    Pros

    The people are super bright and are motivated to continue learning and collaborate on gaining exposure to new technologies. Great training opportunity and strong name in the cloud space. Proud to say I work at Acumen Solutions.

    Cons

    You can't just fly under the radar if you want to move up. People that are well known and get their name out there do well. Come in, knock it out of the ball park, and you'll get noticed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More acknowledgement to internal teams as well as consulting side teams, especially for rewards at All Hands Meetings and internal communications.

    Good boutique IT/Salesforce consulting firm

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in McLean, VA
    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in McLean, VA

    I have been working at Acumen Solutions

    Pros

    Work life balance - If you're good you will get noticed - Growth potential - Friendly people - Some good clients

    Cons

    Overall quality of firm's consultants has decreased - Lack of true differentiation strategy - Changing corporate strategy that doesn't match the companies core competencies - Poor marketing strategy - Lack of a dedicated sales force or management involvement in account reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the core competencies of the firm. The same competencies that brought the firm from $1-50M in revenue. Salesforce is a good tool and its important to be thought leaders in the industry, but need to keep the eye on the prize. Structure will follow strategy, determine the best course of action and build a structure before you announce a strategy.
