    I have been working at Fusion Alliance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting projects, leadership opportunities, good compensation, work-life balance, ability to work remotely, management that listens to employees and let's them lead initiatives and execute ideas that they feel passionate about

    Cons

    Benefits package isn't as great as you would get at a large corporation but for me the great work-life balance makes up for it

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

    Pros

    - bench time was interesting. Good mixture of low stress and engagement
    - good Cincinnati office - cramped but good location
    - good placement learned a lot and had challenging work
    - somewhat of fake family feel especially if you work in Indy /HQ region
    - a few good devs but their personalities suck.

    Cons

    - Swapped me out during project to another client because they could which sucked for the other consultants on project and customer
    - Owner does not really care about you when you leave. Just a number really there.
    - No training or ability to work on other technology stacks. If you are ETL, you will be stuck with just data processing. Same for .NET - good luck trying to do Android development.
    - Very low pay. I made $10K more a year as FTE immediately after leaving.
    Consultants need to make more more.
    - The hiring bar is way too low. Will hire less technical people and when they don't work out expect other more technical people to bail them out.
    - Company has some large downtown enterprise clients. But does not have any local developer buzz or marketing. They aren't regarded as well as SDS or Illumination Works or Cardinal or Sogeti locally..

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more developer-driven and stop being jack-of-all trades and more focused. Pay better and owner needs to have better incentives to get folks to stay.

    I have been working at Fusion Alliance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very talented and dedicated consultants. Good benefits, work flexibility and work life balance. Financially stable and very strong customer base ( Fortune 500).

    Cons

    Leadership team talks a lot about empowering and engaging employees, however these are more aspirational and actions tell a different story. If you sit in digital or data, you’re on the good side. If you’re part of a practice in lesser demand, you’re not as valued.
    Employees are encouraged to bring ideas forward, however if you’re not in the inner circle, your ideas are not considered.

    Advice to Management

    Open the circle of trust. Treat everyone equally, not just the management’s friends.

    Pros

    Cool Clients, interesting projects. Star employees that are knowledgeable. Location was great for a while, until placed on other side of Indy.

    Cons

    No respect for employees. Doesn’t listen when concerns are raised. Recruiter there doesn’t respond unless theres a position to be filled.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees.

    Pros

    The people are awesome, and the company has a great culture of promoting work-life balance.

    Cons

    Fusion is a smaller company that is transitioning into a larger organization. Systems don't talk to each other, making it hard to communicate across the different locations.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to integrate all three offices. Make sure people have the bandwidth to take on additional responsibility before handing it to them.

    Pros

    High degree of loyalty to both clients and employees. Consultants are not cut loose the minute they stop billing at a client. Lots of freedom of expression. Everybody at every level of management is very open and approachable, all the way to the top. Seen several programmers (including myself) completely reinvent their skill sets at no small cost with management's strong support. Mistakes, once understood and corrected, are generously forgiven. Emphasis on integrity and doing the right thing for the client even when the right thing isn't the most profitable thing.

    Cons

    Company has a bit of identity crisis balancing internally managed projects with staffing work. Desire to do right by clients sometimes makes it hard to push back against unreasonable client demands. Identifying problems and opportunities often depends on consultants taking initiative to raise issues up to management.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to consultants more regularly and proactively. Get active in the wider development community. Build a reputation in the community for competence and innovation to support your authority when talking to clients.

    Spend a little more time understanding all business lines.
