I have been working at SDLC Partners full-time (More than 3 years)
SDLC is a great place to begin or expand your career. I have played 4 different roles in my 4+ years with the firm. Each move gave me an opportunity to stretch my skills. I was very disappointed to read my colleagues’ comments about being prejudiced, which is why I felt compelled to write a review. I think the exact opposite is true. I find SDLC to be very diverse and this diversity is why we’ve been so successful. Women/men, all races are treated equally. Unfortunately my colleague has his/her facts mixed up because we have many non-whites in Sr. Consultant, Manager, and Sr. Manager roles in the company. Oh, and by the way, they got there by demonstrating the competencies SDLC requires for the role. Hiring and promotions are based on competencies and it is clear what it takes to be promoted at SDLC. I think the issue is that people don’t want to work for promotions. They expect to be promoted after working in a role for a year. It’s not about time in role it’s about consistent demonstration of competencies. You have to earn it. Something many people don’t think about today. If you’re not clear what you need to do to grow and be promoted, you should talk to your Manager or someone in HR. It’s not about race or gender! How do you walk the halls with your colleagues when you are filled with such negativity? I have a suggestion. Use your perspectives to bring forth constructive feedback and potential solutions. If that doesn’t work, maybe it’s time to look for a new job.
Yes, SDLC has growing pains. What company doesn’t when they’ve grown so quickly over such a short period of time? Let’s quit complaining and try to make change!
Advice to Management
Continue to communicate across the organization regarding client progress and employee development.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at SDLC Partners in November 2015.
Initial 10-15 minute screening call with the recruiter followed by couple of IKM assessment tests to be taken within 1 week (Results will not be shared with you). 2 Skype interviews to to evaluate your technical, functional, departmental/practice and organizational alignment to the firm.
