    Pros

    Overall the organization is establishing new processes and procedures to foster growth. These processes will benefit the company in the long haul.

    Cons

    The challenge that exists is that while many processes are implemented that will benefit the company this is a change and a challenge as they get implemented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure everyone knows that this is a processes and that the end goal is a stronger organization.

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

    Pros

    Decent exposure to IBM products and training.
    Salary is nice
    Ability to work from home (on select opportunities)

    Cons

    Back-stabbing atmosphere. Regardless of how well you do, or how much you are praised, the management has no problem firing you.
    They keep the wrong people (under performers who have worked at Prolifics for a long time) and let go of the talented ones (project managers/entry levels who have shown that they want to fix problems, rather than just sweep them under the rug).
    The sales team tries to force deals through with unrealistic prices/timelines.
    The benefits are terrible, high deductible.
    Bonus/Reviews are bad. Regardless of how well they say you have done, they give "meets expectations".
    There is no reason to strive to advance your career by over achieving. It gets you nowhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management in there that actually has an idea of how to run a company.

    Pros

    Work is good. Riemburse for training and technical certifications.

    Cons

    Benefits - Insurance, vacation, relocation expenses. Salary increments and agreed bonuses are not good. Always have to be on billing to enjoy overall pay package. HR policies are wrost.

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

    Pros

    Exposure to IBM technologies. Lots of travel if you are interested in frequent flyer miles and hotel nights.

    Cons

    Change in management over past year. Values management and bottom line over consultants who are the bread and butter.
    Cannot tell the truth to employees to save their lives.
    Not much in the way of work/life balance. Even if travel time is upwards towards 20 hours per week. 40 billable hours is still expected with no compensation or consideration for family life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retaining talent is not retaining management, it's retaining the employees who make you money.

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

    Pros

    none left. the company is riding on the personalities of who is left and that is very few of the talented brilliant people.

    Cons

    Great company with brilliant people until the new president wanted cheaper, better faster instead of quality and customer service. Has never been a consultant and has no idea what customer service is or how to run a consulting firm. Mass exit of the veterans who have been there for years. Expect to work 100 hours a week and they will ask for more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    too late. CEO ran the company and was great. very involved. the new president has not got a clue.

    Pros

    -- Decent compensation
    -- Established Name in the Market
    -- Ample Clients
    -- Experienced resources

    Cons

    -- Bonus structure is not good anymore
    -- Health Plan is not the best one
    -- Vacation Plan allows you only 12 days of paid vacation every year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please improve the bonus plan as it was earlier and allow more vacation to the employees as they deserve it. Other than that, Prolifics really needs to work on retaining their workforce.
