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

    Pros

    I like my life at Perficient, but I want to provide a review that is realistic. There are positives and negatives. Some of the reviews here are obviously from people who were fired (I can even see the same comments in some of them which I would guess means the same person). Perficient is all about the results. If you get them, you can make a great career here. If you don't, the performance review process can be painful. What I like most about my time here is that it's really entrepreneurial. Maybe that's a result of the growth by acquisition. It seems like you can take a path and make a success of it. Someone told me (when our company was acquired) that it will be what you make of it. That's definitely true. I've been promoted twice, and I have worked on some really interesting projects for the biggest companies in the world. I like that, but it's not for everybody (read on).

    Cons

    If you like stability, this may not be the best place for you. Our org chart has changed like 4 times in 3 years. I think the changes were smart each time, but it is a bit confusing at times. Also, I notice that when utilization is low we tend to let people go. I don't mind that so much since the only ones ever let go are the bottom of the performers (and probably some of the negative reviewers here). I do wish we would keep a bigger bench though. I really love my manager and the management of my business unit (I'm in the Microsoft group), but if you want to see or hear from our CEO you probably won't. He's either shy or disinterested. I've heard he's very busy with investors, but I think a CEO should spend more time focused inward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be very clear about our strategy. It seems that each business unit operates in a silo too much. Also it seems that there's some territorial behavior amongst business units. I came to Perficient through an acquisition, but before that was with a very big company. The territorial behavior at Perficient can be bad, but it's nowhere near what I experienced at a bigger company. I think Perficient still acts like a small company sometimes, and I really like that. Overall, I would say Perficient is the second best company I've ever worked for. The first was the company they acquired.

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Perficient.

    Interview Details

    There are several steps prior to meeting face-to-face with the team, including a phone screen for personality/culture fit and another one for a skills fit. From there, there are face-to-face interviews to discuss the role and expectations. Every candidate for every role is also asked to do a writing sample.

    Interview Questions
    • There is a "dev test" in which you are asked to do some hands-on development in some pretty standard coding areas -- HTML, CSS, JavaScript, ASP.NET. You have access to external resources (Google, etc.) so its a pretty fair representation of normal code troubleshooting.   Answer Question
