    I worked at Centare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent place to start if you're a beginner. A solid work culture that was very welcoming and collaborative. This is one of the best learning environments I have ever been in for an extended period of time. Wonderful opportunities to really sharpen your craft. Honest feedback and willingness to share knowledge between different practices. There were always questions that were enthusiastically answered.

    Cons

    There was little marketing effort for Centare. Hence, lost opportunities to gain prospective clients or general exposure for Centare. I noticed the upper management communication is poor. Unfortunately not only towards the employees but unfortunately our clients as well. The constructed teams at times were not able to provide the best for our client's needs (e.g., did not have enough experience in a certain area or provided enough horsepower to provide enough deliverable work). This can be a very difficult position as a consultant to be in. Especially when there's the amount of work is promised over a certain amount of time. No to mention the with very limited resources and instructed to not go over the 40-hour workweek.

    I have been working at Centare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Opportunities to learn new skills in a mix of engagements -Set up your own advancement track -- you don't have to be in leadership to advance -Get involved where you want to: whether you want to just come to work, get involved with the technical community, or contribute other ways. -The people here are really good, smart and friendly

    Cons

    -With people sometimes being out of office the communication can be difficult at times. The managers do their best with weekly 1-1 touchpoint meetings.

    Pros

    Not even sure where to start! Centare has been on my radar for quite some time as a local employer of choice. With some new leadership in the past six months, Centare is poised for some significant growth in the upcoming years with new service offerings and go to market strategies to help our customers. And the culture is amazing - just what I have been searching for. The company has a lot of extremely talented and passionate employees that care about the work and their fellow employees. There are a lot of community engagement talks, lunch n learns, and social events.

    Cons

    Nothing right now - keep doing what we are doing.

    Pros

    Centare is one of those places where your friend tells you about job and you hope that you one day find yourself there, luckily that happened to me! From the first meetup I went to that was hosted by Centare, I thought something was different about the company. The employees that were at the meetup were friendly, happy to help, and seemed more like they were at home than at work. Fast forward a few months and one of their recruiters, Jenny, reached out to me. The positions they were looking to fill and my skill set didn’t like up perfectly, but we kept an open line of communication as we went through the process. A few phone calls and interviews later I found myself with a new job, exciting times! If I didn’t already feel welcomed before, I certainly did after my first day at the company. Transitioning and starting a new job is difficult, but the team at Centare made it a simple, easy, and a down right pleasure. In my first few months, I found myself not on a client engagement but that left no shortage of opportunities to ramp up my knowledge of technologies to be used in the future or dive into internal projects. Fast forward to today and I am currently on an internal Scrum team working in a way that I hoped for when I initially got into this career field. In terms of day to day and overall benefits of working at Centare itself, I am extremely satisfied with what’s available. Excellent benefits (insurance, PTO, and more) as well as an energetic environment to work in and people to work alongside with. Lastly, Centare enables to do whatever you want (within reason!). You want to teach an internal class on technology ‘X’, go for it. Start a club about solving rubik’s cube on Tuesday evening, all you. While I moved to Wisconsin for reasons outside of employment, after working at Centare I would’ve gladly moved here for the job alone.

    Cons

    In my current situation... none :)

  8. "Excellent career growth"

    I worked at Centare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Centare is a great place to learn and grow and build friendships. They are extremely supportive and everyone is very passionate about improving. As a consultant, if you just show up and bill at the client you'll do alright. But if you participate in activities and communicate to everyone where you want to take your career then doors will open up for you quickly. Don't just talk to your direct manager though, communicate with everyone. Management is very open to hearing ideas from people and love it when employees bring their passions to the workplace.

    Cons

    It does take effort to attend all of the events and get to know everyone there above and beyond the typical 40 hour work day. Totally worth it though.

    I have been working at Centare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I expressed an interest to become a part-time consultant manager during my career growth discussions with my manager. Centare has been growing and has hired several new consultants recently, resulting in a need for more consultant managers. My manager remembered my interest and asked me if I was still interested. I am now following a management onboarding program that will gradually transition me to a hybrid role of consultant manager and billable consultant. I appreciate that my manager heard me, remembered my interest, and is supporting me as I go through the transition process.

    Cons

    Nothing for me at this time.

    Lack of Direction, Lack of training and ramp up

    Centare Response

    This is Jake. We’re glad to hear that you’re enjoying your experience overall, but can see there are some questions to answer around direction. As far as training and ramp up, we hope that our revamped CAP program will provide more training options. I hope you’ll schedule some time with me to discuss any of these areas further. Thank you for feedback.
