    Pros

    Flexible, Thoughtful, Opportunity, Entrepreneurs, -they do provide a good deal of opportunity for people to be successful in what they do

    Cons

    Management cannot get anything done because of constant flux in company and poor decisions. They have no idea how to manage cash and the CEO keeps changing his mind

    Advice to Management

    Get real, start lowering things that are a waste of money and get rid of all these silly offices that done make money. Squandering the opportunity of this company.

    Pros

    Great experience from a reputable and globally recognized company.

    Cons

    Amount of work for the level of pay is not worth it. I received my first assignment before I even knew where the restroom was. There is so much work sometimes that it’s difficult to produce your best work, and so little direction or clarification that you aren’t sure what the client wants because you aren’t on the client calls all the time so you end up redoing work to fit the scope that was never given or mentioned to you. Also, you are tracked by number of hours that you spend on a project except for they are finite, and if your project is extended because the client is happy and wants to move forward into a new phase, you will be stuck doing the work without any additional hours which drops your metrics. Leadership knows this but expects your to make it work. When you have 5+ projects that you have been working on for months and you haven’t gotten any additional hours, the metrics don’t work in your favor. Nothing you can do about it except for learn what you can and get out.

    Advice to Management

    No point, unless you are an investor, they won’t care.
