    Worked for Keane for 3 years.

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Howell, MI

    ProsCan't really think of any pros for working for them.

    ConsYou are locked in to whatever technology you work with when you start with them. They will not put you on a contract with a customer unless you have at least 5 years experience. If the technology you have experience with dies, you can't move to another technology unless you have 5+ years experience, even if you have a certification.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to treat their employees better!

    Miserable Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsWide range of benefits (but some of the premiums are higher than other companies)
    Great Parking
    A chance to work in a larger company environment

    ConsThis company is very chaotic and disorganized. It still functions like a bunch of smaller companies. They are very reactive and fail to plan ahead.
    Pay raises are a joke and they are constantly trying to send as many jobs to India as possible. Between the high turnover and layoffs, a lot of important processes have fallen through the cracks. Employees are not treated as a valuable asset. There is really no incentive to work hard because only the higher ups will get a raise, bonus or promotion. They will still expect you to work way more than a 40 hr work week. Kiss your nights and weekends goodbye.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou should value your employees more. You would be more successful with a happy & dedicated workforce.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Staff augmentation engagement.

    Consultant Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Richmond, VA

    ProsStrong national presence that seemed to support growth of their employees. I have heard excellent reviews of Keane nationally, the Richmond, Good salary and good benefits.

    ConsThe Richmond, VA office seemed to be in over their heads. Several employees were in staff augmentation roles with very little management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore support in the staff aug roles. Look to develop employee skill sets so that you can position Keane teams to take on projects and deliver as a unit.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    OK Port in a Storm

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Trenton, NJ

    ProsOK Salary and benefits. It rally depends on your manager. My direct manager only contacts me when necessary. Other managers I have worked with are great. Do not expect a pay raise in the future. Leave polidy for emergencies is very good.

    ConsLong hours depending on the customer. The customer is king and employees come second. Onboarding is missing or inadequate. You choose.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet organized and realize your employees are your most important resource in a IT service industry. Good luck in the future.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
