Pros

No travel, unique PTO policy, and stability. Centric has not laid off a FTE in it's history. There are opportunities to contribute to the growth of the company.

Cons

There is very little oversight, no training, and the coaching is weak at best. in my 3.5 years with the company, I have worked with one other FTE, and that was only for four months. My entire time with Centric has been as a solitary staff augmentation resource for different clients.

Advice to Management

Be honest and up front with candidates that we will be doing mostly staff aug work. Also, be honest that of the 400 employess you claim, half are independent contractors, not FTEs.

    I have been working at Centric Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Centric hires experienced folks who are resourceful and passionate about the clients we serve and the results we deliver. They truly believe in providing their people with opportunities to grow their career and have a culture that will allow people to feel comfortable with anyone within the organization.

    Cons

    The interview process tends to be lengthy however there is a reason for this. We are very concerned about whether a potential candidate will be a good fit in our culture, so we typically have them meet with several people before making a decision.
