    Pros

    Company leaves you alone if your not making waves. Do your job and your left alone.

    Relocated for an 18 month contract and it ended in 7. No advance notice. Took a big loss ending my lease early.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have better communication with employees in regards to client issues.

    I worked at Keane full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Prior to the purchase of Keane by a VC firm they were a very positive company to work for. They were very supportive of their employees and strived to provide the best service for their clients.

    Cons

    Upon purchase of Keane by a firm in NY backed by a VC the company quickly slid into a downward spiral. The new leadership group will walk over anyone that thinks outside the tiny box of profit. Employees are just a verbal in the wheel of this company, they have no issue burning out the employees. Moral is horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave the company, you don't have a clue what you are doing.

    Pros

    There was alot of turnover, so you always knew someone to connect with outside the company. Mo one planned on staying longer than the current project.

    Cons

    The upper management was always turning over. The Caritor personnel hated the old Keane employees. Don't know what has happened since it was sold again.

    Miserable Place to Work

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA

    I worked at Keane

    Pros

    Wide range of benefits (but some of the premiums are higher than other companies)
    Great Parking
    A chance to work in a larger company environment

    Cons

    This company is very chaotic and disorganized. It still functions like a bunch of smaller companies. They are very reactive and fail to plan ahead.
    Pay raises are a joke and they are constantly trying to send as many jobs to India as possible. Between the high turnover and layoffs, a lot of important processes have fallen through the cracks. Employees are not treated as a valuable asset. There is really no incentive to work hard because only the higher ups will get a raise, bonus or promotion. They will still expect you to work way more than a 40 hr work week. Kiss your nights and weekends goodbye.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should value your employees more. You would be more successful with a happy & dedicated workforce.
