    I have been working at AURORA Consulting Group full-time

    Pros

    Fast paced coding environment , lots of knowledge, good knowledgeable team. Good medical coverage

    Cons

    unrealistic time lines, management lies and tells you anything to get you in the door, "we have the work permanently" , then lays you off cyclically. 10 people hired, 12, people fired in less than a year". No paid sick days coding sweatshop

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying and be honest with your employees and clients. Look people in the eyes

    I worked at AURORA Consulting Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working among other talented people is great. Small company with a tight-knit group of workers.

    Cons

    Management isn't up to date on the state of the industry. They also tend to be very passive about seeking new clients and encouraging growth among employees. Strong tendency to play "favorites" with staff, lots of silly internal politics that accompany working for such a small company. No opportunities for advancement. No annual reviews. Very, very high turnover - I personally witnessed more than 10 people pass through one position during my time at ACG. Several ex-felons among staff. When the company is doing poorly, expect your hours and pay to be cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Brush up on modern standards, let natural leaders lead, let creatives shine. Stop trying to jam square pegs into round holes.

    I worked at AURORA Consulting Group

    Pros

    They provide an HRA account, reimburse professional learning, have flexible work schedules, and offer a wide range of project types and client industries.

    Cons

    There is virtually no possibility for career advancement, salaries are significantly lower than national and regional averages, no yearly cost of living salary offset, raises are few and far between and not based on performance, and the company is essentially an autocracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employees help guide the path of the company.

    I worked at AURORA Consulting Group

    Pros

    Small, local, flexible. At the time I was employed there, the talent inside those walls was incredible. Salary decent for the Buffalo area.

    Cons

    Very few opportunities for advancement. Structure of the company is based upon a consulting company and there are basically two types of jobs, chiefs and indians, 1:8 ratio respectively. Also, the owner is somewhat abrasive to both clients and employees. Very few people can tolerate dealing directly with the owner for longer than 6 months. Thus turnover is high

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Owner should sell the company to the employees (ESOP) and let the employees ideas and insights shine through.
