    I worked at EDL Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Low travel for consulting firm, family-friendly environment, smart, talented team, personable CEO

    Cons

    One of many Salesforce SIs - nothing that clearly sets EDL apart, company was impacted greatly by CloudCraze spinoff (significant workforce reduction due to employees becoming a part of the CloudCraze team)

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

    Pros

    EDL Consulting checks off most of the boxes in terms of being a fantastic employer. The culture is phenominal, and employees are truly appreciated. It has managed to maintain the small company feel, even throughout years of growth. The projects were excellent. You will get to work with great companies, who continue to seek out EDL for engagements for a large list of reasons.

    Cons

    Typical small/medium business cons. You will "wear a lot of hats" and often do things that seem outside your job title. If you see this as a negative, it's probably not a good fit. However, going above and beyond the call of duty is never ignored and management does a very good job of recognizing employee contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    You will meet a lot of other companies and develop an understanding of many verticals.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. The management lacked vision and mission. You will be left to interpret what is best for your position and job on your own. This is not a good entry level company. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Do not advertise to newly graduates.
