    I have been working at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates full-time

    Pros

    Senior staff provide for lots of flexibilty in work environment and allow individuals to develop freely
    Noone will hold you back if you are a performer and demonstrate ability
    Once was a lot of pressure to billable hours which is with any consulting company but the metrics are changing as company grows/develops
    Great people to work with both junior and senior positions.
    Lots of variety of projects and experiences
    Lots of opportunities to transfer within company

    Cons

    Different groups are better to work with than others. A good manager makes the job! Some managers not so good. Some managers are best in the industry.
    Difficult management structure to understand, so many different groups, takes a while to figure it out for a new person

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch the changing trends in the workforce and adjust.

    I have been working at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates

    Pros

    -Fair Salary
    -Great People (in my work group anyways)
    -Enjoyable social events (box hockey seats - free food and drinks)
    -Fast Paced Leading Edge Work

    Cons

    -Overwhelming to start without knowing any CRA work standards (aka very difficult to be comparably productive as co-workers)
    -Constant work to do, have to charge every 30 minutes of your time to a project code (but hey, that is why they call it work)
    -4% vacation pay, too little IMO

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Restrict the amount of repetitive work given to certain people (often people who are just really good at one thing, so find it difficult to find the time to learn something else)
