Talent Management – professional career management
People are the highest value of our company. The company is its people. Our company pays attention to the improvement of the system of professional development, motivation, performance evaluation of our colleagues and the possibilities of their career growth.
For this we have created a special unit – Talent Management where professional Career Advisors work. From their first working days each of our new employees comes under the wing of a Career Advisor who helps a newcomer to quickly adapt in our company.
When I started working for SoftServe I expected new challenges and of course new opportunities but what was the greatest – I met here a lot of amazing people, real professionals – eager beavers who do their every day work with fun and willingness.
They work hard and do their best to make significant contributions in achieving company goals and personal development. That’s why I’m glad to be a part of a big team called Softserve.
When I came to SoftServe, I thought that I knew a lot. Three years passed and now I see that there is no limit for self-improvement! And here we can see advantages of a large company. If you want to take up something new and useful, you can always find a person who will help you in that. Because those who seek will find and those who try will finally reach! SoftServe is a real fountain of knowledge!
I have been working at the company for over 8 years. I am sometimes asked why I didn’t change my job for so long. Well, I believe that the promise of more interesting project or a slight increase in salary do not improve working conditions considerably, since any tasks become routine with time. Instead, working at SoftServe I always get decent salaries, flexible working hours, I work with great people who are always eager to help, cooperating with competent managers and pleasant customers.
When I came to SoftServe, I’ve started working at Marketing department, later on I decided to change my direction and moved to HR department. Actually this is what I like about SoftServe – you can find yourself and show your potential in the areas you’re interested in. Work here is interesting, intensive, satisfying, which is extremely important, and, of course, you get an adequate reward.
I went through all the career path — starting from “trainee level” up to the QC Coordinator position, so I can say for sure, that career structure and self improvement process is developed very well in the company. I love my work, as well as the people with whom I work. I can see the company’s future and I’m happy to be a small part of SoftServe’s history.
Thanks to the well-organized educational process for new employees and a friendly and open team, I quickly adapted to our company. After all, additional benefits have pretty contributed to it: flexible working hours, active rest (from outdoor events to gym training) and comfortable working conditions. There were no such benefits at my previous places of work. I am very glad to work in our great company.
In my work at the company, the biggest value for me is communication with people — it’s what always adds positive attitude to ordinary work process. Team work is the most interesting because each of us has their own thoughts, own professional view points; but when you seem to know everything about your work, there is always someone from whom you can still learn a lot.
A few of the brightest examples: we are the first to expand geographically, launch a training center, get acknowledged by Microsoft; we influence the future, in particular such most modern technologies as MS Silverlight and Google Android.
Having worked at SoftServe for almost 2 years, I am confident that our company and our employees deserve to be called the best in IT market. The company’s structure allows employees to develop, improve their skills with every project, and grow as professionals of the field. While working at SoftServe I worked on several projects, and due to the fact that the company has clear processes and methodology, my work was always interesting and efficient. The team of our company consists of people who really love their work, it is a pleasure to work with each colleague, exchange experiences and, of course, have fun together. As for me, SoftServe – is a decent job for professionals.
I like working in our Company because I can develop here professionally, communicate with many talented and interesting people, try my skills at something new, help others become successful. SoftServe is a company that is fast and quickly developing and it gives its employees a chance to grow together with it.
This is probably the only truly Ukrainian world class development company. And basically the only company caring about the growth of its employees, creating conditions and infrastructure for them. This company is for the chosen ones!
For me SoftSeve is a company of open opportunities where you can put a lot of ideas into action and feel yourself a part of a team of true professionals. However, in my work people I work with I like the most, because every day I get invaluable experience and a great deal of positive emotions.
My first acquaintance with SoftServe was at IT Academy. I was impressed by highly qualified teachers and an appropriate level of technical support of working stations. Once I’ve started working in the company, I have met many wonderful and friendly people who are always happy to help you deal with some misunderstandings. Also, most of my colleagues have many different hobbies – ranging from cycling and ending with hunting – so we always have something to talk about besides programming
SoftServe is one of the best places to grow as a professional when you work in the IT industry. You are surrounded by excellent professionals and you have leadership that listens when you provide the right arguments. What I love the most are the challenging project. In the past 8 years I had worked on various types of projects – in finance, gambling, advertising, etc. When I joined the company, I was provided with the opportunity to work on healthcare project. For the first time in my career I feel that what I do serves greater purpose than revenue and I work on projects that impact society in a positive way.
At SoftServe I’m working on interesting projects that allow to continuously improve my professional level. And thanks to regular feedback about my current work, I always know what I need to work on for career and professional growth. This helps me to keep myself in good shape and choose interesting career opportunities.
In the life of each us there comes a moment when the inner voice is yelling: “It’s high time you changed something.” That’s how I got into SoftServe, and this change was one of the brightest in my life! An interesting, promising work, intelligent people who surround you, friendly team and professional management – these are the keywords I can describe our company with. Working here, I get the necessary knowledge, acquaintances and opportunities faster than a desire to obtain them! Join us!
What do I like in SoftServe? This is a team with friendly atmosphere which is formed of highly skilled professionals, who can always learn something new, get practical skills. The company cares about the professional growth of employees, organizes seminars, workshops and meetings. It is worth mentioning that company’s management as well as management of development centers is approachable and tries to make work conditions more comfortable.
I enjoy SoftServe, for 5 years, I managed to work on different projects and meet interesting people from all over Ukraine. Development centers are located in different cities, each with its own special atmosphere. I’m confident of this, since living in Chernivtsi, I have a chance to work with amazing people from different devcenters.
Sometimes I wish I could go back into the past and change some of my decisions. But I’ve never regretted the choice of the company I made. I’ve got a cool team here, comfortable work conditions — what else can one need to be entirely happy? 😉
My work in the company consists in evaluating employees and in their development. But the paradox is that working with people I also constantly learn, develop, and become better. And among many other advantages, this one is the most important for me.
I started to work here back in 2004 and I was really worried at first as everyone was speaking about terrible contracts and horrible work conditions. All this turned out to be just gossip and on my first day I saw that really great and kind people work here. Each of them is a bright personality and very talented specialist. After a while people around you become like your family — they support, help, teach. It’s actually what SoftServe is — one big family with whom it’s easy to stride along in life.
Softserve is, hands down, the most dynamic place I’ve ever worked in. Put some great people and great professionals to learn from and you get an exciting, challenging and rewarding work atmosphere. It’s like a family – it’s never easy, but it’s great we are together.
SoftServe gives me a way more powerful incentive to self development than my previous six or seven jobs. Speaking English every day, new challenging tasks won’t let you go with the flow. And your salary does not depend on your manager. Well, it almost doesn’t A lot depends on you! This is cool! After all, there is no one to blame for your own failures … In addition, the team I work with is a team of like-minded people. People are ready to help you any time you ask them for! In the meantime, I cannot compare SoftServe to any other company – it is the best place of work for me!
When colleagues from other software development companies ask me “Why SoftServe?”, I answer that, first of all, it’s entirely UKRAINIAN company and Lviv is not some province for it, but the heart of the сompany. Secondly, everything WORKS here — any issue or problem has certain ways for their solution and, what is more, they are solved here. The third thing is that SoftServe is for those who really LIKE what they are doing.
SoftServe is an ideal company for the career growth. Your possibilities here are limited only by your ambitions.
I chose SoftServe because it is a company where I can develop myself as a professional. The working environment and people are amazing. The main advantage of SoftServe is its unique approach for a career growth that really works.
