    Great experience.

    Lead Technical Consultant (Former Employee)

    ProsI thoroughly enjoyed my time working at Perficient, learned a lot and worked with great people. You do have control of how much time you put into your career; however, keep in mind sub-text expectations from management.

    ConsCorporate communication needs to be refined as there is disengaged employees that don't listen to corporate communications due to not aligning to corporate culture and tone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnhance corporate communications!

    On growth path, Yet Lot to be done

    Senior Technical Architect (Current Employee)
    Saint Louis, MO

    Pros- Good work life balance
    - Good Pay practices
    - Industry best talent
    - CEO focused on growth
    - Very string Horizontal practice
    - Several industry recognitions

    Cons- Most of the company leadership comes from many small acquisitions who lacks big visions. They need an industry veteran from Big consulting firm who bring big vision. This is what holding this company back.
    - Lacks mandated periodic Automated Employee Performance Review System. This is leading to each business unit following their own employee review practices. No properly drawn career path.
    - Most of the company revenue and cash flow is leveraged for acquisitions leaving very tight funds for internal investments like Trainings, Employee benefits programs, marketing initiatives etc.
    - PTO Laps in 6 months if not used.
    - Weak HR function (Lacks proper mechanism to motivate and keep up with growing employees)
    - No Learning Management System or Access to 24*7 Book store
    - Lack Access to industry leading research tools like Gartner, Forrester etc.
    - Lack of Coordination between Local Business Units and national Business Units
    - Lack of repeat business. Many hit and run success. Lacks Vision to stay in an account and grow (With few exceptions)
    - Very susceptible to industry downturn as they are in specialty business

    Advice to Senior Management- Grow Internationally
    - Improve vision around GDC. Need volume business.
    - Improve Account management to improve repeat business
    - Bring industry veterans

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good clients. Bad management.

    Technical Consultant (Former Employee)

    ProsThe client was Great. I loved the client. The pay isn't that great.

    ConsIf management doesn't like you then you won't be around for long.

    First year was great, then things went down hill...

    Consultant (Former Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsSome of the leadership team was interested to invest in employees, provide direction, and keep things positive. My career counselor (manager) was excellent, even though there were significant challenges in the Minneapolis office.

    ConsIn 2013, there was a leadership team change. The new leadership did not not effectively engage people, personalities, or problems. With the current environment, there is no real initiative or follow-through. Talking points and "here's where we are headed" were too "flavor of the month". No compelling vision... and certainly no "heart".

    The culture worsened to the point where there was no reason to stay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake some changes at the leadership level. Be transparent, and hold people accountable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
