    Pros

    Great delivery people, very talented and dedicated to clients. Good lab and tools. Employee owned company with vesting after 6 years I think .
    If you are a talented delivery person in data center migration, storage, security you will probably do very well

    Cons

    Business line Management has very poor leadership skills, and you need to be in the " chosen" group to get your min. billable hours and good work assignments. Very little praise given to people who do the real work, and way to much to the old guys that poach clients, show up when the work is done and steal the rewards from those who delivered. Lastly management will not assign or hire the people specified in SOWs, or enough PMs to run projects, but just find bodies to fill roles...no bench here, they would rather over burden people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the sales commission to acct reps after product or project has been delivered, Not at booking as many projects never start and I would guess that 30-40% of project are under scoped and eat up all the margin plus more. That way you could pay you real workers the bonus they deserve.

    I worked at Forsythe Technology full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Pay for performance
    - Flexibility

    Cons

    - Too much management
    - Broken processes
    - Too many bandaids to just keep going
    - Lack of advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the number of managers and supervisors. This company has too many people with a leadership role. There was one Manager that had no one reporting to them - who were they managing? Too many people 1 employee needs to answer to, and yet no one listens to the feedback.
