    I worked at Professional Advantage full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lean operation, honest business, very open communication. Limited politics, very reasonable and lean management, good support. Pretty flexible when it comes to personal/family commitments. "Keep your clients happy" attitude. *Really* good colleagues, who are always willing to help each-other out.

    Cons

    Pretty much no corporate structure to speak of (this is not exactly a con just something to be weary of). No training, limited perks, and for consultants the work-life balance is a little off (but hey, they're consultants, and it's not too bad). Considering all this, the pay could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A yearly review is not enough. Consultants need more management and a bit less "putting out the fires" when the KPIs drop. Hiring someone approachable (i.e. who isn't the director!) to do quarterly reviews, would make for more successful on-boarding and a happier employer. (by the time this is read, most likely this issue has already been fixed.)

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Professional Advantage in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Professional. Asked all the relevant questions relating to experience, goals, etc, such as ERP experience, technical experience, relevant industry experience. Very pleasant, the surroundings are very professional for a Technology company. No actual testing required because they knew the company I was working for and one of their employees referred me to the organization.
