    I worked at Fieldglass full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - There are a few good people here that make it sort of worth while.
    - Pretty decent kitchen and free pop and coffee
    - Not bad holiday parties

    Cons

    - Lot of internal and petty politics in Professional Services
    - It's pretty obvious when you scratch a bit that they don't really care about employees, and everyone's out for themselves
    -Also, there's a click that sticks together and doesn't like new employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reform bad management practices, and incentive good management behavior. Sales and Marketing are strong teams, but professional services is terrible and needs reform

    I have been working at Fieldglass full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fieldglass has an amazing culture where their employees can work hard but have a lot of fun while doing it. It is amazing to be a part of a leader in our market that makes great choices for the employees.

    -Lots of free food and ways to socialize (after hour events, all employee meeting, free lunches).
    -The employees are typically very good at what they do. Benefits are awesome and affordable on all accounts.
    -Quick growth means lots of opportunities to learn new things!

    Cons

    No 401k match, but they are working on it. Quick growth means growing pains at times, but overall the management does their best to communicate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep the company culture alive!

    I have been working at Fieldglass full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Certain parts of the company still promote innovation and collaboration

    Cons

    The growth of the company seems to be overwhelming middle management. The company is slowly losing its leadership in the industry. Employee benefits are atrocious, lagging far behind other tech companies and it is getting worse. HR is unwilling or unable to address employee's real concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better define the management structure and the goals of each department. Improve collaboration between departments, identify trouble spots to prevent adversarial attitudes. Recapture the innovative spirit of the company lost during this growth spurt.

    I have been working at Fieldglass full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent dedication to company vision and culture. Fieldglass goes above and beyond to let employees know they are valued and appreciated. They expect hard work, but reward with plenty of opportunity to play hard too. New office spaces being created to handle company growth are very nice spaces to work in. Dedicated office managers who actually have employees in mind as well as keeping the company running well.

    Cons

    No 401k match is a bit behind the times, otherwise, I'd consider any other concerns part of any company which is growing at Fieldglass' pace. They're conscious of the issues and working to improve, which is more than you can say for a lot of companies in today's economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the efforts on sustaining the small company culture and feel!

    Pros

    Training, Certification, Pay just enough to keep you here.

    Cons

    Some of the worst management I have ever seen in the IT department. Lack of a team environment every man for himself. No 401K match, lousy health care coverage. They tend to promote folks that were just hired with little or no experience completely overlooking employees that have been with the company for years that deserve it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean Up the IT department by removing the lousy managers

    I worked at Fieldglass full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun people, lots of work to do, growing firm, can learn a lot in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    Salary is below market compared to other firms for the same position
    There is no 401K Match
    The health insurance plan options are not that great
    Bonuses are good but salary is low - still would not even out
    Not enough vacation days - you can't gain many more based on tenure either

    Resourcing for projects is difficult for them to execute; not all the needed parties will be available for the project but someone will carry the burden. Making it difficult/extremely stressful for some projects to be completely successful in allotted timelines.

    Lack of commitment from senior management to help employees grow professionally internally within the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to stop politicking around and probably needs a good shake up if the company wants to continue with positive growth for its employees.
