Pros

No travel, unique PTO policy, and stability. Centric has not laid off a FTE in it's history. There are opportunities to contribute to the growth of the company.

Cons

There is very little oversight, no training, and the coaching is weak at best. in my 3.5 years with the company, I have worked with one other FTE, and that was only for four months. My entire time with Centric has been as a solitary staff augmentation resource for different clients.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest and up front with candidates that we will be doing mostly staff aug work. Also, be honest that of the 400 employess you claim, half are independent contractors, not FTEs.

    Pros

    Centric is a great place to work, especially for experienced professionals that want to consult but do not want to travel. The people at Centric are as high quality as you will find in any Tier 1 consulting firm or in management at Fortune 500 companies.

    Cons

    Much of the work done at Centric is more like high quality staff augmentation than project work. Profit sharing is nice, but not as much as expected at more senior roles in comparison to industry. Similar issue with salary. Work / life balance is a big focus of Centric, but that is deteriorating as more business development and internal development work are being requested of staff. Some good people have left the company in the past few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out why people have left and fix those problems.
    Align salaries and bonus with similar roles in industry and at other firms.
    Get executive leaders back into business development so billable resources can focus more on delivering solutions and bringing in talent.
