Consultant

Professional Services Consultant (Current Employee)

I have been working at Advent Software full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat work life balance for the Company. As a consultant you are on the road almost every week, so its very hard to have a work life balance. The people there are great. Its a very fun atmosphere. They know how to have a good time. You wont find a mean person in the company.

ConsAs a consultant you travel every week. This will burn you out in about two years. Middle management is not very experienced. The salaries could be better, there are barely any raises and we just had layoffs, yet all of the executive this year got promoted. They need to adapt to client needs faster. There is not much career growth here. It seems like when you are in consulting, they don't like you to leave.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
