I have been working at Utopia as a contractor (more than 5 years)

Pros

Hard working team members, great company vision, cutting edge solutions, great learning environment. Very visionary company, driven mostly by the caliber of people who work there. Great place to work if you're focused and passionate about master data solutions for high-end enterprise clients around the globe. Some excellent Managers, and good ability to be heard, since the company is still small enough that all our opinions are valued (it doesn't mean that everything that is suggested is implemented of course, but the company does listen!). Quite cutting edge around master data too, with some great services and in-house development teams to keep the delivery teams on task and at the forefront of what is best for our clients.

Cons

Strategic decisions have sometimes seemed to shift 'mid flow' which can be frustrating. Since the company is global, but still quite small, people need to be adaptable to sometimes unusual working hours to provide support to team members not in their timezone (not an issue for me, but it can be for some).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When you make a decision, think it through more carefully before making it public knowledge, and then stick with it and move forward more proactively and aggressively so that timelines are not delayed and the needle 'moves' quicker!

    I worked at Utopia as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    DISCLAIMER: This was my experience a few years ago. On with the review: They are friendly. Free lunch and board.

    Cons

    DISCLAIMER: This was my experience a few years ago. Perhaps things have changed. The Instructor has no discernible teaching skills. The program pretty much set you up to fail. You are in a room doing a whole lot of nothing. Then without warning they let go a ton of people. Not very professional way to handle things and whatever the execs are lead to believe is not accurate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The truth goes a long way. Maintain communication and provide honest feedback. Don't disrupt peoples lives only to have them reap no benefits.

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

    Pros

    The company has some very smart people who want to make a difference and take the company to the next level.

    Cons

    They are prevented from doing this because of the familial relationships that exist within the company. The company has lost credibility with SAP, their largest partner. What is promised to customers oftentimes cannot be delivered. Marketing solutions for which core competencies or solid solutions do not exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be realistic about what it takes to grow a company. Understand the sales cycle and do not over promise customers and under-deliver. Be honest with your board of directors. Follow through.
