    I have been working at Centauri full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Personable Local Management, Very smart/intelligent/educated employees, good benefits overall, stellar educational reimbursement, very competitive salary, trusting

    Cons

    Not many cons apply to this company that do not also apply to other contracting/consulting firms. There's a lot of feeling like the business side of the company is completely out of touch with the contractors on client sites, but this is typical. Company is growing very fast, but no longer offers ESOP. Company is now owned by venture capital firm, so change is common, but they embrace it by motivational company cheerleading, offering company swag, and positive newsletter content, so it's not necessarily all bad.

    Advice to Management

    Try to relate more to the contractors not in the main office. Other than that, keep going. Things are great at Centauri.
