    I do not believe this company does anything well. They do know how to call you and waste your time. They are unprepared

    Cons

    unprofessional
    rude
    conceited
    think they know what they are talking about

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    realize what your consultants are doing does not serve your ultimate growth interests

    I worked at The Armada Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A very professional and results oriented company, while maintaining a friendly, upbeat, engaging atmosphere. They operate with impeccable integrity and are well-networked with pertinent individuals and companies in the IT Consultancy Environment. They keep abreast of new trends and client needs, in addition to continually streamlining and upgrading their own operating processes. The latter simplifies their employees' interactive engagement requirements and reduces their time spent to input and retrieve pertinent information.

    Cons

    Lack of Company Match on 401K

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would love to see you become more focused in Project/Program Management in addition to your Technical focus. Also would be great to have you expand your presence, nationally.

    Pros

    Armada is an amazing place to work with a great team and awesome culture! Feeling like I'm part of a committed team is extremely important to me. Here at Armada, it doesn't only feel like a team that's working closely together, but we're like a family and genuinely care about one another's success. If you're looking for a company where you can enjoy and have fun with the people you work with, then Armada is it. There's a certain work hard play hard mentality here; where we are all committed to each others success and growth and that's why I love it here!

    Cons

    Continue with more team building activities such as bowling, team dinners, beach days, etc.. as those seem to really bring the team together and it just feels good to celebrate the successes of the day/week/quarter together as a team :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work together as a team and listen to the teams feedback and needs.

    Pros

    Fun, results oriented environment. Excellent core values which management truly lives by and operates the company in accordance with every day. Flat organization, management works in the bullpen along with the rest of the staff and is very supportive in helping everyone be successful. Great training and a relatively flexible work schedule. Excellent comp plan for producers! High performance team & fun, cool people to work with.

    Cons

    Very lean organization with little middle management. Some important business functions like accounting and IT outsourced, which perhaps could be better handled in-house.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
