I have been working at pureIntegration, LLC full-time (More than 3 years)
I wanted to post my experience at pureIntegration, as it has been quite positive and I find that online reviews tend to skew towards the negative, since those folks are often the most motivated to post their opinions.
I have worked at multiple Business/IT Consulting companies and PI is by far the best one. With regular Director meetings/check-ins, a mentorship program, and team-building engagements, employees are made to feel as though their professional growth is valued and that they are not simply a means towards an end. Employees are given ample opportunities to follow their passions, with PI being very supportive of innovation and pursuing new opportunities and lines of business based on individuals' areas of interest.
The company has also been very supportive of employees who find themselves "on the bench" in between projects - just be sure to stay engaged, coordinating on how you can contribute and working with your Director to identify new opportunities.
Last, but not least, I have been treated very well in terms of compensation, with a biannual bonus based on performance and, if you earn it, a reasonable annual raise.
In summary, working at pureIntegration is what you make of it - they are not going to hold your hand or constantly check in on you, but if you put in the effort to stay engaged and be part of the team (in addition to your client work), it is a great organization to be a part of!
Being that this is a consulting company spread out across multiple cities and clients, your experience may vary based on your director/location/client/project.
The biggest challenge for pureIntegration, like any small-to-medium consulting firm, is the (relatively) limited number of clients and projects. At times, they will not be able to offer you the flexibility and range that a larger firm can in terms of project availability.
Oftentimes, you may be on a project with few or no other team members from PI. This, combined with the geographic disbursement of folks, can make it easy to feel disconnected - if you don't put in the effort to connect with the team! Those who do will find a experienced network available to support them.
Advice to Management
Continue expanded efforts to attract new clients and lines of business - the biggest risk to the company is being at the whims of a few major customers.
Ensure team members are getting the support they need with more regular check-ins and team building events.
Keep up your open-minded attitude towards innovation!
I interviewed at pureIntegration, LLC (Herndon, VA) in February 2017.
Was contacted by HR, completed a phone interview, and then was brought in for 3 in-person interviews. I met with the CEO and 2 directors. After that round of interviews, I spoke to a VP on the phone (as he was located across the country).
