    Group of open minded, driven, experienced, and friendly individuals looking to great work together.

    Consultant (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsRemote work is fantastic along with affordable great benefits. All other employees are knowledgeable making all work a breeze to work on. Low stress job with a high return on enjoyment.

    ConsRemote work makes it difficult to get to know most of the people one emails, calls, or chats with. Expect to get to know a select few people well and the rest will come with time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCollaboration tools used for project management could be used, such as confluence. Currently, it's difficult to ramp up to a new project simply because no one has any documentation for anything nor knows who does.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Flexible Schedule but management and project teams are disconnected

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee) Schaumburg, IL

    ProsWork from home 95% of the time unless face-to-face required with a client, benefits and salary are strong.

    ConsNo process whatsoever. Inexperienced project managers. No communication between senior management and development resources. Lack of knowledge in resource planning. Never implement changes they say they will. Impossible bonus structure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe senior management needs to get more involved in the projects and/or hire the right people to properly manage projects.

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

    Great company to work for

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) Schaumburg, IL

    Pros* Good work/life balance
    * Truly supports remote working
    * Open door policy with upper management (including owners)
    * Management shows appreciation when extra effort is put in (more than just a "pat on the back")

    Cons* Lots of room for growth in defining processes and policies (not necessarily a con. It can be good to be part of the building of the base structure)

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work

    A+ for Alpine Consulting

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Schaumburg, IL

    ProsA fantastic work-from-home policy. I work with a group of highly intelligent and motivated folks. We have a great list of clients--nice to know your hard work is appreciated by all.

    We're not a new company--so quite stable with reasonable growth year-after-year. We have process, but not so much process that it gets in the way of doing your project work.

    I like the fact that everyone feels comfortable sharing their ideas... And, the fact that others actually listen to them!

    ConsNot really a negative, but if you are someone that needs to work in an office environment every day, then this is not the place for you...

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep being honest and open with us, transparency is key...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Senior Enterprise Architect

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Schaumburg, IL

    ProsVery SMART people to work with.
    Training is VALUED
    Nice balance of technologies to work with and opportunities to learn new technologies
    Diverse client base
    Work/Life balance is important
    Work From Home options
    No office politics
    Ownership has an open-door policy to talk with them AND they mean it!!
    Ownership is open and honest about company performance - just ask.
    Low volume of turn-over year-to-year.

    ConsVery flat organization; so career growth by titles is not there. (is a con for those who value management titles).
    Can spend some time on the bench. (Can be a con but use it to get training.)
    Can be working for a client for very long extended periods at a time.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Schaumburg, IL

    Pros* Great work-life balance

    * Very community oriented company
    * Senior management very receptive to advice
    * Allow people to be on the bench without fear of termination
    * Limited requirement for travel on most projects

    * Estimation process is not well defined

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to listen to employees and explore other areas of growth. Truly a great company to work for and you should be proud of your accomplishements.
