    Great experience so far!

    Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat company to learn new technologies, work with bright people from various backgrounds, training opportunities are good, projects are good as long as travel is not a problem

    ConsWork life balance is not the best, upward career management needs improvement, travel could be a problem in the long run, so its good to be aware that its important to be a road warrior

    Advice to Senior ManagementWith new technologies like video chat, it would be good to look at changing the 3-4-5 consulting workweek.

    Entrepreneurial culture with Freedom but overly restrictive internal tools and processes

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Jersey City, NJ

    ProsEntrepreneurial culture with freedom to achieve what you want. Great People despite the fact that the French Management has limited interaction or knowledge of the US market, resources and trends

    ConsOverly complicated French driven processes designed by people who sit in an office and never get out to client sites where the work really happens
     Antiquated tools and technologies (Laptops, Conference Bridges, web based tools etc)

    Advice to Senior ManagementBesides comp and work life balance the only thing your people need are good tools to do their job
    Please modernize the software, systems, bridges and computers they use on a daily basis. Its not enough to talk about CLOUD, Information Management and other emerging technologies without embracing them. Move to new technologies and cut reliance on ineffective IT support personnel. This will make your people happy and you will save $$$.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Poorly managed

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGood vacation benefits. Work from home is frequently allowed.

    ConsPoor management, poor employee morale, no job satisfaction, few opporunities for advancement, poor compensation and recognition programs, excessive focus on sales with insufficient focus on delivery.
