    I worked at Neudesic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Neudesic delivers the ability to work amongst some of the most talented software engineers and solution architects in the tech consulting industry.

    Cons

    During my period of employment, talent management did not execute a career plan or path for those seeking professional development and growth, as well as no mentorship programs that were supported.

    Pros

    Nuedesic was a great place to work. It is fast paced and customer focused. It was reminiscent of the typical IT consulting shop and at times were stressful yet exciting to please the customer.

    Cons

    Sometimes the forecasting was not clear. Not quite sure what the next client job would be, but that is also part of signing up for consulting in general.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you keep track and value your employees, they are the ones that keep the machine going. They drive sales based on previous customers reviews.

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

    Pros

    I get to work with some really talented people. I've learned a TON since starting at Neudesic. Although you have to log your time each day into a system (on what you did), there's no set schedule, no clocking in and out, and no hand-holding. Management gives you space to complete your tasks like an adult, and doesn't micromanage.

    This truly is an advanced skilled company. They're hiring process is pretty rigorous because they want to hire the best, but they also do internships and allow lower experienced people to work their way up which is always nice. They also host events in which students get an opportunity to intern & work on large projects and get a feel for the industry, which is more than other companies i've work for. Compensation is very good. Salary is a bit higher than market rate (because they want higher retention) and benefits package is super affordable and offers good coverage. Career advisors are assigned to each individual to help set goals and show how to achieve them.

    They have Utilization Bonuses but only if you're billing over 40 hours. Doesn't make a huge difference since salary compensation is very good (just make sure to negotiate salary in the beginning).

    Cons

    Sometimes the request for outside-the-office events can be a little hectic with work/life going on. Although not required, it's more expected to move up in the company. They want field leaders so attending ASU meetups & going to dinners (usually dinners are paid for) can be frequent.

    Advice to Management

    A bit better structure for career movement up in the company. Although there is a path, it's not easy to see how to connect the dots to move forward.

    Surrounded by smart technologists, big enough to be secure but small enough to make an impact, open to new ideas.

    Pros

    Cutting Edge Technology
    Friendly Management
    Fast Growth
    Learn on the Job
    Paid training, not like an internship can be

    Cons

    No 401k Matching
    Not all senior level consultants are best mentors so yours can be hit and miss, Mine is great so not an issue for me

    Advice to Management

    Honestly nothing. So far everything has been great. Maybe 401k matching but I can live without that

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

    Pros

    Great place if you want to grow and learn skills. Most of the people are absolutely genius and you will walk away smarter. Those people won't be around for long, unfortunately.

    Cons

    The company hasn't realized they are successful by some miracle. They have the right people and the right talent, but management decides to bathe in their money while everyone else sucks wind. Sooner than later there will be a reckoning, and management will have no more money. If only they came to terms with the company being successful because of its employees sooner, and took care of them accordingly. Oh well. Can't fix stupid. Take a course in politics before applying for a job here.

    Advice to Management

    I say this because this company was once great, and hope that management reads it. As much as you may want to pretend you are something great, you are not. The growth of this company is temporary at best until you realize the only thing making the company successful are the employees and their talents. Take care of them more proactively, and you may be fine. Keep swimming in money while leaving the employees treated as second class citizens, and sooner than later you will have no money, employees or company to worry about. Invest in your talent, not yourself. If growth is to be sustained, you must take a hit on your own wallet and share the wealth. 401k matching, real maternity and paternity leave. Just google Elon Musk or Netflix or any of the other successful companies and you'll understand why they remain successful. Neudesic had a bright future, but it is at a precipice. Make good choices now and it might stand a chance to survive. Ignore any advice, keep swimming in money, and you have 5 years left at best.

    Pros

    They promise to treat you like employee and if you are on the bench don't worry

    Cons

    They lie .....They treat you like a contractor, they use you then loose you when they are done with you, they hire as needed and let you go when done, they walk you to the door w/o any warning, they tell you you make too much $money when the execs are taking home $M's -- only take it if you know it is temporary - dont' let them fool you.

    I worked at Neudesic (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some good people that work at Neudesic and if you're fortunate enough to work with them, then your experience will be good.

    Cons

    Although there are some good people that work at Neudesic, there are many more good people who no longer work for the company. In recent years, there has been an incredible amount of brain-drain and it is reflected in the quality of work. There is an astonishing lack of maturity in management ranks and it permeates the entire organization.

    When it comes to bonuses, too often big promises are made with little results. Plans are often thrown together quickly with ambiguous metrics that ultimately cut in the favor of management to either not pay bonuses or to short-change employees.

    Advice to Management

    Reading the first few pages of the latest management book or the first few paragraphs of a HBS article is not strategy. You need to stop with the continuous reorganizations and instead, stick the basics. While you try to be on part with the Accentures and KPMG's of the world, at the end of the day, you're a staffing company. The reason why Slalom succeeds is because they invest, exercise good judgment and most of all, have patience.
