      I have been working at Ignify full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Opportunities to people who are willing to grab them. Decent enterprise customers, very good exposure. One of the best AX implementations team. Better salaries than other partner.

      Cons

      Certain mid level managers have a high degree of favoritism. This makes and made a few seniors feel they are neglected, especially with promotions. Uncertainty at times causes anxiety amongst employees.

      Advice to Management

      None.

      I have been working at Ignify full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Been working here for more than 5 years and the company has changed for the better. While there is a still a very strong entrepreneurial culture processes have gotten better, things are more streamlined and generally there is a bigger company attitude. Someone has worked hard to make that happen. Work/ Life balance has also improved. Working weekends though not at zero don't happen very often and frankly if you want...

      Cons

      Some things can still be adhoc. Travel can sometimes be an issue depending on your job - especially for consultants. However, travel is far lesser than other IT consulting firms from my experience.

      Advice to Management

      Can't really think of much to add. I think Ignify University is a good initiative but it should be made more regular and we should work on bringing in external coaches and trainers in addition to the peer to peer training.

        Pros

        Lots of learning Always something new happening Good pipeline of Microsoft Dynamics projects People stay busy Try to stay local. Travel is MUCH lower than other consulting firms Good core values Expansion in international markets continues to fuel growth

        Cons

        Sometimes too busy. Need to manage work/life. This has really improved in the recent months though. The management is working hard at it Very Entrepreneurial - which is generally good but sometimes processes are not fully baked.

        Advice to Management

        Spend time on better documentation and processes. The excellence initiatives are good. Continue to invest in the business.
