    I have been working at Object Partners full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Upper management seems very receptive to employee needs.
    Company tries to organize frequent get-togethers to keep consultants up-to-date and happy.
    Pay and benefits are great.
    Trip to Mexico every 3 years is a great perk.
    Health care truly is free. No premiums, and deductible is contributed by OPI into an HSA account.

    Cons

    The new office is far from downtown, and takes a long time to drive to.
    A lot of the gigs are staff augmentation as opposed to project work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great care and openness with the company, and I will stay another 5 years, or more.

    Pros

    Best benefits you can get. Pay is great. Trips and cabins you can visit all on your own. Everyone is really nice and supportive. They really look to trusting their employees and making sure that they remain happy with what they are doing to the best of their ability.

    Cons

    Contracts can suck in big ways. Not really OPI's fault, and they do their best to get you out of situations if you are unhappy.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, excellent coworkers, great pay, vacation homes, Mexico trips. OPI has it all and continues to make me happy. Great owner, great staff. I continue to enjoy the variety of contracts and the commitment to excellence by both management and the individual consultants. We ARE NOT contractors. We are employees that contribute to the company culture and technology community at large.

    Cons

    Like any growing company, OPI can struggle with clear communication at times. However, OPI continues to work in positive directions to mitigate these issues and keep the focus on making the consultants happy.

    Pros

    Object Partners really takes care of their employees. Work / life balance is a high priority from the top down. They take great care not to burn out their employees. Overtime is available but not required and always paid. Engaging clients across various industries. OPI consultants are generally seen as the top consultants in the area. Plenty of opportunity to supplement client work by giving training classes, presenting at meetups and conferences, and all of it is encouraged and rewarded by the company. The rewards program for referring new employees or new clients is pretty amazing too.

    Cons

    If you enjoy going to meetings and doing random online training courses then you probably won't like working as a consultant for OPI. And sometimes my spouse gets jealous of how many free lunches or fun happy hours the company offers to us as employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the amazing culture and valuing consultants as an asset in the organization as the company grows from a small to a medium size organization.

    Pros

    * Challenging gigs - companies that bring us in really need help.
    * Really great benefits - vacation time, sick time, health insurance with HSA, Roth 401k, etc.
    * Happy hours, user groups, lunches, company meetings/events are available, but OPTIONAL if you don't want to deal with it.
    * You get paid for long hours or internal work (marketing, mentoring, etc.) if you choose to do so - they don't bleed you dry to show your support for the company.

    Cons

    * If you WANT to transition from developer to "management", you won't find those sorts of opportunities here (that's fine for most programmers I know)
    * When we were in Mexico on the company trip, I got pretty sunburnt.

    Pros

    Variety of projects using Groovy, Grails, Gradle, AngularJS. Have been able to work remotely.

    Cons

    Projects have leaned more heavily towards maintenance, performance enhancements and bug fixes, as opposed to new development. That is only my personal experience in last year, and does not reflect across projects.

    I have been working at Object Partners full-time

    Pros

    -Very smart and impressive consultants that are looking out for each other.
    -Training and conference reimbursement.
    - Benefits are exceptional and almost unheard of nowadays.
    -Flat organization without many layers of management.

    Cons

    -No organization is perfect, but they try to do the right thing by their employees.
    -Might be a little intimidating with so many industry leaders, but a career path has been established for those that are interested.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay humble and do the right thing. At a time when so many companies lose sight of the people that are making them successful, you have not.
