Pros

Excellent Brand
Steady work
Solid work schedule (40-45hr work week - big plus for consultants)
100% Local clients (no travel)
Ability to add value to and gain leadership experience with a growing firm
Free lunch every other Friday!

Cons

The RightPoint talent pool has heavy Open Source background/roots, but most projects have been enterprise, Microsoft .Net - based. It would be great to see more investment in this area.

Advice to Management

It would be nice to see the compensation, bonus, and benefits packages reviewed as part of the ongoing efforts to maintain the steady growth and improvement of the business.

    I have been working at Rightpoint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Senior leadership really takes care of people. If you do the right thing, they have your back. If you make a mistake and own up to it, they have your back, if you start struggling, they work with you to get your mojo back.

    There is a career path for everyone. If you're ambitious and want to change the world, you're supported in your efforts. If cool where you are at and just want to geek out on code, or design, or strategy they don't judge.

    The culture is phenomenal. Companies always say this, but this is the first place I've been where they put their money where their mouth is. One of the things I tell people is that everyone here is passionate about something - it may actually not be their day to day work at Rightpoint, perhaps for them Rightpoint really is just a job, but even those folks are passionate and bring those passions (like running, or community service, or brewing beer, or reading, or video games, etc, etc, etc) to the office.

    Cons

    It is a consulting firm. And along with that comes all the challenges of a consulting firm - staffing woes, cranky or unreasonable clients, local travel (it can be a PITA to get to a suburban client if you live in the city, or a north suburban client if you live in the south suburbs), and sometimes you have to put in that extra to get projects across the finish line - not necessarily issues you find when you're in-house.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, but perhaps increase the communications out of the senior leadership team. Sometimes those of us out in the field lose track of what's going on.

    Pros

    There's a great community at Rightpoint and everyone is happy to help if you ask. They don't reprimand you if you mess up but try and help you fix it and understand what happened. It's definitely a growing company in an important industry.

    Cons

    The company is growing so fast and so much that there aren't always enough resources so everyone takes on a large share.
