    Pros

    Great, collaborative team. You can learn a ton of working on divergent projects for various clients. Clients are also good and approachable. Leadership at Productive Edge is down to earth and their doors are always open for all employees.

    Cons

    Office space can be better, but besides that I can't think of anything else.

    Great place to work, but not too exciting

    Pros

    For context: I have worked at two other companies with this position taking part in software dev teams. Benefits are good! The work load here is not too much when compared to other places of work and managers encourage good work/life balance. An individual will typically be one team and that team will work on a single product with one group of stake holders. The office culture is great here, people are friendly and the office sporting competitions are fun. Upper management is approachable and capable Has a really good SDLC in place that makes work

    Cons

    If you are familiar with working in IT in corporate, then you know things typically move at a slower pace than say at consulting (technologically speaking). So the technology and the projects you work on aren't too exciting, that's par for the course. Pay is not the highest here Seems to be a lot of favoritism when looking to move up Don't usually promote from within

    Smart people, caring, cutting-edge

    Pros

    Great environment—people work collaboratively and are genuinely interested in the work you’re doing and your personal wellbeing. Great opportunities to work alongside some very smart people and push the limits of emerging technologies. Leadership works hard to maintain a relatively flat organization, providing employees with a lot of autonomy. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Tasks can sometimes be ambiguous and there are not always clear procedures, but this also provides an opportunity to establish your own approach.

    Collaborative, fun place with great people

    Pros

    My job is dynamic with a lot of responsibilities and different projects to do, which keeps work interesting. Flexible work environment with understanding management if you need to work from home or adjust work schedule. You are treated as a person not a dollar sign. Open floor plans, company online chats, and well stocked snacks/beer fridge keep employees collaborating and engaged on a daily basis. Very active social and charity committees. Executive team holds quarterly all-hands meetings to discuss state of company (finances/bonuses), special team projects/accomplishments, new employees and anything else relevant. I like this transparency. Management holds internal anonymous employee surveys and listens to employee feedback to improve. Everyone here is smart and humble and easy to work with, which is rare. Much more a collaborative vs competitive environment to grow.

    Cons

    Big drinking culture, would be nice to have more inclusive events not always centered on that. Company is in a growth spurt so can get hectic with new clients and new employees, but that's the cost of expansion so not necessarily a negative. If you don't like change this wouldn't be the right fit. As others have said, no 401k match is a con. The other benefits seem fine to me. As others have mentioned, bonus/raise policies are a bit unclear.

    Caring people, great culture!

    Pros

    Great atmosphere with no drama... people are genuinely here to grow in their profession and become stronger players in the tech world. Dynamic social and PE Cares initiatives, at least once a week there is a way to get out of the normal work setting and have some fun or to help out a cause with a group of coworkers. Management is also sincere about taking employee feedback seriously and making improvements where needed. Also doesn't hurt to have a rotation of the best Chicago craft brews on tap ready to go in the kitchen!

    Cons

    Not many cons, management does a good job listening to employee feedback and making adjustments when improvements are needed.

    Excellent Work Environment

    Pros

    Great culture and work environment. Open loft-style office surrounded by smart minds that allows for frequent knowledge and idea sharing. PE expects consultants to quickly take ownership of their projects upon joining, allowing for rapid integration into the company and work. Many opportunities to socialize with team members through happy hours, weekly social activities and volunteer events.

    Cons

    With PE's rapid growth, hoping to seeing more enthusiasm from leadership in investing in existing employees and promoting from within along with the push for recruiting outside talent.

    Pros

    People work hard for a common goal. Leadership is transparent. And the benefits are really good. Productive Edge is a great place to learn new skills and grow your career

    Cons

    Things are very fast paced and there are a lot of changes. Part of this is due to the industries served. You have to be on your toes and ready to adapt.
