    I have been working at Plaster Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Love the company, people and balanced culture. Leadership goes out of their way to connect with us, and the company is transparent about how things are going both good and bad. I like how they are responsive to feedback and ask for our input to help shape the practices.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind. Keep up the great work.

    I have been working at Plaster Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Opportunity to work with people who know their stuff inside and out - The firm has very few delivery issues (in stark contrast to other places I have worked) so there is a feeling of stability - The firm has been intentional in its growth which translates to steady, managed growth vs. growth spikes and cliffs that often contribute to "churn and burn" in similar sized companies - The environment here is one of a...

    Cons

    Not too much to add here. If anything more of a cultural expectation of the industry - there is plenty of opportunity but as a consultant you need to initiate and be self-directed. You don't have a "career manager" YOU ARE your career manager. You will get support but you need to engage your Practice Director to drive these conversations. The other piece I would add is that, while there are social events (and they...

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Plaster Group full-time

    Pros

    Nothing to report on this topic

    Cons

    Consultants are given a Contingent Offer prior to coming on payroll, consultants are expected to market themselves and their ideas to the sales team, and to interview with clients, promoting the business without being paid. This is in violation of wage laws.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the criminal acts and treat your consultants, the ones that made you a millionaire, with respect.

    Pros

    Great set of people. Truly understand Agile.

    Everyone is at their own sites working & had to find own work in certain roles. The pay (for me) was low for the market.

    Pros

    Plaster Group is the first company I've worked at that genuinely cares about their clients and employees, and I don't say that lightly. The founder and CEO strives to make each employee feel valued and he helps them work to their fullest potential. There is a high level of support from the team – ego never shows itself. If you have a question or need help, you have resources who are more than happy to offer assistance....

    It's been a long time since I worked for a company that cared so much about the success and happiness of their team members.
