    Pros

    Very forward thinking company that rewards its employees well when you perform at your best or go above and beyond. Lots of room for advancement as well as several different career paths that you can explore.

    Cons

    Challenging atmosphere and challenging clients. Be prepared to work a lot at times. If you keep saying yes, the more work you will get.

    Pros

    You get a lot of client-facing time at an entry level position. Not to mention getting exposure to different industries.

    Traveling/Points/Flexing trips to other cities on the weekend. Typical consulting perks.

    Cons

    Poor onboarding resources - such as documentation or proper introductory courses. Your experience at the company really depends on which project you are assigned to starting out and whether or not the experienced resources on your team are helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on giving senior employees more incentive to stay instead of hiring new employees by the numbers. Seasoned employees are astronomically more valuable and management seems to have a hard time seeing that.

    I worked at Manhattan Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great peer group to start with and decent starting salary for entry level consultant positions. Beautiful office and office gym.

    Cons

    projects can be very variable as far as work load goes. There always seemed to be issues with balancing staffing and work load. The project I worked on consisted of needlessly long hours: 12-14 hour days. Travel is highly variable based on projects, you could travel 4 days/week every week or only travel 4 days over 6 months. Consultants general spend most of their time testing software which can be feel repetitive and mind numbing.

    Advice to Management

    There always seemed to be unbalance between staffing levels and project work loads. While a group of consultants assigned to one project might not have a whole lot going on, another project group would be working 12 hour days.

    Pros

    Manhattan Associates takes great care of their employees. It is very obvious that they want you to enjoy the job that you are doing and will do whatever is reasonably necessary to keep you happy as an employee.

    Cons

    Sometimes you might get put on a project where the client is a nightmare, you are having to work overtime consistently, and the project manager is not good at their job.

    Advice to Management

    Promote project managers from within as these have been the best experience for me. Clients also like PMs that have functional knowledge of our products.
