    "Coworkers are good, management is "sales-oriented", so the employee is not their main focus."

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Perficient (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many locations mean varied clients, projects, and platforms - always interesting work if you can adapt to new processes, vocabulary, industries, people, methodologies, and tools.
    Coworkers work together as a team. Peers respect you if you pull your weight.

    Cons

    Many projects require significant travel, and all travel time I did was not compensated - there goes hours of precious life.
    Total compensation was 20% less than the project I switched to.

    Advice to Management

    Return focus on the employee.
    In previous lean times, you let great people go if there was no work - I get that. But since then the economy has improved; yet it seems you feel you still have the upper hand. Your sales-oriented (make the sale, figure out the rest) approach will drive good workers away voluntarily unless you care for them, their dreams, their needs.
    Foster "humility" in leadership (applies to both team leads and management) - it always helps to work for folks who are humble and approachable.

    I worked at Perficient full-time

    Pros

    Good pay
    Depending on client, flexible working arrangements (wfh vs travel)
    Decent vacation. 4 weeks but that includes everything from sick to standard holidays.

    Cons

    Bonus starts at 2/3. 1/3 is retained to try keep you on board.
    If you leave before the bonus payout date but after the bonus period, you still get zilch.
    Never met my manager in person
    Terrible communication from management regarding client contract extension/expiry. Makes you feel like all they care about is the money, not their employees.
    No budget for training on the side - especially since if you are training you aren't bringing in the bucks

    Overall, it is a consulting company that looks to make a lot of money. Understandably, they want you to work as much as possible, and are only interested in helping you if it helps them more.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with the employees about the client contracts, especially when it comes close to a contract ending. Don't leave them wondering what the heck is in their future.
