I have been working at Bluewolf full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great culture.
A strong and talented technical team.

Cons

1) There is a lack of Management. Lot of good resources and talented people within the company. But the internal process is broken in places.
2) No clear career path for experienced professionals.
3) Sales oriented company. No appreciation for developer efforts or behind the screen workers.
4) Below market pay.
5) Team keeps changing drastically.Too many farewell notes and welcome notes sent out each week.
6) Bleeding talent. We loose a lot of smart people because of lackluster management.

Advice to Management

Stop looking at numbers to judge company's performance.
Look at employee satisfaction as a criteria for judging company performance.

    Pros

    Very supportive of professional growth. You are in a position to build a personal brand and also help grow the business.

    Cons

    Lack of structure can be overwhelming at times. Lots of autonomy could be good if you are very independent, but bad if you need a bit more direction. Culture varies greatly from office to office.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more proactive with employees around training, coaching, etc.

    Pros

    Hires interesting, creative, and motivated people. Really strong team dynamics and great peer to peer collaboration.

    Cons

    Billing is king. Management seems too bogged down in nominal tasks, selling, continued client work, and putting out fires to really devote much time to building a strong and healthy team.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your managers to be creative, take risks, and develop strong teams. Further encourage collaboration at every level in the company. If the bottom line is always bill, bill, bill, you're problem solving and solutions become very short sighted. Bluewolf is looking to move into the major leagues, and needs to realize there are other valuable roles beyond the players in the field.
