    Pros

    SkillStorm provides a supportive work environment and allows their employees to grow with the company. As the company grows, there are opportunities for employees to experience different aspects of the company, change teams if they desire, and to be promoted. Overall, SkillStorm invests in their employees and wants the best for them.

    Cons

    The nature of the work can be high stress, but having co-workers you enjoy working with makes it manageable.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide opportunities for new employees to grow with the company!

    I have been working at SkillStorm full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Happy and upbeat company culture that loves celebrating everything from birthdays, to performance, and holidays (and not just main stream).
    - Very understanding and flexible management that works with you as you start and throughout. They also regularly provide feedback.
    - They genuinely seem happy to have you as an employee

    Cons

    - Most employees are contractors and their employment is dependent on the company they are contracted to. There have been times with almost no notice, employees have been let go due to their contracted company cancelling the job. (I have heard that Skillstorm will try and work with the employee to find them another contract.)
    - Okay healthcare plan, but expensive for anything besides employee only health.
    - Hiring process wasn't very clear. There are a lot of moving parts and the time frame is too murky. I was given a start date, so I moved (to a new state) to accommodate that date, and the day before they told me, they weren't ready. I was out of work for a week because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the upbeat company culture and valuing your employees work, because it helps off set the stress of being a contractor. Be more transparent on start dates and hiring time frame. More importantly, don't give a start date until the date is certain.

    Pros

    Culture, Co-workers, Clients, Career Growth, Commitment to both internal and external employees.

    Cons

    The road to achievement is not for the faint of heart. Not everyone is going to be a fit long term and unfortunately that means sometimes you may lose "good" people along that journey.

    Pros

    Skillstorm puts the employee first. It nice to work for a company that also serves as an advocate.

    Cons

    Any thing that I could add to this wouldn’t be a direct result of Skillstorm, but rather an editorial of IT in a fast pace environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the quality of employees up, and the rewards will continue.

    Pros

    Although this is not a large consulting firm Skillstorm has the vision and capability to hire and bring in exceptional people with above-average skills and talent. Its recruiters are among the mort experienced in seeing talent, then pursue it.

    Cons

    One disadvantage with this company, like many others, is in the area of Health Insurance. Affordable health insurance, among other health benefits, have been challenging for companies to offer lower deductible plans that employees can afford and utilize.

    I have been working at SkillStorm full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I recently went through the on-boarding process here at SkillStorm and have nothing but positive things to say about the experience. I felt like I could be fully transparent about what I was looking for (in terms of career growth and company culture). I was engaged by several different levels of leadership and asked to voice any questions or concerns I might have. Since starting, just a few weeks ago, I learned quickly that all the positive things I heard about the company were true. SkillStorm has been nothing short of fantastic. I am confident this will be the company I represent for the foreseeable future.

    Cons

    Up to this point, I have none to list.

    Pros

    Passionate environment that offers opportunity along with the tools to learn, grow, and be successful. Simply put, the company loves "winning". Great culture and team. Strong workplace engagement.

    Cons

    As with most roles that offer commission, you must be willing to put in the time and effort in order to be successful. It is a fast-paced company that continues to change and improve over time, which is a good thing, but can be challenging for individuals that are not comfortable in that kind of environment.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the transparency and openness of the leadership team. Management is very approachable and willing to listen to concerns, suggestions, or recommendations that may improve the company.
