    I have been working at Systems Evolution full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    After having my first baby a few years ago, I decided it was time to leave my job at a large consulting firm due to the travel requirements. I didn't want to leave the challenge and variety of consulting, however. After looking at several different internal consulting positions at local companies, a friend referred me to SEI. I had no idea that a local consulting model existed and was excited to learn that I could continue...

    Cons

    As an employee owner, you are expected to contribute to the growth of the company outside of your billable client hours. In other words, there will be weeks that you're working more than 9-5. If you've ever worked at another consulting firm, this isn't a surprise. However, it feels completely different at SEI. The things you contribute to have real value to the business because the company's size and limited management...

    Pros

    I left SEI several months ago for an opportunity that I simply couldn’t turn down. This is an amazing firm, with amazing people. One of the best career experiences I have had. *Team cohesion and collaboration- Colleagues are always willing to help each other out. No back stabbing. Everyone is working together to make the firm better, and to ensure the client experience is first class. Employees are treated with respect,...

    Cons

    No real cons for SEI. I had a very positive experience! Coming out of industry to consulting was difficult for me a time first, but there were lots of coworkers always willing to coach and mentor. Perhaps a formal training program/ curriculum for folks that are new to consulting could help with initial transition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing! Maintain a rigorous hiring process, and always maintain the amazing company culture that you have created! Consider a 401K match as you continue to grow

    I have been working at Systems Evolution full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I found that being a part of SEI is exactly as described during the interview process. It is a very flat organization with very low overhead. Unlike other firms where I have worked there is no class distinctions between those that are owners (partners) and those that aren't. The simple fact is any senior or principal can acquire shares in the LLC and many have. A key component of the model is cooperation rather than competition....

    Cons

    Although SEI is substantially larger than it was when I started, it is still a growing organization that is still establishing itself in each of its markets. The folks that are the most comfortable at SEI are those that are confident in their consulting skills, prefer cooperation over competition, and want to be able to help shape the organization.

    Advice to Management

    At SEI there is no need to provide blind feedback to management. If I have an idea that I think will help, then I tell them directly.
