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

    Pros

    Great social place to work and the culture is awesome. When it comes to your employment, there is room to move and accept new challenges. The company are willing to enhance your abilities and professional experience without keeping you stationary in one position.

    Cons

    Pay will be less then general contractor but less stress and more flexibility. Personally don't mind the off-set.

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

    Pros

    - Senior level management not being available in person or technology makes your work schedule flexible
    - a good stepping stone to move to another company

    Cons

    - Low pay : far below market
    - Sr. Management is incredibly unavailable. It takes numerous pings to get a response to a simple PTO request
    - They nickel and dime you for EVERYTHING. You have to jump thru hoops to get an expense report approved, transportation costs covered, potluck lunches (for the amount of $ that is being brought in on our specific account, cater is a damn meal once in a while)
    - PTO policy is laughable
    - Direction of the account is nonexistent
    - “Process Improvement” is ongoing and beaten into us but there’s no real tangible results
    - Sr. Management shows their face maybe 1-2 times per week
    - Employee input is impossible as there is no one around to voice your opinion to
    - team events are not paid for (my manager paid out of his own pocket for a team outing to the tune of $250) this goes a LONG way for morale
    - Onboarding was a nightmare. Had to fill out HR forms in two different places.
    - There is no sense of culture or value within our team or account

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so cheap. You acquired us (large online retail account in Seattle), we make you a lot of money. Give us a morale budget. Cater us a lunch, give us a transportation stipend (direct deposit so we don’t have to deal with your incompetent accounting staff)
    - You have a lot of incredibly talented staff on this account and a majority of us are very unhappy and looking elsewhere.

    Pros

    Professional. Good clients. Office does a good job of creating a community among employees despite us all being on separate jobsites.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities. Big disparity between top employees and mediocre ones. Project Management jobs are not growing as much as Cost Management jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce expansion goals and focus on higher quality services and employees.

    Lots of freedom, managers are not breathing down your neck

    Cons

    Bonuses have not been great so far (still haven't been with the company for very long though), the policy is to cap at a fairly low $$ figure

    Pros

    Hard work is rewarded and you can work on your own schedule for the most part. There are some meetings and such that require you to be present for and deadlines, however, no one is telling you to be in by 8:00am and you can't leave before 5:00pm. Bottom line, do your work before the deadline and no one will care when or where you got it done.

    Cons

    There could be better communication within the offices on promotion opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better within the offices, particularily with newer/less experienced personnel.
