    I worked at Sdgc (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great team members to work with if you understand their dynamics
    Always hungry to do more and truly nimble when it comes to client interactions and delivery.
    'Client-centric'

    Cons

    Too many internal clashes leading to a confused employee.
    Too many changes within the organization with not enough time to react - which is common in every organization.

    Advice to Management

    SDGC has few very talented people and if they're placed at the right profiles, can envision faster and sustainable growth. Both senior management & the CEO himself are very receptive, consultative and visionary - but the same has to flow through the organization to witness a much better growth curve.

    Pros

    Depending on the client you will be working with, you may gain a valuable experience.
    As long as you are doing your job and keep the customer happy - you are fine, actually extremely valued
    Many were well taken care of here, ignore the poor reviews, you get a treatment here that not many other consulting companies would provide.

    Cons

    Given that in most cases you are a consultant here, there is not much of a career growth, however you will still get promoted technically
    The remote team locations may create controversies
    You will face politics

    Advice to Management

    Build a better culture based on technical goals, customer satisfaction, team spirit. It should be all about work and invention, politics should not be tolerated. There are quite a few "squeaky wheels" who get a better treatment while a great quiet talent gets ignored.

    "Private Family Concern - Emotional Exploitation"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    1. You will get an oppurtunity to work with people who work there a** off and in the process learn
    2. The culture is to pick up everything is on your own - which cuts both ways. One way you learn a lot while trying to figure things out on the other hand there is no investment in training and you will waste a lot of your time.

    Cons

    1. No path for career progression
    2. No work life balance
    3. Small firm run by hotheaded owner - who when suits him verbally treats you as a family member emotionally exploiting to work donkey hours with no monetary compensation
    4. Eye opener for people let go without any severance - zero!
    5. No structure around what projects need to be taken and how to train people. Anything that comes up is thrown at people setting them up for failure and putting in donkey hours.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and dont eat more than what you can chew. Take care of your employees and stop exploiting them emotionally only to throw them in cold water later. This is short sighted and will only come back to harm you.
