Technical Lead (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – June 1, 2017
Poor management Brillio tries to emulate the Big Software services companies even though it does not have a good backlog of projects. Employees treated fairly and any approval is quick and efficient. There is a disconnect between management and employees.
Loud surroundings, difficult when presiding in meetings. Each day is different and you never know what can occur. Very little micro management Busy adhoc requests can delay regular weekly reports. Great working with TAMs and created some lasting friends. Only 40 hours, no overtime = work life balance
Working with TAMs all over the US
Company lost contract, did not disclosed limited opportunities.
Senior Delivery Specialist in the Service Center (Former Employee) – Fargo, ND – May 23, 2018
My manager consistently berated me in front of my coworkers. I was constantly threatened that my position wasn't going to exist much longer. My manager was not pleased that my work could not be completed in a 40 hour week, but was not happy that I was putting in more than 40 hours to complete the work. I was asked "Well, what do you do all day?" Part of my job was submitting a report of everything I did during the day and how long each task took, so she already knew what I was doing all day. I loved the job I did, but I couldn't sustain working 60 hours a week to get my job done or getting yelled at in front of my coworkers for not getting my work done when I only put in 40 hours.
Technical Lead/Architect (Current Employee) – OH – March 16, 2015
Brillio is a very good company to work. Their work culture is good. I have been with this company for the last 5 years. Its a company where you will find developers with good technical and analytical skills. Their recruitment process is too good to identify the good candidates from Market.
Skimpy on the hourly rate, benefits OK, no management
SDET under contract to Microsoft (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – March 3, 2015
The advertised Brillio contract was for 12 to 18 mos as a contractor for Microsoft. Microsoft was very satisfied with the work provided. After 4 months, the contract was over. Only given one week of notice.
Job Work/Life Balance - good. No overtime or weekends.
Compensation - I had not worked for such a low rate in 20 years, not enough to cover such a short contract period.
Job security - none.
Management - none from Brillio. Good communication with Microsoft's managers.
Job Culture - Liked being part of Microsoft's team. No team on the Brillio side.
Good learning experience
Was promised 12-18 mo assignment, lasted only 4 mos
