    interesting acquisitions over past few years

    Low pay, multiple reorgs, let go of top leaders who came from acquisitions. Lack of company direction. No vision or budget for innovation. Poor benefit plan with massive employee out of pocket cost. Push to offshore everything and everyone.

    Pros

    Location is the only advantage that I could think off.

    Cons

    Groupisum, Accredited more on your proximity with the manager than your performance. Lack of coordination between the offshore and onshore team.

    I worked at Emtec full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Emtec was a former strong contender in this space when they were Emerging Solutions. They had a good management direction. Pay was good.

    Cons

    Once Emtec took over Emerging Solutions, they had a lack of direction in the Hyperion space, specifically around the HFM/FDM product. Management used to have drive for this. They now aren't focused in this area and clients can tell.

    Advice to Management

    Make investments in this arena and bring quality talent to the table. Have focus for this if not too late.
