Current Employee - Project Manager in Milwaukee, WI
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great healthcare benefits
Pay for certifications
Salary ok for Milwaukee area
Great coworkers
Small pool of good clients

Cons

Terrible vacation time
If you are on the bench for more than 2 months watch out you will be cut if you have not been with company for a long time
If you are billable than they love you!
Sales team not aggresive obtaining new clients- For example if your assignment ends with a client they want to resubmit you in another area of the client first before they consider you for another opportunity with a client.
They state they are practice focused meaning they have projects that they work on outside of the client location. They are trying to go the Accenture model. Very hard for them to adapt to this.
RFP process hands down sloppy constant revisions and they take in consideration of the recruitement team over the technical expertise.

Advice to Management

To evolve the company to be like Accenture you need to be ahead of the curve. Slow to adapt to technologies.

    Pros

    Great potential with products and services.

    Cons

    Too set in monolithic ways, lack of agility and modern IT business practices. Very much a "old girls" network. Promises continually made, promised continually broken regarding opportunities for compensation and career advancement. Old timers carry all the clout and don't seem to be open to innovation - "not invented here" syndrome. Organization is totally strangled by Finance and HR, not a Sales driven environment.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Facilitate the growth with better compensation to drive the needed behavior - more sales. Too much process and lack of innovation to for business process improvement.

    Pros

    Great building, nice people to work, I have no complaints about management, free parking in Detroit downtown, Hard Rock Caffe and few other stores on the same building, along with nice Fitness Center (but paid), New Horizons (Day Care) facility inside the building as well, closed to everything in downtown ...

    Cons

    No tuition reinbursement, no 401k match, 2 weeks of vacation during first 5 years, not well structured training process (lag on training), telecomute available but very restricted... old fashion view

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive to the employees, especially in areas related to professional development and project intiatives, needs to improve morale.
