    Pros

    You can gain experience as in any other company.
    Some people are really nice and fun to work with.
    You get the chance to work with well known clients.

    Cons

    Developers working crazy hours to deliver projects on time is the only solution to all problems (yes, that is expected, no that doesn't get you bonuses)
    Management is incompetent, they do not know good practices and they have really poor people/leading/managing skills.
    The company specializes in repeating bad practices.
    Smart people tend to quit
    Delivery is ... troubled
    All those negative reviews are so very true

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read some books on how not to demotivate employees
    Say no to manipulation
    Stop wasting time on constant meetings/calls about everything and nothing

    I worked at Infusion

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, learning opportunities, access to recent technologies, interesting projects, good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Lack of direction, mediocre director - level employees, sloppy implementations, no pride in their work (see "sloppy implementations")

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to do one thing, and do it really well. Make no excuses, perfect your craft, and see what happens.

    Interesting values/culture

    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor
    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

    I worked at Infusion as a contractor

    Pros

    Good opportunities to work in great companies and the pay is really good/better than market. Management has a desire to "wow" the client and deliver product.

    Cons

    Great pay comes at a cost. Questionable culture with unprofessional language and behavior. Management supports and contributes to a toxic culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider training on professionalism.

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Infusion full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Nice and competent coworkers

    Cons

    - Excruciating hours. They allocate resources at over 80 hours and think nothing of it
    - No job descriptions or documented career path
    - No bench - which makes it difficult when clients want to hire them for a project - they have to scurry around and try to find new hires
    - No training/career growth - unlike most consulting firms that require you to do 60 hours of training per year to keep up with changing technology
    - Management is too busy to schedule interviews in a timely fashion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bench time is not bad. Use it for employee training and to build internal tools and document internal processes - you desperately need both of those things.

    I have been working at Infusion full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    1. While some might be uncomfortable with the lack of organization and hierarchy it provides for great career opportunities. The path isn't laid out for you.

    2. People are really smart. In all areas and levels of the organization.

    3. Increased my salary by 50% over 4 years there.

    4. Privately held. If you have ever worked for a public company you know how stock price and shareholders and skew the strategic direction of the company. Not saying management is perfect but they are compassionate, real people.

    Cons

    1. It is consulting. The business isn't for everyone. Unpredicable clients, unrealistic deadlines, and always new technologies.

    2. Career path isn't clearly defined and takes an assertive and go-getter personality to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resist the temptation to become one of those large consulting firms that are everything to everyone. Find the niche around emerging technologies and innovation and stick to that strategy.

    A amazing place to contribute, grow and be recognized

    I have been working at Infusion full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extremely talented group of professionals. Constant flow of great company events. Ownership and executives who truly care about the company and all the employees. Exciting clients and projects. Global opportunities to grow your career and explore new ventures. Amazing company grow that the ownership invests back in the company as opposed to other companies I worked at where the profits were taken out for the owner's personal use.

    Cons

    I have not experienced any real negatives at the Infusion.

    Pros

    Amazing, smart people who are passionate about their work and fun to be around. Good office culture. It feels like a family, you can unwind with a beer on a Friday afternoon or sit and have lunch with whoever is around. People are friendly and seem genuinely happy to be here.

    Company invests in cool training and offsite team building events such as Sleepless, Global Coding Contest and Learning by the Lake (to name a few).

    If you work hard and perform well, you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    Growing rapidly so still trying to figure out its structure and processes need to be streamlined. This is not the place for you if you can't handle a little bit of imperfection and chaos. On the flip side, there is a lot of opportunity to contribute your ideas to a changing and growing company.

    The NYO is a little broken up with consultants working at various client sites and the addition of a second home office. However Infusion has a lot of events (social, tech nights, lunch and learns, book clubs, staff meetings) so there is opportunity to interact with people who you don't see every day.

    Pros

    Fantastic people, extremely intelligent and likable people, and excellent opportunities for growth. Not a lot of hand holding, but lots of support from management to expand and explore your role. They treat their employees to lots of food and events.

    Cons

    Fast paced, and trying to accomplish a lot, which isn't a con, but communication can sometimes get muddled.
