    I worked at Prime 8 Consulting full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Competitive pay and benefits. - People oriented with a great leadership team. You can feel the warmth cascading from the top - Nice office, great location. - Flexible work. You can work from home, and depending on your project there's a lot of flexibility to manage your agenda. I made a lot of personal trips and was always able to find a way to make it work, combining work and pleasure - Opportunities to drive impact...

    Cons

    Cons I can think of are inherent to the nature of the consultant role in a small company, and not specific to Prime 8. As a consultant you are always relying on your project being renewed to make sure to keep your job stability. For a small company like Prime 8 is difficult to keep you in the bench for a long time, so the smartest thing you can do is perform strongly and keep your customer happy to secure the contract,...

    I worked at Prime 8 Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Very polite and seemingly friendly people, so long as you don't actually need anything. Benefits offered, but they weren't competitive.

    Cons

    Bring your own equipment, no reimbursement. Poor transparency. Very shakey project roll-off Does not recruit business based on in-house talent Prioritizes client whims above all

    Advice to Management

    I think diversifying into solutions is the right strategy; as a consultancy, Prime 8 does little to stand out to talent or clients. If you're truly committed to keeping great talent, you'll need to commit wholeheartedly to a consultant-first approach. And that's going to mean hiring for culture fit and training, as well as firing clients who don't jive with your business model. You will have no trouble keeping great clients...

    I worked at Prime 8 Consulting full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Worked with several wonderful people and many folks there are a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    They offer more than they deliver. I was brought on-board assuring them I would commit to them for 3 years on my consulting contract with my client. After 6 months they lost the contract, and I was in limbo for a few months working on one-off projects. Then I was placed on another assignment but after a year, they lost that assignment. Once again I was in limbo without any work. THere is a lot of promise, but not...

    I worked at Prime 8 Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, mediocre benefits, free snacks bar

    Cons

    This company is the worst I ever worked for. They will commit to anything and everything to clients just to get the projects. Then they will hire people for that project only by again saying anything to get people to join them. The worst part is the incompetent management who has no vision, no support system for consultants on the ground. When projects fail due to unrealistic commitments they made to get the project,...

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care for the people, take responsibility for the consultants you hire, stop deceiving clients and people, learn to take responsibility for your own failures instead of blaming it on consultants, put in support framework to help consultants be successful in their projects and stop throwing consultants under the bus for your own shortcomings and failures. And stop pushing people to vote you best when you are not.

    I have been working at Prime 8 Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have only been here a few months but I do like what I see and hear. I really enjoyed the new hire lunch with the Owners and hearing their vision and values. It made it more real for me. They definitely don't want me to just go to the client and not be part of the family. Compensation was better than my last firm and I do like the benefits plan.

    Cons

    Not really anything yet.

    I have been working at Prime 8 Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Prime 8 hires some of the best and the brightest talent around. Their Talent Acquisition team is very responsive and are constantly pursuing the perfect fit for consultants and projects. The CEO/COO take time each month to meet with new hires at a luncheon at the office, and the new hires get the opportunity to meet one on one with the CEO within 3 months of their hire date. Management is VERY much available to anyone...

    Cons

    Maybe have a few more events for employees - the summer BBQ was fun, would like to do more like that so we could get to know our co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and keep on recognizing your employees when they go above and beyond, It's important to know that their hard work is paying off! And...keep on hiring good talent. It says a lot for Prime 8 when people ask where I work!

    Pros

    Good people, and they are still trying to find themselves pay is good, benefits are ok. Tech focused

    Cons

    Same as most consulting firms in the area, so nothing special here, more staffing than consulting despite trying to make it look like a consulting firm. Leadership tries to make a culture, but it just doesnt work.

    Pros

    Nespresso Machine in office. This list isn't truncated, I just need a 5 word minimum so I'm including this explanation.

    Cons

    If you're coming from a professional, professional services firm, several things will be surprising: a) Non-billable time isn't compensated. You should probably stop reading here if this matters to you. Of course, this is in the fine print of your contract, but consultants are not FTEs. At no point will anyone during the recruiting, onboarding, or your first time sheet's submittal explain this commonality to you. Also,...
