    Pros

    This was a good company with good leadership. I worked there for many years and learned a lot and was able to manage a successful team.

    Once they this company was bought out, everything changed and the culture was no longer as pleasant.

    I worked at SolutionSet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, location, clients, snacks, location

    Cons

    Nature 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 Management

    Throw a dart at a strategic direction and stay on course. You all are rudderless.

    I worked at SolutionSet full-time (More than a year)

    Worked 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.

    Cons

    Project work was dull/monotonous at times.

    I have been working at SolutionSet full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Acquisition 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 Management

    Don't be absorbed into Epsilon

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No variety in projects which is what was absolutely promised in the interview. The clients and management were nightmares.
