Pros

Good atmosphere, pretty young team in general. Currently one of the few companies out there that works on Microsoft Surface.

Cons

Stuck with Microsoft technologies with no sign of changes in sight.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As a consulting company, we need to stick to our own motto and "Do right by the client". Microsoft is not panacea.

    Interesting technology, inexperienced management.

    Pros

    There is a lot of variety in the kind of work available, though not all of it will always be interesting. The technology they work with tend to be cutting edge and interesting to technologists, but be warned that they'll have you believe all projects use "emerging technology" when many still use Java, C++, etc.

    There's terrific potential for growth if and only if you are put in the right project at the right time. The senior management is very young and they promote from within, but with many projects you'll be out of sight and out of mind from management the entire time.

    Cons

    The senior management is young and very inexperienced. They are not very good with communication and I feel they outright lie to employees with great frequency in order to keep people with the company. Colleagues on staff augmentation jobs were told they'd be a 1 year project, but then they slip into 2 and 3 year projects even though the employee wanted out after 1. All of the senior management come off as insincere used car salesmen and it's hard to trust what they say, they assume the employees know nothing about the current situation when they know more than management would like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would ask them to be sure to be as truthful to the employees as they can. Right now they are too obsessed with "perception management" to recognize the value in being honest and truthful to their employees. Punctuality and following up when promised in communication would also help, the lack of both leads to a feeling of disrespect from management to the consultants in the field.

    I have been working at Infusion full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    1. While some might be uncomfortable with the lack of organization and hierarchy it provides for great career opportunities. The path isn't laid out for you.

    2. People are really smart. In all areas and levels of the organization.

    3. Increased my salary by 50% over 4 years there.

    4. Privately held. If you have ever worked for a public company you know how stock price and shareholders and skew the strategic direction of the company. Not saying management is perfect but they are compassionate, real people.

    Cons

    1. It is consulting. The business isn't for everyone. Unpredicable clients, unrealistic deadlines, and always new technologies.

    2. Career path isn't clearly defined and takes an assertive and go-getter personality to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resist the temptation to become one of those large consulting firms that are everything to everyone. Find the niche around emerging technologies and innovation and stick to that strategy.
