    I worked at BTS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    BTS looks like the perfect company on paper. The benefits are great. There is unlimited vacation and plenty of holidays. There are snacks in the kitchens. The work environment is open. You get to work with some great people all over the world and pretty cool technology. If you like to travel, BTS is a great place.

    Cons

    Once you open up the hood at this company, you realize they are constantly hanging by a thread, just barely making deadlines, team members working until all hours, nights and weekends just to squeak by. Their contracts don't work. Their promises to clients often aren't reasonable. They don't understand what it takes to be at the forefront of delivering high quality, cutting edge digital solutions to clients.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a CTO and COO who will standardize processes that work from the top down with a true appreciation for what BTS has to offer.

    I have been working at BTS full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fun, intelligent, colleagues. Challenging and interesting work. Access and exposure to high ranking client executives. Opportunities to learn about different companies and industries and to work on a variety of projects at once. Small company so good opportunity to make an impact and be noticed for your work. Fantastic travel opportunities within the US and all over the world. If you like to travel, this is a great job!

    Cons

    If you don't like to travel and/or are not willing to work long hours to succeed, then this will be tough for you as a consultant. The company is still small and has some hiccups with systems and processes but they are working all the time to improve those.

    Advice to Management

    Keep cultivating the great culture. Find ways for people to move into different roles as they get older and want to travel less or focus on certain things.

    I worked at BTS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good, smart people who do their absolute best in serving the client. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Firm has not integrated acquisitions that were made seven years ago. The New York office lacks strong leadership. Put an end to the "fiefdoms" in the office. Stop the bleeding in revenues as well as turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the value proposition and strategy. Integrate the leadership and sales offerings. Instill a sense of "One BTS" in the New York office.
