I worked at CompusearchPros
-Good work/life balance
-Pretty good salary for the position and the size of the company (though they are not big enough to compete with the big boys salary wise)
-Excellent on site benefits (they cover tolls, metro fare and mileage minus the distance to the home office)
-Get off on all government holidays and the day after thanksgiving
-Unless you are a manager, you don't have to worry about utilization rates, so you can actually use all you vacation time.
-Unlimited sick time (to a point; if you take 3 days off in a row or 5 days in a month you need a doctors note), so if you get hit with a massive illness you don't have to worry about using all your PTO recovering
-Senior management generally treats their employees with respect and the people at the company are very friendly and helpful.Cons
-Management does decide which client you will work with and you don't have a whole of say in it unfortunately. Generally though they are looking out for your best interest.
-The benefits overall are very good (vision, dental, health, 401K matching etc.) but the health insurance is with United; which is considered somewhat of a "bottom of the barrel" health insurance company. This can really hurt your pocket book when you have to get expensive prescriptions and then see your copay and wonder why you even have health insurance to begin with.
-Since Compusearch really only does one thing your a bit limited career wise as to where you can go; if you get bored with acquisitions software it might be best to leave sooner rather then later so you aren't stuck doing that your whole career.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Overall Senior management is doing a good job. They did have to make some cuts recently due to government cuts. My advice would be to better anticipate those cuts by making good financial decisions (ie saving up some more cash) so you don't have to layoff more employees in the future. Focus on what you do well and only start new projects if you have the finances to cover it if it fails.Recommends

The process took a week – interviewed at Compusearch in March 2010.Interview Details
Interview was okay, pretty easy. The interviewer was sort of unprepared. There were moments when she would try to ask me a question from her sheet, she didn't have it well planned out. However, she was really nice.Interview Questions
