    A Company with a Vision for Greatness

    Business Intelligence Associate (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsThe atmosphere within this company is one of working closely together, sharing ideas (that are actually taken seriously by the executive team), hard working individuals who care about their company, and a ton of fun thrown in.

    CorSource understands that we're all human, life happens, and work hard to make this a job/working environment that feels more like a family. I've never felt like a cog in a huge machine here, rather an innovator who's ideas and experience are respected and welcomed.

    The executive team is incredibly good at giving praise for successes on a company wide level.

    They have a "Fun Committee" and make sure to host picnics, happy hours, miniature golfing, watching the World Cup at work, and doing monthly lunches for all the employees.

    This is a great company to work for if you're just getting started in the technology industry as they will put the time and effort into making you great, if you show them you want it.

    Cons- CorSource is finally getting streamlined processes into place, so things can get a little bumpy from time to time.
    - They are a little slow on getting the appropriate training for their employees. You have to consistently push for some of the training tools that you might need.
    - There is a little back and forth on what is allowed and what isn't (i.e. what's frowned upon)
    - There is some unequal treatment of employees (i.e. some can do no wrong in the executive teams eyes - but that's to be expected, I've never experienced a company that doesn't play favorites)

    Advice to Senior Management- Work harder to train your employees. If you expect greatness, help lay the path for them by giving them the appropriate tools.
    - When bonuses/commissions are given as incentive, provide an actual laid out plan for how each employee can attain these goals
    - Make sure there are 6 month, 1 year, etc. reviews so that employees can have a chance at a raise in salary

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A company with potential but may not be fully aware of their vulnerability to stay a float.

    Accounting (Former Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsGreat atmosphere, open space,remodeled contempary,free soda,close to food carts,restaurants,everything - it's downtown edge of Pearl district. Trendy. Nice friendly people,not micro managed.

    ConsNo parking,little training,lack of communication between management & employees,no breaks-people barely take a lunch or end up eating at their desk while continue working. Their are no processes in place. Operates like a start up company. Management is out of touch in regards to understanding what employees actually do or what it takes to do the job. If you don't have a photographic memory, & can't learn a complex detailed job in a couple of days, I wouldn't advise attempting to work there. There is turn over of long term employees. To me this raises a red flag. Environment in the office is "very quiet". You can hear a pin drop across the room.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet in writing processes from permanent employees before they leave. Expect to give new employees a decent grace period to learn the job; (like more than a couple of days). Communicate. Include employees in meetings that are pertinent to the job & department. Get feedback from new employees and ones that are leaving. Listen.
    Cross train. Establish procedures.

    Over-Promise, Under-Deliver

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat office space downtown, flexibility to work from home, interesting clients, growing consulting team. Majority of employees are good people, smart and decent.

    ConsManagement's pressure on making sales makes delivery impossible because of promises made to customers or vendors. Near-daily ethical decisions. Management is self-centered and will say whatever it takes to win over the client or recruit the emaployee, even if its not completely true. Accounting/finance and payroll seem disorganized and make frequent mistakes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI was warned about the "transition" the company is going through, but when can we expect some consistency??

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Nice people, great office in a good industry (software consulting, development and staffing.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLocal ownership that makes the everyday work experience enjoyable. Flat management structure where new ideas are capable of being implemented quickly. Fun social events and a sense of team. Vietnamese team is awesome!

    ConsStill trying to improve their value proposition to clients in a very competitive market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the focus on culture development and differentiation.

    Appeared great from the outside; Sweatshop inside

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Beaverton, OR

    ProsAppears great from the outside
    Promise of working from home
    Claim to value the opinions of staff

    ConsPeople are expected to work long hours, 365 days if necessary, but for no additional pay
    They throw people into jobs until they burn out, then toss them out
    Senior management is rife with nepotism, narcissism, and leading by squeezing the life out of people
    Treat US and offshore workers equally badly; none but a chosen few are empowered
    100% money driven

    Advice to Senior ManagementRead some books about the value of happy employees and the value of human capital
    Get some training in how to lead by empowering people, rather than by control and fear

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A Company that is committed to being the best and is going places

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe reason why I love my job is because of the people and passion they have to be successful. There have been a lot of change in the past year and having been with the company for a while it is refreshing and makes me want to come to work and help us reach our goals. The new team members are great and bring a lot of energy. Our new office is in a fantastic location downtown, with a fun space, fostering collaboration and that makes working fun! Hey does your office have a relaxation room with a massage chair, with direct tv, and XM radio throughout the office? MWith all the challenges in the market place I know that we have a team the is committed to being successful and values what I have to offer to help us achieve our goals and see us continue our growth.

    ConsWork can be work and thus there are good time and challenging times.

    Seemed great, then things changed.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCorSource, aka: ProDX, is a privately owned company that does a lot of Government Contract work around Portland, OR. Salary is nice and some of the recruiters work well for you. HR seems to have their head together, although there are occasionally problems, as with any company.

    They do occasionally take groups of employees out to eat to catch up on what's going on and the gossip within the company.

    ConsThe company does not fight for you, once you've been hired - plain and simple. They just about refuse to work with current employees that wish to renegotiate contracts or rates. They'll tell you it will take months to renegotiate rates, when it can actually take days. If you have a new offer at a new company, but wish to let your current company match it - expect to be given the cold shoulder with no attempt to keep you. They are more concerned about their bottom line than anything else.

    Lastly, while the company claims things are fine, the office is like a ghost town and recruiters seem to be leaving or disappearing. This may be in-tune with the fact that they are now outsourcing recruiters from another country.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFight for us and we'll fight to stay with clients. Lack of attention, training options and the cold shoulder you give employees makes for a bad environment overall. Outsourcing states how the values and financials are going within the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
