    The management is friendly, first name basis, open door policy and they have free lunch once every 2 weeks. They provide good training and have a strong knowledge base

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

    Pros

    I have always felt supported and that people have my back in the organization. Definitely lots of smart people around and many of the existing clients are great to work with too. Organization is not so big that it is still possible to know most of the other employees over time

    Cons

    Like any consulting company it has had its ups and downs. Has had difficulty lately retaining some good people. Needs more big and interesting projects to keep 'em.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the vision - make it relevant and accessible. Get some more solid sales and/or look at acquisition.

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

    Pros

    Paycheque, Free coffee, good people on the front lines, flexible hours. The last year had become very disheartening and difficult to keep my morale up to go in to do a good job. Leaving was such a relief.

    Cons

    No Leadership at all. Direction isn't clear. It was like what do we do to keep the lights on. Visions are never followed through. Top management gets hired, then they are gone.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the CEO and get some direction!!
