    I have been working at Prolifics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    nice co-workers, can work from home

    Cons

    - lack of communication from management. I've been here for 3 years and have never once seen a commission statement.
    - President does not care about it's employees, there are no training the sales people so those territories are just a revolving door of people coming and going that can't meet their targets.
    - bonuses are unachievable and for the most part are not paid ontime.
    - no clear career path - there are about 5 people in operations that are doing the work of 15. every time someone leaves there are no promotions, no raises, no rehires, just more work dumped upon the team

    Advice to Management

    realize your talent and pay them what they are worth. offer acheivable bonuses and strive to pay them on time

    Pros

    If you have some god father that is the biggest Pro

    Cons

    The sales team does not WIN a thing!! The so called client partners have no clue about happening at customer site they don't even come and meet customers but they just want to charge customer for an exorbitant amount.

    Ground level delivery does everything who have low salaries and most of them are some relatives of either a VP or director, They have a bonus component in salary which they never pay and HR communication is NIL a very in competent CEO and HR

    Advice to Management

    Start communicating with employees have an open mind to listen to ground level people fire all of your Directors / VP get fresh blood who understand services business

    Pros

    few... may be a good stepping stone for some, most don't stay long

    Cons

    Focused on spreadsheets and numbers not on delivering client value or employee job growth/satisfaction
    Execs are ADD or clueless with Strategy
    Management likes to play politics, play people against each other etc.
    Don't expect to be paid your bonuses (read the fine print)
    Didn't live up to promises (make sure you get everything in writing)
    Most execs are politicians or bean counters, rather than effective managers
    Others are battlefield promotions (due to high attrition), with very little management experience
    Pay is too low to bring good talent in
    Seems to be in a downward spiral
    No trust in culture, for good reason

    Advice to Management

    Replace most execs and management with competent leadership

    Pros

    On time pay and standard benefits like other comparable companies.

    Cons

    1.Bonuses plan is practically useless even though employee is on 100% billable.
    2. Annual reviews does not happen properly, managers do not have care or time in recognizing employee contributions over the year. There is no special about this organization to differentiate from other IT consulting companies. You can expect no or very basic hike that does not even match up the YoY inflation.
    3. Employee engagement is very poor due to lack of proper Sr. Management interest in the employee day to day activities, if u r on staff Aug kind of consultant there is hardly any connection to the employee. This is effecting performance review as well.
    4. Very high insurance costs and very limited plans offered.
    5. Very limited vacation plan, of course Prolifics is not special compared to others.
    6. Terrible president.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employee career growth, listen to them, clarify their concerns, make employees to gain confidence and trust Ness at the company and be connect to each employee. Pay well as per employee experience and expertise, don't be greedy. Make high priority efforts to retain talent. Retention is only possible if u pay well matching the market. Don't assume you r on par paying salarie matching market that is incorrect.
