    Decent enough when there is work, but the Seattle region is struggling

    I have been working at Neudesic full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I like the projects when they are available. Good cutting edge technology, great onshore people, and "all right" offshore folks to manage, better then some, worse then others I've worked with.
    Good name for the SharePoint work.
    Decent app-dev projects.
    Great technical guys that I'd trust with estimates and to bounce ideas off.
    Decent balance between staff-aug work (it does exist) and custom work.
    With very few exceptions, no crazy deathmarches for me. Quite a bit of work from home. Limited travel

    Cons

    Benefits
    Recently migrated to new insurance provider (UHC) with great fanfare (less expensive and better coverage). The experience is anything but. The medical is all right but you have to watch it like a hawk and argue with the insurance on every claim. Laughable dental (will pay for silver fillings only?) and vision (no providers that take crappy UHC Spectera, laughable out of network benefit - 40 bucks for exam?)
    No 401k match
    Time off and sick leave joined together.

    Bonus
    Utilization based bonus is laughable. I did a calculation and with their formula with 100% utilization through the year it's just a bit over 3K. That's 1.8% of my salary so I just don't even bother with it.
    There is an arbitrary bonus from client partners if you help on accounts, some sort of percentage of the deal that is supposed to be available for distribution. The steps to get it are SO complex - do this in CRM, do that in another system, it has to close, it has to be delivered, etc. - again, doesn't amount to anything. Never happened to me, don't know anyone actually who gets it.
    Basically, you get the salary so bargain for it!

    Seattle Area
    People come and go, dropping like flies. No sales person. Second client partner in 5 months. The regional model was a lot easier to understand.
    There is no pipeline that I can tell, just small projects here and there.
    Lost connection to Microsoft Services which used to help land really cool complex gigs
    When using my ability to help sell (SOW creation, technical sales calls, reviews of RFPs), I don't see any financial benefit.

    Consulting Infrastructure
    Time entry, CRM, collaborative portals are all connected manually, a lot of churn just to get your time submitted
    The professional development manager interaction is perfunctory - doesn't help, doesn't hurt, can have it or not. I've had better, although also I've had worse.

    General (not a pro, not a con)
    Don't know why the company is developing that Pulse bs. I don't care about it, don't know if it sells.
    There is some sort of ad platform reseller, never hear about it
    There is a technical group that builds and resells enterprise bus stack, again don't know about it, probably should so I can pull that into complex deals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop telling how much you are going to invest in Seattle and actually do it (by the way, new office location != investment in Seattle)
    You need sales people and you need to pay them well to go after all the big and some of the smallish places in Seattle
    Reconnect to Microsoft. No, not v-, but get back into strategic partnership with Services that used to exist. You have enough ex-MS people to do it
    Hire the interns to do app-dev not just test
    Get the bonus system overhauled for senior and principal folks. Perhaps equal amounts of utilization, commitment and sales help? And stop skimping, 15-20% bonus is what I would bust my chops for.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
