    I worked at Kadix Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Left you alone to do good work for the client

    Cons

    Not a lot of upward mobility

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little more on employees, try not to be so cheap (e.g. Christmas party was during the day so you couldn't bring a spouse and they went cheap on it)

    Pros

    Seemingly friendly and capable people. Above-average salaries for similar consulting positions in the area.

    Cons

    The projects are boring. You spend time at the client site, which had horrible working conditions. The benefits were awful, and employees constantly use the "underdog" status when subcontracting with larger consulting companies. In the end, the projects that I were on billed the client for my time, but never really offered any solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Ask how your consultants are being treated, and pay attention to them.


  8. "Good place initially but on a steep decline"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, access to senior leadership initally, flexibility

    Cons

    Poor knowledge management, subjective review process, company acquired by a less diverse/larger/older company, poor communications, very little new opportunities, less ability to move to different projects.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more often, be honest with employees we can take it.


  9. "Once great, showing signs of decline"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Most of the benefits of a boutique firm (access to Execs, upward mobility)
    Some benefits of the larger firm (decent training budgets, decent backend systems)
    Was once a great place to work (see Cons)
    Most of the Execs are great people to work for, they are kind, have integrity, extremely compentent
    Work/life balance is still very good for most people, especially compared to our competitors

    Cons

    There is a widespread sense that DRC (owner of Kadix) is not managing it well
    DRC's IT support seems to be terribly inadequate, they've botched several people's laptop migrations
    There are some archaic processes that do not make sense (expense reports)

    Advice to Management

    Fix IT support problems
    Minimize bureaucratic hurdles (have to streamline expense reporting)

    Pros

    They treat employees well and have a very clear advancement program listing exactly what you must do for each promotion. They have average company events consisting mostly of free drinks and food nearby twice a year. Senior management appreciates good work and promotes people freely, giving bonuses and recognition for outstanding effort.

    Cons

    As a contractor, they will sometimes not have meaningful work for you and you will not gain skill and be bored for possibly months at a time. This can be frustrating and lead to departures. You may also be required to work at locations that are not acceptable to you.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to keep unfulfilled employees happier during down times between projects.
