    Pros

    I have been Keane consultant for 10 years, while there are nothing in particular that stands out, they are a fair employer.

    Cons

    First - I dont see my Keane manager for months and have gone a year without seeing or talking to the manager.
    Second - I know my client gives Keane a raise but I dont see it translate to me
    Third - Does not have Keane employee meeting/get togethers, it would be great for people like me who are the client site to meet some other Keaneites and Keane managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make an effort to arrange more manager-employee meetings and some informal meetings as well.

    Pros

    Strong national presence that seemed to support growth of their employees. I have heard excellent reviews of Keane nationally, the Richmond, Good salary and good benefits.

    Cons

    The Richmond, VA office seemed to be in over their heads. Several employees were in staff augmentation roles with very little management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More support in the staff aug roles. Look to develop employee skill sets so that you can position Keane teams to take on projects and deliver as a unit.

    One of the best IT company caring for individual career growth and great opportunities to learn at every stage of the career

    Still a very young company and need lot of work to establish their footmarks in the enterprise projects across the Globe. Limited SAP projects and still has lot of chance to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at Keane has been doing a great work in establishing their footmarks and working very hard to grow in SAP which is the growing area currently.

    Pros

    OK Salary and benefits. It rally depends on your manager. My direct manager only contacts me when necessary. Other managers I have worked with are great. Do not expect a pay raise in the future. Leave polidy for emergencies is very good.

    Cons

    Long hours depending on the customer. The customer is king and employees come second. Onboarding is missing or inadequate. You choose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized and realize your employees are your most important resource in a IT service industry. Good luck in the future.

    I worked at Keane

    Pros

    Talented coworkers. Best part of my position was contributing to proposals where I was bid as a lead project manager (rather than the position I was hired for). I only left since the position I was bid on (which my qualifications WON for Keane) was not awarded in a timely manner. Since I could not afford to be "on the bench" for any duration of time in this economy, I had to make a move. Very similar situation to every government contracting company. Always looking for "follow on" work.

    Cons

    In my specific contract, essentially we were paid (quite a bit) for just showing up. It is here that I learned after 17 years of professional work, that government employees cannot be fired; they are just "moved around" to another agency or division if they become problematic. Explains a lot doesn't it?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management at the corporate headquarters in McLean for the Federal business seem to not understand the need for contractors to remain employed. Not enough proactive work in finding current employees positions to roll into when a current contract expires.
