Pros

Great clients and latest technologies

prioritizing sales over best client solutions will not win any awards with customers or their trust.

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

    Pros

    AHEAD is by far the best company I've had the privilege to work for. The company culture and team dynamic is super supportive, and the work is challenging but not overburdening. From my very first week here I felt encouraged to share new ideas and then saw them immediately acted upon, something every company I've worked for has talked about but never really fulfilled, even over a period of years.

    The benefits are outstanding (uncommonly affordable BCBS health insurance, "unlimited" PTO [you're trusted to manage this responsibly], commuter perks, matched retirement, etc.), including the amazing Chicago headquarters.

    AHEAD has made a name for itself in a fairly crowded industry (IT services and consulting) with some pretty powerful competition, but, from my experience, they've been successful at this because they prioritize seeking the best people and going out of their way to make employees feel supported and valued in a truly substantive way.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work is tedious, sometimes the workload fluctuates between heavy and light. These are things that are more or less par for the course with office work, and it's no different at AHEAD.

    Advice to Management

    Since I've been here, the company is pursing growth pretty aggressively. I imagine that at a certain point it will be difficult to maintain the same kind of culture there has been in the past, but ensuring the company does so will be critical to maintaining the advantage that AHEAD has in the marketplace.

    Pros

    Relaxed corporate culture with a lot of young employees working very hard to get the work done. Welcoming environment that fosters collaboration and team work. Sweet new office digs are a plus!

    Cons

    No drip coffee, just espresso...
