    Overall positive experience

    (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsWorked with some kind and smart people here. Respectful and professional atmosphere, for the most part. Excellent recruiter. Got some really good experience, while working across a range of clients.

    ConsProject work was dull/monotonous at times.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Tread carefully

    Director (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsSalary, location, clients, snacks, location

    ConsNature of the work (boring, not creative), management has their heads up their rears, highly political, seeming lack of vision and pipeline, soulless culture

    Advice to Senior ManagementThrow a dart at a strategic direction and stay on course. You all are rudderless.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lot's of opportunities to learn.

    Software Developer (Current Employee)
    Palo Alto, CA

    ProsThis is a consulting agency, so most get the opportunity to work on a myriad of projects. As a result, one can pick up a lot of different skill-sets along the way. Can get busy at times, but overall the work/life balance is good.

    ConsAcquired by a large company (Alliance Data Systems / Epsilon), which has led to a lot of recent turnover.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to communicate about the short, medium, and long-term vision for SolutionSet within the context of the overall company (Alliance Data Systems / Epsilon).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood clients, good process, good learning opportunity, good co-workers. I learned so much in the time I was at SolutionSet due to the demands of the projects I was working on.

    ConsAcquisition by Epsilon changed the tone of the company to a much larger corporate one. The company update meetings have become just reviews of company financials and are totally impersonal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be absorbed into Epsilon

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Really bad.

    Designer (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe location was good and I really enjoyed the other designers. Free lunch on Fridays. Booze always in the fridge.

    ConsNo variety in projects which is what was absolutely promised in the interview. The clients and management were nightmares.
