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

    Pros

    Peers/Colleagues
    Salary (please note: there is no stock option or profit sharing--unfortunately, the owner enjoys this benefit all for himself)

    Cons

    1. Hostile work environment: clients will fire you without reason and without notice. When this happens, even in the absence of performance issues Infinitive leadership will repeatedly ask you what you did to ruin the client opportunity...when one day prior they were telling you that "You Rock!!" and you're "GREAT."

    2. Ambiguous and contradictory executive decision-making: after a perfect annual review (significantly above the average pay increase of 3%) and receiving 5 monthly awards & 1 annual award for exhibiting core values of "entrepreneurship" or "being great," they fired me without reason.

    3. Tenuous client relationships: While most jobs require interviews prior to an offer, I went through 3 rounds of interviews at every client I supported for infinitive-you must sell yourself in order to be chargeable. At one client, I was only 1 of 14 infinitive principals interviewing to be successfully hired...I can't imagine how the other 13 felt.

    4. Deceptive corporate policy & procedures: Infinitive "values" include "entrepreneurship" and "be great"...they tell you that they're different; they're all "GREAT!" and they all care about you. This can't be further from the truth...which is sadly ironic, as "Trust" is also a "core value."

    Paid time off is not accrued and described as "RTO" or responsible time off. Sounds great! Until you receive a performance review that punishes you for not being 100% chargeable, regardless of a health emergency, death in the family, your wedding, etc. While these seem like "responsible" reasons for taking time off to most employers, they're not to Infinitive.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Projects will be wherever work is and can be for a few weeks to a year or more. As with any consulting job, you have to be readily able to adapt to change.

    Pros

    Collaborative environment with smart colleagues that enjoy helping clients succeed
    Awesome workplace with friendly people and great perks
    Fun team building events
    Boutique consulting firm that really makes a difference for big name clients
    Growing company that credits its employees for success
    Leadership team encourages innovative ideas

    Cons

    Some client work requires weekly travel but such is the life of a consultant and the company tries hard to balance it out

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring the right people that want to be a part of an amazing team. Reward those that go above and beyond to expand Infinitive.

    Pros

    They keep you employed for 3 months

    Cons

    The CEO "D" is a self promoting bag of hot air. He lies more than anything else. His leadership team is the same as he is. Ship going down fast.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on one thing and do it right and above all be honest.

    Pros

    Amazing people, top down. Everyone genuinely care for your well being as a person and as a professional. Entrepreneurial thinking is encouraged. It's up to you if you want to succeed! Great alternative to my previous role where I was just a number (granted my immediate team was great).

    If I were to run a company it would be very similar to Infinitive's approach.

    Cons

    Don't have cons right now but will update as necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. I want to be great and kick ass!

    Pros

    Great culture and work life balance.

    Cons

    Lack of structure and career path (generally a good thing) sometimes requires a degree of trust or faith that the sacrifices you are making today will pay off in the long run.
