I have been working at Burwood Group full-time for more than a year

Pros

Many company sponsored happy hours, parties
Twice yearly retreats
Mangement listens to concerns, acts upon
Very, very, very smart people, easily accessible
Company phone, AMEX, computer
Ability to work from home when appropriate

Cons

99% is not good enough; the strive for perfection causes some occassional issues on projects
Continuing education is encouraged, but hard to schedule in-between paying gigs. More priority would be nice.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the $$$ up to keep the talent here.
Continue allowing underperformers to find other employment.

    I have been working at Burwood Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Burwood Group maintains a small company feel while delivering to select/enterprise-class clients. Consultative approach is way ahead of other VARs/Integrators in the space, especially in healthcare, medical device, financial services and higher education. Burwood hires some of the best talent in the industry and is credible with our client partners around the US.

    Cons

    Can sometimes have a case of 100-itis; will not be bound by growth, which can be both positive and negative.

    I have been working at Burwood Group

    Pros

    Excellent benefits! (Annual Bonuses, Excellent 401K Matching program, home/work environment is amazing.)
    Great coworkers. Nearly everyone there is awesome to work with.

    Cons

    One word: Management.
    However this is really focused on the Sales and Business Development side, and specifically in areas outside of the flagship Chicago office. While working within the Chicago office, and with the corresponding team is bar none - there is a complete reversal of fortunes for those tasked with working in other "development" areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend at least 20% of your time and expertise in developing the areas outside of Chicago. You may also want to look at getting someone who's experienced in developing new regions to manage new areas of development. While loyalty is a great thing to have. It can tend to be a hinderance to business prospects.
