    Pros

    Great benefits, recently expanded headquarters, flexible time, always promoting diversity and inclusion, great mix of experiences including top notch technical support to solve most of the problems during a project. You can always find enthusiastic and smart people like John Croswell, Chief Sales Officer. He really cares deeply for me and has been instrumental in my involvement in multiple rewarding projects.

    Cons

    Workload is not always within your control there is always an element of ups and downs when supporting clients.

    Advice to Management

    Continue and expand the effort to create community. Such as the recent World of Prime 8! celebration where several innovative technologies and services were introduced.

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

    Pros

    Joined over a year ago and meaning to write a review as this place is just wonderful. I have worked at few consulting jobs before but Prime 8 has been the best so far.

    I can not say enough about how they found me the perfect project for my experience. I love my client and my account manager who meets with me often and helps me with some of the harder project deliverables. He has been working for Prime 8 for 3 years now I think and he just makes my day every time I see him.

    There was a holiday house warming party last month which was fun- I think they moved into much bigger office and the location is close to the freeway which is nice.

    The pay is better than industry from my point of view and the benefits are also good I have not used all the options but from what I have seen they are good.

    I have been trying to get my friends to join

    Cons

    They do not give you a laptop when you start
    Timesheets are bit of pain

    Advice to Management

    none

    I have been working at Prime 8 Consulting as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hungry team that collectively seeks out business, incenting frontline consultants to act as business developers.
    Very strong relations within MSFT, but have now expanded the book of business to include multiple fortune 500 in the Puget Sound.
    Strong sense team between consultant ... can always shoot an email to an expert and get a timely reply.
    Significant flexibility in managing your workload and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Not enough happy hour parties or other mechanism to meet fellow consultants f2f.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to proactively manage consultants as their professional growth depends more than churning projects. I would rate the team 4 of 5 at this point - doing well but could do more.
    Create more opportunities for consultants to meet f2f. I think are some network effects being lost because we don't know each other (I am sure there are dozen Prime8 consultants that I actually, but would need to meet in person to recognize).

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

    Pros

    With many years of consulting experience I was looking for a firm that offered high end strategy work. I found this in Prime 8, in many cases they work with GM's , VP's to great strategy form the group, division. I am used to this type of work as I came from Big 4 Consulting, and feel comfortable and energized by Prime 8.

    Cons

    They are working on recruiting function, adding more to the tram.

    Advice to Management

    Keep developing the passion on the team.
