    Pros

    he team is really incredible and welcoming. definitely, Precima worries about employee life balance. That's amazing! you will be surrounding by very smart people and a very collaborative team.

    Cons

    Some activities might be bureaucratic since we have many different teams dealing with the same projects. Precima is not a Startup, Do not expect a lot changes in a short term. Maybe that might frustrating.
    Also, recently the company is moving to be a software company. It was the best decision, but they hired the worst person to managing the product development.

    Advice to Management

    You guys hired Project managers that knows nothing about software development. Knows nothing about our clients and knows nothing about how to managing a product.

    I have been working at Precima full-time

    Pros

    Standard benefits that are trickled down from parent company LoyaltyOne. Office has cafeteria, games, gym. Lots of hiring. Potential for growth if at the bottom.

    Cons

    Seems to be nepotism at the company. Seeing some people quickly promoted while some have been here a long time. No standard in way of doing work in projects. People work in silos instead of working together. Meetings are held on the phone even though all team members are in same office. Lack of direction from management. No structure.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up how work is done. Hiring is good but there is no structure or process to help teams work.
