    I worked at Fircroft full-time

    Pros

    Generous PTO for internal staff and free employee only insurance coverage. Used to be a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Poor management that does not keep its promises and does not communicate. Becoming a boy's club with recent changes in management. New management lacks leadership skills and and tends to promote and put in power employees lacking in experience, because they are friends, without getting to know or appreciate the talents of employees that are more qualified. Too busy trying to be funny instead of responding to important matters, which makes already unhappy employees have another point not to trust management. People are desperate to hang on to their jobs and it's creating a very negative, backstabbing, political environment. No HR presence to control any of this.

    Advice to Management

    Do everything you can to not lose any more talented employees. Take off your blinders and rethink your choice of management. The trickle down effect is detrimental to the loyalty of your remaining good employees. Hire a true HR rep for your U.S. office that is qualified and compassionate to your employees.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Fircroft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fircroft has medical and 401K benefits that you don't find with some other consulting companies. Medical was very affordable. The rates Fircroft negotiated for me were very nice.

    Cons

    It's a contract company and the jobs are temporary (although my contract was for a year).

    Advice to Management

    When a contract is coming to an end, please work better with the individuals trying to find them new positions.

    They will do what you ask when you need something.

    Give some perks other than a few dollars on holiday.

    I have been working at Fircroft full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company has everything you could want. You can be open and candid with people and all ideas are accepted with an appreciation for the thought that they've inspired. This open atmosphere creates a trusting and beneficial culture inspiring true growth.

    Cons

    With a sharp contrast to previous jobs I've had, there are few cons with Fircroft. The cons that exist can be addressed with open-mindedness and candid thoughts and will not be cons for long.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your enthusiasm and hard work.
    Leave a stamp on everyone you speak with.
    Emphasize the mission and values of the company more, because there is a lot to be inspired by sharing this information.
