Good stepping stone

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Genesis10 full-time for more than a year

ProsSome smaller offices with a good opportunity to learn, and employees are able to use their talents toward their roles. For the most part, efforts are appreciated and rewarded. Very flexible working culture and knowledgeable staff. Great programs to get in with reputable clients for new graduates or those who are looking for experience to move their careers.

ConsPay could be better and staff are underutilized at times. Give employees more growth opportunities so they don't leave.

The best consulting firm in the Twin Cities/MN!

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at Genesis10 as a contractor for more than a year

ProsOutstanding recruiters! Took time to get to know me and what I was looking for. Definitely a unique experience from most other staffing firms in MN.

ConsWould love to see even more companies - would work with them every time if I could.
They do hourly consulting only for PMs so if you're new to consulting, this might be too much risk to take on initially.

Good transition job, but nothing that is long-term.

Technical Project Manager (Current Employee)
Troy, MI

I have been working at Genesis10 full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPay is decent. Clean work conditions.

ConsBenefits are terrible. Little to no concern for employees. You are little more than a way for the company to make more money.

Advice to Senior ManagementSince the employees are your only way to make money more effort should be made to take care of your only asset.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great at early stage

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at Genesis10 as a contractor for more than 3 years

Pros-2wk Training program upon first hire
-Weekly support at client site (at least when I first started)
-Monthly lunch w/ consultants at client (at least when I first started)
-Opportunities to author training material
-Lunch and Learn sessions to build awareness of skills

Cons-Drop off in support as time with company grows
-Difficulty starting at clients with reputation - excessively need to re-make yourself to get back where you were with previous client
-Staff augmentation sold as management consulting model - inserted into client project team, not consulting firm team. Firm engagement can be low to nonexistent as a result.
-Difficulty contributing to strategic vision at client and no encouraged mechanism for relaying client vision back to G10.
-Allow consultants to review relationship/delivery managers/directors. They make or break our experience at the client. All of my positive support feedback is based on work with one relationship manager, while negative feedback is associated with a particularly disengaged relationship manager. Feeling that G10 is not results-oriented with relationship manager.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep focus on budding consultant careers. Regular touchbases 'just because' go a long way to ensuring consultants offer insight into opportunities/challenges at client. See this as a miss both for training/development and client relationship. Work on the Associate to Consultant level transition.

Last resort in a bad job market

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Milwaukee, WI

I have been working at Genesis10 as a contractor for more than a year

ProsIf you want a temporary position with no commitment or strings then contracting is the way to go. Gen10 has some good contacts in this market.

ConsNo benefits and low pay. Not at all engaged with the employee or contracting client. Gen10 has not asked the client for feedback on me in the two years I've been in my job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
