Systems Evolution – Why Work For Us?

We’re constantly striving to be the very best, but one thing’s missing: you. At SEI, we stock our team with the industry’s finest consultants so that each of our offices is strong, skilled, creative, and diverse. We’re always looking for passionate, dedicated consultants with industry experience and local expertise. If this sounds like you, take a look at one of our eight local offices to find out more about their unique corporate culture and job opportunities.

Take a Peek Inside Our Office's

More than anything else, our people are what make us different. As an employee-owned company, our consultants aren’t just doing a job — they’re building a business, delivering value to our clients, and taking on leadership roles in their communities. Each and every one of our consultants has their own story to tell. Everyone in our company brings their own unique combination of work experience, industry background, and charitable causes that they’re passionate about.

What drives you? What motivates you? The answer probably isn’t “checking boxes” or “completing tasks” — it certainly isn’t for us. Our passion and our driving purpose is to make an impact, both for the clients we serve and the communities we inhabit. As trusted advisors to our clients, we deliver solutions that move the needle for their businesses. And as members of our communities, we take pride in being a force for good through charitable participation and local involvement.

SEI is proud of the comprehensive offerings we have built to serve our clients over the past 25 years. Our services range from strategic planning to the management of the critical projects enabling your success.

    I have been working at Systems Evolution full-time


    It’s only been a few months since I joined SEI, but it has been a great experience so far. SEI is a flat organization where employees are treated like family, are all equally accountable and are empowered to be owners. This when combined with a warm, welcoming and fun culture makes SEI a delight and motivates you to put your best foot forward always.
    SEIers are talented, humble and approachable. Though spread across 9 cities, SEIers do a great job at collaborating and helping each other out. Need help on specific expertise, have a question to ask, looking for advice on best practices – reach out to the SEI network and sure enough, you’ll get the support you need with a quick turnaround time. Though this is not an uncommon feature in many organizations, my experience here has been far better.
    Since SEI works on a local consulting model, consultants across projects make time to get to know each other - whether its grabbing lunch together, meeting for a cup of coffee, or hanging out after work over a couple of drinks. (Needless to say, the biggest benefit of local consulting is returning home to spend time with your family every day).

    Autonomous, empowering, ownership model, experienced consultants, fun culture, approachable leadership


    The interview process may seem long (and SEI is working on bringing in efficiencies here). Having said that, the process is structured to give candidates an equal opportunity to interview SEI as well. From my experience, I got a good sense of the people I’ll be working with, which made my transition into SEI quite seamless.

    Advice to Management

    SEI’s strategic anchors have served it well and should therefore be protected

    Technical Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Systems Evolution (Cincinnati, OH) in October 2010.


    "The Gauntlet" is a series of 5-10 interviews where the candidate is met with questions regarding their job skills, ideals, personality and social skills. It can feel a bit daunting at first, but as the process goes on you get a good pulse on the people and the company at which you're applying. It's a good process, and yet another example of how this company has put a lot of thought into a common problem and has come up with a rather unique solution that works very well.

    Interview Questions

    • I was tasked with writing code in any language on a napkin that should compile and that implemented a "Fizz Buzz" test.

      Fizz Buzz:
      "Write a program that prints the numbers from 1 to 100. But for multiples of three print “Fizz” instead of the number and for the multiples of five print “Buzz”. For numbers which are multiples of both three and five print “FizzBuzz”."   1 Answer


    I found my offer to be quite fair and felt negotiation was not necessary.
