    Pros

    Excellent leadership from the top down. They really listen to their employees and want to understand our thoughts on things and they really take our advice into consideration when making decisions. Great work life balance and a good attitude in the office. If you are looking for growth opportunities, look no further, Calance is growing significantly and the opportunities within the company are tremendous.

    Cons

    With growth comes change and there has been change at the Executive level over the last 6 months. This change was needed, but still change none the less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your leaders and understand what they each bring to the company and where they can be most effective when it comes to growing Calance and obtaining the goals we have set forth.

    Pros

    It used to be nimble and sensible earlier.

    Cons

    Poor foresight, cheap vision etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the thing has not grown in 10 years, it probably won't grow ever.

    I worked at Calance full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Having good friends. Nothing else comes to mind. Nothing to say good about this company

    Cons

    No advancement, no training. No management support only looking out for themselves. Hiring younger people and all they care is about partying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back up your co-workers. Do not ask them to lie to the customer

    I have been working at Calance

    Pros

    If I am being honest to a friend I would not want them to work here.

    Cons

    horrible favoritism, every employee is treated differently no consistency. Management sorely lacking. No career growth. Very depressing environment. Nothing but backstabbing, lies and whining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fire or demote yourself. You are not managing you are looking out for only yourself not the organization and certainly not your employees. Foster communication and teamwork if you want even the smallest chance to succeed.

    Pros

    I did not see any pros here. All is negative.

    Cons

    Senior management is not supportive. They think, employees are their salves to whom they can fired at any time without any notice.
    Management even does not has vision of 2 months. They start hiring than without any contract signing than start firing when deal does not strike.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase vision so that company could be stable.

    I have been working at Calance full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Gives of a lot of leeway to employees to bring forth their ideas - top most management is absolutely reachable. Meritocracy - I have not seen a high performing individual being allowed to leave. Very flexible work environment. Led by people who have had track record of creating multi-billion organizations. Trying to bring in focus post acquisition of a full services firm.

    Cons

    Recent acquisition of a full services firm has brought some challenges for certain section of old employees of acquired company. The focus has shifted to clear deliverables. Long term strategy may not be clear to all at this point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As soon as the long term strategy is clear, do communicate to the employees. Keep them engaged on your thought processes.

    I worked at Calance full-time

    Pros

    flexible work from home, lack of structure, flat hierarchy and great visibility. you can be based anywhere in US and travel to client site or work remote.

    Cons

    no formal review process. no compensation raise, since no performance data is collected. you are at mercy of the promoters for a raise every year. very weak leadership. no long term strategy. the only strategy is to improve bottom line without any opex. no investment in employees - absolutely none. no training. no self development encouragement. none. extremely fractured communication structure.
