    Current Employee - Data Migration Consultant in New York, NY

    I have been working at BackOffice Associates full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've worked here for many years as an SAP data migration consultant. I truly believe that BackOffice's approach to data migration and governance is the best approach to ensure business ready data. I think you learn a lot of valuable skills here that go far beyond how to write a SQL statement in terms of approach to solving problems and not taking short cuts. Most of the consultants are extremely dedicated to the success of our approach and constantly improving it.

    The company is in transition, with new software and leadership, which I think has rocked the boat for some people, but I feel confident we are heading the right direction. The compensation model is a percentage of rate, consultants being paid for every hour the client is billed.

    Cons

    Consultants are "employees" getting a 1040, but really a contractor. The 401K match, health insurance etc are all paid out by the consultant. Work really depends on the client you are assigned to, and it can be very demanding. 80+ hour weeks can be normal depending on the client. BackOffice doesn't have any control over your work environment on the client site, but it is pretty clear what kind of project you are getting into at the outset.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a better way to determine career path. I like not being shoe horned into levels but it's difficult to know if you are truly advancing.
