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

Pros

You will be recognized and rewarded if you're motivated, driven, and work hard. The people are very friendly and helpful, good culture, lots of flexibility. They provide an environment where what you put in is what you get out so there's the freedom to move at your own pace. Good for those who want to succeed quickly but not for those who want to just coast. Management works with everyone daily, If you have an issue or new idea you can address them.

Cons

People often have a lot of their plates. A lot is expected. This is good and bad, no shortage of work but sometimes spread thin.

Advice to Management

Many types of people can succeed there, they could open up a little, take a chance on people versus erring on the side of caution.

    Pros

    Easy-going, professional. They will definitely work with their contractors to keep them happy, within the constraints imposed by the contract with whatever company you are placed at.

    Cons

    Some things sometimes slip through the cracks. Simple things sometimes get overlooked. There sometimes is a little more attention paid to the bottom line than to the personal needs of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with your contractors and consultants more often. "No news" is not always "good news" and often a remote employee is reluctant to make waves for fear of teh reprecussions, wither to the employee or to one of the companies involved.
