    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Object Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great and passionate IT people, flexible work arrangement, great projects, lots of trust from upper management to run the project, family-friendly work environment.

    Cons

    Performance review and salary review could be improved, need a space to eat with other colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to real performers who really want to make big differences to the projects and to the company as well. Reward or acknowledge those who have worked hard. And, need to pay more attention to some non-performers who could stay under the radar from time-to-time. To ensure everyone contributes the same share of effort in projects.

    Pros

    Big company. Lots of resources. Big software projects. Some very experienced developers.

    Open your mind to new tech & foster a more co-operative/peer to peer learning environment.

    I worked at Object Consulting full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A good place to kick off your career. Working alongside great people. Flexible working conditions. Stable career if you do not mind the lack of career development and the pay.

    Cons

    Lack of individual staff development in mid-career. Culture has been deteriorating over the past few years, becoming top head management. The focus has been shifting to profitability over staff wellbeing, not standing up for the employees. Salary below average, no pay raise for several years at times. Traditional project delivery, lack the courage to innovate, often under-resourced and overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Think about how to retain staff, continual improvement of staff morale, and reflect on why people had left. Promote individual career development, not just a sentence on performance reviews. Performance review and promotion processes need improvement.

    I worked at Object Consulting

    Pros

    Great colleagues, some of the principal consultants were excellent. Varied work. Reasonable work/life balance. Great partnerships with senior technology companies. Friendly and intelligent senior management. Respectful working environment. Strong commitment to training and development. Long history.

    Cons

    Trying to be all things to all people without the necessary resources. High turnover amongst junior staff. At the time, strategic direction was questionable. Overlapping roles and responsibilities sometimes engendering conflict. Lack of strong management which resulted in some underperforming middle managers.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure roles and responsibilities are well defined.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Object Consulting full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Object had a great team with some really dedicated, talented IT professionals, many of which have gone on to do some really great things. There was a strong culture of technical excellence and we built some great solutions for our clients.

    Cons

    Leadership was tied to traditional ideas about how to deliver projects. Sales team was often misaligned with delivery teams which meant that delivery teams were under schedule / cost pressure before projects even started.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on how things are to be done, let solutions emerge from your talented team. Provide a vision and a strategic view.
