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

    Pros

    Talented, smart coworkers, and interesting clients. Good opportunity to learn about Financial technology. Fellow grunts are friendly and very approachable.

    Cons

    Heavy on the office politics. Depending on what team you get thrown on, your experience can be wildly different. Compensation wasn't competitive, and salary has increased 56% since leaving. Projects are approached with frantic patching to quickly resolve issues rather that putting effort into fundamental underlying flaws. It was like a daily fire drill. Just point to the left when assigning blame.

    Advice to Management

    Management tends to lose sight of the forest focusing on the trees. Give employees feedback, training, and career direction. Time is wasted explaining comma placement in emails and what color shoes were worn to a client site rather than product implementation. Expectations are that you just put your head down and do what you are told with no consideration given to alternative solutions. Rampant micromanagement is counter productive to solution generation

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

    Pros

    Professional environment, many different projects, lots of growth.

    Cons

    It's really a staff augmentation company, not a consulting company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat employees like cattle herding from project to project based on availability.

    I have been working at NorthPoint Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are very supportive and professional people working at Northpoint. Working as a consultant is the best thing for a computer programmer, you are open to many different technologies, ideologies, techniques. As a consultant you are never stagnant, you get to learn new languages or new techniques since not all projects are a like, you meet interesting people. Working in different and some pretty amazing companies gives you an opportunity to learn to communicate with different personalities and adapt to all kinds of situations. There is a lot of growth opportunities at Northpoint, since you can start as an Associate and grow all the way to Senior Manager or even Partner. They have a culture of promoting from within as well as teaching their employees by having "lunch and learns" and all other learning opportunities. I do feel like they are my daytime family, we do some fun things together too, so it's not always all about work.

    Cons

    For me personally there are really no cons here. I would agree with other reviewer here that sometimes projects are not 100% estimated but I think that's a normal agile planning issue that exists in any place where planing is not easily achieved.

    Advice to Management

    . I am very happy with people I work with and who manage my projects. I believe there will be an opportunity for the managers to take some workshops on how to be a better at communication.
