Test Engineer 3 (Current Employee) – Vancouver, WA – November 13, 2017
I mostly don't work with anyone in the company since I am a contractor and I'm pretty much the only one assigned to my area. I mostly work with the employees of the company Beyondsoft is contracted by. My experience does not reflect most people's experiences with the company.
Associate Project Manager (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 19, 2017
I worked at BeyondSoft for a year and got laid off because my contract ended with the client I was hired to work with and they didn't line up another contract for me to jump into. I wish they had started looking for more work for me sooner as it's a great work environment and my manager was very flexible, but that's my only complaint.
Senior SQL Server Developer (Former Employee) – Redmond, WA – August 24, 2017
I worked for BeyondSoft as a consultant at Microsoft. The company leadership was pleasant to deal with and the work/life balance was great. I would recommend BeyondSoft to other individuals interested in contact positions.
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – August 3, 2017
Beyond soft is a vendor company. The actual working was carried out in Microsoft. The overall working pace is fine. Beyondsoft from time to time will gather all the employees who are physical working in Microsoft and talk with each other which is good for all.
agency provided expected support for contract assignment
Software Design Engineer at Microsoft Research (Former Employee) – Redmond, WA – July 7, 2017
Beyondsoft provided the expected HR infrastructure for being a contractor at Microsoft. One's actual experience with respect to management, workplace culture, etc. is entirely a function of the particular assignment and Beyondsoft as the contractor agency has no involvement. There was an assigned representative from Beyondsoft who could be contacted if there were any issues but I never had any. Once my assignment ended Beyondsoft made a good effort to find me a new contractor job.
Great for students or people working a second job.
Test Technician (Current Employee) – Vancouver, WA – May 23, 2017
Great for students or people working a second job. Management is not the greatest, can be stressful, lots of things to learn, processes to follow, not very good communication between the managers and employees. Full benefits available. Raises are possible.
Benifitts, flexible on time and schedule.
Bad managment, bad communication between managers and employees.
Associate (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – March 27, 2017
Beyondsoft is great for young professionals, the company is good about stocking the kitchen with snacks, and the Piraeus group seems to have brought in a breath of fresh air with their open communication and fun company events.
Beyondsoft is lacking in the benefits (ie: pto, insurance premiums, 401k, and office equipment). Your typical consulting/staffing firm.
small company events, snacks, free parking
could be considered "clique'ish", Chinese mainly stick with the Chinese associates and the Piraeus team mainly stick to themselves, slight essence of favoritism
Staffing Specialist (Former Employee) – Bellevue WA – March 2, 2017
Overall, working internally in the corporate office is tolerable. The political landscape changes month-to-month as the organizational structure changes. Benefits aren't great (aside from the possibility to work from home and free snacks/coffee). Company has an obvious preference to hire Chinese employees in the US, different business divisions seem to be struggling across the country, and management lacks a clear vision about future. Turnover is noticeable, and the general office seems barely content.
Free snacks and drinks, flexible work schedules, free healthcare
Solutions/Delivery Manager / Sr Service Engineer (Current Employee) – Redmond, WA – October 27, 2016
Been with Beyondsoft for the past 3+ years (contracted to work at a client site), and overall have no complaints. As a rapidly growing company, better perks and incentives to put employees first will come to fruition over time. Culture is improving for sure. The main office now has plenty of social events (food/BBQ and fun) that all employees can attend.
Excellent work/life balance, way under market salary
Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Vancouver, WA – August 21, 2016
Being hourly with the company I'm contracting for being very strict about overtime means there's an excellent work/life balance. You work your 40 hours a week and that's it. Management is very flexible on those hours, too. If I want to leave early one day, I can work extra on other days if I don't want to use PTO.
Which is something you might want to do since you get very little PTO and the wages are significantly under market rate so you'll be trying to squeeze every dollar you can.
Middle management is lenient and pretty hands-off unless you give them a reason not to be. As long as the company you contract for is happy, your supervisors and managers will be happy.
Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – August 20, 2016
These people are visionless, soul-less, humorless, despicable corporate tools. Pure swine. The management has no filial attachment to its hapless employees, whatsoever. Managers neither praise team members for a job well-done, nor back them up in times of bizarre client meltdowns. The benefits are truly the worst in the business. Imagine having to accrue both vacation time and sick time from ZERO on day 1. There are so many great Silicon Beach companies clamoring for talent--don't even bother with these fools. I SO wish Indeed would let me name names, because there are a number of degenerate troglodytes at this pitiful company who deserve public shame within our industry.
The Toyota brands look good on your resume
Worst benefits ever; no vision--only a staff augmentation firm
Tools Developer (Current Employee) – Boise, ID – May 6, 2015
The work environment is laid back and quiet. The team are a great group of people. Middle management does everything they can to support the team. Upper management does everything they can to undermine the team and try to make them look bad to the customer. Their goal is to move all their work over to China and I suspect my entire team to be out of a job within a year.
Partial Medical Paid, Laid back environment, great people to work with
PROJECT MANAGER (Current Employee) – Torrance, CA – April 27, 2015
This is a technical company that works at TMS headquarters, typically depending what department you are in will depend your experience. Some are total chaos and finger pointing while others are on top of things.
Aside from bad management communication. You will learn proper project management if you have good leadership and work on some impressive projects. The struggle is to process things in TMS process which can delays project's timelines dramatically.
Test Engineer III/Project (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – May 5, 2014
Pros-Overall I enjoyed working with Beyondsoft. Compensation was decent for the area. I enjoyed the people I worked with directly. Job was not too high stress or overwhelming.
Cons- On site rep was completely wrong for the job. As the face of the company he was the worst choice. Not sure how he got the job. When it came to hiring new people it was less about qualifications and more about who you knew. which is a good way to struggle to deliver quality work to a client. Budget was handled poorly.
Terrific Company!! Wish they had an east coast office.
Assistant to Printer Engineers @ HP (Former Employee) – Vancouver, WA – July 25, 2013
Loved working at Beyondsoft. Good people all. Sincerely enjoyed the day to day work assignments and felt privileged in my duties to to interact with all those talented HP engineers. Would highly recommend working for this Company if ever asked.
Flexible work hours.....no weekend work.....nice people all around
It would be better to be an engineer or software tester working at this company
