    Management Does Not Understand Current Market Trends

    I worked at Catapult Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great location, people are very friendly, general work atmosphere is great

    Cons

    Horrible SOW's that are not even possible to meet with given hours but yet expected
    Internal IT and management think that a 5 year old laptop is acceptable
    Marketing and sales HEAVILY relies on Microsoft deals/vouchers for gigs and is unable to obtain their own deals organically
    New management does not understand current consulting landscape, changes they wanted to implement have not been done fully and yet they announce new ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fully implement your plans before you attempt to implement anything new. The Cloud is not just some new FAD that will go away. Get a new internal IT team. Bring back Sam!

    Pros

    The BEST people, teamwork and camaraderie. Progressive vision for the company as we evolve with the cloud. Lots of new opportunities for professional growth in the coming years. Leadership continues to emphasis the importance of being part of the team through the work we do for our clients, and social and family events.

    Cons

    Standard benefits - nothing that stands out as a real differentiator from competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on pushing forward! Our company vision is exciting!

    I worked at Catapult Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Beer cart on Fridays, easy to maintain a work/life balance, awesome company parties, gained a lot of friends who feel the same way I do

    Cons

    Poor management. I second everything said by the "immature, failing company" review. Also disappointed that we were asked by our CEO and managers to give positive ratings on Best Places to Work every year instead of addressing how we really felt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to be managers.

    Pros

    The culture is still laid back. And for the most part you are treated like an adult.

    Cons

    Do to their incomplete transition with their merger the company has little room for spin up or time to let individuals develop. I was laid off after 3 short months!!

    I have been working at Catapult Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Catapult offers a great sense of stability. There are always new projects to work on and there is rarely any downtime. Catapult is very flexible with their employees. There are no time cards and you are able to work remotely fairly often.
    Catapult provided me with comprehensive training which has enabled me to become a stronger business professional. I sincerely look forward to coming to work each day and this is something that I have rarely experienced in my previous positions.

    Cons

    The only con that I can think of is that fact that Catapult seems to take on more work than the team can handle. It seems like our clients have to "get in line" because we don't have enough resources to support our current workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit new talent to lighten the load a little.
