    Pros

    Delicious lunches! Education regarding organizational skills that you can definitely take with you. Some very interesting people to work with although you don't see them most of the time.

    Cons

    Management is just bizarre. Like unfathomably bizarre. Literally the strangest people I've ever worked with. See other reviews for what I'm talking about.

    Advice to Management

    Separate your hobbies from your work.


  2. You have to drink the Kool Aid if you want to thrive here.

    Pros

    Cool progressive environment where work life balance is strongly encouraged and policies are in place to allow for it. Very cool co workers.

    Cons

    You'll spend more time documenting every breath you take than actually working. Or at least that's what they want you to do. Documentation is important but this place takes it unnecessarily far - and the clients get billed handsomely for it too. In any case, their Way of Doing Things is really a huge oversell and I'm surprised that they get away with it. Benefits are somewhat arbitrary - with some new hires getting more and some less - of the fundamental stuff like health insurance. Turnover is more than most places and pay is less than industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    This company and those that run it are just a bit too pleased with themselves and it shows. A little humility would be nice though they don't seem to be for lack of clients.
