    I have been working at Sila Solutions Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Sila Solutions Group has provided me consistent career growth and opportunity over the years due to the unique and positive culture that has been cultivated at the company. The leadership at Sila puts people first and care about each and every employees career path and growth.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons while working at Sila. The company has provided me a multitude of opportunities to grow professionally while also enabling me to have a work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to put people first. The company culture is not one that you could find elsewhere in the industry.

    I have been working at Sila Solutions Group (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have never come across a company that has such a people-first culture as Sila - particularly one that lives by their words as Sila does. The amount of experience you can get and potential growth is a reason alone why Sila is so great - the people, peers, and leadership add even more to it's appeal to me.

    Cons

    It's hard to come up with cons for Sila - the experience has been so positive.

    Advice to Management

    Continue living the people-first approach and working towards increased transparency

    I have been working at Sila Solutions Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Sila Solutions Group is a small but rapidly growing consulting company that employs some of the best professionals I have ever had the pleasure of working with. In addition to the collaborative work environment, which allows every team member at Sila to learn and experience the various areas within the company, the CSLs, Managing Directors and Co-Founders go out of their way to ensure that every member of Sila feels comfortable and secure in their position within the company. If there is something that you need or that you are struggling with, whether it is work related or not, Sila's team will do anything to assist you at the drop of a hat.

    There is no such thing as a perfect company, but after working in a multitude of work environments, I can safely say that Sila is the best I have experienced.

    Cons

    The office is very quiet due to many of the Sila team members being on client sites, therefore the environment tends to feel pretty empty. However, company culture and weekly meetings make up for the quiet and slow days.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow and inspire your younger employees so that they may lead by example and inspire future generations at Sila.

    Pros

    * Great co-workers
    * Great work life balance
    * Ample work space in a nice building and office park
    * Lots of social and charity activities
    * Interesting work

    Cons

    * No career path for non PMP employees
    * Employees receive very little feedback from management
    * Actual assignments may not live up to expectations from interview
    * Management is not transparent
    * Work force could use more diversity

    Advice to Management

    * Thank you for not hiring people difficult to work with
    * Although I personally prefer a flat organizational structure, I hear complaints that people would like a job title, more feedback, and advancement opportunities
    * I would take the advice from other reviews seriously because they are spot on

    I have been working at Sila Solutions Group full-time

    Pros

    Sila Solutions Group is a great company that has generous benefits. The office is a fun environment and the company frequently hosts events for employees and their family.

    Cons

    Some employees spend very little time in the office and most consultants have very little variety in projects and clients.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to continue to provide more opportunities for growth and advancement for a non-management track.

    I have been working at Sila Solutions Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture, Smart coworkers who genuinely care about each other and never hesitate to lend a hand. High standards, but not a lot of ego. Plenty of opportunities for learning. Work/life balance clearly valued, which is rare for a consulting firm. Management is approachable and transparent.

    Cons

    Not a lot of structure. The company has grown quickly and hasn't yet developed many processes or policies. Could be considered a pro or a con, depending on your comfort with ambiguity, but if you're looking for a fixed set of job responsibilities or a well-defined career track, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow thoughtfully. Your careful selection of both employees and clients makes all the difference.

    I worked at Sila Solutions Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Sila strives to, and succeeds at, creating a vibrant company culture that is full of opportunity for growth. They put extraordinary effort into providing means to improve your skills and knowledge, offering various certification training in house and access to online learning for a wider array of subjects. They encourage and support your growth while creating a family-like feel. Your personal drive is your only limiting factor.

    Cons

    The only downside that I experienced while at Sila was the fact that I had to move on. I would have happily stayed for many more years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!
