    I have been working at Catapult Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Catapult is a great place to work, and below are only just a few reasons why:
    Bring the team attitude - everyone works together and we work hard.
    Catapult recognizes employees that make a difference - and often.
    Catapult promotes to higher-level positions (including management) from within - great opportunities for the right leaders. Not everyone needs/wants to be a manager, but there are plenty of leadership opportunities.
    Catapult's management team (GMs through most senior execs) is approachable and supportive. There's a strong sense of family at all levels.

    Cons

    None whatsoever. Catapult is a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    The company is doing an excellent job transforming to a total-solutions approach as well as globally. I don't understand any of the negative reviews on Glassdoor, as I have nothing but great experiences - it is a shame that disgruntled individuals can wield so much influence on the rankings of a great company! Keep looking out for and grooming your key contributors and embrace them.

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

    Pros

    This company truly stands behind their brand promises with clients and with their employees. I've never worked for a company that actually value their employees opinions and feedback. They also highly recommend continue education, even include an in-depth training database, to further your career path. Catapult Culture is contagious and is visible from the top down.

    Cons

    The Phoenix office still feels like a start up office even though it's been established for 6 years.

    Cons

    Not many I can think of.

    I have been working at Catapult Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging work, good pay, incredibly strong team mentality, managers allow autonomy without letting things go off the rails.
    Frequent and well-planned team building activities and events, and a culture that's cool enough to not feel corporate, but not so hipster-y that we all need mustache wax and scarves... ;)

    Cons

    At times you're going to feel like you're alone against a client or a situation, and if you don't force yourself to reach out for help you will be.

    Oh, and the 401k match is a joke. I guess there has to be one hard negative!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, shoot high, and encourage us to follow.
    Oh, and keep Catapult fun... there's no sense in making money hand-over-fist if you're doing it by selling your soul, and our soul is fun!

    I have been working at Catapult Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A really sharp group of people with great personalities which results in a positive, can-do team atmosphere. I feel like Catapult really cares about me and my peers and shows it in both big (benefit additions and improvements, ability to earn variable and salary increases) and small ways (happy hours, core value awards, celebrations of personal milestones, fun activities etc). My managers over the years have been highly competent in their field, professionally supportive, and personally invested in me. I've been able to develop new skills and hone them. A great place to learn, grow - and stay.

    Cons

    Need better ways to focus on professional development without impacting utilization. Would be nice to hear directly from executive leadership more often than every 4-5 months.....though the Q&A event last week was a good add.

    Pros

    - Great culture of people who love people and love their work . (I can't stress this enough. These are really terrific people.)

    - Reasonable pay/comp' for the industry, and great pay in relation to work/life balance expectations

    Cons

    - Still growing in the mid-size company range and lacking some processes, but are actively working to improve this.

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on improving internal systems and putting in place processes and templates to streamline the contracting and administration elements of projects

    I worked at Catapult Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Catapult tends to allow you a certain amount of freedom so that you can manage your work.

    Cons

    If you are new there tends to be a lot of micro-management and reporting that would be required.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate business model. Changes from the last 3 years are having a negative affect on client retention. Client retention will be a greatly needed component of the business model in the future.
