Pros

Great people with good clients. Management works hard to keep you working with clients of interest to you, and keep the work and technology interesting.

Cons

At times you wind up in bodyshop filler work. It is all contract based, so when there is nothing interesting to work on, you work on uninteresting things.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have no advice to offer to management. I have no advice to offer to management I have no advice to offer to management.

    Pros

    If you want a job where all you focus on is tech, Chariot is perfect. They treat employees very well, and excellent health care is provided without employee contribution. Pay is okay, but not extraordinary unless you're brought in at a high rate. They care deeply about their employees, and will sacrifice revenue to ensure everyone is happy. They do not lie or BS anyone - if you want an answer about something, they'll give it to you straight up. There is a very strong sense of camaraderie amongst employees, and a lot of knowledge sharing internally through lunch meetups, internal conferences, Philly ETE, etc. If you want to do something unusual, pitch it and you will likely be given the green light to give it a try even if it isn't directly business-driven.

    Cons

    There is no career path, no formal review process, etc. These can be pros if you just want to be a dev and not be hassled by "corporate" distractions. There is a high ratio of overhead to billable consultants, and that can weigh on employees who "carry" others who don't contribute directly to the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not everyone who works there wants to just code. There isn't an outlet for those who want to grow professionally beyond just tech. That may hurt retention of individuals who want to take on larger roles in the firm. Otherwise, management is made up of good people who truly care about their employees, and that is special.
