    I worked at NorthPoint Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Professional environment, many different projects, lots of growth.

    Cons

    It's really a staff augmentation company, not a consulting company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat employees like cattle herding from project to project based on availability.

    Pros

    Partners accept, rather than reject, alternative thinking to achieve not only the goals of the client, but the goals of the firm

    Cons

    As we care more about providing a place to be creative with upward mobility and leading edge solutions over getting wealthy, we sometimes lose prospective employees to the highest bidder

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to market ourselves better to get our name out in different arenas.

    I have been working at NorthPoint Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There are very supportive and professional people working at Northpoint. Working as a consultant is the best thing for a computer programmer, you are open to many different technologies, ideologies, techniques. As a consultant you are never stagnant, you get to learn new languages or new techniques since not all projects are a like, you meet interesting people. Working in different and some pretty amazing companies gives you an opportunity to learn to communicate with different personalities and adapt to all kinds of situations. There is a lot of growth opportunities at Northpoint, since you can start as an Associate and grow all the way to Senior Manager or even Partner. They have a culture of promoting from within as well as teaching their employees by having "lunch and learns" and all other learning opportunities. I do feel like they are my daytime family, we do some fun things together too, so it's not always all about work.

    Cons

    For me personally there are really no cons here. I would agree with other reviewer here that sometimes projects are not 100% estimated but I think that's a normal agile planning issue that exists in any place where planing is not easily achieved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    . I am very happy with people I work with and who manage my projects. I believe there will be an opportunity for the managers to take some workshops on how to be a better at communication.

    Pros

    Good office perks, management is very approachable. Hours are reasonable.

    Cons

    When working on project onsite, it's easy to feel disconnected from the rest of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure consultants are more involved in the company during onsite projects and follow up more frequently regarding their career progress.

    Pros

    Good client list, not a lot of downtime. Training/learning is encouraged.

    Cons

    Slow/Hard to transition to new projects. Communication with central office is lacking. Very out of sight out of mind mentality. Annual reviews are helpful in figuring out your career path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication with offsite teams.
