Bring your A Game and earn your own way

I have been working at Clarity Consulting full-time for more than 5 years

ProsClarity knows what they do well and the formula continues to succeed: Hire only bright, driven, talented consultants with personalities you’d actually enjoy having lunch with. They bring small, agile teams to some of the largest companies around and excel by delivering quality and creativity for the client. The goal is never a one-and-done-and-gone solution; success for Clarity means being committed to their clients’ success. That partnership approach makes for more rewarding relationships and a sense of belonging vs. standard consulting approaches.

Project teams are led by a minimal management hierarchy; managers are technical and come from the same career path as engineers. Most managers actively code along with the team. Team members wanting to succeed earn and take on more and more responsibilities as they evolve. Clarity is definitely a place where your drive and creativity are rewarded. Tenure is respected but means very little here; the best have opportunities to rise fairly quickly. It’s all about being proactive: become very solid in the day-to-day skills, find what interests you, find a way to make it valuation within the company and find yourself moving in the right direction here.

You won’t be coddled. Feedback is readily available from many sources but you do need to show initiative and ask for it. Nobody wants to mentor someone that isn't interested. Having a plan for your own development is respected and people are more than willing to help you reach your goals.

ConsThis is a service-based software consulting company focused on small team delivery of complex business problems. Employees need to be willing to perform many functions, need to come equipped with soft skills as well as technical talent, and need to be willing to adjust to clients’ work cultures (within reason). People unable to adapt, remain flexible, work within a team and learn new things will be frustrated by the daily work life. If you’re dead set on working with a particular technology or industry vertical this isn't the place for you.

Chicago-area travel is likely at some point but mileage is reimbursed. More extensive travel is sometimes available but only assigned on a volunteer basis.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
