    No investment in workforce

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)

    ProsMy coworkers were generally a group of nice people who were willing to help when / if needed. Management was generally pretty approachable.

    ConsManagement seemed to be confused about how to properly run the business constantly re-tooling our go to market strategy. No investment was made into developing more junior resources through formal training - prior to my departure I asked to attend classroom training to prepare for the next assignment they were asking me to take on because I had never dealt with that subject area (Payroll) and they refused to pay for classroom training but instead offered computer based training. The commitment to continuously developing employees was not present. Many of the administrative processes were quite manual and backward as well. Very little opportunity to move/grow from within. Company did a poor job at building corporate culture.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The sale comes before the service

    Management (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsIf your a good knowledgable consultant you can perform your job with little drama and politics. A majority staff very friendly and helpful.

    ConsDeliverables may be unrealistic, politics and favorites can cause challenges during projects. Do not plan on bonus as part of base compensation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExcellent Service and Skills should be put ahead of sales quota. Better review of SOS to ensure they are clear, detailed and achievable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It's about the people

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWork with seasoned professionals who are willing to share knowledge, strong presence in health care and public sector, outstanding clients/projects, room for advancement, one of the best in the industry for work/life balance, treated as a professional, competent and friendly operations staff, good benefits for size of company.

    ConsNo 401(k) match, more formalized training

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevise a workable plan for the direction of the company, and over communicate what each person needs to do in there respective areas to assist in meeting those set expectations. Already being done to some level, but could stand to be more focused in nature.

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

    Terrible

    Senior IT Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsThey did land me a client and then leave me alone.

    ConsCan't manage their finances at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your people what you have contracted to pay them!

    Started bad, only got worse in the last year

    Regional Director (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsFlexible work, with challenging clients and fluid methodology.

    ConsFinancial problems, poor leadership, no methodology and dishonest mid level management. Probably due to their financial problems. No raises, no bonuses, and they'll go back on their word, intentionally and not pay their people what is rightfully owed, the management is masterful at managing the message and turning their problems around on the client and consultants. I think they're grifters at heart these days.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour word is all that you have in the end.

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

    Having Financial Issues Again...but some very good consultants

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Indianapolis, IN

    ProsSmart consultants
    Deep software knowledge
    Some really exciting projects
    Stay very busy
    A few people are promoted from within

    ConsCompany financial problems...cashflow issues...
    NO raises in 2013
    ALL Bonuses cancelled for 2013
    Subcontractors getting paid 3-4 months late
    Underbidding projects to land sales...then understaff them to make them profitable
    Project scope not managed well...give too much away
    Use too many subcontractors...which zaps project profitability
    Benefits very poor: pharmacy, dental and eyeglass provide almost zero value.
    Sales team ignores large parts of the country
    Some consultants face coast to coast travel

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees in the trenches...
    Refocus sales teams on new geographies.
    Increase salaries and benefits to attract more employees.

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

    Consultant II

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- hands on anything when you get assigned on a project
    - learn anything related to the project

    Cons- very unprofessional and no sense of organization
    - no consistency in work
    - no standardizing in internal procedures and compensation
    - financial problem w the company

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your financial together and streamline the internal process and learn how to train your internal staff instead of penalizing them for mistakes that can be avoided if there was a sense of structure.

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