    I worked at 3Pillar Global (More than a year)

    Pros

    Absolutely loved the company and the folks who work there. It is a "team work" environment where you can grow new friendships as well as achieve success in your career. The company has a formula like no other for success and client satisfaction. I would recommend them to anyone looking to innovate software product development and generate revenue. Once you meet the CEO David DeWolf you will understand why the company is so successful.

    Cons

    Turnover was a setback but was necessary for the success of the company to move forward. Great team now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going. You are way ahead of your time with product development and before you know it, you will be on the Fortune 100 companies list.

    I worked at 3Pillar Global (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They found me a good contract job with a good company. I really enjoyed my contract position, and the people I had the opportunity to work with.

    Cons

    My contract was extended several times but no one from 3Pillar called me to discuss, the manager at the business I was contracting for would ask if I wanted to continue. Any communication with 3Pillar after the start date was initiated by me.

    Advice to Management

    Realize I am an employee of 3Pillar and they need to discuss and communicate with me.

    Pros

    Great experience joining a high growth company in it's very early stages. Was able to participate in many strategic conversations at a very dynamic time in the economy and the company. Got to do some amazing work with high caliber colleagues.

    Cons

    Too much focus on investor value versus ability to execute. Never felt like we had clear visibility as to what the company was growing so quickly to become. Many changing/ overlapping roles and responsibilities that netted hollow titles with no accountability.

    Advice to Management

    It's hard to build a winning culture around growth for growth's sake if there is no alignment of incentives for employees.

    It's hard to be both a high end and low end provider.

    I have been working at 3Pillar Global full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Executives are accessible, managers are reasonable, coworkers are pleasant and competent, work is (usually) interesting, the office environment is relaxed.

    Cons

    Sometimes isolated from coworkers due to the consulting nature of the work. The Fairfax office is a bit generic and corporate, albeit nice enough.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging feedback from the people in the trenches, we greatly appreciate feeling like we have your ear in most matters.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Great values and direction from the senior management.

    Cons

    More growth opportunities for developers. If your a Project or Program Manager you would be better suited to work for a consulting company who's core focus/industry is Project/Program Management.

    Pros

    High adherence to stated values, especially integrity. Management genuinely cares about employees. It's a fun environment. Very good clients and projects. The company does innovative work for big names, like Geico and Capital One as well as some smaller companies.

    Cons

    The company is still working through some typical growing pains like building infrastructure. There is daily improvement in areas like systems and processes. Communication isn't always consistent.

    I have been working at 3Pillar Global full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to work with some cool technologies and interesting clients. Three Pillar does Agile right, for the most part. Reasonably good infrastructure, at least in the US. Excellent benefits with great medical and a 401(k) match.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement to executive levels in the organization, especially if you do not share a bond of faith or family with the CEO. The quality of staff on the distributed teams varies, and has gotten spottier as the organization has grown. The best people tend to move on when they are offered better opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Increase transparency about management decisions and incentive compensation. Diversify your executive team.
