Pros

Interesting and never ending stream of work
Challenging environment
Smart people to work with
Global company
Somewhat flat, so things move quickly

Cons

Not a lot of growth potential
Stack ranked annual reviews, you have to exceed your goals more than others but the process is subjective and relationships can play a more important role than the results you achieved.

Advice to Management

Leadership is great and I continue to be impressed with how they have navigated the economic downturn this last year while still maintaining some growth. Keep up the great work

    Confusing business plan right now. They had trouble finding assignments in my specialty, business intelligence and the review process was somewhat arbitrary.

    Need to step up the direct sales channel.

    Pros

    - Good place to work if you are a .Net coder
    - $2,000/year to spend on gadgets
    - Pretty good health benefits

    Cons

    - Laser focus on selling to CIOs makes it a poor place to work for business solution consultants (ERP, CRM, BI)
    - New career model has virtually stopped all career advancement
    - Shift from regional to service line organization has drastically reduced leadership roles and opportunities
    - Old boys club mentality among leadership (most worked together at Accenture or Microsoft Consulting Services)
    - 80% of business is hand-me-down work from Accenture
    - Very poor work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a strategy to sell outside of the CIO office. Using people that can sell to a CIO to try to sell to a CFO or COO doesn't work.
