    I have been working at Olenick full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary is competitive You get paid overtime People are smart and pleasant and very dedicated You can learn many new technologies based on who your client is

    Cons

    Your a consultant so once a project ends you do not know where your going next. Sometimes you feel like the only important thing you do is make money for the company. Depending on your client they sometimes treat you very much like a consultant, no regard for personal time. You may have to travel, you just might have to travel quite a bit. No career path when you consult. You may not like what your currently working on but you do not have much of a choice, it's not good to be on the bench.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employee's, improve on training, communication between employee's is an issue, need a better process for reviews.

    Advice to Management

    As the title states, olenick is not for everyone and that included me. I dont believe that I have to be a Brown-noser or kiss up to leadership/higher management for career advancement. The only way you can be successful with this company is by becoming best friends with leadership. You can give you 110 percent of yourself with hard work but never advance and that's unfortunate. Management really doesn't listen to your cares or concerns. As long as they are making money from the client, they couldn't care less about any concerns you may have. Listen to your employees.... Leverage effective communication... When you have you yearly review meetings with the entire company, try not to exclude your contractors outside of the parent company (gifts/celebrations)
