    I have been working at Baker Hill full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a very fast-paced and growing environment with lots of opportunity for those who want it. I came here because of the opportunity to create, grow, and be part of something special. Baker Hill has not failed to deliver that and more. The people have an entrepreneurial spirit and can do attitude. I truly enjoy coming to work every day and feel I have grown personally and professionally.

    Cons

    Because it is such a fast-paced environment you have to be a self-starter, if not you will not fit the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow your employees as the great people they are and communicate the goals and vision of the Company to everyone consistently so they can see the bigger picture with you. Continue to innovate for the future. With the exception of HR, senior leadership needs to be more visible and accessible, talk to your employees more, listen more to their views, and involve them more in the decision making process. The key is developing people; you do that by building up people and holding them accountable.

    I have been working at Baker Hill full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of positive change since the separation from Experian. The company is growing very quickly and hiring a lot of new associates. The change and growth has opened opportunities for current employees to advance within the company. The company is investing a lot in the technology and products.

    Cons

    Change.... This is pro for me, but many long term associates find the change as a con. All change causes some level of frustration.

    Advice to Management

    Create a strategic plan and stick with it!

    Pros

    The original founder established great culture around work/life balance, time with family, etc. Casual dress code and people are laid back.

    Cons

    Small company culture changed when it was acquired by Experian. Now have more corporate controls and less flexibility, and a bit of the original culture has been lost.

    Advice to Management

    Make a point to get to know the employees on a personal level on each visit. Try to have lunch or coffee and meet a few more employees each time.

    I have been working at Baker Hill full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO is the only benefit I can think of

    Cons

    Lots of cons. People getting let go left and right and budgets slashed all the time, yet waste of funds is obvious. All but one or two of the C-level execs fly in every week from their various homes, then fly home on thursday or friday. They could easily hire local subpar C-levels and get the same results without wasting the money on travel. They waste tons of money on outside agencies that contribute very little. Communication within my own department is practically nonexistent, making it difficult to do my job effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together.

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO an family atmosphere on the sales team of legacy employees

    Cons

    unrealistic goals, outdated product, and out of touch management. Not a good environment to expand your career, grow, or achieve. Its especially frustrating listening to the same ra-ra and crying from management when the reality hits them in the face.

    Additionally they have been altering reviews on the web on their product and company wherever they can. Part of a propaganda campaign.

    Pros

    The leadership team is trying very hard to make it a competitive growing company

    Cons

    There doing it by cutting back everywhere. Benefits were promised to be better after the spin off from Experian when in reality they were worse. New osterity measures have been implemented so reimbursements are worse. A annual review process is finally in place so that there may be salary increases this year after none last year. People are being let go from an already short handed development staff while projects are behind schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better if you want to be able to hire anyone good
