Pros

My peers are excellent. They are intelligent and very professional. The only good thing about working in the Professional Services department is the opportunity to work with such wonderful consultants who are just brilliant.

Cons

- Weak Management - Unnecessary power play by mid-level managers - Mistreatment of consultants by mid-level managers - Senior management not addressing the issues - Double standards - Not very many opportunities for growth even for the brilliant consultants

Advice to Management

Listen to the employees because you have a great bunch of resources in your team before it's too late. Take action on mid-level manager(s) who are not good leaders and are a source for unpleasant and unprofessional work environment. Reduce the hierarchial barriers and honestly implement the open-door policy instead of talking about it in theory.

    Pros

    The atmosphere is great, the commute is easy, the job is inspiring, you lead your own projects but work closely with other, a great mix of senior and junior developers, an all around great place to work

    Cons

    Although they've made great strides these past couple years, they are still Oracle centric and need to move toward the SAP mentality that is thriving in Europe.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the value of pursuing certain projects over others because the end result may not be as financially beneficial as originally conceived.

    Pros

    Great consultants Great knowledge sharing in consulting Strong benefits Fun social gatherings (pre-buyout) As stated in the other reviews. Many of the people in the consulting group are extremely professional and willing to assist others.

    Cons

    High expectations in terms of hours working on projects Mid-level management (many of them - but not all) without any management skills or training Double standards No 3rd party training opportunities The mid-level management team has very little management training. Management publicly made jokes about the fact that they do a poor job handling performance reviews in a timely fashion. Any communication with R&D and support is extremely difficult.

    Advice to Management

    They should send the project management and solution architecture team to management training.
