    I have been working at Ellumen full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers, corporate culture, rewarding mission, and great compensation & benefits. It's a growing business but individual employees still have easy access to stakeholders. Leadership is knowledgeable and employees have opportunity to work across and learn several areas of business if they choose (operations, business development, proposals, execution)

    Cons

    As a small but growing business process is not always well defined so with growth comes some pain. Not everybody is cut out for an entrepreneurial environment and some employees need more structure to be successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication would be good relating to current endeavors, organizational goals, and corporate outlook.

    Pros

    Engineers/Developers/Testers/Analysts are amazing. The Ellumen Board Members are knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Ellumen Management and workflow is unorganized. It is hard for work-life balance. Management promises 40 hour work weeks but realistically employees see 45+ hours a week. Redundancy efforts on a weekly basis - directed down from management. Uncertainty over future of the company. Large employee turnover. Employees always talking about how management is unorganized and how much of the work is out of scope. When issues arise, management starts pointing fingers at employees to offset the blame.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Dedicated team of professionals with a results oriented culture. Employees have tremendous flexibility with respect to their schedule so long as the work product is quality and the customer's remain happy. The mission is to improve healthcare for veterans, the military, and their families so the work itself can be highly rewarding as well. Core office hours are 10AM- 3PM Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday... Wednesday is a remote work day for most of the team.

    Cons

    The company is growing so fast that individual work spaces can get cramped at the corporate HQ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan more team building events, we're growing so fast it's hard to keep track of all the new faces.

    Pros

    They are a government contractor in the Health care Industry. This had provide them with many government contracts in the past and in the future.

    Cons

    They needs to have a way to training new employee. This is one of the biggest reason why I was not able to excel in their company.
