Here's some lists of scandalous practices they employ at DevFactory: 1. They quantify people. This means they treat you just as numbers, this is evident by the way they are tracking their employee. They will force you to install a software called "gTeam Tracker" (they might have changed the name by now) or you will be terminated. This software monitors every move you make. It takes screen-shots of your screen, it also monitors the keys and mouse activities, and also takes mugshots of you from the webcam. The evil thing is, they are not satisfied with seeing all your privacy, your payment is dependent on the data that this tracker collected. So they put parameters and rules on what is accepted from this data taken by the tracker. A very good example is; Even if you did work, if the mugshots taken by gTeam tracker is not focused on your face, they will dispute that, and will not pay you for it because according to their rules, the acceptable mugshots should be focused on the face. I experienced this a lot, they owe me several thousand of dollars for not paying me for many hours, simply because my mugshots is not focused on the face. This practice is so nonsense because we are human, and the work we do is not pre programmed/routine, we are using our brain to do software work. What they should be monitoring is the output, not every move the employee make, not all our privacy. With DevFactory you have to put up with this, and you must be willing to give up your privacy. 2. Their motto is "Be Disruptive", what they are saying is think different, go away from conventional software development approach. That is what they are selling. Do you ever believe that? They are saying that their approach to software development which is "software factory" is the new unconventional method, really? What they are selling you is the reverse, Don't you know that the manufacturing/factory approach existed even since software development methodologies existed? It existed so long since when? When there are still manufacturing jobs in America, that's why they are using Henry Ford as an example, and you know how that was a long time ago since the time of Henry Ford. What they are selling is exactly the reverse of what they are doing, they are taking you backward to the stone age. I've been with them, so I can attest that their methodology is a ***, they are as good as mom & pop kind of company, they have lots of delivery failures, and when delays happens, those Indian managers ran away, they come back after the engineers solved the issue. You better find company that uses highly established software methodologies like Agile (Scrum, XP), and CMMI from the Software Engineering Institute of Carnegie Melon University. 3. Most managers I encountered, mostly the Indians are really inept and incompetent, they just have good political relationship with the executives including the CEO which are also Indians. With all due respect to the Indian readers, I'm not generalizing, this is just my experience with DevFactory, I'm no racist okay... These managers are just talkers, they like to puff their mouth with all air, no real substance there, they also like to show-off the work of others to the clients, taking the credits that belongs to the team. 4. All these incompetent managers comprising majority positions in DevFactory are all given absolute power over the engineers they handle. Even if you are awesome at your job, if they are threatened or the spotlight is taken away from them, they can fire you without a word, or any-time they want. You have no rights of due process here. 5. The CEO(Rahul Subramaniam) of this company lacks certain character which is very important to leadership. I had the opportunity to have several communications with Rahul, and my observation tells me what kind of leader he is. He is technical, that's a good point, however, he lacks integrity (i.e. honesty and excellence), I saw him makes commitment and promises that he actually never plan to fulfil. He just do it because it puts DevFactory in a good position, at least by human thinking. This is at all "deception" at its core, no matter how small it is in multi-million dollar business like this, it's a foundational flaw that tells us what kind of people, and core values that govern the company which is DevFactory.
