    Pros

    Gain great marketing experience at small MSP/engagement agency with extensive book of business. Hands on training (as you would imagine at any agency) but direct interaction with VP/Partner and senior level leaders.

    Cons

    Like all MSP/agencies, senior level leaders may tend to lack clear understanding of the day-to-day work and work- life balance can take a hit. But comes with the territory.

    Advice to Management

    Balance the workforce...The company 2010-2013 tended to be top heavy with little mid-level, individual contributors to handle the bulk of the day-to-day. Hopefully this has been or is being addressed.


  2. mgmt is lost, big picture but bad execution

    Pros

    not much.. potential for company to grow if they can learn to run real projects and listen to those with real experience..

    Cons

    exec mgmt seems to be winging it. I continually hear of people taking credit for others to self promote. Staff that know how to do their jobs have to forget everything you learned about business and technology and follow what they do which is backwards . Claim to implement all these new processes and they are the first to skip process and just run projects without any real factoring of life cycle, resources, cost and time. Hired full staff of people before contracts were even signed, lost billable work due to no contract signed, watch some depts continue to hire while others who are very knowledgeable and need staff suffer 1 person takes alot of credit for work that was not theirs.. zero business ethics

    Advice to Management

    its not all from your side.. teams and Sr managers have more input and knowledge it appears but somehow lose to 1 person each time.
