    I worked at Altus Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Altus Group is growing which can be seen as a positive. Other than that there is not much more I can positively about Altus Group.

    Cons

    There is no HR support. People are let go if you don't fall into the business unit leaders mold of what type of an employee they want - say yes and shut up - don't ask questions.

    Advice to Management

    they don't listen anyway.

    Great people, benefits, fkexibility, great vacation time, but need to pay more for the work.

    Cons

    Lacking in training for various job related systems.

    Need to work on the new hire onboarding processes. For example, give new employee a sortable online directory of company emoloyees with departments and titles so they have more of an idea who to call for various work related items.

    I have been working at Altus Group full-time

    Pros

    Industry defining technology and services have created a powerful story and potentially a market changing set of product and services.

    Cons

    Lots of changes in management. Acquisitions provide new capabilities but have led to a lack of focus in product and management.

    Advice to Management

    There's a need to focus more on employees rather than overall company vision. Employees feel isolated from both clients and products and a lack of training compounds these issues.

    Pros

    It all depends on your boss. I had a great boss for 2 years. Great flexibility, great environment, relaxed, etc., I know others who have had terrible experiences.

    Cons

    Hard to move up unless you are in the consulting side of the business. Management is not very approachable. They are heavily focused on their stock price which means they are at the whims of their stock holders.

    They don't care about their people too much. I watched several good employees have a bad month and were let go, or the shareholders wanted higher profit margins and so they let people go despite the fact that they were still a profitable company. After my really great boss left, the organization quickly felt very greedy.

    I had also been promised a bonus "next year" twice. Never received it. Under my great boss, he got me an 11% raise, and under my not so great boss 3%. The company is very profitable, but greedy.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and care about your people more than your shareholders. I doubt they will as they are heavily incentivized by bonuses which come as a result of doing what the shareholders want.
