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

    Pros

    Work/life balance is usually good, but depends on the project you're on. It was usually easy to work remote from wherever.

    Cons

    The benefits were not good. I was part of a smaller company that Perficient acquired. We had great benefits, but then Perficient hacked them up.
    I did not like my group, or the work we did. I was not able to switch out. I even internally applied to Perficient positions, but never got a response.
    The HR department does not answer emails or calls, and IT is equally hard to get a hold of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul your HR and IT departments.
    If you're going to waste the time on internal marketing about how great Perficient is to its employees, then try to at least follow through. Instead they send emails about why they are increasing the cost of your benefits, and it is not their problem.

    I worked at Perficient full-time

    Pros

    Variety of projects and clients give you good flavor of corporate life across many organizations. Get to travel to all parts of the country like most big consulting firms. Recognize talent and reward it with awards and promotions (but not monetarily).

    Cons

    Lack of certainty of projects - you are here one day, and elsewhere another day. They get much more out of you than what you had signed up for but pay way below market rate for your experience and skills. Lot of mid-level managers and few workers. No training of employees, you only learn on the job. Often a mismatch of skills/interest and the projects you are assigned to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to nurture talent to retain it. Invest more in employee training & pay market rate.

    Unethical business practices

    Former Employee - C# Software Engineer in Indianapolis, IN

    I worked at Perficient as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interesting projects and good software tools.

    Cons

    I was asked to help out on a C# software project that was over budget and behind schedule. They asked me to create software to print hazardous material labels on a special printer for their client. After completing and testing the label printing software, my job was terminated and Perficient never paid my temp company for my work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you ask outside consultants to help out on a project, you need to pay them for the work they do even if your project is over-budget. Don't try to make your accounting books look good by screwing contractors that you hire! It wasn't my fault that your project was over-budget. I'll bet all your employees that were working on the project got paid their salaries.

    We make every effort to pay our contractors in a timely fashion. It is our policy to pay subcontractors in accordance to the terms and conditions agreed upon by both parties.

    I have been working at Perficient

    Pros

    Perficient says the right things about work-life balance and career development. Some good, talented, and/or friendly people who work at the company. Salary and benefits seem in-line with the industry. Budget for training / personal classes. A lot of independence if you are competent and self-reliant. Relatively fun culture for an IT consultancy. Ethics are promoted. Few egos.

    Cons

    Perficient employs people of varying (to poor) skill; contractors to backfill awarded contracts which is very hit-and-miss. Overpromise, underdeliver is unfortunately a problem when Perficient rushes to win/sign contracts. Random travel and sometimes poor last-minute planning. Decentralization can cause a lack of standards, processes or relationships with other team members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire better people and adopt more standards.
