    Pros

    I love being able to work alongside fascinating and intelligent people. SolutionsIQ is committed to professional development - and encourages and supports employees to develop and expand their knowledge and abilities. Executive management supports employees with new ideas who are willing to see them realized.

    Cons

    Long Commute if you don't live on the east side Sometimes there is a lack of direction in your role Consultants are incentivised to bill a high percentage of their time

    Advice to Management

    Build Measure Learn - Keep it up!

    Pros

    They've done a good job of assembling a great team of Agile consultants and developers. All of them are really smart and current on industry best practices.

    Cons

    There's a lack of internal communication about how the company is doing. The executives have a lot of closed-door meetings, leaving employees to wonder what's going on. There's no mentoring or career-pathing, and raises are hard to come by.

    Pros

    Good organization that has been around a long time. Both owners are very involved and listen to employees when they have issues. Opportunity to growth for account manager is good. Facility is nice place to work offering at time a work life balance.

    Cons

    There is no career growth opportunities for a Technical Recruiter. Great team environment it is small with no more than 5 and because most are project or contract based, no more are needed. There is no "actual training" they hire experienced only.

    Pros

    SolutionsIQ is a great consulting firm to work with because they are involved with cutting edge solutions that people want to buy, ie Agile Consulting, Agile Software Development, Agile Talent. The people who work here are committed to the success of the company and to the success of our clients. SolutionsIQ provides a flexibile working situation and a good work/home balance. The owners are hands-on, which could be seen as a negative, but I think it provides a focused and driven passion for excellence.

    Cons

    Not a dynamic workplace since most of the consultants are in the field at client sites. No matching 401K since the economic dip.

    Advice to Management

    Charlie and John Rudd have done a good job of positioning SolutionsIQ as thought leaders in Agile and Scrum. A few words of advise might be to...Pause to celebrate successes, invest more in your employees and find a cause that the company can rally around to give back to the community.

    Pros

    Has a history of being the best at what they do - clearly the place you want to work if you want to focus on agile development practices. More dedicated to learning and success for their customers than at other consulting firms I've worked for. Great colleagues, with a culture that's really committed to collaborative work and learning.

    Cons

    Poor benefits package, especially vacation, which is the worst of any company I'd worked for (5 years before you get more than 2 weeks). Vague salary structure. Unclear path for advancement. Difficulty in closing deals and a frequently changing strategy has led to an unstable work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Create clear, focused vision to for the future, and stick to it, so your customers and employees know what they can count on. Give people a clear understanding of how their contributions will be acknowledged and recognized.

    Pros

    1. They respect their employees. 2. Microsoft is probably the major company in which they place their employees. Such employees are contracted as "v-" (vee-dash) vendors, which means they can work indefinitely as long as there is work, as opposed to most other contractors at Microsoft who are "a-" agency employees, who can work only for a year before they are required to take 100 days off. They also throw a yearly family picnic for everyone, which is probably very expensive. I worked for them for six years, and never heard anything negative about them; which I think is very significant.

    Cons

    Most of the work is contract; not FTE.

    Advice to Management

    They are doing a great job for what they do!

    Pros

    SolutionsIQ allows it's team members to do what they need to in order to accomplish their jobs. They offer support, and treat people like professional adults. It's a refreshing environment to be in each day.

    Cons

    The culture can seem laid back, and could perhaps use a bit more drive...but really, there is a great amount of work life balance, and that is pretty important to a lot of individuals.

    Advice to Management

    My only suggestion is to review the benefits, specifically the vacation/PTo policy in order to bring it up to industry standards.
