    I have been working at Prime 8 Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I joined about 6 months ago and am having a wonderful experience so far. I am working for an amazing client and on a project that really makes an impact. I have worked for 2 other consulting companies including a global one and can say that this place is just as good as the global company. For example my account manager worked with me during onboarding and during first weeks. He also has worked for a global consulting firm so he knew what my expectations were.

    The company benefits are wonderful and I use the 401K plan for savings. The healthcare is better than most from what I can tell. They have company events that are low pressure and FUN.

    They seem to be adding new people each week and my team has been growing with fellow consultants. So far I have had a great time.

    Cons

    Maybe just that offices are open plan and not always private.
    Had to buy my own laptop - said it was bring own device company.
    That is it so far.

    Advice to Management

    You have nice team.

    Pros

    Great opportunities and great culture. Fantastic leadership and collaboration. Great balance between Tech and business, also great work life balance.

    Cons

    Not growing fast enough. Although a senior business management company it needs to also be open to staffing etc.

    Advice to Management

    roll the dice on people so you can be aggressive on the client side and in return grow and add more consultants thus equaling more revenue.

    I have been working at Prime 8 Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Applied online and had been told good things about the company.

    The interviews were detailed and I met with two Directors of the company. After about 1 week I worked with the Sales Director to interview with a client. The role with the client is great fit for me personally. I won the project and I onboarded quickly and have been working on the client site since starting.

    So far I am really enjoying it and the move to this company was been easy. In particular I liked working with the Sales Director as he seems to really care about finding me the right role. The rest of the team was supportive and I am glad I am here.

    Cons

    1. There is no PTO as projects are paid hourly
    2. Work on client location and not at offices
    3. Do not have offices in CA

    Advice to Management

    The events are fun and training is something that I want to attend.

    Pros

    Great culture with a broad range of high caliber talent

    Actively diversifying across industries to provide a broader client base, providing opportunities

    Cons

    I'm less than a month in, I haven't observed any major improvement needs

    Advice to Management

    None at this time

    Pros

    Impressive leadership team and I am excited about the vision for Prime 8's future that the management team have shared with us. I get an opportunity to work on exciting projects, yet still maintain the flexible work environment I prefer. Prime 8 offers very strong benefits for myself and my family and I commend their focus on Women and Community and actively participate in the activities they offer and develop. Training is also a strong focus and i enjoy attending the regular training sessions provided. If you want to be part of an exciting company that is on the rise, I would highly recommend joining Prime 8 Consulting.

    I don't have any obvious cons.
