    I worked at ProKarma full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very diverse service offerings with leading / cutting edge consulting practices.
    True consulting focussed company.
    ProKarma puts clients and employees first with equal care. They are ready to bend over the back for customers and similarly ready to make any change in the policy to retain / show flexibility with employees.
    Compensated reasonably well and above market standards.
    Most of the time you get paid more than what is promised in the papers through discretionary, provided if you are top performer.
    Keep up their employee promises.
    Believes in work hard and play hard.
    Top management has great vision to take this consulting company to the top. Employees are rewarded for innovation and disruption.
    All tier 1 companies must watch out for tough competition from ProKarma.
    Great opportunity at all levels.
    Top mgmt. has grown from ground up (were engineers before) and hence understands and hears to employees problems at lowest level possible.
    ProKarma will grow significantly in the next 5 years in the key technology consulting areas like integration, automation, analytics, digital, etc.
    Highly result oriented in transformation consulting offering like Test Automation, DevOps, etc. Their case studies speak for it.
    Top mgmt is broad minded and never minds spending extra money to keep employees happy.
    Leadership has set clear priorities for the consulting organization: Customer satisfaction instead of revenue and value delivery / result orientation instead company profitability which is significantly different mindset compared to other consulting companies.
    As a former employee, I am looking forward to go back to ProKarma.

    Cons

    ProKarma needs focus in IP led delivery to be competitive.
    If you cannot relocate or be mobile (at the full cost of employer, stay away).
    Lacks global footprint.
    Regional presence in the US needs adequate sales strategy.
    Less process focus.
    Lacks enterprise tools

    Advice to Management

    Offshore leadership needs more mentoring and coaching. Need more focus on branding and identity management. Need to increase your social presence. Need more drive from top leadership in structured learning & development.

    Pros

    Some very nice competent people.

    Cons

    Bought by Carlyle Group - heads will roll
    Sales process is unscalable - they will not make numbers
    Very inexperienced C-suite, the CFO still signs every check!
    0% transparency
    Inflated titles
    Abusive senior sales management

    Advice to Management

    Learn to delegate - yesterday
    Lock in best talent - their resumes are on the street
    Sell solutions, not bodies
    Figure out strategic comp

    Pros

    There is nothing left of the acquired company to be positive about.

    Cons

    I knew that management was padding the reviews, but am troubled to see that my negative review has been deleted. These people are just sad and desperate.

    I have been working at ProKarma full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Little to no bureaucracy and very big aspirations
    - Family atmosphere (in Seattle at least – can’t speak to other offices) and a good focus on investing in relationships
    - Very adaptable – ProKarma sees market opportunities and they go for it.
    - ProKarma is willing to try new things while still maintaining their core competencies.

    Cons

    - Things are moving fast – it puts stress on existing processes
    - I’d like to see even more investment in intellectual property. There is some – but I would like to see more

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on building relationships with clients and consultants.

    Pros

    ProKarma is the best consulting firm I have worked for. Easy to do business with and very flexible. Good focus on leading technology and good talent. Down to earth executives.

    Cons

    Definitely some growing pains offset by hard work and good attitudes. Some career path definition for consultants would be a useful step.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in career path development.

    I worked at ProKarma full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There aren't any. Employees are miserable resulting in a terrible working environment. As KARMA goes....it is finally starting to catch up with them.

    Cons

    Founders operate under a shroud of secrecy. There is zero communication regarding company strategy.
    Distrust is rampant, both from management and employee perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Portraying a culture of family, values, and corporate responsibility is a blatant misrepresentation. It is one thing to not operate under these principles, but to list these as " values" on their website is a complete misrepresentation. Any current or past employee will tell you the same.

    Pros

    I enjoy working at ProKarma because senior management truly values hard work!

    Cons

    I do not have any cons.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give at this time. Keep up the good work!

    I worked at ProKarma full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are on Project then no one will bother you. Their immigration dept. (Vikram Mehta) is pretty good. They will take care of your expenses incurred at client location.

    Cons

    As soon as you are out of project, better find something soon or they will take you out at like a fly. I was with them for more than 5 years. They didn't think twice before making a decision or giving me any alternative. Sucked big time.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so cold hearted. Karma will bite you back individually. It's just the matter of time.

    Pros

    Cons

    This company is basically an Indian staffing agency.
