Pros

Infusion is a good place to learn Microsoft technologies. If you are lucky enough to get on a good project and a team lead who what he/she is talking about, you can learn some new technologies quicly. But I know some team lead\manager, who called himself SharePoint Expert, but he really does not know much. If that is the case, you have to learn hard with no provided training, and work hard, and let the "expert" take the credit. That is why a lot of people left. Infusion will tell you how many new employees they hired, and won't tell you how many people who left the company. I know the office in US, everyone left.

Cons

Worst benefit.
Almost no bench time, not the in the good way. No bench time because they throw you to some proejct that doesn't match your interest, skill set or client's requirement. All they care is billable hours. Sometime consultants use bench time to learn new technologies. You won't have the luxury here.

If you are on bench, the management will force you use your own vacation days!!! What a shame!!

No benefits, no 401k match. I was told that HR was working on 401k since I am hired about 4 1/2 years ago.

Doesn't look good on your resume. I started looking for new jobs for almost a year. Infusion doesn't look good on your resume.

Travel policy is bad. No direct flights. You waste a lot of time on the road. For the management, you time is nothing.

Advice to Management

Better pay, better benefit
Don't feed us using peanuts, while you spent like crazy.
Don't force employee to use vacation days when you cannot find any work. You can require employee to do self training at that time. It will good for the company in the long run.
Better laptops.

    Pros

    Lot of cutting edge technology projects. People can work on side projects in their free time.

    Cons

    Project management is pretty bad. Senior management reaps all the rewards while consultants do all the work. Not everybody gets to work on cutting edge technology projects. Some people are stuck on a staff augmentation project for years. Human resources is incompetent and does not make an effort to know their employees issues. Senior management, to put it harshly, is hypocritical. Processes are half baked and not implemented most of the time. Compensation is often based on closeness with upper management and not performance.

    Advice to Management

    If you want long term growth of employes build a professional atmosphere and take care of your employees and stop wasting money on travel and useless socializing.

    Pros

    Its a very young culture and designed to be a mild frat house culture. They are very focused on using the "coolest" technologies and training people to be useful.

    Cons

    Your career is only built on your ability to bill, with no soft skills training available.
    The company has a large gulf between the senior management and consultants, with the consultants generating the vast bulk of the income and the senior management taking the bulk of the profits. A publicly traded company would certainly need to be run in a leaner fashion.
    Policies and rules are not publicly maintained, nor are they kept up to date. Also, many special allowances are made beyond the policies in private, when getting pally with management.

    Advice to Management

    Become more accountable. Have formal reviews of management and policies with the grass roots of the firm.
