A former employee shared his/her experience about working for Simplus on Indeed in September 2015:
"Simplus is a startup that is trying to find an identity. They are growing fast and beginning to focus on a product. Communication was not the best and the executives did not always communicate."

Former Employee - Solutions Architect says"I worked at Simplus full-time for less than a year Cons: 1. No work life balance 2. No time management 3. No organization structure"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Simplus full-time for less than a year Cons: I felt that I was always under pressure to deliver low quality work product. I also witnessed management tell (what were in my opinion) lies to / about employees."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Simplus full-time for less than a year Cons: Though the health plans were opt notch, the benefit premiums for employees were the highest I had ever come across for a family. Misleading feedback - Don't be surprised if you are being told that you are doing great work, only to be dismissed the next day. Too much emphasis on billable hours and certifications. Of course you are a platinum partner...now. Any company would be if they hounded their employees about billable hours and obtaining certifications for partner points on a daily basis. Supervisor dodges you for your one-on-one meetings instead of providing constructive feedback to help further your career and growth within the company. If you value feedback like I do, avoid this company."
Former Employee - Developer says"I worked at Simplus full-time for less than a year Cons: They treated the developers poorly. The project managers and the CTO were rude to the developers when there were bugs in the code. They should know working that when developers write software that there are going to be bugs every know and again. They didn't have QA testers."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Simplus full-time for more than a year Cons: There is no job security at this place. Just because they are a start up they feel they can screw with people's life by hiring them and letting them go the next month. They want to sell you the idea they are building a company for everyone but the truth is you are just one more employee who will get fired if you are no longer needed. People in Management have "VP" titles with a team of less than 10. Don't expect to get any support on the technical aspect from your boss because you most likely won't have someone who is technical enough to teach you anything."
Former Employee - Anonymous says"I worked at Simplus full-time for more than a year Cons: Who is the CEO? I think I know his name but the reason no one has an opinion of him is because no one who isn't in the big boy club has ever spoken to him. None of the management knows anything about our products and the few who do are too overwhelmed to train anyone else so no one knows what is going on. There is no job security. Horrible benefits. No HR policies. And did I mention the big boy club? If you are a female expect to be a secretary or executive assistant or you will not do well here and find that you have zero support should something inappropriate happen to you or your other female friends. All support goes to the many men in management who have no idea what is going on yet all have a fancy title. This company is chaos. It will bring chaos into your life. Not worth the stress. Unless you thrive in a "we'll throw you to the wolves and you can figure it all out autonomously while others are trying to throw you under the bus, but we can offer a challenge!" environment, then this might be the place for you."
says"I worked at Simplus Cons: -Benefits below average -No 401k -No FSA Account to help pay with medical bills. -Poor Management, a bunch of young and inexperienced people with big titles like "VP" and no idea of what they are doing -No clear direction of where they are going. They could hire you and let you go the next month if they decide to change directions. -Be skeptical about any bonuses built in your compensation. -Overall I would avoid this place."
Current Employee - Senior Consultant says"I have been working at Simplus full-time Cons: What used to be a friendly and open team now suffers from politics and blame, caused by a overinflated leadership that self serve their own interests. Job titles are used without any empowerment as everything is kept under tight control and centrally managed. The team have been sold out twice and now slowly assimilate into Infosys. Blatent favourtism especially between 2 of the leadership team. No wonder so many people have left."
Current Employee - Salesforce Developer says"I have been working at Simplus full-time Cons: Since Simplus acquisition the plan all along was to sell out, and have now done to Infosys. The management showed just how hypocritical they are by preaching how much they cared about people and culture, but were willing to sell out to an Indian offshore company. The company is very political, management do whatever is necessary to keep power with one or two. Arrogant leadership, better places to work."
Current Employee - Salesforce Consultant says"I have been working at Simplus full-time for less than a year Cons: Far too many managers. Of the 70 people in Australia over 25% of them are Managing Directors, Deputy Directors, Delivery Directors, Sales Execs, the list goes on and on. Despite all this overhead and lots of talk around new products and services the reality is the company hasn't grown at and shrinking its consulting base. Management believe their own BS and causes a very unhealthy place to work."
