    Pros

    The company has an amazing capacity for resilience and stability in the face of tough times and issues. In addition, they are all the good things about a small consulting firm; open, flexible and dynamic.

    Cons

    The downside for Chevo is the same for any small consulting company in that the opportunities are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain a small company culture that values employees, relationships and flexibility.


  2. Limited opportunity. Leadership is only interested in numbers and ratings

    Pros

    If you don't want to work hard or learn, then you can work here and sit back. If you want to stay in the same position for years, then stay here. If you like to stay under the radar and be ignored by leadership, then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    The leadership focuses on getting star ratings from customers without pleasing Chevo employees. Phil, the owner is not a people person and is afraid of his employees. Every year, he gives the same annual company presentation with the same jokes. Phil will not involve his employees in new contract development. He gives no opportunity to grow and does not listen to creative ideas. He just mills at his desk and has everything work like a small machine. I asked for more opportunity to grow and learn. Chevo did not take my request sincerely. When talking to others, I found no satisfied employees at Chevo.

    Advice to Management

    Find new, fresh, excited leadership. Let employees be involved in the company. Phil should let Zaina run the company, as she supposedly does on paper (just wants to claim Women's-Owned benefits).


  3. Not much money floating around for raises or promotions. Feeling stuck.

    Pros

    The company is very small. Phil (acts as the CEO) will know your name. The company meets often so that the employees can hear how the company is doing.

    Cons

    Every company meeting covers how Chevo didn't do very well and that we shouldn't expect raises. Because the company is small, you don't go anywhere, your resume doesn't grow. Also, this company is slated as a women-owned company...but Phil is the person running it, not his wife, Zaina.

    Advice to Management

    Promote internally. Let all of your employees help with proposals and other business. Use the talents that your employees have.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Good cultural mix, some team members are great to work with.

    Cons

    Clueless management team re:the federal market place. No BD personnel and Program Managers are not focused on clients' requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what type of company you want to be...determine your focus and hire capable managers.


  7. Typical small consulting company. You are hired for a position at a client and that client only

    Pros

    There are some really good employees to work with and if they are on your team it can be a good work environment. The pay is good and the benefits are reasonable for a small company.

    Cons

    Although there are several clients, there is almost no interaction across client project teams. Its also a typical small business so expect some politics at the home office. The home office pretty much only cares about hours billed so expect to work on Federal holidays.

    Pros

    Good entry level place to work to gain experience then leave. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    No career path. Too micro-managed Upper management likes to blame employees instead of taking responsibility for problems. Upper management team are all friends inside and outside work so there is a us and them feel to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't preach work and family balance when it is only offered to a few employees. Stop blaming employees who leave for all the mistakes. Get focused and treat it less like a temporary help firm and more like a consulting company.
