Pros

Base2 has an excellent culture. It is fun ("Vinyl Fridays", holiday parties, summer picnics, family events), collaborative, inclusive, respectful, and emphasizes work-live balance. Base2's product is its people and it treats it's people very well - much better than other companies I've worked for and with. Because Base2 supports a variety of clients and industries, every project is different and presents a unique challenge and an opportunity to learn and grow professionally - life is never boring. I also appreciate that the primary focus on customer satisfaction. Many companies say that but Base2 and it's people truly believe in it.

Cons

Consulting by nature means that you are embedded with the client helping them solve their most challenging problems. Most of your time is at the client site, which can make it harder to stay connected within your own company. Because the company is smaller, the opportunities to move into management roles are somewhat limited. While Base2 tries it's best to fit people with projects they enjoy, it is possible that you may occasionally be assigned to a project outside of your primary interests (the good news is that those projects never last forever).

    Pros

    Work life balance - Base2 strongly supports their employee's needs to have a life outside of the work place. There are times when more hours are required to meet deliverables, but it doesn't happen all the time.

    Culture - Base2 is very committed to having a culture where people want to work. From the little perks of an office espresso machine and free snacks and sodas, to encouraging social gatherings both in or out of the office. This keeps everyone more connected and people really care about one another.

    Accessible management - Base2 doesn't put a big emphasis on titles and upper management is very approachable. I wouldn't hesitate to ask for help from any of the leaders.

    Time-off benefits - Base2 recently increased paid vacation time to three weeks per year.

    Cons

    Base2 is getting bigger and with that comes growing pains such as increasing the infrastructure to accommodate all the new employees, (i.e. expanding office space - which is in the works, review operational processes and adjust as necessary to adapt to the company growth.

    Pros

    Management is very accessible and cares about feedback. People genuinely enjoy each others' company, For those of us in the office, the amenities rock: decor is top-notch, kitchen is fully stocked (three espresso machines! full fridge!) and the vinyl Fridays are the bomb. Efforts made to increase diversity.

    Cons

    Many folks out on-site and it's hard to help them feel part of our wonderful culture. Offsite events (bowling, movies, picnics) help and there's genuine effort being made to do more of same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to step out of the aerospace industry box and bring those smarts to clients in other industries--they're applicable! This may require some period of being uncomfortable, but that's how you grow.
