Talent Development: SWC offers a formal mentorship program, hands-on training where employees ‘break and fix’ technologies, ‘lunch and learn’ sessions, paid technical and job related certifications, and online courses and workshops to ensure our employees’ professional skills are evolving with rapid changes in technology.

A Fun Place to Work: We work hard, but we also have a lot of fun. Work/life balance should be integrated into a career, and we make sure of this with fully subsidized optional outings such as Cubs games, boat rides, golf outings, birthday celebrations,BBQ Parties, and participating in competitive games like pie eating competitions, These are just some of the ways we let loose, laugh and forge life-long friendships.

Incentives: In addition to paid time off and holidays, hard work and dedication is rewarded with a generous incentive program. Monthly incentives are awarded for performance reaching or exceeding work utilization goals. We also have incentives for referring a new hire and assisting with closing a sale. In addition, we incentivize your efforts to learn new skills and complete certifications.

Transparency: As a team, every employee has a right to know where the company is and what the future holds. Once a year, we treat all employees to dinner where we open the books, share our profits and goals, and make sure everyone is informed and secure with where the company is headed.

Family Time: We work in a place full of people who love what they do, but at the end of the day, all of us love going home to the ones we share our lives with. It is this time away that makes us truly happy – and SWC believes that happy people make great employees.

Flex Time: We know our team works hard. We also know life can sometimes get in the way of a 9 to 5 schedule. We promote flex time to all of our full-time employees because no matter what time of day it is, we know our employees will always get the job done.

Fitness & Wellness: Yoga classes, monthly massages, weekly fresh fruit delivery and free fitness room access are just some of the many ways we bring health and wellness into the office.

Free Food & Drinks: We’re notorious for making sure our employees never go hungry or thirsty. A fridge-full of beverages and happy hour Fridays are just the tip of the iceberg. Come lunchtime, you’ll see the kitchen filled, often with catered food. Birthdays are also celebrated with a plethora of pies, cakes, cookies and more.

    I have been working at SWC Technology Partners full-time (More than 3 years)


    There are a lot of great reasons to work at SWC

    - Variety of technologies and roles
    - Do not have to be at a certain level to be put in any role on a project
    - Career direction controlled by each consultant
    - Hire within the team at all costs
    - Bring in good people at the right times
    - Tons of perks including food, beer on Friday, company wide events, and team events


    There are the obvious cons you see on the other reviews like no 401k match, do not have an opportunity to work from home or from downtown office but the good outweighs the bad

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow smart and make sure as changes in upper management happen that you continue to remember how it will affect the entire team. Be careful not to make decisions without thinking through the ripple effect.
