Pros

Flexibility, Working from home, Work-Life Balance, Good first and third job in a career.

Raises/bonuses are not great, Some people who work more and do better work are often paid the same as people who do less work and are lazy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay good workers more money if you want them to stay with the company.

    Pros

    Good benefits: Stock Purchase Plan, 401(k), medical, dental
    Great environment with generally friendly, diverse group of people
    Work / Life balance is better than most other consulting firms

    Cons

    Salary is less than competitive, training is minimal at best, cross-project communication is terrible, scope of responsibility is far too small, very little chance of learning new skills while on an assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify the skill set of all employees, developers included. It seems as though teams such as AppDev, Test, and Training do not work well together.

    Pros

    Good people to work with. The commute isn't too bad for the region although it would be more of an attraction if it were closer to metro. The continued goal of trying to fit more people to work in the offices without expanding services & considering parking is short-sighted.

    Cons

    The budget is the most important consideration in decisions resulting in services to employees less than what they could be. The continued focus of distributing the back-office staffing to scattered offices where the pay is less results in a decrease in a feeling of teamwork and continuity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a mindset of investing in employees rather than a strict bottom-line. If you continue to insist on paying the least possible for employees, you cannot attract or retain a higher level of talent.

    Negative Outlook
