    I have been working at Prime 8 Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been a member of the Prime 8 team for nearly a year. I’ve found my colleagues to be very knowledge in their respective areas of focus. I really like that Prime 8 provides multiple opportunities for me to connect back to the larger team on a monthly basis (training, happy hours, breakfasts, women’s leadership). It has been at some of those team events where I have learned and shared experiences with colleagues on how we can improve our respective projects. In getting to know my colleagues better It gives me a good sense of community at the workplace which is a huge plus in consulting.

    Cons

    They are a bring your own device to work environment. I don’t see this as negative or positive, but just something you should be aware of.

    I have been working at Prime 8 Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have enjoyed working with Prime 8 for the last few years. If you work here, you will work with very smart people and learn about different industries. They have expanded far beyond Microsoft into the Healthcare, Retail and Aviation clients. This means that I have the option to work outside of Microsoft. They have great benefits, location and promote a friendly atmosphere. I have attended a couple of the training sessions and happy hours and enjoyed them. They really seems to care about their employees.

    Cons

    I saw some reviews noting that they are just local but now they have projects in Australia and number of new industries. They are not a national consulting firm so if you want they look to an Accenture or firm like that.

    I have been working at Prime 8 Consulting full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with excellent and diverse backgrounds. This means I have learned a great deal and joined as a Consultant with 5 years’ experience and now feel like I have gained a great deal. I am now comfortable working with senior level folks on my client site. They cultivated a team approach to projects and I have fun with my team mates at work and a few lunches and some planned outings. Many career development opportunities

    I was working at Microsoft for couple of year and now enjoying working outside of Microsoft. Prime 8 gave me the option to stay at Microsoft or to work on new client. I jumped at the opportunity now enjoying this new client and new challenges. The pay has been good and the benefits are above average.

    Cons

    They do not pay for the toll bridge or for millage on car. Parking at some clients can be expensive but it depends on the client and location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone I speak to seems to have positive view of things - so keep it up

    Pros

    Healthcare coverage and costs are good
    Management is genuine and cares about the teams
    This place is boosting my resume and career.

    I have been working at Prime 8 Consulting full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Recently joined this company after working for Big 4 type firm and some other consulting companies in Seattle area for number of years. The interview and onboarding process was quick and effective, and I was on a project within 2 weeks. They had a choice of projects to choose from and both were surprising high level and impactful, which I liked. I am used to getting some junior PM role but these were with VP/Directors and high visibility. Compensation was good and the benefits are also stronger than expected and they have a decent 401K.
    I was impressed with the range of clients not just Microsoft, but Amazon, Boeing etc

    Cons

    I have only been here for 3 months, but none so far, maybe the lack of offices in other cities and no PTO.

    Seem to be doing all the right things
