    Pros

    Mid-sized consulting firm. Lots of visibility and interaction with managers and executive team. Overall, a great place to work.

    Cons

    No 401k match is the only major con in my eyes.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to take advantage of. We have a vast amount of knowledge in the company and its a great place to learn and grow.

    Not the best with internal communication. Still lacking some culture.

    Pros

    Great culture, extensive growth, great people to work with. Excelacom is growing their footprint in the Denver market and it is a great time to join as you will likely have the chance to provide your input and make a difference within the firm.

    Cons

    Things change daily which is expected in a rapidly growing environment and even more so in a consulting organization. If you are not good with change then you may struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Continue growing while communicating extensively and providing a road map to current employees so they don't feel left behind.

    Pros

    Being a part of an established company that has new local senior leadership that has a strategy for success and growth. At times can feel like a start-up which allows you to be part of the growth. Transformation to a premiere consulting organization. Ability to work with large, telecom and media focused clients who are doing great work for the future.

    Cons

    If you have worked for a large corporate company in the past, you will need to adjust to not having everything defined for you. But the opportunity is there to help shape the future.

    Advice to Management

    Continuing pushing forward with the new local strategy. Continue recruiting top talent.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - The people were great, and admittedly the only reason I stayed as long as I did.
    - The pay was good for undergrad right out of college.
    - Health, vision, and dental benefits

    Cons

    - Many employees are underpaid considering the industry/other available opportunities
    - There is practically no communication from upper management (regarding people leaving company, new hires, performance reviews, general company updates, etc.)
    - New hire training is lacking
    - Advancement training for established employees is the individuals responsibility
    - SORELY struggling to secure client opportunities
    - Bonus/raises seem to be based on company performance, not individuals
    - "Trial by fire" learning/project approach
    - No 401k match

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with your employees; support training of current employees to make them more marketable; go back to focusing on client relationships; look into 401k match;
