I worked at Forum One full-time

Pros

The basic "how you treat people" is very good. Work/life expectations are reasonable, though worsening.

Cons

Quite frankly, the management doesn't value project management, nor can they come to a decision and execute on it.

Advice to Management

When you can't follow your own mandates, you shouldn't be surprised when no one takes them seriously.

    I have been working at Forum One full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - This is a company that cares about its clients and its employees.
    - There is a rich history of "service" among Forum One's staff - and it translates to the projects we're so proud of.
    - Work-life balance is outstanding.
    - Opportunities for growth within the organization are real.
    - Many staff telecommute - but the office locations (Alexandria, DC, Seattle) are the best.
    - I couldn't ask to work with a better group of people!

    Cons

    Like any company experiencing growth... there are growing pains. But, the company is growing because our clients love us - and people want to work here!

    Advice to Management

    Heads up and full steam ahead!

    I worked at Forum One as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get you started on a contract quickly

    Cons

    If you are being mistreated on a contract, they won't care. They'll let you be mistreated by a client til you leave and then replace you as quickly as possible so they don't lose money.

    Advice to Management

    Care a little more about your dedicated employees. Money is important, but if you burn out all the hard workers, you'll fail as a company.
