    I have been working at Perficient full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Corporate 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 ManagementAdvice

    Enhance corporate communications!

    I worked at Perficient full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some 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.

    Cons

    In 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 ManagementAdvice

    Make some changes at the leadership level. Be transparent, and hold people accountable.

    Pros

    Employees are able to wear many hats and have the opportunity to shape their jobs within the boundaries of the role.

    Cons

    One of the core values is honesty and integrity. The company does not uphold this particular core value. Employees are not given communications about their performance or about how they can resolve client or team issues. Employees are working extremely long hours and do not have a work/life balance. There seems to be a lack for respect for the individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication from top down
