    Initially decent, but hasn't materialized as promised.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is respected.
    Benefits are comparable with most other consulting firms.
    Great place to work if you are starting a family.
    Since all the consultants are paid by the hour, part time is a major plus.
    Relatively no real air travel is required, but local commuting to various client sites can be grueling.
    A great bunch of people to work and socialize with when you get the chance.

    Cons

    Cliquish management tier.
    Growing stratification between hourly vs. salaried.
    Bonus process is not open or communicated to the consultants which leaves you wondering what is going on.
    Advancement is based on who you know and seniority rather than qualifications (like many companies).
    True feedback is rare.
    Seattle-centric.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If growth is the mantra, look outside company for qualified C level leadership.
    Realize that with no real management growth path for senior employees, the only way to advance is to leave.
    Provide published bonus plan to all employees that can be tracked and measured. This can be great tool to direct behaviour.
    Since Tim and Darren have left (virtually), the company direction seems confused with no real passion being communicated by the leadership.

    I have been working at Point B

    Pros

    Work life balance flexibility
    Variable, interesting project options
    Great reputation with clients
    Honest attempt to do the right thing for customers

    Cons

    Mono-culture - want to have DNA match for new hires
    Becoming more and more corporate, sadly
    Entrenched core set of people who have undue control

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Larger is not always better
    One size does not always fit all
    Don't lose the 'special sauce' which made it a great place to work
