  1. Good place to start, but not a lot of opportunities to grow

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits

    Pros

    Great place to start out - able to work on business development while working on client delivery.

    Cons

    Smaller firm so there's less room to grow. If there is growth, it seems to take a while - a bit uncharacteristic for a consulting firm.


  2. Fairly nice staff, few benefits, HR department varies

    I worked at Catapult Consultants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the staff are friendly and helpful, very responsive if you have questions or need assistance with something.

    Cons

    Benefits are not always available High turnover in HR staff makes dealing with HR sometimes difficult Not all the HR people are on the same page, one may say one thing, then another says something different. You can get a completely different view of the company depending on which one you need to deal with, as they all seem to have completely different personalities and agendas.

    Advice to Management

    Friendly, helpful HR staff are the secret to employee satisfaction and retention

    Pros

    Salary is decent if you work as a contractor for them and the atmosphere was pretty laid back, also the physical location of the office is nice..

    Cons

    Management is underqualified to hold the positions they hold. The employee turn around is extremely high. There were also unethical business practices as to where employees were terminated for issues related to health and if you are a woman and looking to start a family while at this company, you might as well consider yourself terminated.

    Advice to Management

    Deploy best practices and discontinue the use of unethical business processes.

    I worked at Catapult Consultants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Team Members work hard to deliver the best service to clients.

    Cons

    Some Account Management personnel are in over their heads - poor manager, poor client management and promise the world. When the world can't be delivered, it makes the consulting team members look bad, which is not good for the company. Senior management does not have control over the Account Managers described above. Makes for a chaotic work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people, and you will deliver great client service.

    I have been working at Catapult Consultants full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At Catapult Consultants you may be required to do a little of everything in addition to your position. This will give anyone the chance to grow whether Senior or entry level. You are not micro managed, so when you are given a goal, you are also able to come up with your own "plan of execution".

    Cons

    This is not the company to work for if you are looking for easy money. If you are not pulling your weight, it will be quickly noticed.

    Advice to Management

    Stay supportive of your employees.

    I worked at Catapult Consultants full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible teams, when you don't find the answer you are looking for, it is most likely not been asked or created. Subsequently, you have the opportunity to create core business processes for the firm.

    Cons

    You have the opportunity to create core business processes that should have been in place. There was a divided leadership structure during my time at the firm .. even though there were only about 120 persons on staff at the time, the dysfunction caused by a few senior managers made the firm seem like it was more than 5,000 persons and a matrix of many, many layers, when in actuality there were at best 3 layers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your consultants and include customer feedback in your management metrics.

    I worked at Catapult Consultants full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work ethic of employees.

    Cons

    It's not surprising thatthey are missing a lot of the infrastructure and support they will need to grow to become a larger enterprise. What is surprising is the resistance to change and the management paralysis of the company considering that there were less than 120 employees at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and create a more open and team centric environment so that your employees will want to share more & better "Best Practices" with the organization. Also, some of the management function is plagued by dysfunction similar to a corporate giant of thousands of employees ... That is not an asset for a small business!

    Pros

    I say "working with Catapult" because it is a flat organization and very friendly. Lots of flexibility, great benefits and corporate leadership who are willing to listen and help you in every way.

    Cons

    I don't get to listen to the radio much anymore because I no longer have the 4 hour commute to and from the National Capital Region!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
