    I worked at Rimkus Consulting full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I got my start at Rimkus Consulting Group and spent nearly 7 years with the company. I had a great manager, and really enjoyed the company culture and working along side my fellow coworkers. Rimkus is very family oriented and helped me plan my work hours around being a single Mom. Its a great place if you're motivated to work, lots of autonomy, and central location in the city.

    Cons

    Compensation could have been better. Sometimes it felt like, "the good ole boys club"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Company has great growth potential and the leadership team is actively involved in day to day decision making. Open door policy with COO, CEO and board members make them easy to approach. Most of the engineers and experts are great at what they do and interact with clients well.

    Cons

    No new training, based on your position, you'll learn so much as you go along it takes the first 2 years to understand how to be effective. No systems in place to share processes and procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a new hire training geared to profession, rather than admins, marketers and experts attending the same one. Establish a way to disseminate "best practices" and procedures to assist employees in knowing the correct channels to follow. Hold employees accountable (teach, coach, train, then progressive discipline) when they aren't doing their job properly or in a timely manner

    Pros

    Great office location, facilities and parking

    Cons

    Supervisor who had no clue how to do the work or how to manage effectively without playing favorites. Favoritism is the only way to be promoted not the quality of the work or job performance. Management out of touch with what was actually happening in the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to employees work-product instead of who is sucking up to you.

    Pros

    Great group of guys to work with, upper management is easy to get along with most of the time. Close group of colleagues that make work an enjoyable experience.

    Cons

    Work was not challenging enough most of the time and tedious.. Management plays favorites to frequently. As a new hire don't expect much respect at first, it is something that is earned with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more opportunity for advancement. Provide more feedback and review of work satisfaction

    Pros

    Really good place to learn, train and hone your skills for future employment or even your own future startup. Alternately, it's a stable company and if stability is what you want and you're able to adapt to the culture, this could be a good fit for you. This place produces much of its own completion, many of whom turn out to be some of the best competitors in the industry.

    Cons

    As an engineer or technical expert, your role is clear: work hard, bill as much as possible, and recognize you were hired to work for and not improve the company. Marketing and management appear to be self-elevated and appear to have either systematically or coincidentally maneuvered most upward mobility and opportunity to contribute to the company's growth from the desks of the engineers and technical experts.

    It appears that only if an engineer or technical expert ascends into office or division management will they ever go anywhere other than the lower, wide and flat area of the org chart. If the engineer does ascend into management, they then incur two fulltime jobs: management and continuing to bill as an engineer. Tough on a family man or woman.

    I have personally received negative feedback from plenty of people in the industry. While I used to mention my prior employment there positively to prospective clients, I have ceased this exercise as I think it may do more harm than good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consult with a top-tier business growth strategist / consulting firm. Management and business structure could use a complete overhaul IF growth is desired. If status quo is fine, then keep on keeping on.
