      Pros

      - Everyone is so kind and supportive! - A real learning culture, where it's TOTALLY okay to ask for help or tell someone you don't know how to do something. - So many resources they have an internal "Propel U" team that's all about learning and development for the Consultants. - I was onboarded remotely, and as someone who had been onboarding others remotely before this, let me tell you - they're doing it right! Smart job with the Trello board, it leaves the new hire in control but it's also a clear partnership.

      Cons

      This isn't a con for Propeller - more for the world - getting to know a company and new peers remotely just isn't as fun. It's also hard to learn two companies (when you go straight to a engagement after being hired).

      Pros

      Propeller as a firm does a great job of making decisions on behalf of the people. In general it’s very hard to appease everyone, but they do a pretty good job of getting there. Whether it be benefits, internal activities, or project opportunities, there’s a clear effort to make sure everyone remains happy.

      Cons

      No big concerns. Just looking forward to continued growth and project opportunities.

      Pros

      Employees have an opportunity grow their skills and broaden their industry experiences. Employees are trusted, encouraged to act like owners and given both the autonomy and support needed to do great work. The culture thrives on collaboration, diverse perspectives and a commitment to each other.

      Cons

      Organizationally, there are no "cons" that go un-checked or are not open for discussion. Employees are encouraged to ask questions and leaders operate transparently and authentically.

      Strong, Transparent, and Growing

      May 10, 2020 - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Speaking to my personal experience with Propeller: Leadership communication and transparency Expect and deliver high quality client engagements - some individual and some team-based, with leadership or peer support available and encouraged to work through challenges Very strong values and culture - everyone fits in, everyone can have a say if they want to contribute Proving why reputation is great during these uncertain times - proactive and thoughtful decisions made quickly to ensure employee and clients both are put in the best position possible. This has resulted in maintaining headcount and even adding headcount at clients where I've seen other firms cut out completely. Leadership balances the both the human and business sides of work life and seem to care about employees' growth.

      Cons

      Not always great diversity of client projects - most are interesting and challenging in their own way, but not all will feel sexy (which is true of most day to day work anyway).The company is working to diversify types of client engagements, but this will likely be an uphill battle until the economy recovers further.
