    I worked at Client Solution Architects full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good medical benefits for employee and family.

    Cons

    Low pay, uninterested management if you are at a client site. Senior management will make promises to the customers on your behalf without speaking with the employee and you expected to give the customer what they want, no matter how inappropriate. If the customer doesn't like you, you are gone; if you don't like the client, too bad - stay or quit. Too many conflicting directions. If you don't work at the main office, you are nobody. Very demoralizing environment.

    Advice to Management

    You are so out of touch with what is actually happening at the client sites. You need to listen. With so many people quitting, it is amazing that the thought that it may be you hasn't entered your mind.

    Pros

    Managers acknowledge excellence in performance, provide guidance and mentoring while leaving room for individual focus and growth. The teamwork with my group is great, and we all contribute. All perspectives matter and the focus is on doing what is best for our client, helping them to understand the issues and take the best path forward. The company pays all the health insurance premiums, so you only have your copay to worry about.

    Cons

    The company is growing, and so we have growing pains. Some internal actions take longer than you would like, but the heart is right and things work out in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on providing vision and direction, communication to the work force is key. Guidance Consulting is a great distinguishing aspect, make sure our customers know that we are all on board with that.

    Pros

    solid management structure / benefits and great for entry level associates or grads to start a career because the company is all about providing solid training and career coaching and of course providing exceptional client work. Lots of team building activities throughout the year and overall company benefits are great.

    Cons

    Low salary offer for experienced folks. They will use the company benefits (401k match, sick leave, no premium medical / dental insurance) to offer you lower salary package.

    Advice to Management

    The people (so called the Operations Team) who are billable to clients are the moneymakers for the company, so upper management should consider paying them more competitively so they will stick with the company longer.

    I worked at Client Solution Architects full-time

    Pros

    Team-oriented environment
    Work-life balance
    Great Benefits
    Fun people

    Cons

    Low pay
    "Profit Sharing"-- replaced bonuses and is broken down by: 1) tenure; 2) pay level (leaves many junior employees feeling unappreciated)
    Favoritism (especially in upper-management) when it comes to advancement

    Advice to Management

    Amend the advancement system--too rigorous/inflexible (in most cases)
    Put more effort into getting to know employees at all levels (the company is small enough to do so)

    Pros

    Health benefits, social events, tuition reimbursement, helpful leadership and many more

    Cons

    What is your expectation? None at this time

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! I have seen companies taking off benefits as they grow and lose good working people. Hopefully CSA doesn't fall under the same category.

    Pros

    This company really invests in their people and have a true understanding of how happy employees are more productive.

    Cons

    My position is as a subcontractor, therefore the atmosphere is set by the prime contractor. I believe if I was in a position where CSA was the prime the environment would be better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I appreciate the ideas you have for employee satisfaction.

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of good coworkers and leaders. Innovative mentality. Strong corporate culture.

    Cons

    But with any company this size, you will run into some that are difficult to work with or don't care. As the company grows, it is also easier to fall through the cracks, but there are opportunities available to mitigate that if you take them.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what measures are important to you and occasionally audit them to ensure mid-level are keeping up with them.
