    Pros

    Treat employees well, decent pay, good benefits, smart people, challenging projects; flexibility to manage work and personal appointments, midwestern values, mature, seasoned employees

    Cons

    Some skill sets are valued and rewarded more than others; Not a lot of upward mobility across all disciplines; bonus opportunities favor certain disciplines and skill sets over others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would like to see more localized leadership and reporting structure (leadership and supervision is very centralized in home office; leadership is not always reachable/available.

    Pros

    Fusion takes good care of their employees with how they are treated. In general our consultants do not have to travel. We do a lot of project work with some staff augmentation as well.

    Cons

    Fusion is not the quickest decision making company.

    Pros

    Fusion is a great company. The employees are treated as family: fairly and with their best interests at heart. Management is very open with information and willing to listen to suggestions. They offer as many flexible hours and time as is possible. They are also willing to make modify the environment to make you productive+comfortable..

    The "values" of Fusion are often touted, and management all through sales and delivery do actually live up to that.

    Salaries are above average.
    Benefits are always above average in offerings and below average in costs.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are limited.
    Vacation package is sparse.

    Pros

    This is a very healthy company. From the very top it is a positive, supportive, cooperative family of 500+ employees. The owners have a desire to grow not just to pad the coffers but because growing companies are healthy companies. I know a number of people who have left the fold for greener pastures only to return to this stable, capable, exciting environment. Fusion compensates very well and they do not expect or desire you to sacrifice your life for the company. On the contrary, they want your job and career to be a fulfilling part of a healthy life. This is a company made up of people who truly care about the employee and doing what's right for the customer!

    Cons

    Being consultants it is possible to feel isolated or disconnected from the company. This is of course overcomable with conscious efforts to engage and participate with the Fusion team. The employee participation of the health care premiums is significant but the company works hard to keep premiums from increasing and the benefits are excellent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Great benefits and great management you won't be disappointed. To add, management does a great job keeping you informed as to what to expect on your daily tasks.

    Also, provides you with good equipment to do the job if needed.

    Cons

    Flexibility towards core hours. You are required to be online during core hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel providing employees with more feedback on their performance would be a good idea just to let them know how they are doing. I feel it helps you to strengthen your skill set as well as give you a piece of mind.

    Pros

    Very low drama, politics-free zone; it allows people to focus and do their best work. Hands-on partners and very employee-centric leadership. It's a great place to work. At every turn, you know that the business is interested in the right outcomes -- for employees, for the clients they serve and for project results. The best organization I've ever been a part of.

    Cons

    Slow decision-making. A great deal of inertia. Lack of tools. We're not curing cancer here, but to say that Fusion is progressive is to insult the forward-thinking. This is a very measured, slow, 'steady as she goes' business. If you're a ladder climber that measures by the year, you're in the wrong company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The business wants to scale growth exponentially, but the lack of tools is a real impediment to progress. Mgmt. isn't in the weeds every day seeing the inefficiency and pain. They need to consider how the business will grow not just from a top line perspective, but also a bottom line by using technology as an enabler of efficiency.

    Engaged co-founders and excellent projects

    I have been working at Fusion Alliance full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The projects are staffed properly and led by experienced co-workers. By staffed properly, I refer to the existence of UX, data technologies, application dev, business analysts, QA, and other disciplines that work together for excellent results. Devs aren't responsible for UX and data technologists aren't responsible for requirement elicitation. Teamwork is respected, expected, and without drama. The company provides subscriptions to services such as Pluralsight and Lynda, and pays for certification tests.

    Cons

    Not all projects are really projects. Staff augmentation is part of the equation, and that sometimes means working on break/fix engagements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Formalize the mentor/senior roles to ensure onboarding and integration of human capital achieves goals.

    Pros

    Good ownership and steady consistent growth. Sales consistently increasing. Quarterly meetings beneficial and well planned.

    Cons

    Management can be too amenable and will not do the hard things required to create the best team environment. Management is nice, sometimes too nice. They seem to hope things will work out and put the fire out, rather than make the hard decision as soon as a tough situation arises.

    Pros

    Fusion walks the walk and talks the talk. They invest in people and not just bodies. Unlike other consulting/contracting firms, they don't hire people and then terminate them after they've been on the bench for two weeks.

    The people are very friendly. It is very much like a family atmosphere.

    Solid work/life balance - something that I haven't experienced with any other employer.

    Cons

    Tools - I feel like we're about five years behind everyone else. Processes - some of the processes are overkill.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with some of the best in the business. From colleagues to companies, there is a wide variety of learning and growing opportunities. Very tight and sometimes unrealistic deadlines, but this is to be expected in the world of consulting. At the end of the day the project work is what you make of it. A strong focus of teamwork and being proactive.

    Cons

    Management back in the day was very opinionated, but rumor on the streets is that this has changed for the better.
