    Pros

    Loved the management, you get to manage your own work with the client. Loved the fact that they give you $1000 for your laptop and your insurance is fully paid by them.

    Cons

    Insurance for family members is expensive

    Pros

    Been at Matisia (Unify) for more than a year. The people that are hired are amazing. Lots of opportunity to meet people and stay connected. I feel I am supported and that it's up to me to choose how much I want to get involved, I like that. You can tell leadership works hard to keep communication flowing in order to keep things transparent. So far, I've had a great experience and I'm looking forward to see what...

    Cons

    You have to be independent to work here, some people need a little more hand holding and get frustrated. The flat structure is not for everyone. Also, the Seattle office can be a difficult location to get to.

    Pros

    100% going the right direction. The firm has dialed in what they're great at; added a lot of former Big 4 experienced capability leaders who are adding depth to the offerings, has Account Management alignment and a Leadership team who total has empathy for the consultants in at the client sites. Very collaborative open environment. Diverse client list is second to none in Seattle market.

    Cons

    none to speak of; I've been here several years and love it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote in field consultants to lean in and participate more. They're the lifeblood of the company and very skilled!

    I worked at Matisia Consultants full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, if you can last. Colleagues are generally very competent, friendly, and sincere, Management should do more do emulate their staff.

    Cons

    Temporary staffing firm, not a true consultancy. A lot of talk about people culture, but its a chew you up and spit you out environment that does not support its employees. CEO only cares about $, not people.

    Advice to Management

    Find your soul.

    I worked at Matisia Consultants full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly, caring colleagues in the non-leadership ranks.

    Cons

    Big talk and promises from leadership that never come true. The CEO paints a picture of loyalty and wanting to retain talent for the long term, but in reality you will be fired the second you roll off your project. If you are not in the inner circle of the leadership team, you are and will be replaced without hesitation.

    Advice to Management

    Just call it what it is, a basic staffing company. Stop telling lies, be honest for once (that means don't let the CEO talk at events).

    Pros

    Smart co workers. A few different clients to work for is decent diversification.

    Cons

    President is a liar. Their image is now so bad they're changing their name. I was with the company for 5 years and progressed nicely until I realized how much they use their employees.

    I worked at Matisia Consultants full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people that you work with on project are very knowledgeable and great to work with. The projects you work on typically lean toward true consultant projects though staffing rolls are starting to show up. If you enjoy consulting and selling then the company offers additional compensation for what you sell as well as additional career opportunities internally. Good monetary compensation but other benefits are...

    Cons

    Company has slid in terms of consultant engagements since I started. When I came on board it was a very consultant focused organization. With the promotion of several senior leaders over the past few months that changed to a sales first company. If you are looking to just be a consultant then they just don't know what to do with you. Their expectation is that you are selling as well as consulting. This is also the only...

    Pros

    Employs some quality consultants who are very bright and work with integrity

    Cons

    CEO is a used car salesmen. Most of the leadership team plays follow the leader and lacks any real integrity. Burning bridges with so many people in a small city doesn't seem smart.

    A few strong consultants and decent human beings mixed in with a lot of dishonest leadership and communication

    Cons

    No career and growth opportunities, despite leadership claiming it's a "choose your own adventure" company - the opportunities don't exist! If you are on the bench, it won't be long until you don't have a job. However, this will come as a complete surprise as you've been sold as a strong consultant in the past. Leadership will blame you and your performance/skills when ultimately it's a reflection of their declining...
