    I worked at Exeter Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Bright, interesting, dedicated colleagues. Challenging projects that include a range of different technologies and sectors. Typical flat structures and access to senior folks.

    Cons

    Informal career path and lack of reviews require individuals for plot their own course sometimes without significant feedback. All decisions from engagement staffing to strategic focus are funneled through one individual. - The organization struggles with internal communication to remote staff. - The organization struggles to keep remote staff engaged and active with internal initiatives. - Maintaining the organizational culture is a challenge due to the low management to junior resource ratio at headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    More communication. Allow staff to become proactive with internal efforts during "on the bench" periods. - Create a mentorship program. - Increase senior resource contact to junior resources when at headquarters.
