I worked at Neudesic full-time

Pros

Many colleagues are nice, talented people. If you are in the inner circle, life can be grand. The executive team's loyalty coupled with being their friend can provide ample opportunities for title progression. Some of the internal IT tools and systems are better than at much larger firms and they were built in-house.

Cons

Engagements are not set up for success in the sales cycle. Too often, projects are under-bid or mis-estimated because the pre-sales team didn't thoroughly dissect the problem. The projects are then sold without sufficient reviews in place by people that can ask the right questions. To make a bad situation worse, those projects are then sometimes improperly staffed.

Quite a few unqualified people running markets around the country without the proper skills or experience to build consulting businesses. Without that leadership in place, employees and clients suffer, unless they happen to get lucky and get the right person or people for a project.

There seems to be a lot of money going into initiatives that don't appear to be bearing sufficient fruit to keep the motor running long term. Fortunately, the consulting business is still generating ample revenue to support other investments.

There's a tendency to want to "sell a body" to a customer, rather than a solution or project team. That creates a culture of cowboy consulting and individual contributor mentality in the consulting ranks.

Advice to Management

Invest heavily in strengthening the consulting business. Perhaps offer some training to your market leaders to learn how to run a proper consulting business, because that is your bread and butter. Once your core competency is on solid ground, leverage the proceeds of that investment for expanding into the next great product or service line.

Scrum training for everyone is not going to suffice - you need to hire and grow real business leaders and people managers while building scale into your model. Methodology alone will not save the day, though it is nice that the training was provided.

    I worked at Neudesic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There's nothing good about this company except the office location and looks.

    Cons

    Few people are politicians talking only about others.
    Few have head weight.
    If they will plan to hire 100 people then 200 will be hired and 100 will be FIRED.
    They get project by commiting project to be finished in few months.so basically development will suffer to finish work.

    Advice to Management

    Please have a look at changing cheap environment.
    People should learn that having a higher package or designation doesn't mean they can rule the world.
