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

Pros

- Performance driven salaries and bonus structure. If you work hard and contribute to the cultural and business growth of the company you will be compensated appropriately.

- Smaller IT Consulting Firm that relies on growth and promotions from within the company. They look to advance their own employees before hiring outside the company which is great.

- BC gives great opportunities to have a lot of responsibilities if you show, over time, that you are capable of taking on duties. Lots of room to learn and grow your knowledge base in IT security.

- Family oriented culture where you get to know your Senior-Level Management, the CEO, Principle, COO, CFO very well. They also provide 5-6 company functions per year for team building.

Cons

- Lack of professional training in-house and limited incentives to take IT training or certifications. While you receive $3,000 for "education and training", a lot of the more expensive training courses will not be approved except for special cases. They would prefer to pay the least amount of money and keep you billable as much as possible so week long trainings are not an option. If you are a self-study type of person than this company is for you. Self-study and BC will pay for you to take the exam but don't expect any 3-7 day training courses being approved on your first attempt.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Blue Canopy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good and smart people working there, just not management.

    Cons

    It's your typical good old boys network. Useless, lazy, and sexist former military in cushy do nothing roles.

    Advice to Management

    Hire SOME WOMEN!

    I worked at Blue Canopy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Refreshing High Energy growing company that actually performs. Client are first and employees are actually rewarded and recognized. I learned a lot there.

    Cons

    There are some great people and leaders at the company however their is a disconnect in communications within the company . Some of the partners take advantage, gossip and are negative with their teams. It is a shame that upper management doesn't know they are getting stabbed in the back.

    Advice to Management

    They should be aware of the disconnected communication and the negativity of some of the partners. It is draining to employees.
