    I have been working at Neudesic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing work environment. Processes are put into place to foster cohesive team work experience. In my opinion, managers and higher level executives are candid, and are eager to help.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of one right now. This is a small to medium size company. The only shortcoming that I see is that Neudesic has not explored opportunities in the federal government space.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the existing company culture.

    I worked at Neudesic full-time

    Pros

    Decent work life balance. If you are a software engineer with mediocre technical skills and can't cut it in a real product company, this is definitely better option than a corporate IT job.

    Cons

    - Not a technology company really. It's a sales organization where sales oriented employees reap most career advancements and financial compensations. Consultants are merely goods bought for a dollar and sold for two.
    - Most senior executives are aloof and distant. Their 10 to 4 workdays are spent contemplating ways to reenforce their self importance. As a mere consultant, you are literally invisible to them as they will completely ignore you.
    - Benefits are below average. Health, dental and vision are all expensive and the actual coverage is subpar.
    - By policy, VPs and directors who work on ppt and browse the web all day are given significantly faster laptop than consultants/developers.

    Advice to Management

    - Remove deadwood at corporate. HR/IT is utterly useless/incompetent. Would be better off using 3rd party services. Company could potentially save $$ and consultants would be merrier.
    - Too many cheifs not enough indians.

    Pros

    Some smart people in consulting team.

    Cons

    In NY/NJ "office" they have only staff augmentation projects in the middle of nowhere in NJ, so effectively Neudesic is just a staffing agent. They claim that they hire for Neudesic not for the client, but they let the client interview you and make final decisions, and the "DPD" would simply kick you to the curb and let you go once the project is done. All they care is the billing hours you logged, even when you are sick as there's NO paid sick day at Neudesic.

    Pros

    Met some people that love technology and are good at implementing solutions.

    Cons

    Nothing but staff aug jobs and despite what they preach, they do not practice it. They constantly state that the consultants are the heart of their business and they are in the business of people. They are solely in the business of making money and do not care about the people.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with all the fluff and speak the truth to your employees.

    I have been working at Neudesic (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hands down the best talent of any consulting shop in town.

    Our work is regularly recognized by Microsoft as being best of breed.

    Cons

    Constantly reorganizing, no consistent strategy/leadership, and now they're whacking people left and right with little explanation.

    Also, there's a huge caveat to the "best talent in town" part. Lately they have been bringing on subpar people. My theory is that they finally realized that top tier talent will simply move on if they get pigeonholed or stuck on a bad project with no hope of being reassigned.

    Advice to Management

    Calm down and think long term. You don't need to restructure the entire company every time you have a slow month or two.

    Instead of lowering the talent bar, look at yourself and understand why your "A" Players are leaving - and work on fixing the root cause.

    Pros

    Small company, limited people to interact with

    Cons

    This company is nothing more than a regular consulting company placing people on projects.
    But they pose themselves as a services provider.

    They do not match employee skills to the project needs. They just care for billing placing experienced employees on low level projects. This only hurts your career where you loose your skills and experience.

    They always want you to do more than what they can offer to you.
    You need to go above & beyond to prove yourself.

    Pros

    While on the bench (after projects) you can train and finish certifications.
    You can learn the latest and greatest technologies (on and off project).

    Cons

    Too much bench time feels like lurking doom.
    Very easy to burn out.
    Travel when there is no local work and search expands nationally.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more sales people who can find work for your consulting engineers.
