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

    Pros

    They work hard and play hard and that is fun, but when you get to the point where you cannot trust your peers or your boss; it is no longer fun.

    Cons

    They wanted me to falsify my resume that was submitted to clients and then back it up in an interview. They wanted me to say I had a year + experience with a certain type of software, when, in fact, I only had one week. Then in the interview with a potential client, they could tell I did not have the experience as stated in the resume. Very embarrassing.
    Managers do not see their employees as employees, they see them as a tool for them to make money. They do not cultivate their employees. They do not provide feedback until it is too far gone.

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees grow. Provide feedback on a regular basis. If you have a problem with an employee, don't wait six months to bring it to their attention.

    I have been working at Crown Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule, many opportunities to grow, great culture and people. Diversity in work is also a plus, being able to work on many projects allows for so much experience and deeper hands on learning.

    Cons

    With any consultancy job there are times where schedules can get overloaded and stressful, but that has been one of the only difficult things to juggle.

    I have been working at Crown Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to work from home or office (half the company is distributed), willing to compensate top performers, sensible bonus structure, high-profile clients and interesting projects.

    Cons

    Crown is a sales-driven company, so more is invested in the sales and marketing side of the company than development. High utilization rates are valued more than life/work balance. Many projects are managed poorly and poor planning is laid on the backs of developers. Crown's quick growth has led to lots of great projects, but lots of chaos as well.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on executing projects well by hiring experienced PM talent. Hire passionate developers and give them the freedom (and time) to invest in mastering their craft.

    I have been working at Crown Partners full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    eBusiness consulting firm - a great tech company that is on the cutting edge and ready to explode with more growth. This, of course, means more opportunities at every level. Casual, yet professional atmosphere working with a great bunch of people all over the US and abroad. Love the break room, snacks, work from home if you want, Crown culture, Crown camp, etc.

    Cons

    should consolidate 2 main office buildings into 1; need a faster hiring process;

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

    Pros

    The culture and nuturing of a person's career is on of the best parts of Crown. They will challenge you and push you out of your comfort zone to make you better. They see things in you that you might not even see in yourself.

    Cons

    They move fast. So you either have to keep up or suffer the consequences.

    Advice to Management

    You do a great job of creating a great place to work. The only thing of note that could be improved is that it would be good to bridge the gap from up in the tower to down in the trenches.

    Autonomy
    Fast-paced, adaptable environment
    Ability to work as a valued consultant to companies across a variety of industries.

    Cons

    The fast-pace, driven culture of Crown Partners is not for everyone. This is not a place for individuals that require a predictable day-to-day workflow.
