    I have been working at Fieldglass full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Finally, a company who understands project management and has both the foundation and best practices in place to allow their Project Managers to thrive. Competitive salary, positive, optimistic professional environment. They do a lot of the little things to let their employees know they care.

    Cons

    Recently acquired by SAP there's some uncertainty about what this means to the fieldglass culture long-term. While they do offer a paid vacations benefit their vacation plan is not as competitive as other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work closely with your direct reports to continue to foster the positive fieldglass environment.

    Pros

    Free Drinks. Very casual. Promotes from within generally.

    Cons

    Low pay. Doesn't match 401Ks. And after a while you realize management doesn't care about you really, which became even more prevalent with the SAP acquisition. Nobody knows what's going on there after the purchase. Nobody knows if they're going to hire 300 more people, fire 300 using arbitrary rules that were instituted after the acquisition rather than give severance and down size, or really anything. I mean some people don't even know what their official title is anymore. Also there's this really passive aggressive war between Professional Services and Account Services, which just stifles collaboration and fixing the stuff that's wrong.

    Advice to Management

    I dunno. Reevaluate your lives and decide if you want to be corporate bureaucrats for a giant German company who's CEO has a quote from Bono on the back of his ghost written biography? Or, like, treat people better? Maybe try not instituting rules, then dropping them, then adding new ones seemingly monthly? Maybe don't have managers passive aggressively fight over people who have been promoted or moved to a different department.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Fieldglass full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great minds in most areas of the company. A CEO who is approachable and fair, and has great vision. Growth opportunities in some areas.

    Cons

    The culture is cold and robotic...almost dystopian. Paranoia and secrecy are rampant. The CEO is too mild of a personality to elicit change in low performing areas of the company. Professional Services management is way beyond its depth, and there is no operational backbone to adjust.

    Advice to Management

    "Past Performance is not an indicator of future results."

    Pros

    Such a great environment. Great people. Innovative thinking. Product I believe in.

    Cons

    Recently purchased by SAP which has a lot of unanswered questions about the future and the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better. There is a lot of uncertainty and it is only fueled by the lack of communication from leadership.

    I worked at Fieldglass part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Office culture is unlike any other company I've worked at. The people make the company what it is. Room for growth within the company as well.

    Cons

    Still growing, so that means the company's not very well-known outside of the software / staffing industry
