    Have a strategic direction you are aiming for

    Pros

    Work from home, paid overtime at half your rate

    Cons

    On the managed services side, there is no vision. Clients do not renew their contracts very often for always the same reasons but management is totally ignorant to those reasons. Clients complain that the consultants are not senior enough, that there are not enough people supporting the accounts and Glasshouse management is not paying attention to the clients until the contract renewal is up or a bill is to be paid.

    Advice to Management

    Don't dumb down the organization intentionally. Your franchise is the quality of your consultants but yet you make the experienced ones leave or lay them off. The entire management services department depends on a few people who are way underpaid for the amount of hours they work.
