    I worked at Productive Edge full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The ability to (occasionally) work from home.

    Cons

    Leadership within the company is inexperienced, and at times unethical. The company is constantly understaffed, and relies heavily on outsourced employees to handle much of the heavy technical lifting. The benefits are abysmal to say the least. Compensation is sub-par, awful health insurance options, and no 401K match is offered.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more experienced, ethical, and hardworking leaders.

    I have been working at Productive Edge full-time

    Pros

    Great atmosphere with no drama... people are genuinely here to grow in their profession and become stronger players in the tech world. Dynamic social and PE Cares initiatives, at least once a week there is a way to get out of the normal work setting and have some fun or to help out a cause with a group of coworkers. Management is also sincere about taking employee feedback seriously and making improvements where needed....

    Cons

    Not many cons, management does a good job listening to employee feedback and making adjustments when improvements are needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting the Social Team outings and PE Cares activities!

    I have been working at Productive Edge full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great culture and work environment. Open loft-style office surrounded by smart minds that allows for frequent knowledge and idea sharing. PE expects consultants to quickly take ownership of their projects upon joining, allowing for rapid integration into the company and work. Many opportunities to socialize with team members through happy hours, weekly social activities and volunteer events.

    Cons

    With PE's rapid growth, hoping to seeing more enthusiasm from leadership in investing in existing employees and promoting from within along with the push for recruiting outside talent.
