    Pros

    CapTech is what happens when you take a thousand people who have the experience of being "the smartest person in the room" and you put them all in one office together. This is a culture where people talk excitedly about technologies and development methodologies and where curiosity and innovation are highly valued.

    After working as a permanent employee for most of my career, the variety of consulting is very stimulating.

    Consulting opens up more career opportunities than working as a permanent staff member. To be promoted as permanent staff, you have to wait for a position to open up (and some of your managers were promoted not because they were ready but because they were the ones available when the last guy left - now they aren't going anywhere and neither are you!)

    Cons

    Internal support for employees on more difficult client assignments could be better.

    Advice to Management

    All consultants - even those in a technical Practice Area - are management consultants. Whether we're going to a client to help with Change Management or to build an API or to create a report, we're all going in to our client site to model good business and development practices and to guide our clients to better practices, but I don't see this as something that very many technical people at CapTech think about or do consciously. Internal workshops for SI and DA consultants to build their management toolkits might be a way to help us serve our clients better.

    Some of our client environments are great, some are just okay, and some slide all the way to toxic. That's part of the job, but I think we could do that job better with formal internal support structures. Experimenting with things like "safe place to vent" support groups, or working to raise employee awareness about ways to maintain emotional health while in stressful situations might uncover ways to help us stay emotionally centered with our clients, which means better service for our clients and happier lives for us.

    Just reaching out to employees whose timesheets show that they're logging a lot of billable overtime to offer to cover the cost of services to help restore work/life balance would be welcome. When you're putting in 50+ hours week after week, things like mowing the lawn, cleaning the house, or getting childcare support on evenings and weekends so that you can work either just stop happening or else you have to hire babysitter/cleaning service/lawn mowing services. Whether you choose the strain of a more disorderly home environment or the financial strain of paying for services, it becomes impossible to escape the additional personal stress that compounds with the stress that comes from working for a demanding/dysfunctional client (and if the client had its act together, it wouldn't be solving its problems with overtime). CapTech is collecting payment for those extra hours, it would be nice if they didn't leave their employees to cover all the extra costs of working them.
