I worked at Systems Evolution full-time (More than 3 years)
The company is an incredible aggregator of exceptional talent. The highest financial-IQs of anywhere I've worked - because every employee is an investor, a shareholder, a owner. The hiring, and interviewing is robust, and meets or exceeds every 'best-practice' I've ever read.
The con for me was the type of work. I didn't 'grow up' professionally in the IT/big data world, and the consulting just wasn't that fun, for me. But for those of you who are called to this type of work, there's no better place in the world for experienced consultants.
Advice to Management
Keep. It. Up.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Systems Evolution (Cincinnati, OH) in February 2017.
I applied online through an ad on LinkedIn on January 24th. Got an email to set up a phone interview on Feb 5th. Initial phone interview happened on Feb 9th, it lasted 45 minutes. Phone call was a screening interview with an HR consultant, I was told that a report of my answers would be submitted to SEI for further consideration.
