    I have been working at Compusearch full-time

    Pros

    I love working at Compusearch! Everyone is very easy going and extremely easy to talk to. Plenty of opportunities to get involved in different types of work and projects. Management has an open door policy and it is extremely easy to get in contact with whoever you need to. There is no feeling of titles at the company so everyone works collaboratively to get the job done and everyone listens to each other, be you a new hire or a senior employee. Great overall company culture!

    Cons

    There are consultants spread all over to support client sites, so it is difficult to get to know all of your co-workers because you and them can be coming and going sporadically. Management does do a good job of throwing department/company events to bring everyone to the same location, which gives everyone a great opportunity to catch up!

    Advice to Management

    No real advice from me. I think their management strategy is successful and bodes well for the future of Compusearch. The open door policy is great and not something you get at a lot of companies.

    Pros

    Extremely down to earth culture. Everyone works really hard but no one climbs on each other's backs to succeed. The management is friendly and reasonable. Employees help each other out at work and there is a strong feeling of connection between employees. It is not hierarchical or title oriented. Great benefits. I love working here.

    Cons

    Very fast paced environment so management get's very busy. Send a scheduler appointment if you need to speak to your manager and he/she is not at the same location as you!

    Advice to Management

    Maybe have more one-on-one's with your staff.

    Pros

    Compusearch really is a family oriented company. They care about their employees lives outside of work. Unlimited sick days, 401k matching, education reimbursement are all things they offer.

    Cons

    They seem to pay slightly below the bigger companies which is understandable due to their size.

    Advice to Management

    Try to help out the consultants on site to help them still feel like they work at Compusearch. You feel a little forgotten about.

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

    Pros

    Compusearch is very diverse and holds events celebrating many cultures. There is a fun atmosphere while located in the Dulles office. They do also hold events to bring back all the contracted consultants to meet in one location for drinks.

    Cons

    If you are a consultant, you will be placed in one of the clients locations most likely. It really is just luck of the draw on where you are put. Once hired, you do not know where you will be located until placement. This could range from all over DC and into Virginia, and Maryland.

    Some consultants "drop like flies" and Compusearch does not always fill those positions quick enough. Thus, you can be left understaffed at your client's location until further notice.

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

    Pros

    Quite Stable Job. Well Process oriented. Fairly new technology. Very friendly people, some are quite helpful. Opportunity to learn. Not very aggressive schedules.

    Cons

    Management's lack of vision is hurting company. In-Competent people are getting support from the management. Hard work goes unnoticed. Growth depends on the luck.

    Advice to Management

    Try to know the employee more and know about their expertise. Talented employees are left without any growth and recognition while kiss-as$ employee are promoted and recognized.

    Try to work with offsite staff a bit more so they are not just put on a project and forgotten about.
