    I have been working at Cambria Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Great people, reasonable benefits, challenging work, intellectual environment, pretty good company reputation, career growth opportunities if you want them.

    Cons

    Less than industry standard salaries for the level of work and commitment expected. Increasing staff turnover is distressing. Culture shift from "excellent services and unique organization trying to take the best of a big firm and leave the worst behind" to one of growth, utilization targets and performance. Cambria now people come second to growth. Employee loyalty is at an all time low because of it so expect more turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-dedicate efforts toward culture improvement, or face increasing turnover. Watch top leadership for excessive focus on growth and utilization over a 'balanced' management view.

    I have been working at Cambria Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, pleasant senior management, "no layoff" policy, genteel work culture, supportive team members.

    Cons

    Zero professional and staff development opportunities, sole concern is short term utilization and profit margin. Cultish "team building" activities and passive aggressive office politics. Extremely uncompetitive salary and bonus package. Laughable salary increases. No clear performance metrics to achieve. Management opportunities are closely held and rarely offered. Business development opportunities are arbitrarily pursued, and are not aligned with core subject matter competencies.

    I have been working at Cambria Solutions full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Chance to work on some interesting public government projects in the transportation and health and human services industries.

    Cons

    Though there is a "non-hierarchical" style of managing and many areas remain the responsibility of the employee when it comes to offering input and ideas the power structure is opaque and top down. This makes for an unpleasant stifling experience. There was also a lack of training and a reluctance to offer constructive information to new employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to improve the lines of communication between employees and work to incorporate the creative contributions of temporary or at will employees. Treat all employees regardless of employment status like they are valued members and you will have better productivity returns.
