Pros

Leader in Mobile Business Intelligence software. iPhones and iPads for most employees.

Cons

As with any consulting service company, too much is dependent on the billable revenue you bring in even with some important factors are out of your control like bill rate, project hour estimates etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep pushing for mobile.

    Pros

    Training is really good. Big pro that training is upfront prior to starting role full time.

    Cons

    Can be a gamble with the hiring and training process, as passing all training courses is condition of employment. If you don't pass, your employment is terminated, which can be hard if you have a family and left previous company.

    Pros

    - A team made of very intelligent and friendly people.
    - Great Technology.
    - You will be exposed to a lot of challenges, different people and get to travel.

    Cons

    - Negotiate well your first salary... because it won't get much better.
    - You are a service to be sold. So don't expect anyone to be concerned about your profesional growth, keep your eyes open, learn and don't stay too long....
    - You will spend about 2 or 3 hours per year talking to your manager, so the feedback you will get from him is limited, to say the least.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are not motivated, 50% is exhausted for trying to get a well deserved raise or promotion and everyone playing games.
    A good part of why the customers buy services it's because we work our butts off to deliver good results, so just give us what is fair and make it transparent... or people will keep leaving.
