    I worked at Amentra

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work for Amentra is the constantly evolving work. During my time there I got to use over 4 languages and got priceless Enterprise Application design experience. There is always a new project, with different technologies.

    Cons

    Not all offices are created equal. If you are willing to travel you will get to work on exciting projects. If you are not willing to travel then you have the chance to get put on some boring projects. Projects also very by location, so some cities like D.C. have really exciting projects, but towns like Richmond are not so much fun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to create a consistent office environment. The company is growing fast, and they need to make sure operationally they are growing faster.

    I worked at Amentra

    Pros

    The company is young and dynamic, and because it was owned by Red Hat as its solutions group, there was a lot of opportunity and need to stay at the bleeding edge of technology.

    Cons

    If you're not okay with being a road warrior this company is not for you. Also, because they recruit directly out of college salaries are not very competitive for senior consultants- opportunities for advancement were fairly limited as well.

    Lot's of focus on learning to use technologies fast without understanding how or why they worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More mandatory internal training on the technical stacks involving instruction instead of self-paced training to benefit from experiences of the experienced.

    I have been working at Amentra full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with mostly bright individuals. Used to have a great company culture. You will learn an amazing amount very quickly. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Bonuses were terribly distributed - not based on merit or productivity at all. Manager had no concern for my career path. Terrible work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try caring about the career path of your talented consultants rather than promoting based on the "buddy" system.

    Depending on who you are and how you view it, travel may be seen as a con.

    Overall better communication and updates for how company is performing on a quarterly basis and how team members can become more involved.

    I have been working at Amentra

    Pros

    Young company with people who are extremely technically capable. There is never any threat of being let go when you are on the bench. Decent internal communications with other consultants within the company. Profit Sharing.

    Cons

    Hours can be very long. For as much as they talk about work life balance, there really isn't any. Bonuses are not as good as they say they want you to believe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should put more energy into figuring out how to support growth of the employees. Help employees feel like they can talk to management. There is a stated open door policy, but people don't feel like thier concerns are taken seriously.

    I worked at Amentra

    Pros

    Great for new college grads with no experience- It will allow lots of opportunity to explore numerous technologies, and to travel to interesting places.

    Cons

    You'll work long hard hours and often without compensation. You'll travel a lot, and that time is not compensated either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.
