Pros

Has a history of being the best at what they do - clearly the place you want to work if you want to focus on agile development practices. More dedicated to learning and success for their customers than at other consulting firms I've worked for. Great colleagues, with a culture that's really committed to collaborative work and learning.

Cons

Poor benefits package, especially vacation, which is the worst of any company I'd worked for (5 years before you get more than 2 weeks). Vague salary structure. Unclear path for advancement. Difficulty in closing deals and a frequently changing strategy has led to an unstable work environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create clear, focused vision to for the future, and stick to it, so your customers and employees know what they can count on. Give people a clear understanding of how their contributions will be acknowledged and recognized.

    Pros

    1. They respect their employees.

    2. Microsoft is probably the major company in which they place their employees. Such employees are contracted as "v-" (vee-dash) vendors, which means they can work indefinitely as long as there is work, as opposed to most other contractors at Microsoft who are "a-" agency employees, who can work only for a year before they are required to take 100 days off.

    They also throw a yearly family picnic for everyone, which is probably very expensive. I worked for them for six years, and never heard anything negative about them; which I think is very significant.

    Cons

    Most of the work is contract; not FTE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are doing a great job for what they do!

    Pros

    SolutionsIQ allows it's team members to do what they need to in order to accomplish their jobs. They offer support, and treat people like professional adults. It's a refreshing environment to be in each day.

    Cons

    The culture can seem laid back, and could perhaps use a bit more drive...but really, there is a great amount of work life balance, and that is pretty important to a lot of individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only suggestion is to review the benefits, specifically the vacation/PTo policy in order to bring it up to industry standards.
