    I worked at Cartesian full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good, nurturing environment - there is good camaraderie between employees, and people are very willing to help each other.

    Cons

    The company had lost direction, and its management was spending its time fighting fires due to cash flow problems rather than addressing business opportunities and understanding market direction

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

    Pros

    - Great and friendly team, who are willing to help - Work-life balance is good

    Cons

    In essence, company turmoil due to poor financial performance for the past several years (hence being recently bought out by a private equity firm to avoid bankruptcy) has made Cartesian an unattractive proposition: - Progression much easier if you're one of the senior management's favourites, with the office acutely aware who is a favourite, leading to an overall reduction in company morale - Salary pales in comparison to similar jobs in other consultancies - Selling low-value work / undercharging for work to win business; the end result being uninteresting projects are done or delivering (good work) on projects that should be paying out more - No clue about strategic direction - at the very least, most projects the Strategy team do aren't truly strategic in nature - Training opportunities are very limited
