    Pros

    From someone who stayed with the company beyond a couple of months after the acquisition, this is a great place to work. Prior to being acquired, the company was challenged in several areas - which is why we were acquired. Under the new leadership, the business evolved, investments made in sales, new delivery leadership, new consultants and the organization was infused with renewed energy and vigor. To summarize - strong management, great people and thought leadership, growth potential, continued investment in people and the business.

    Cons

    Not many. The meltdown in the economy hurt us as much as other consulting companies. Clients stopped spending money and we had to adjust to stay profitable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The economy appears to be poised for a turn-around. Keep doing what you are doing and we will be successful. Continued investment in sales and marketing should keep us ahead of the competition.

    Pros

    Opportunity to develop application skills.

    Cons

    Too much bench time for many of the consultants. Changing leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review compensation package of leading consulting firms and reward top performers accordingly.

    Not the same, all momentum gone

    I worked at Inforte

    Pros

    Some very smart people still there from the old days on both the CRM side and the BI side of the house.

    Cons

    All momentum is gone, lots of key people have left or been let go. Cash flow is probably suffering greatly. No niche left, services are all commodities now. No thought leadership to create a future leg to stand on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where to start. Find a new niche, get a couple quality salespeople. Try to hire some new consultants that have do not have a view of how far the company has fallen. Good luck...
