    I worked at cPrime full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Leader in the Agile/Scrum and PMO space. Very diversified with staffing, consulting, training, and unique tools. Zubin, the CEO, is incredibly intelligent and a great leader.

    Employees are taken care of and everyone gets along with no drama at all. Fun employee events and dinner here and there which keeps everyone close. Work hard, play hard with a dual keggerator in the office!

    Cons

    Nothing really. Things were great.

    I have been working at cPrime as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have always been skeptical of traditional staffing agencies. These guys are different! They have a true Agile Consulting Practice and help many of the top companies in the Bay Area with their Agile Transformations. Chuck Badger was always a pleasure to work with and placed me three times over the last 5 years with some very cool companies. I picked up my CSM and PMI-ACP along the way. cPrime paid for those certifications. They have been truly invested in my development. They always came out to check on me at my various client sites and took me to lunch often. I was invited to every holiday and summer party that they held. They took me out to baseball games with the team and really made me feel like part of the company even though I was 100% at a client site. How many Consulting shops do that?

    Cons

    As a Consultant I was not eligible for PTO but did have great benefits for myself and my family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe a way to reward the consultants that have stuck around for 5+ years? Profit sharing? :)

    I have been working at cPrime full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have recently completed my 4 year anniversary here at cPrime. I have grown more here professionally than any of my previous jobs combined. cPrime is very ambitious and lives on the cutting edge both in terms of the products and services we offer and also in the tools that are used in the back office to deliver. We have three very distinct lines of business within the Agile space and I am lucky enough to be involved in all of them in some way which keeps my life very interesting and stimulating.

    Cons

    The only con for me is the commute from the Tri-Valley but that is a minor thing to deal with for the opportunity to work for such a great company. The company is also very flexible in terms of hours and work from home to accommodate.

    I have been working at cPrime full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People, people, people. And a story of success. The company is growing and is exciting! They really believe in doing the best for the customer. Period. Also a commitment to develop the employees.

    Cons

    Growing pains. If you want a completely predictable, and a no-challenge job, cPrime is not for you. But if you want to make something happen, then it is great.

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at cPrime full-time

    Pros

    Provides a variety of training work to engage in with a mixture of local and travel work included. Useful if you desire traveling for short training engagements.

    Cons

    Not well suited for applied consultants seeking development of thought leadership at clients. Disappointing level of support for sharing thought leadership at conferences in the Agile Community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistency in what is promised when new folks are recruited as compared what is provided after starting.

    I have been working at cPrime

    Pros

    The cPrime team has always helped me find great paying contracts at amazing companies and working on cutting edge projects. They have always stayed in touch with me and sponsored lunches and happy hours for their teams at the various clients I have worked at for them. I received a $1,000 credit to their training department and used it to get my Certified ScrumMaster designation. cPrime's focus on the Agile framework keeps them on the cutting edge and working with the best companies in the Bay Area. Overall I have been very happy with everyone I have come into contact with at cPrime.

    Cons

    Their payment terms were a little weak when I first started with them but they resolved that quickly and are now on a solid Bi-Monthly payment cycle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. It's working!

    Was a contractor for them.....There are better agencies out there

    I worked at cPrime full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    none that no other agency offers

    Cons

    cPrime hired me to be a contractor at one of their client sites. They claimed to value their employees but clearly only cared about you in terms of a revenue generator for them. Insincere, unprofessional and amateurs. Their staffing specialist and account managers, even their VP were unpolished almost to the point of embarrassing. One of their recruiters sent me an email after I left them for another agency and scolded me like she was my mother. I sent that email around to several people at their client site and we all had a good laugh at their immaturity. Pay is not great, benefits are not great, no perks, lousy management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With so many agencies to choose from, what sets you apart is how you treat people. In your case, left a very bad impression on me which I have passed onto other potential employees as well as employers looking for an agency to staff for them.
