    I worked at Bloomy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great small company vibe
    Fast paced environment
    Wide variety of projects to broaden your experiences
    Great balance of customer interaction and technical work

    Cons

    Most engineers are off on their own working directly with customers
    This leads to minimal tribal knowledge since many best practices are not shared among team members
    Bonus system is bogus
    Lacks good business processes for making consulting profitable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Building strong processes for customer interaction, project management, development cycles, and QA are vital to the success of consulting firms like this.

    Try to see things from the employee's perspective -- they're not business owners and have different priorities than you do.
