    Great Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsCollaborative Environment. This is a true solution based Consulting firm with great Portfolio, Project and Program Management solutions among other things. Staff is fun and impressed with Project Managers employed here. Client focused.

    ConsThere are not a lot of concerns that could be designated as a con. Maybe more company communication with consultants at client site.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Just Average

    ProsGenerally good pay, clean work environment, some opportunities for advancement, hardly any micromanagement, good career coaching if you're lucky enough to earn the favor of one of the key management players.

    ConsWhile they claim to be consultants, much of what Affinity does is actually staff augmentation, which means that employees' futures with the company are not as secure as they are lead to believe, i.e. you are brought on as a "perm" employee, but if your contract at the client ends, through no fault of your own, it's advisable to start looking for a new gig. Employees are sometimes made to feel as simply a commodity. Management can, at times, be biased toward employees who they choose as pet projects while other employees are left in the field w/ little guidance. Culture can, at times, be unprofessional and includes gossip, inappropriate discussions and behavior from management, and way too ego driven.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more transparently with your employees. Provide professional develop guidance to EVERY employee, not just those you seem to have a personal affinity for. Provide positive feeback when warranted, not just constructive criticism. Be honest about an employee's status with the company, i.e. if their employment is dependent on a particular contract, tell them that. Don't let them think they'll be there for the long haul, even if their contract expires.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
