 - Senior Marketing Communications Specialist in Richfield, OHRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I can honestly say, after nearly 6 years at the company, I was blessed to have gained the experience I did and met so many great people. Was OEC perfect? Absolutely not! If no human being is perfect, how can an institution comprised of human beings be expected to be. So, here’s the rundown: - Compensation: I know a lot of people complain about their pay being average at best. People fail to recognize that benefits are factored into your compensation. Let me break this down for you... the last time I accepted a job for 25% higher pay, my first paycheck turned out to be slightly less than my previous paychecks! How is that possible you might ask? 2 words: health insurance. At other companies, I paid nearly 4x more on health insurance than OEC generously covered for me. - Benefits: I cannot express this enough that this should not be taken for granted. So much PTO (I had 25 days after 5 years... with rollover!), paid smartphone, free gift wrapping around the holidays, free turkey at thanksgiving, and tuition reimbursement (the company paid $25,000 of my MBA y’all). And I realize that some of those other things are small dollars, but they were conveniences that gave me peace of mind from one less bill to worry about, one less stress around the holidays and time to do things and travel whenever I wanted. - Experience: I was able to work on so many different projects that not only enhanced my strengths but also developed new skills. They put me in roles and projects that leveraged every strength they saw in me that I may not have seen in myself. I worked on high-visibility projects and understood how they impacted the business and the bottom line. This experience has certainly helped me grow and prepare me for my career trajectory... and this is PRICELESS.
Now... I did say the company wasn’t perfect. What could they improve on? - For starters, they air more on the conservative side and definitely put integrity as a top priority, so they pretty much wait until they have everything perfect before they share information. Therefore, they aren’t as transparent and forthcoming as they could be. They could share more information more often. - They are growing through acquisitions, which means more processes are being established in an effort to become more global. More processes mean a longer workflow to get things done, which can sometimes become bottlenecks in moving projects along. As new procedures are implemented, consider how it impacts employee workflow and look for efficiencies. - With the growth of the company, it seems like the organization is getting top heavy. It certainly doesn’t help that the company generally has employees that hold pretty good tenure. But what does that mean for everyone else? Might be tough to secure management roles in the organization. Not to say they don’t exist, but definitely a right place, right time situation... so they should look at other ways to recognize their top performers when a promotion isn’t an option.Continue reading
We are very happy to hear you were pleased with our employee benefits. OEC’s compensation philosophy is to pay at market for base salary, with opportunities to earn more based on performance, and to provide an above-market benefits package. This includes high-quality health insurance, which the company highly subsidizes and great perks and programs as you point out. Integrity in All We Do is one of our core values, and we strive for transparent and timely communication, and will take your suggestions into consideration as we look at improving our communications, both to the whole organization and through senior leaders to their departments. We are also a company that is experiencing rapid growth, and we are looking for efficiencies wherever possible to bring established policies and processes into alignment. We believe there will be economies of scale as we continue to grow, and are working towards a goal of optimizing operations while we are on that path. Thank you for your nearly 6 years of service, your dedication to our mission and for taking the time to provide your feedback. We wish you all the best. - Amy French, VP, Human Resources

Great Company!1 Oct 2018 - Anonymous Employee in Richfield, OHRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great people - there are smart, dedicated people on just about every team. It's also an incredibly fun place to work. You can tell they care about their employees, and not just to put it on a marketing flyer! And they always look to promote, cross-train, and help people grow - any way to help employees develop while also keeping great people in with the company!
Could improve on communication from time to time
