    Benefits & People surpassing expectations

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Benefits are top notch and comparable to top 0.1% of the industry.
    Bountiful snacks and drinks. Friday Bagels and very transparent top down management.
    C level officers are highly approachable and very high transparency top down.
    Periodic celebrations and handouts (tickets to sport events, bowling, family invitations to baseball games etc.)
    Generous reimbursements for traveling consultants. You can stay in the best of hotels, dine at top notch restaurants and shore up on all those air miles.
    Superior product with no real competitor in their core products.

    Cons

    Product is complex but that's what makes it best of the breed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the culture but make sure it does not get diluted as the company scales bigger.

    Great perks do not result in a great future

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Benefits, free snacks and drinks, free bagels on Friday, very nice and modern brand new office environment, and a generous PTO policy.

    Cons

    lack of communication, gossip, lack of trust in leadership, no talent development and very little opportunities to grow. this is the type of company that will do/say anything to entice you in, however once you do work there, it is their way or the highway. too many unfilled promises during yearly reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the perks, and the "fun" that you try to create comes across as fake, and trying too hard. You expect so much out of your employees (at the expense of our families), yet you are not able to meet their expectations. lots of words, little action. a ping pong table and free snacks are not going to ensure a career growth, and a stable work environment in the long run. Take responsibility, and deliver your promises.

    Growing and exciting company

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Consultant  in  Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    The people and work environment is amazing!
    People love coming to work. They have very good compensation rates compared to similar jobs and definitely very good benefits (including unheard of health care benefits).
    Very open, learning environment. There is a ton of group work but they only hire extremely brilliant people so they also expect everyone to be self sufficient and independent. It is a very fast growing company so there is also a large potential for growth in the company.

    Cons

    They expect a lot from its employees and even though we are all very hard workers, it is a lot of work and can be exhausting at times, especially with the added travel.
    As they are growing, there are some growing pains in terms of how to handle defining roles, training of new hires, and keeping that homey feel yet still becoming a large cooperation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the documentation initiative.

    Great company to work for

    • Comp & Benefits

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Smart people, challenging projects, great work environment with good benefits. Leadership cares about the people and are trying to make positive changes.

    Cons

    Undergoing a change from small privately owned to large company so lots of changes happening very fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to curb the attrition. People are scared of change so constant communication into the decisions along with the reasoning behind them should help. Please don't sugarcoat messages, people may not be super happy to hear the truth but they will respect you for it.

    Pros

    The workforce is incredibly bright and motivated to do really well. The culture is also not driven by stress or peer competition.

    Cons

    Extremely complex product that takes a long time to understand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your employees the focus of your business and not your customers. The product sells itself, foster people that want to improve and excel to make the company better.

    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    -Very intelligent and dedicated employee base
    -Above market compensation (including large bonuses)
    -Lots of travel benefits (earn free vacations for yourself plus all expenses paid for while traveling for work)
    -Generous vacation allowance
    -Excellent health + dental + vision + 401k + life benefits
    -Casual office environment, free vending machines, starbucks coffee, bagels on friday
    -Fast growing company with a lot of career potential

    Cons

    -average 45-55+ hour work weeks (depending on project), may occasionally work weekends.
    -considerable travel may wear you down at time (50-80%)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more acknowledgement of hard work and accomplishments to the employees (can be verbal praise...). Don't overextend employee and team bandwidth by committing to too many projects at once. Even though the sales team is great, make sure that no one is stretched too thin.
