    I've worked with the smartest and best of the best. Year after year the work has been consistant. RDA is routinely supportive of it's employees and treats us well. I feel valuable everyday.

    Cons

    After many years I can't say I really have any. I love my job, I think the direction the company is headed is great.

    Pros

    Some of exceptionally talented engineers to work with, able to work on large number of projects, emphasis on learning new technologies, excellent benefits package, etc

    Cons

    Limited scope of platform choices (Microsoft specific focus), Consulting culture with focus on large clients, etc

    Advice to Management

    Current business scope has limitations and fast evolving leaving little work for consultants. Venture into other practices such as Digital marketing, BI Analytics and build platforms. Dev center is a good model but need to be equipped with experienced people to build platforms

    Pros

    Challenging work, flexible hours, remote work opportunity, good work/life balance, good salary and benefits, opportunity to work and learn from professionals well recognized in the industry.

    Cons

    Recognize and promote consultants more often.

    Advice to Management

    Better management of work load across geographies so as to respect travel preference of employees hired with a promise of placement locally.

    Pros

    By far the best group of smart tech folks in a single location, yet to find a similar company. High compensation, paid overtime. Practice groups keep you motivated and encourages continuous education. Great group of folks to work with, no Big 5 mentality with fake titles and arrogant attitudes. Not for the lazy-unmotivated OR non-Techie-we-love-acronyms folks, you will not survive.

    Cons

    A bit of random project allocation that may not necessarily match your skills, no 401k matching, weak on long term strategy and business development. Pros outweigh Cons.

    Advice to Management

    Need some new ideas to try a different approach to keep the top folks for the long run especially with the market becoming more competitive. However please stay who you are & don't fall into the off-shoring model like so many other companies i.e. don't be cheap, no wonder we hear so much about poor software quality.

    Pros

    RDA has very supportive management for both professional and personal issues. They encourage learning new technologies and techniques. The local offices have a family feel to them. You are compensated for overtime on an hourly basis. Management is very optimistic towards future development trends and is looking to train the delivery staff on them.

    Cons

    While the salary is nice, the benefits are better in other companies (401k match, % of medical coverage contributions for those with families). The salary does help offset that to a small extent. Off-hours work is sometimes required for internal practice group work. Pros definitely outweigh the cons.

    Advice to Management

    Consider reinstating some of the benefits dropped a while ago (profit sharing, etc.). When planning projects, allow for ample time for training and learning new technologies.
