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

    Pros

    My experience at PowerAdvocate has been overwhelmingly positive. The opportunities and experiences I have been granted with while here have far exceeded my expectations when I joined over 5 years ago. The variety of clients and projects I have interacted with have been both challenging and rewarding, even more importantly, through my time here I have acquired mentors and friends which have and will continue to have a...

    Cons

    While not necessarily "Cons", there are factors that one should evaluate, if considering a role within Client Services. For myself, I consider these to largely be "Pros", but they may be less appealing to others. - Consulting can be challenging: Consulting of course can weigh on one's personal life, traveling can be equally exciting and tiring. Additionally, consulting work is often subject to tight deadlines and...

    I have been working at PowerAdvocate full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get to work with smart people. There is constant opportunities to work hard and differentiate yourself. The travel is interesting and mostly fun. PowerAdvocate has a great small company vibe and now has the backing of a large public company. PowerAdvocate has done a great job tightening up the caliber of people that work here (through good hiring and minor letting go of specific weak links). One can have a great work...

    Cons

    No 401k match. Travel is a lot for some folks after a while. Salaries are a touch under industry average (but work life balance is probably higher than industry average).

    Advice to Management

    401k match is needed. Keep the pencils sharp with hiring great people and weeding out weak links. Offer stock options if there isn't an appetite for dollar based salary increases.

    I worked at PowerAdvocate full-time

    Pros

    Though well established, it has a start-up feel: good energy, excitement and the opportunity to be heard and share ideas and work across multiple domains.

    Cons

    This is not a Con, just important to know. Most of the career opportunities are consulting or sales/sales-related roles so can require a lot of travel. But there are opportunities for software engineers as well as data analysts that do not require travel.

    Advice to Management

    Opportunities exist and if you are a hard worker, you have the ear of management, but sometime the career path can not be as clear. Could provide a little more insight, but because they are so approachable, I would just encourage people to speak with their managers about idea and roles they are interested in .
