I worked at Blue Canopy full-time (More than 3 years)
Lots of career growth
Family like atmosphere, outside events
Opportunity to learn anything and everything
Super people to work with, teamwork is valued
Pay and bonuses were fair and always pleasant
when I left I was a much better person than walking in
Like with any consulting firm, its controlled by the client. Unfortunately the client I worked with started restricting anything that was a "luxury" for a contractor such as teleworking. In addition on govt holidays we didnt' receive, we were forced to take PTO
Also if you aren't in with the right people/management you won't progress as fast as those that are, its also become a culture of how fast things can go as you become more experienced with processes, and sometimes you can get screwed depending on what your task is and who you are working with
Advice to Management
Don't make it a race to get promoted, it breeds too much competitiveness and bitterness. The same people end up getting promoted every year due to who they are "in" with.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Blue Canopy (Washington, DC) in August 2017.
Went through a recruiter however day of interview told needed to reschedule and they outright cancelled! In my fifteens year career I have never come across this type of situation where a company does not reschedule.
