Pros

Small company allows you to work with the same individuals on multiple projects. Allow you to work from home if the cliet agrees.

Cons

Not enough planned training. You may get thrown to the wolves if you want to advance. Not enough focus on the consultants. Look for RIF if you finish a project and there is not another project ready to start.

Advice to Management

Focus more on consutants life outside of work.

    Pros

    * Great People
    * Middle managment are easy to talk to
    * Work week is generally Mon-Thur and not required to come to the office on Fridays
    * IP is really good in some areas and it is very informative

    Cons

    * Constantly changing perfromance review process
    * Practice managment constantly changing because COO lacks committment to retaining talented people. In the COO's mind you are just a number that can be easily replaced despite the fact that organizationally we advocate talent management.
    * Organization does not practice what it preaches with regards to Best Practices

    Advice to Management

    Learn what talent managment and talent retention "really" mean.

    Pros

    Excellent project management. Every project I worked on finished on time and on budget, with high customer satisfaction. The project managers know what they are doing.

    Cons

    Poor marketing. Senior management (CEO, President) shifted strategy away from project work to subscriptions, leaving a lot of good business on the table. The senior folks were rigid when reviewing some very worthwhile projects, losing them to other companies even though the projects would have produced significant cash flow.

    Advice to Management

    Set up a structure to take advantage of the opportunities in project work.
