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 worked at Systems Evolution full-time (More than 8 years)


    I was a proud SEI consultant for 7+ years. I was no stranger to consulting prior to joining and quickly realized that SEI was a special place. Consultants are very fairly compensated, offered opportunities to engage / help drive the business and have a good work/life balance. Like most things in life, you get out of SEI what you put into it. It's not a place for those looking to punch-in and punch-out. It's entrepreneurial in nature and employee owned. That is, consultants share the profits and have the opportunity to buy stock in the company. This gets you skin in the game and a sense of ownership, which motivates you to work on finding ways to move the needle for YOUR company.

    I would have never left SEI if it weren't for an amazing opportunity that came my way. It was hard to leave and I will always be an SEI'er. If you want to be challenged, work on meaty projects and be part of a special company - SEI is worth serious consideration.


    None. Loved my time with SEI.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Systems Evolution.


    It was intense. Lots of meetings over a short period of time. I engaged in 8 either face to face or phone calls with 6 different people. Unfortunately, after 8 meetings, they did not make me an offer, which of course was disappointing, but I understood. They were very professional, very transparent, and you could tell they were really doing their due diligence to understand if I was a good fit. At the end, they determined I wasn't, and quite frankly, I'm glad they didn't just extend an offer out of obligation, rather, they showed discipline and professionalism in making sure they only hire the absolute best fits. I honestly believe this is a great company - really glad I was able to meet them.
