    I worked at Perficient full-time

    Pros

    Over the years, Perficient had acquired lots of good companies and brought in a large pool of talents with different skill sets. There are a lot of good people to work with and learn from

    Cons

    Lack of vision by the core management team. They are more interested in answering to Wall Street analysts' concerns than growing the company as a whole to benefit all employees.

    Advice to Management

    Define a clear career path for employees at every level so that Perficient is not just a place to collect a paycheck. Keeping all the talents you acquired is much cheaper than finding new ones.

    Be seen. Get people excited

    Pros

    relaxed dress code, good management

    It's consulting, so if you looking for a pure coding job in one specific program language, you might not like it in this business

    I have been working at Perficient full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a challenging uphill climb that definitely has room for improvement. They have a very diverse culture that makes you want to succeed.

    Cons

    The work ethic of some drastically undermines others. It's hard to get a sense of true cohesion while others laze around.

    I worked at Perficient full-time

    Pros

    Seems relaxed and laid back

    Cons

    Got to play the game well or you are out.
    Different rules for different people.
    You must listen to the hints very closely.
    When you are not being treated properly there is no one to turn to.

    I have been working at Perficient full-time

    Pros

    The culture is amazing and extremely positive. I left to go to a competitor but came back because I missed the collaborative culture at Perficient. I think the pay is also very competitive and good work is acknowledged.

    Cons

    3 weeks vacation policy is not competitive. They also need to pay more attention to the benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the vacation allowance.

    I worked at Perficient full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Literally nothing, I'm a positive person and cannot muster up anything decent to say.

    Cons

    Awful culture, company that's grown solely by acquisition. Poor talent, even worse leadership and zero transparency. If you value your career and this company acquires your place of employment I highly recommend leaving immediately.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to illegally avoid paying out earned commissions
