    I have been working at Alpine Consulting full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Remote 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.

    Cons

    Remote 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 ManagementAdvice

    Collaboration 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.

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Schaumburg, IL

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    A 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!

    Cons

    Not 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep being honest and open with us, transparency is key...

    Pros

    Very 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.

    Cons

    Very 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.

    Pros

    * Great work-life balance

    * Allow people to be on the bench without fear of termination

    Cons

    * Limited number and scope of projects
    * Sometimes appears to be more of a staff augmentation type company rather than owning projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue 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.
