Pros

People are friendly. Flexibility to work from home as well as with hours. People on team work together for solutions. Pay falls within normal-good range.

Cons

Expectation is to work until it is done, so the ability to work from home / flexibility is a double edge sword as there is no end of day as one may always be available. A normal week is 50-60 hours. If there is a deadline or issues, then plan to work nights and weekends. Those who leave at 5pm and are offline until 9am are viewed as unusual and are simultaneously admired/resented but co-workers pulling 60 hr /weeks. Promises are made to client and then there is a scramble to meet deadlines. This happens constantly with those making the promises working their 40 hrs and going home. New people are being hired constantly. Not sure where the others have gone as there is a constant cubical shuffle so either they are on another floor or are no longer working at the company. I suspect they have left company, but since they are not on my team...don't really know. Honestly, I see some of the positive postings and I think that are written by HR so they can counter the real postings.

Advice to Management

The health benefits are costly. And with the long hours, employees don't have the time to do the 6 things needed to be done each quarter to get the cost break.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    --Very good overall benefits package compared to other companies
    --Work from home flexibility and autonomy around work schedules

    Cons

    --Single biggest problem: Not a client centric culture rather a bunch individuals, not teams, in which everyone says 'I can't help you with that, it's not my responsibility'
    --Invisible leadership presence in New York office
    --No opportunity for face time with senior management equals no chance of promotion
    --If you don't know how to play the political game there is no chance of promotion
    --Technical Project managers who aren't project managers, nor are technical.
    --Very junior staff in line manager roles who are in way over their heads.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize talent when it's in front of you, not after the're gone.
    Recruit some client and employee centric leadership that can build agile teams that get things done for clients instead of continually failing the client.

    Pros

    Strong company
    Growth/career opportunities
    Good benefits
    Excellent people to work with/team environment

    Cons

    If you're not invigorated by challenges every day, and a high speed environment then it might not be the place for you; I love it and wouldn't have it any other way.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the communication to associates. It's greatly appreciated and continues to bring us closer together even in the rapid growth mode that we're in.
