    - No downsides to speak of.

    Pros

    It's like a family. This is the best company I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    Growing pains operationally as the company scales nationally.

    Advice to Management

    The onshore, offshore argument is not a winning strategy. Stay out of politics, especially interviews that insinuate CapTech benefits from Trump's policies- the buy American debate. Try to contain your excitement.

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

    Pros

    CapTech values my work/life balance more than any company that I've worked at before. Of course, there are always projects or times of the year when more focus must be on work than elsewhere, but in my four years at CapTech I've always seen leadership want to 'pay it back' to their employees so that overall their value and time is known and appreciated. I have had many ups and downs as I continue to learn and grow in my career, and I have continued to look to the people at CapTech as part of my family - always there to celebrate my successes and help me excel through my growing pains.

    Cons

    Thought leadership exists here but it is not pervasive throughout the company yet. There is definitely some discombobulation with national growth (mostly internally) as we continue to work out who is responsible for what (there is overlap in consultants' internal responsibilities). There is few training to advance your skills/career past the manager level (sales training, how to grow an account, how to expand thought leadership) so you have to rely more on a "try and see" and loose mentoring approach.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on training middle management to become future leaders; keep refining our internal reaction to national growth

    Pros

    It's a company that lives and breaths its core values. The fact that they hire proactively based off of skill set and not for any exact position or role has allowed them to grow without sacrificing the culture. CapTech has a great flat culture with a family feel. Love this place!

    Cons

    There is a degree of disorganization that is natural in a company transitioning from a regional to national presence.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rocking!

    I have been working at CapTech full-time

    Pros

    My favorite thing about working for CapTech is the culture. The people I work with have become more than coworkers--we're now actual friends. I love all the opportunities to hang out--from happy hours to office parties to company meetings.

    Another pro could be a con for some, but I appreciate the opportunities for internal work. The nature of consulting is that you don't always get clients or billable work that are fun or exciting. There are many opportunities to use your passions for internal work--whether it's designing a new website for a local charity, planning company events, or representing CapTech at professional events across the country.

    My last pro is the structure they have in place for performance reviews and raises. In addition to reliable schedules for both of these, CapTech also offers bonuses and other incentives based off company performance.

    Cons

    The nature of consulting is that you don't always get a dream project that fulfills all your passions. I don't think that's CapTech specific, but it's a realistic con that happens in our world.

    The other issue, at least in some of the remote offices, is that many consultants sit on client sites and only get to visit the CapTech offices for events and meetings. That can cause some people to feel excluded from the day-to-day at CapTech.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose the small-company feeling. Continue to create a culture where everyone is proud to be a part--especially those who have to work remotely.

    Pros

    Worked with many great people with amazing skills, knowledge and personalities. Most management is down to earth. It's easy to "drink the Koolaid" because the majority of those who work there are all about the company and it's growth and success.

    Cons

    There was a running joke that if you make the "100%" club you were doing it wrong. And to a degree that's true. If your client required extra work for the job then you do what you have to do. But to praise those who didn't find a work/life balance in a company that supposedly supports and touts it seems backward. Better staffing, BD, and Sales promises are necessary.

    Interpersonal relationships. Often times, as you could find in other establishments, you work with people and become comfortable with the nature of the work relationship that you don't realize that people don't really have your back or support you. Saw a lot on the consulting side, but also internally. If someone doesn't like you or your work, it clouds everything.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to nurture the culture you set out to have. Be more cognizant of management-to-peer relationships. Be open to all feedback. Consider upward reviews of managements from employees.

    Pros

    CapTech truly cares about their client success and is led by consistent, people-empowering leadership that has grown the company 10-20% every year for the past 10 years. Behind closed doors, people seek out the best options for clients, managers are rewarded for fostering success in those they manage - there is no hoarding of glory. Many clients have asked to consider working with them but the opportunities, management, and direction of CapTech makes it a no-brainer to stay.

    Cons

    Given the entrepreneurial spirit, it can be easy to overcommit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the humble, smart leadership. You're personal knowledge of consultants and humility are awesome.

    Pros

    - Work with smart people
    - Work on interesting projects
    - Some flexibility with scheduling depending upon client assignment
    - Research and training is greatly encouraged for personal and client development

    Cons

    Benefits could be improved. This tech company seems to be behind the times versus other newer tech companies when it comes to benefits such as parental leave policy, healthy free snacks, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Improving the company benefits to be on par with younger tech companies may increase hiring of talented people and improve employee retention.
