I have been working at Paragon Solutions full-time
• If you are motivated, there are ample opportunities to grow professionally and influence the business. • There are a handful of incredible managers at the company. If you are lucky enough to work for one, you will learn a ton and be fully supported in your own development. • Employees are generally friendly and nice. • Work hours and location are often flexible. • The company is somewhat entrepreneurial, so there is freedom to operate autonomously.
• Behind the times: There’s not much innovation or creativity at Paragon. Compared to the competition, Paragon’s business model, approach, and outcomes seem outdated. Client deliverables lack the polish and style of competitors. • Talent gap: Paragon has a really hard time attracting and retaining smart, high-energy people. It’s a very average group of folks doing average (or less) quality work • Lack of diversity: Employees are overwhelmingly white, male, and middle aged. • Outdated sales and delivery approach that relies on schmoozing rather than truly understanding the market, where the company fits, and how it can get ahead.
Advice to Management
What may have worked 20 years ago will not work today. Clients expect innovative, compelling, high-quality work. Talking and schmoozing are not enough to remain competitive. If you want to attract top talent, start by rebranding the organization with an emphasis on innovation. Couple the rebranding with an internal scrub of all legacy/outdated business practices. Look to industry leaders for inspiration, rather than the past.
