Hiring In-house Tech professionals? Pros & Cons

Pros

Part of your company

A full-time developer is not only a part of your tech team but also part of your organization. They share the same environment as you to work and grow as a part of the company. Thus, are easy to reach and work with.

Easy to Supervise

As they are in the same building as you are, it becomes very easy to assign them tasks and observe their progress. They can always put in the day’s report at the end of the day on your table or discuss it face to face. Also, you can make a balanced team by shifting them to other teams based on their work potential.

Secure relationship

They are hired for the job role on the legal ground and share employment contracts and work payment details. Thus, they keep the company’s sensitive/confidential data safe to work with. The developer is not going to run away or leak the data.

Direct Communication

In any working model, communication is a key aspect. And with your in-house teammate, you can discuss, plan, understand, and complete any technical requirement in person. There is no need to rely on digital tools for communication or wait for your internet to stop acting up.

Cons

Make the team from Scratch

A software development team is not some random developers or engineers working to code together. But they need to be skilled and complement each other strengths and weaknesses. And work with the Project manager and CTO directly or indirectly. To put it quite bluntly, it is not an easy task to assemble a tech team, it may take years to get together a couple of developers with some genuine talents.

Costs

The in-house employee doesn’t only cost the regular monthly salary but includes management costs. Namely, taxes, paid leaves, medical insurances or allowance, office space rent, technical equipment costs, etc.

Keeping them Occupied

When you have an in-house developer, it becomes a task itself to have work for each one of them. As to be honest, not every day the software would need some patch-up work or updates. Also, you need to have a long-term project coming so they have work around the year. As you may not be able to remove anyone without legal guidelines even when you have no work to assign them

Replacement

When any of your developers decide to quit due to XYZ reasons, it becomes a hassle to find a suitable replacement in time. As they must be from the same location and able to commute to the workplace every day. Whereas, a better resource is staying 100s of kilometers away but can be hired with an offshore dedicated development model.

As they have an in-house team to be managed and provided salaries to. And also have commercial workspace rents and a set of other costs to handle. They usually work on bigger projects that are long-term and have better hourly rates. And do not easily take up smaller projects with a small budget.
