    I have been working at Improving Enterprises full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people are simply the cream of the crop. Smart, friendly, ambitious, caring, and driven. The work is bleeding-edge and opportunities abound if you want to work on fun/cool things.

    Cons

    Compensation is less than industry standard. The maximum for a Principal Consultant is $120K. The kind of talent Improving has is worth much more. Lots of driving!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The perception of management is that they do not have the employees' future in mind and that they only care about making more and more money by putting more and more bodies in seats. The organization is very flat (but getting better). Management could do better by developing career plans for each full-time employee.

    It's been short, but sweet, and focused on the technology areas that I enjoy

    I have been working at Improving Enterprises

    Pros

    Improving is a laid-back atmosphere. Low pressure, nice people, that focus on technology. They host a huge number of user groups every month, which is a great way to stay plugged-in. Members in Dallas meet every 3rd Thursday to stay in touch, play ping-pong, Kinetix and drink beer from the 2 Keggirators they have in the office. Overall a fairly fun place to work.

    Cons

    Improving is primarily a staffing firm, so sometimes it feels a bit frustrating to see the world as just one more technology person. It'd be nice to have a mind-set of being consultative in nature, and able to show-off some thought-leadership in particular areas, and not just be good at general technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a strong Agile sense about the company, only there seems to remain some dogma about how to go about it. I've always thought of agile as something you are, and not something you do. It's a personal thing, a mental thing. Improving has a different tack on that, and I wonder if maybe it would be better to focus on adaptation, rather than following some set of rules. Might provide even more innovation and creativity than you already experience.
