I have been working at SolutionStream full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Solution Stream is very supportive of flexible schedules and remote work to allow employees to make their families a priority.
Getting paid for hours over 40 is awesome!
Interesting projects and getting to work with some of the newest technologies

Cons

If you are working Staff Aug, there is a feeling of real disconnect from the rest of the company.
There is a complete lack of set process in the sales and development process which often leads to the sales dept making promises that development cant deliver on. On bigger projects, management doesnt have a clear path for how to manage the project.
No long term career path
Compensation is mediocre and other than PTO, benefits are too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out a way to make Staff Aug employees feel more engaged
Give me a reason to stay here long term
Make the mid level management team more meaningful
Develop some solid process so there is consistency in Solution Stream managed projects.

    I have been working at SolutionStream full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have been at SolutionStream over a year now. This is a well run consulting firm with over 100 senior level software engineers.

    A few of the culture events that they provide:
    Monthly Birthday BBQ
    Annual Lagoon Day for all immediate family (> 450 ppl)
    Crazy gift give away during the holidays, this is the time the company really goes all out to show it's thanks to their employees based on the amount of time you have been there. I think they gave over 20 big screen TV's alone!
    Holiday party for employee and significant other, typically in January after the craziness is over.
    Periodic Halo/game nights, where all the Big screen TV's in different rooms are linked and the battle begins.

    The facility is kept up and nice, they are currently out of space and looking for a building to add in downtown salt lake.

    You get paid for all the hours you work.

    They are honest

    Cons

    This is a pure consulting company, their is a chance that you will be put on an account that is not the most enjoyable and they might be quite critical and demanding. The good part is that it won't last forever, a new account is always around the corner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management are doing the best they can, this company runs very "hot" or all the developers are billing to clients all the time. Practice managers are developed from within but never really given any training on how to deal with the philological part of their responsibilities. Some training would be helpful.

    I have been working at SolutionStream full-time

    Pros

    The company attracts a top-notch caliber of employee and that makes it challenging and fun. There is a wide variety of projects to work on and you can get a lot of experience in a short time. There is a lot of client focus in making sure they are getting the best work so it is a pretty fast pace. The company does a lot of employee satisfaction and retention activities, probably more than most. The highlight is a crazy gift giveaway at Christmas time. Everybody gets cool gifts.

    Cons

    The company could help its employees with a career path better. More training and career opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to connect with all the employees, especially those who are onsite and not in the Lehi office regularly.
