    Pros

    Great client base but slowly losing them
    Great Services team

    Cons

    Dishonest with employees and customers
    Do not invest in product - CEO and mgmt just make money from maintenance renewals
    Sales management has never sold a product in their careers so skills are very limited

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest to your employees
    Stop doing a CYA for all business decsions

    Pros

    Good in-work activities, clean office, decent management, some innovative ways to improve company culture

    Cons

    Terrible compensation, work-over-family approach, no benefits like company matching, strict sick day policy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please look more to companies like google for company culture. We attempt to improve our company culture, but I don't feel like we follow through.

    Pros

    Great growth opportunities for advancement especially when the company does acquisitions. Communication around company performance and goals and achievements is very empowering.

    Cons

    Don't really have any other than it is a real strong culture around performance and if you are one who like political based cultures than you should look elsewhere, might be a negative for some but is a real positive for me because I have worked in very political cultures and hated it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more acquisitions, the career growth is great for everyone that performs when we do these.

    Pros

    Seems to have a niche market, so competion is limited.

    Cons

    Turnaround and information sharing is sparse and limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrate your organization tighter. The loose coupling of the business is makes it difficult to be effective.

    I worked at Consona as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible to you working from home. Majority of UK team are really great and hard working. A few mistakes employing people in past couple of years ..

    Cons

    They use their own Archaic Onyx software for CRM! very painful. They fire people very quickly if the bottom line is not to there liking in the US. Poor management. they have a sales guy running EMEA right now.. rather than invest in someone who can lead the team. US have last say on everything and therefore very shortsighted. if you are on a complan will take about a year to get one! and you will never know what your being paid and for what! Marketing US based which does not help the UK at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing more $ in a management team for EMEA . Someone who can lead and how others will want to follow.

    I have been working at Consona

    Pros

    Because of the acquisitions it allows for individual growth. Great people to work with and always giving 100% for each other, if not for the company. Leadership that's been with the organization for along time, easy to communicate with because they know you.

    Cons

    Acquisitions also can cause disruption. Being owned by a VC has it's draw backs, but on the whole hasn't been too detrimental. Wages in some areas below current averages. It would be nice to see some benefits taken away because of the economy returned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through on plans and what you say. More visibility would be nice too.
