I worked at Optimization Consulting full-time (More than a year)
I can't honestly think of one positive short of the higher pay, but even that was because they couldn't or wouldn't keep people around long enough to get things done.
Honestly, I wouldn't be writing this now unless I had seen the random posting for job openings with this company on glassdoor. But I feel that anyone who applies here should be given fair warning as to the type of management and environment they can likely expect. This business is owned and "run" by a family who has very little experience in running a proper business. The extreme level of incompetence of this family has led to a number of business practices which only served to bring them to the state they are in today. Payroll checks routinely bounced if they were even paid on time. Benefits were canceled and barely reinstated a few times. Employees were regularly hired and terminated within short periods of time. Anyone who had an ounce of expertise was seen as a threat and was routinely purged without remorse. Weekend work and late nights were expected and demanded year-round. There was very little transparency and what little information was released to employees was spun so far out of context as to make it look like the government agency with which they had their contracts was the bad guy.
Advice to Management
Stop protecting the incompetent family and stop surrounding yourself with "yes men." Get employees that are qualified to do the jobs that need to be done and heed their advice. Taking your cues from others who have no prior business experience or are the ones at fault for the mismanagement of company funds is the surest way to keep yourself out of business. Wake up.
