Processmaker / IT consultants not being paid

1 Bolivia Review updated:
Contact information:

Avoid this company. You will not be paid for work carried our, in progress or completed. Employed consultants in La Paz, Bolivia often endure not being paid for many months. Excuses given are no receipt of payment from the client. Sweat shop tactics are evident here and in practice here. The President of the company is a North American citizen. If he had a team of consultants doing this work and located in the United States, he would not get away with it. Because skilled IT jobs are scarce in Bolivia, there he does get away with it by blackmailing the workers. He takes advantage of the programmers and out sourced workers that perform the task of developing business process software. You will not receive payment timely, if at all, yet the deadlines for the projects will be demanded. You will work long hours, you will work evenings and weekends back-to-back without payment. You have been warned. Notify freelancers. Do not be easily persuaded to believe something by Colosa Incorporated. Do not be credulous. Do not be gullible.

    As with most anonymous complaints online, this post is untrue, and it is also unnecessary. Colosa values the contribution that developers make to our success, and has long-standing relationships with some of the best development houses all over the world. Genuine partners and customers know they can always contact us and receive a timely response to any of their concerns. Colosa is happy to provide references from our partners, our staff, or our many worldwide customers to anyone interested in undertaking business with us.

    Conveniently untrue in the eyes of the employer. This fact of working life is necessary to air because for too long in-house consultants are being delayed in receiving their timely wages simply because they are geographically located in a Third World country and not in USA territory. If beyond julio (July 2008) wages are excused or delayed again to consultants, then let us invite official non-biased opinion from the Department of Labor in La Paz with a random handful of very tardily paid employees independently present with their carnet identities for the record. The same persons will also present themselves to the US Embassy in Bolivia with a written complaint in hand proving evident and regular bad payment practice by their citizen; President of Colosa Inc. in Bolivia's national capital. The employer is invited to formally participate in avoiding this proposed action.

    I know many employees of Colosa, and I can verify that people who worked at Colosa were not paid in timely manner and often waited months for money last year. The situation improved this year.

    Brian Reale the North American owner of Colosa do not pay fair wages to employees compared to prices charged to clients. Last year wages were $200 per month for starting programmers. Most of the programmers quit because bad conditions and no timely pay .

    This year wages start at $350 for month for programmers who have university degree, but Colosa charge until $175 for hour when consulting. In two hours Mr. Reale receive what programmers receive in 1 month. It is bad exploitation and all profit go to Mr. Reale in USA. Everyone who want justice should avoid Colosa and no use their software ProcessMaker.

    apart from these employee and employer conflicts, i like processmekr. there is no way we should abandon such a product. you can instead try to create a fork of processmaker, extend it further and have a business of your own.
