    Pros

    Summit has a flexible schedule which works well if you have children. The Johnson County, Kansas location is easily accessible and there is parking right outside the building. They put on internal get-together's that are fun to participate in.

    Cons

    Annual reviews are anything but annual and the same can be said for salary adjustments. Benefits have taken a backwards slide for the past several years costing associates more out-of-pocket. Summit tends to chase their competition instead of committing to developing fresh and leading-edge turnkey strategies. They also sell what they have not developed which can create chaos and stress among associates who are committed to deliverables. Summit's executive leadership is in-cohesive, sending out mixed messages to associates about corporate direction, corporate values and corporate financial status. This same leadership openly distrusts their managers' decision-making abilities which not only leaves urgent issues (and clients) hanging but also creates an environment where non-exec management is not trusted by the associates they lead.

    Advice to Management

    Executive Leaders - Lead instead of micro-managing. Replace associates with associates instead of contractors and pay enough to get the best & brightest. Celebrate successes and allow shortcomings to create a path for learning and growth. The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it. —Theodore Roosevelt
