    Pros

    Oracle product knowledge and connections within Oracle enable us to give the best service to our clients and help drive the direction of the product. Great teamwork, partnerships and sharing of expertise. Excellent career growth. Sense that everyone "has your back" and is pushing for success in projects.

    Cons

    As with all consulting companies, long hours and extensive travel can be hard on work/life balance. Management is supportive of time off, but we as consultants often fall into the trap of wanting to sacrifice our own balance to ensure that the client has enough support. Risk of burnout is high if this isn't managed well.

    Advice to Management

    Help break down the silos between internal teams so that transitions feel more seamless for clients.

    I have been working at KBACE Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    KBACE has proven to be a great place to work, both before and after the recent acquisition. Most employees day to day business has not changed, and over the past year, it has been proven that, dispite changes in leadership, employees are still valued. Management/Leadership teams have worked hard to make our transition as seamless as possible, as well as fair.
    The opportunity to travel and meet with clients and co-workers is there, but with a large push in the Cloud, there is still plenty of time to be home as well - leading to a good work life balance.
    Co-workers are some of the smartest in the industry, and the opportunity to learn is there for anyone who wants it - I can honestly say that I would not be where I am today without the people I work with, and it's a company culture to pay that forward.

    Cons

    General cons of consulting - nothing company specific.

    Pros

    The people. Historically (and hopefully in the future as well), the people at KBACE have been its strength. No one will say they don't have 5 min to spend with you on an issue you are having. So much collaboration occurs, and that is surprising, since 99% of the population works from home. Instant messaging, and remote meeting tools are utilized on a constant basis so that people can ask quick questions of each other or demonstrate issues or new solutions to each other.

    Bi-Weekly meetings occur that all consultants are invited to, in order to see new functionality, modules they may not be familiar with, new products and services that are being sold.

    In house training systems have been developed, so new and experienced consultants can learn Oracle modules on their own.

    With the acquisition, the owners(s) really went to bat for their employees, making sure we were not short-changed in the transaction.

    Cons

    If you are a remote worker, you need to be able to motivate independently. When not at a client, you can feel isolated if you don't initiate with other co-workers.

    Since the acquisition, internal systems have become more cumbersome. (feel like a traitor entering data in PeopleSoft after only working with Oracle for so long) It has been a transition going from a small company to a very large one.

    Advice to Management

    Keep remembering where we came from. Keep building on those initial values.

    Pros

    Small enough that you dont feel like a number. Big enough to be competitive in the market. They know that their employees are what makes them who they are.

    Cons

    Most employees are remote. If you are not actively trying to be involved, its easy to get detached.

    Pros

    At KBACE there is a strong sense of collaboration and support from management. Over the years a large library of collateral and support has been developed to streamline business process and help deliver a strong product to the client.
    There is a reasonable amount of travel but lots of opportunity to sleep in your own bed.

    Cons

    Despite most consultants working at home the only piece of equipment we are provided for our home office is a laptop. No peripherals are supplied but can be purchased and written off as work expenses if not reimbursed.
