I have been working at Clarity Consulting full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Clarity is a team of really talented thought leaders, developers and designers. Everyone is really passionate about what they do, from the consultants to the partners. There is a great office culture, monthly happy hours and other social and volunteer outtings. Clarity has been steadily growing year over year for the past 18 years - they have amazing clients and select the most cutting edge projects to work on.

Cons

Clarity asks that all their consultants be well-rounded and well-versed on the Microsoft stack. You need to be flexible and be able to wear multiple hats at times.

    Pros

    Very smart & competent people, cool projects, latest tech, stable, I have a life outside work, no micromanagement, good culture, learn a lot, good salary/benefits, company events, friendly down to earth people.

    Cons

    As a consultant you can be deployed in the burbs, not just in the fancy office downtown. Commute can be an hour long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep running a great/quality shop, don't become a large company. People here love the small company feel, values, knowing everyone. Most of us dont want to work for a publicly traded company and be lost in the non-sense politics.

    Pros

    Clarity Consulting is a very down-to-earth technology company. Management all have current technical expertise, and pay and advancement are very merit-based. The executives have an open-door attitude and are always willing to listen to feedback and ideas from employees and respond to them seriously.

    It's a great place for people who love technology, have business skills, and are willing to take a lot of initiative and be responsible for their own career growth. Each employee gets a budget for training, tech books, equipment, etc. to use as they see fit. Because it's still a fairly small company, any employee has the potential to make a big difference in the company.

    Work-life balance is taken very seriously and is less of a problem than at many other consulting firms, so it's a great place for people who like professional services work but have families and can't hop on a plane every week or spend 70 hours in the office.

    Cons

    If you're looking for lots of structured training and mentoring, or you need a lot of active management to get your work done well, Clarity Consulting is not the right place for you. To grow your career at the company, you really need to speak up about what you think you can do for the company and how you can be more valuable. Most managers and executives are fairly hands-off although they are very willing to help and give feedback if you ask for it. Because it's a small company, some of the structure and policy you would find at a larger company is absent. On the flip side, if you are comfortable with this it's a great opportunity to try things out for yourself.
