    Full time employee, great benefits, company really goes out of the way to help their employees.

    Consultant (Former Employee)
    Rockville, MD

    ProsExcellent work life balance and plenty of flexibility, of course as long as you are performing well.
    Plenty of smart people

    ConsEmployee feedback seemed to lost on leadership a lot of the times. Inability to retain talent.

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

    Lots of very smart people, but CEO changes strategy too frequently, and doesn't keep his word(maybe unintentionally?)

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Rockville, MD

    ProsYou'll learn a lot about SharePoint, and consulting with SharePoint. Great people, great comraderie.

    ConsHours are insane without any compensation to make up for that. Verbal agreements on compensation are broken. CEO micro-manages too much.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire a CEO who has grown a company from the current size to where you want it to be, and have current CEO take a President role instead, reaching out to customers to gauge and improve customer satisfaction.

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

    the best team I've ever had -- excellence, commaraderie, honesty, respect, opportunities and growth

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Rockville, MD

    ProsFrom the developer to the CEO, each member of the Portal Solutions team was not just excellent, we thrived on one another's strengths and always tried our best; and thus we were excellent. This place became, for me and most others there, home.

    ConsHaving more offices would allow project managers to better conduct meetings and conversations. The foozball table should be sound isolated, and video games (in my opinion) should be turned off until 6pm.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A great place to work with great people and flexibility.

    Senior SharePoint Consultant (Current Employee)
    Rockville, MD

    ProsHere are the great things I've experienced here.
    * Flexible environment (no dress code, ability to work remotely, options to work from other areas).
    * Great people who happen to know alot about alot of different things SharePoint.
    * Sharing knowledge and helping each other is encouraged and practiced.
    * Young company where new ideas and new ways of thinking can influence how things are done.
    * Great environment with foosball, xbox 360, wii and basketball hoop.

    ConsAs with most small companies there are some adjustments to be made.
    * Project development isn't standardized. Varies by team and by project manager. (this is great for some people but could be detrimental to others. -- but someone with great ideas could change this)

    Stay Away

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Rockville, MD

    ProsIf you know how to negotiate, Portal Solutions has the capacity to pay well for some individuals.
    If you want to know SharePoint, Portal Solutions is a good place to learn.

    ConsIt's all about the billable hour. It doesn't matter if you're bleeding out at the emergency room, you'd better get in those 40-50 billable per week.
    Please leave your ethics at the door.
    Management doesn't have appropriate experience in a corporate environment in the United States, so the opinions from the top are often skewed, and in some cases, questionably legal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSuccess begins at the very top, and nepotism and cronyism have no place in a successful company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
