    Pros

    Good benefits; lots of perks and lots of company events.

    Cons

    Teams are too fluid and formed dynamically as projects arive. Therefore teams only form-and-storm and rarely norm-and-perform. The culture is only as good as the events and sideshows allow since the project work is rarely rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Strategic direction is narrowly focused on skill-sets (e.g. Microsoft) which are too broadly available in the market to get command higher bill rates (and thus salaries/benefits). Its simple supply and demand. Diversify into specializations and/or domains that command higher value in the market.

    Pros

    Great "bench" policy unlike other contract firms. Challenging work. Deployment to great local companies.

    Cons

    Challenging work; Cardinal does not silo people based upon experience. People are all awesome and highly capable IT professionals, but they are either treated largely as Swiss Army Knifes or the types of work available are not consistent. This leads to a bit of a stressful situation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep nurturing the awesome culture and environment through (and beyond) the acquisition. Also, figure out how resources can be positioned more and more as Consultants. Focusing individual work load may facilitate growing these kind of resources and reduce the stress created by steep tech on-boarding.
