    I worked at Cartesian full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company used to be a great place. Not anymore. New CEO and CFO are ruining company.

    Cons

    All senior people have left in consulting team. Office has been cut in half. Sublet office space to save money. Almost all new hires are leaving and looking for new jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe hire a new management team is the answer. Otherwise company will not make it another year

    Pros

    Cartesian is the best consulting company I have worked for and I have worked for a number of them. They treat you well and they are not a body shop that just wants to place you and be an outsourcing agency. They work with you to find the best opportunity for both sides. They are a true consulting company and value your input.

    Cons

    Communication can be slow to come from the top but that is improving.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do best and don't try to be one of the crowd of outsourcing companies.
