Pros

The flexibility in the job and work life balance is excellent.
People are great to work with and the facilities are very nice.

Cons

The flat structure and the lack of transparency of the organisation leaves a lot of people in the dark regarding the direction of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More open communication on the direction of the company.
Listen better to the feedback of the staff and act on it.
Do not change peoples roles before it is clear what the consequences are and what their role exactly is going to be.

    I worked at Professional Advantage full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great customer base, great consulting staff, great upper management, free non-alcoholic drinks, free month end alcoholic drinks and appies, free tuition

    Cons

    Middle management is horrible and has no idea what would drive the company to the 'next level'. Most of them are there going through the motions because they were there when the company was growing, but now that the company has peaked in growth, no new ideas to bring to the table.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less middle management or bring in some new people!

    I worked at Professional Advantage full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lean operation, honest business, very open communication. Limited politics, very reasonable and lean management, good support. Pretty flexible when it comes to personal/family commitments. "Keep your clients happy" attitude. *Really* good colleagues, who are always willing to help each-other out.

    Cons

    Pretty much no corporate structure to speak of (this is not exactly a con just something to be weary of). No training, limited perks, and for consultants the work-life balance is a little off (but hey, they're consultants, and it's not too bad). Considering all this, the pay could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A yearly review is not enough. Consultants need more management and a bit less "putting out the fires" when the KPIs drop. Hiring someone approachable (i.e. who isn't the director!) to do quarterly reviews, would make for more successful on-boarding and a happier employer. (by the time this is read, most likely this issue has already been fixed.)
