    I have been working at Vesta Partners full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting projects, many are full 'blueprint to go-live' plant maintenance and materials management projects. I've had the opportunity to work with a variety of industries and locations. Great group of consultants to work with who are very helpful in offering their knowledge and tips, helping you to expand your knowledge. Always available to respond to questions or help resolve problems. Management supports SAP certification and has developed a training program as well as methodologies for projects and SAP functionalities. Their training is SAP functionality based and not only in-house procedure training like a lot of companies.

    Most projects are Monday thru Thursday at client, working remotely on Friday. I have worked at PwC and IBM, and there is no comparison with Vesta management's interest in their consultant's career development and work/life balance. Work/life balance is not just a catch-phrase with Vesta management, but they support you with clients that have little regard for contractors or consultants. The company has been much more generous with bonuses and compensation than PwC or IBM ever was. Of the 5 companies I have worked for in my career (the other 4 were Fortune 500 companies) Vesta is by far the one I am happiest working for. They also support spousal travel for weeks when you stay at the client over the weekend. They don't require you to live in one of their core cities or areas where they have an office.

    A good company for experienced consultants, people coming out of industry with SAP knowledge and younger people just starting out in the consulting field.

    Cons

    The major difficulty is the pretty much constant travel Monday through Thursday, with occasional projects requiring a fly out Sunday night or fly back Friday morning. Air travel seems to have greatly degenerated over the past several years, and local projects are a rarity since I don't live near an industrial part of the country. Projects with extensive travel try to work in periodic work-remote weeks to alleviate travel stress. It's also hard to take 2 or 3 week vacations due to the uncertainty of project schedules, but is possible with enough notice. Since Vesta was a small company, they weren't able to negotiate a good plan with health care insurers, but recently their health care plan has greatly improved.

    I gave a relatively low rating to work/life balance since the travel involved with the SAP consulting field is tough on your home life, but in comparison to other SAP consulting firms, Vesta would rate very highly.

    Pros

    The company provides simply the best internal hands-on SAP training in the industry. As a former instructor from SAP now a SAP consultant, this level of training is practically unheard of, most other vendors provide end user training. With Vesta Partners, each SAP boot camps that are organized provide the most comprehensive hands-on SAP configuration and "real world" scenarios implementation experience. Each module throughout and at end provides extensive test questions in prepping the students for SAP certification as well. The instructors are all excellent internal consultants with years of implementation experiences in all types of industries.

    Cons

    Remove the basic navigation chapter of SAP at the beginning of the boot camp.

    Great company to work for. Long hours, not ideal for families due to travel, but do-able.

    Pros

    Great compensation. Consultants are paid for their long hours and there is opportunity for advancement. The company will grow quickly with cloud computing.

    Cons

    As with any consulting job, travel Monday-Thursday so it is very difficult to do with families. Vesta Partners only looks for the best of the best as they are experts at what they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue what you're doing. The company will grow with the emergence of cloud computing. Look to outsource remote work to India.

    Pros

    Others in company willing to share knowledge. Great people in consulting and management ranks. Great reputation in the industry. Growing company with opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Constant travel is a challenge, as with any consulting job. Try and keep it to Mon-Thur, which helps, but week in, week out travel can be tough on a family, particularly with younger children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on excellance of delivery to our customers while maintaining a balanace with concern for our employees.
