Windward Consulting - mix of good and not-so-good.

Consultant (Former Employee)
Herndon, VA

ProsWindward are primarily an IBM NetCool shop (though this may be changing) but they did have a good educational system for helping new employees. They also provided a course on ITIL but there wasn't many opportunities to use it. There wasn't that much distant travel (in my experience) and, in some cases, you could work from home (though this was not common).
They do have some very professional, experienced and helpful employees and all aer willing to help with problems that you may encounter.

ConsWindward tend to hire and fire on a regular basis (but this may be standard for other consulting companies). Paid time-off (PTO) was reduced from 20 days to 10 days though this only affects new employees - old timers get to keep the 20 day allocation. Also, any accrued PTO is not paid when you leave the company (voluntarily or involuntarily).
A lot of the good staff have already left since I joined.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow people to buy/sell vacation time and to get paid for their vacation when they leave.
