We listed the types of companies that most often employ Java programmers in general and JavaRush graduates in particular. We decided to discuss the features, pros and cons, and pitfalls of employment in these companies. So, the following types of companies are:
Outsourcing in IT, as a rule, is called complete execution of any projects or work under the contract by the company providing the appropriate services and, accordingly, called an outsourcing company, with the guaranteed required result from the customer and the company itself controls the work process. Let's go over the pros and cons of employment in such companies for programmers.
Outstaffing is different from outsourcing because, in this case, the client company seeks and hires specific performers to work on its projects, while the latter work on the staff of an outstaffing company. The difference is that outsourcing implies complete execution of any work or rendering of services with a guaranteed result under a contract. At the same time, outstaffing is simply hiring a specific executive who has the necessary qualifications for the client on a temporary or permanent basis.
We have sorted out the definition. Let's talk about the pros and cons of companies. Companies often provide both services to customers - outsourcing and outstaffing. We will primarily speak about the pros and cons of the model. In contrast, the companies that hire programmers according to the outstaffing business model are about the same as those that outsource.
Product companies develop software products and services directly for themselves, not for third parties, as in the case of outsourcing and outstaffing. Therefore, many programmers contrast product companies and outsourcing companies, choosing between them because they both have advantages and disadvantages. Let's analyze the pros and cons of working for a software product company.
Companies that hire programmers to work on software products but do not work in the IT industry. This category most often includes banks, e-commerce companies, and other businesses with their own software products. Still, they are not the key and most essential elements of their operations.
Let's try to understand the pros and cons common to this type of companies in terms of employment for programmers. Overall, it should be noted that companies in this category and their working conditions for programmers may be quite different since it includes a variety of businesses and organizations.
What can be concluded from the above? There are advantages and disadvantages, none of the categories is clearly preferable, but it is possible to benefit from working in any of them. Also, we should not forget that the division of companies into types is somewhat relative. There are excellent places to work in each category, and frankly, not the best companies. You can find yourself and be a respectable professional at any type of employment.
