    Former Employee - Senior Supply Chain Design Consultant in Ann Arbor, MI

    I worked at Llamasoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Write your own career ticket in strategic network planning and consulting with the experience you gain as part of the Solutions team. Company is currently the leader in its field. Vibrant, laid back software start-up culture. Many bright, hardworking individuals push one's own motivation to achieve and perform well. Some nice travel opportunities to visit client sites. Health insurance premiums covered 100%.

    Cons

    Periodic organizational restructuring and role changes can feel a little chaotic. Project deadlines can mean working long evenings and weekends. No 401K and small bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent about the reasons for organizational changes and why several senior leaders were asked to leave the company after brief tenures.

    I have been working at Llamasoft full-time

    Pros

    Innovative staff and great product(s), very promising trajectory for company, great health benefits

    Cons

    Salary so-so, wants to see more of the workplace flexibility other departments tout

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a culture of trust/have faith in employees to work outside of office when showing strong results. Avoid micro-management (not a current problem per se, but can see things heading in this direction).

    Pros

    I get paid what I think I'm worth. (which may be more than I'm really worth!)
    Incredibly flexible work. I come and go as I please as long as I do my work and get my hours.
    Lots of room for growth, its easy to interact with the VP's and CEO

    Cons

    Smaller company, growing fast. The dynamics are changing as we grow.
    No 401k comp.
    Great Health insurance, but no eye plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to limit overhead as we get bigger to ensure we don't waste time communicating.

    I worked at Llamasoft

    Pros

    training and leadership were adequate for early entry into industry, growth was available within the organization and fairly available to employees

    Cons

    the downside of working at the company was out of line with my longer term career goals and development, and location was difficult for me

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    consider long term career potential growth and development of the employee and provide flexible working and hours with advancement availability
