I have been working at Bluewolf full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
I've been here for a while now, and I've seen people come and grow amazing careers, and I've seen people who haven't lasted very long. The thing is, you can generally tell what type of people will flourish and those who won't. If you are not scared of a challenge or being put outside of your comfort zone, are autonomous but feel comfortable to reach out for help; if you are motivated to succeed beyond all else and have a hard work ethic, you will do amazingly well here. The people who don't generally work out are the ones who need more of an organizational structure with clearly defined procedures; they are generally the type who need to know who is making decisions, and have had someone already clear a path for them. It is definitely a roll up your sleeves kind of place. If you have a big ego, it is probably not the best place for you.
This company is growing fast. The growth generally revolves around a team based culture where people are almost always willing to go out of their way to help you if you know how to ask for the help. I can honestly say that there is not one jerk at the company.
Because we are growing so fast, there is indeed some "organized chaos." This has some negative results that others have mentioned on this site (see below.) That said, there have been some major changes lately that show that the management team is listening - there has been a major investment in a talent management team to to be a feedback loop for the company as well as help employee's define their career paths. Every single position at the company is listed, and you can call out what position you aim to have in the future. If the position doesn't exist, you can suggest it.
There are also people who are very successful at Bluewolf who decide to leave. I think this is more a testament to the desirable skills you can develop on the job more than anything else. As a result some of the biggest names in tech come calling. There are definitely some things Bluewolf can improve upon to help this (See below.)Cons
Margin is king, even in this great environment. This results in some of the negative things that are written on this site:
-Benefits are getting better, but still generally not the best.
-Pay has become more competitive, but it is still not above average.
-There is no equity.
-Most managers are doing too many things to focus solely on managing.
-Someone here wrote that we are perhaps growing too fast - I'd have to agree with this (although it does present a ton of opportunity.)
To succeed you generally have to work your tail off. This is not a bad thing, but you have to be the one to create your own work/life balance and create your own boundaries, or the job can be consuming.
It seems the reviews on this site vary widely. If you read as far back as April-May 2013, you will start to see the reviews of a separate recruiting company that was formerly under Bluewolf's name. There also seem to be a few people who feel scorned. Outside of that, the reviews paint a pretty good picture of what is happening. I'd take the overall rating with a grain of salt because of the number of reviews that don't pertain at all the company that Bluewolf currently is.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Put quality higher on the totem pole than margin. Do whatever you have to do in that regard.
Offer path to equity. Invest in more non billable resources.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
