    My advice to our board is to continue investments into new markets and technologies. The great acquisitions we make every year continue to diversify our portfolio and expand our footprint ultimately providing further value for our clients and growth areas for our consultants.

    Pros

    Exceptional culture of inclusion, integrity, respect for the individual and high professional standards. Very smart people who have their head on straight and want to serve our clients. Senior leadership is exceptional and highly supportive of the organization., accessible and down to earth. The markets we serve are hot and Perficient has a great reputation within our client community. Company is growing and lots of room for personal and career growth.

    Cons

    We are not as well known as some of our competition but that is changing. Our clients are our best supporters and the word is getting out that we do exceptional work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the great culture and grow!!

    Pros

    Fun and interesting work. Dynamic environment with opportunity to try different things.

    Cons

    Workloads can be cyclical based upon client demands.

    Advice to Management

    Dancing between the elephants toes can be tough, but I loved the higher profit margin business of management consulting - and the work is typically more interesting. If you're going to play in both that space and the staff augmentation space, promote your high performers and put them in more autonomous roles in the MC area - they'll love you for it and will help your bottom line by staying busy (i.e. billable) all of the time.

    I worked at Perficient full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Able to work without constant oversight.
    Good peer relationships and sense of teamwork but much of it is just for sense of survival because leaders don't always communicate clear objectives.

    Cons

    Perficient is a bait and switch opportunity. Despite being in business two decades they are nowhere on the level of real competitors in the tech consultancy arena. I spent several years both in India and in the U.S working with top-tier players. Perficient had approached me twice in recent years before finally presenting a strong window of opportunity that aligned with my own goals. Or so I thought when accepting a final offer. At the end of the day Perficient thinks of itself as a leader and as a solutions provider but it's real inner machinery is a roughly run staffing augmentation operation. Poor planning is common and even when discussion is raised about possible obstacles or impedances the show must go on despite the facts. Management constantly underbids to land projects usually those that other firms were too smart to pick up or often the collateral damage left behind by poor prior engagements. This resulted in stepping into roles and projects that were either over-budget, under-staffed or way over deadlines from our initial involvement. Morale was at times insufferable due to lack of clear direction or any thought toward strategy. Another thing ..the recruiters like to paint the technical roles as remote. Nothing is further from the truth. If you are not just about willing to live from a suitcase you won't make it here even though other companies do the same AND better work with sometimes fully remote teams. For some reason Perficient hasn't figured this out either so be prepared.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about what is expected and what is offered. Don't sell something to new employees that is not the reality, Also if you want to be considered a mover and shaker go study the leaders in the industry and model there approach.

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

    Pros

    In a cool neighborhood of Milwaukee, close to food.

    Cons

    Working at Perficient was like going to high school all over again. If you didn't fit in with the "cool" people or had the same views (political, etc) you were shunned. You were pushed in a corner and treated poorly. Throughout the day you could hear your boss typing to one of your subordinates to talk crap about you. It was awful.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to give because management is part of the problem.
