      I worked at The Breakaway Group full-time (More than 8 years)

      Pros

      The Breakaway Group does something courageous. If you have a great attitude, want to work for something larger than a paycheck and truly perform – it is a wonderful place to work. However, if you are self-absorbed, entitled and non-productive, this is a tough place to work. The culture is for those of high performance and it perfectly removes those who choose to spend time complaining. (The bulk of those who use this medium to complain fall into that category.)

      Cons

      The company had to go through a transformation when Xerox acquired it three years ago. Any small business that creates enough value to be attractive to the likes of Xerox goes through a grieving period typical to any loss. In this case, the quarterly push from a publically traded company detracts from some of the original creativity. The value of course from Xerox is the financial stability. Decent tradeoff.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to run a transparent organization, share information, involve people. The "fun" aspect that has always been the hallmark of TBG needs to continue. Don't let the complainers and naysayers steal the agenda...
