      Pros

      they offered Good Pay they offered Good Benefits Occasionally they had Wine Wednesday Best coffee ever Good restaurant across the street

      Cons

      This is not a company for those in their mid-career. This company is very reminiscent of the environment held by Oracle Retail (RETEK). Filled with many A Types who work round the clock. If you have a family or life, not a good place to work at all. While they do say you can work remotely, I was never allowed to do that. Many of the employees are uptight....no wonder, they are being worked to death. To the point where someone sent me an email asking me to return their cereal bowl, which was a plastic container they bought some ice cream in. Really? You are so uptight that you are calling me out on a disposable ice cream container. I hated it there, the atmosphere was horrible, the people were definitely not friendly at all, and it was in a super crappy part of Minneapolis (1200 block of Washington Ave.).

      Pros

      Cons

      The retail industry has been tough lately so there has been shifting in required skillsets away from core merchandising to point of sale

      Unsustainable

      Pros

      - Pay above industry average - Awesome medical benefits - 401k match - Casual culture - Work from anywhere in USA from home too unless you are traveling - Great co-workers.

      Cons

      Everything is great until there is a slowdown in business. The business model is not built for sustainability. Every one is happy getting paid great, working on great projects until the revenue is great, fun environment, friendly co workers. BUT any kind of bump and everything is in chaos, people get laid off, upper management jumps ship, pay raises/bonuses are on hold and the environment becomes cut throat for people to remain on projects to show productivity ... In short - No long term vision.

      Pros

      Great benefits, top in industry for medical coverage, time off etc. Very competitive pay compared to others in industry. Management works for you, and stands behind you.

      Cons

      Difficult work-life balance as a consultant. Too much travel. Leadership did not provide full visibility to concerns. Could have been more transparent about the direction of the business and the potential struggles. Not much room for growth.

      Pros

      The benefits are outstanding. The people used to be the big reason to work here and made the company stand out from all the other Consulting companies. However, this is no longer the case as so many people have left.

      Cons

      The remaining employees are extremely disgruntled. Upper Management has not been held accountable for one bad decision after the next which has resulted in people either leaving on their own accord or through multiple rounds of layoffs. Communication is lacking severely, and any communication that does take place is misleading. The recent management has turned the place from a fun, caring company into a cold, toxic environment.

      Pros

      Good benefits, some good people. Very little here to add with the exception of what is mentioned above in trying to meet the 20 word minimum required for this field.

      Cons

      Poor leadership, financial problems with Cashflow. Body shop environment and the business is on a massive decline with no clear strategy. Just another SI
