    Pros

    I first began working with them in early 2000s when they were still doing things like taking employees to horse races (ethically), sending huge christmas gifts and money gift cards. We had annual corporate meetings which included 5 star meals and afterwards beverages on the waterfront. The staff treated us like gold and very special. We were given semi annual bonuses. Now, they are much bigger so expect the same things from them as you would any other contracting company. The company still retained many of the original staff, so in that sense there is still that sense of warmth shown ocassionally.

    Cons

    Grew to fast and too big. Lost much of its personal touch . However it's still one of the better companies to work for since they retained many of the managers that were there since its inception and still give you that mom/pop store feeling. They pay well too. So don't low-ball yourself.

    Pros

    The people you work with are great and the atmosphere is friendly. Work / Life balance is respected better than at many other IT companies. If you have the initiative you can find a way to do what you like doing.

    Cons

    Unclear direction for the company and a lot of worrying about job security. Some managers work harder than others, and overall everyone is treated about the same, regardless of effort or outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better to employees about upcoming opportunities and contract status. Find better ways to reward success and hold those not contributing accountable.

    Good for the most part, but the contractor vs. government employee dynamic is maddening

    Pros

    Evolver provides many contract positions all over the United States and over seas.

    Cons

    Because Evolver mainly deals with contract positions, you can often find yourself out of a job if you are not willing to relocate when a contract ends.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
