A company in transition

Technical Lead (Former Employee) Boston, MA

Pros- If you put in the work, you will get the recognition and advancement
- Culture promotes good camaraderie among employees
- If staffed right, one can get exposure to a ton of different projects
- Healthy process for project reviews and year-end 360 reviews gives everyone the chance to get feedback from their co-workers

Cons- Company is transitioning; it's in the middle of developing a product line to supplement the professional services group. To date, there are no known stories of consulting companies making a successful switch to a product company
- Product line is being developed in Romania for cost reasons, so if you like products more than consulting and you are in the US, you are out-of-luck unless you want to move to Bucharest
- Clear and unfortunate cultural separation between delivery group and senior management

Advice to Senior Management- Leadership team could be more transparent about their decision making process
- Product development might be better off being done out of the US despite the higher labor costs: better communication and faster, more agile turnaround from a dedicated US team may yield faster results with higher quality and faster ROI. Delivery group proximity to product group may also yield better product assimilation with better implementation results and higher customer satisfaction and retention.
