Pros

Flex and comp time, friendly people, colleagial environment, work hours are not too bad, generous vacation policy, nice location. Reasonable salary at very manageable hours. Good compensation package (dental, medical). Flexible cultur e.

Cons

lack of career path, most clients are in Government, need to expand to other commercial sectors such as financial services, tele com, health care, transportation. Sell themselves as 'business' consulting but in reality they only do IT consulting. Lack of positioning agains competitors such as accenture or kpmg. Jobs sometimes are not challenging. Management lack of focus on how to position itself as a value added partner.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be strategic. Expand to other industries that are less dependent on the government sector

    Pros

    Very good people in most cases. Traveling is fun for the first 2 years. Flexible in work locations. Health and dental benefits are good just like most companies out there. Company matches stock options up to a certain percentage. Salary is only good out of college.

    Cons

    Salary reviews are worthless since you will only get the minimum which is very embarrassing to even talk about. Bonus are very rare and if you ever get one its not worth mentioning. Hard work is only rewarded in words. Management needs to fight more for the well being of there employees. Traveling becomes a pain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to fulfill there promises. Reward hard work with better bonus's and salaries.

    Pros

    some of the co-workers. It depends on what office you work in. Canadian employees are treated great, the US employees, not so much.

    Cons

    Unless you want to be stuck outsourcing your entire life, forget it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop looking for the $50 million contract, and get your foot in the door with people at $500K - $2M. Then, if you prove yourself, maybe you'll land that bigger contract.
