    I have been working at ESS Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Exciting cutting edge projects. Strong responsive Management Team. Great team environment. Fair compensation. It is a high end technical consulting company, not for commodity services.

    Cons

    Personal growth is constrained by size but is more focused on mentoring due to large project assignments. Could improve benefits package, more flexibility in PTO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the great "can do" responsive culture of the company, high quality of product, and teamwork environment.

    Pros

    Fantatic opportunities to work on a range of extremely challenging projects. Lots of flexibility to work in a way that is in the client's best interest as long as it makes good business sense.

    Cons

    Only two offices and limited opportunities to work at home, benefits are weak compared to others in industry. Limited training, few perks, but will support professional development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change is needed soon...or risk losing many of your best and brightest.

    Pros

    Small company that does large - complex projects. Provides lots of opportunity for those seeking to expand their horizons...

    Cons

    ~25% of technical staff sit on the "management team", which previously resulted in an inverted-pyramid of staff. Recently this trend has been changing, however it's slow going.

    I have been working at ESS Group

    Pros

    Interesting new project that are cutting edge in the indusrty and the chance to work with some very large, international companies throughout the country.

    Cons

    High turnover, often a short stop for most people due to lack of pay and efforts are often overlooked by managment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't low ball and cheat your employees out of the money that they deserve. There is a large sum of money being made and littel distribution of that money!!
