I have been working at Illumination WorksPros
-Consultants really do get the opportunity to stay on the bench for a while, unlike some other companies. Except for the ones that are let go.
-Decent vacation time for a small consulting firm.
-There are some good employees and consultants in the company upon which critical projects depend. They are the sole reason why the company still exists.
-Some very cutting edge technologies depending on the projectCons
-Company had 100% turnover rate in the last year.
-Consultants on the bench get submitted to jobs that have little to nothing to do with their skill sets.
-The company is just now getting into vendor management systems that other non-technical companies have been staffing for years. With the exception of a couple of key projects, there is very little "solutioning" that goes on. 80% of the opportunities are staff aug and you will probably get called upon from 20 other agencies for the same opportunity
-The "innovation lab" is basically a fancy term for busy work that people do on the bench.
-Bloated management structure makes it next to impossible to accomplish anything strategic despite how small of a company it is (around 70 employees).Advice to ManagementAdvice
-Slow down and think about sustainability of hiring decisions, projects, etc. Stop wasting time on staff augmentation, unqualified business "leads" and throwing bodies at potential projects that are not real in an attempt to win business. FOCUS
-Come up with a business model and do not get distracted from it. The financial allure of staffing will potentially kill this company
-Come up with a strategy for growth.
-Allow people to work autonomously without needing endless confirmations of approval that do nothing but slow everything down and appease all of the big egos in the company.Doesn't RecommendNegative Outlook
