    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Solution Design Group full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    You gain a good sense of belonging (which is hard to do for a consulting company) as a result of the fact that you are valued. Company functions, community outreach, resource management all make you feel like you are part of something truly special. Been here for almost 13 years and have really valued my experience. Looking forward to many more years.

    Cons

    Nothing to add for cons

    I have been working at Solution Design Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    There are a lot of pros about working at sdg! Everyone works hard to provide a great work experience and it shows. They have core values and try to always do what is right by them. We are also an ESOP and 100% owned by our employees and that means that everyone has a reason to do their best and give 200%. I've had a better work/life balance here and everyone seems to always be checking on me to see how I am doing, in...

    Cons

    Not really a con. BUT - there are so many fun and cool things to be a part of that sometimes I feel overwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    I'm being really picky here. While the ESOP is a great benefit, I would like to see the 401k match come back (even though I understand why we suspended it to start the ESOP). I would like to hear more business information at the company meetings and I would like to see them be a little more concise.

    Thank you for the great feedback! We love hearing that you are enjoying your work experience and value your coworkers. As you now know, we announced at our last company meeting that we are bringing back the 401k match for 2020.

    I have been working at Solution Design Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I can't imagine a consulting company with a better culture and work/life balance than sdg. Our consultants are scattered across the metro, yet we find ways to connect and have fun. If you're looking to engage with other consultants, sdg is the place for you. A small sample of events our communities host: whiskey tasting, agile breakfast club, book club, brewmasters, poker night, sdg podcasts, etc. sdg employs...

    Advice to Management

    Continue hiring folks who live sdg's core values. Our communities make sdg special, and that's due to hiring the right personalities. Talent alone isn't enough. In other words, change nothing. Keep it up!

    Pros

    sdg consistently works towards three core values. They treat all employees with respect and are treated as valued members of the team. Educational opportunities are available to those interested and assisting the community is important.

    Cons

    There are many opportunities to be involved in different committees and/or social events, however, if you are not willing to attend events it may be hard to feel connected with sdg while at a placement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Solution Design Group full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is next to none. Always has created opportunity for growth. Clients love working with our consultants. Great success story. Always giving and helping in the community.

    Cons

    Company has so many events and gathering that it can be overwhelming if you try to make it to every event. I guess this creates different things for almost anyone's interest.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing. It's working.

          I worked at Solution Design Group full-time

          Pros

          Nice after hours events and social activities.

          Cons

          The company name is a misnomer, there is very little design or solution involved, it is a pure staff augmentation company. When the client is not ready for you, the account managers expect you to twiddle your thumbs at an empty desk and generate revenue. This company is a continuation of the Born consulting hypocrisy. The corporate office has a great band called ‘The Thought Police’. Stop by and admire the HR department’s...

          I have been working at Solution Design Group full-time for more than 6 years

          Pros

          The company actually cares about its employees. Many great out-of-work activities. Bench pay removes job anxiety, although I've never actually needed it. Resource managers are involved with you after placement at a client.

          Cons

          Most employees are consultants, so if you want to stay in one place, this isn't it.

          Pros

          I've never worked with such a great group of talented, hardworking, fun people. Frequent company events - baseball games, fun runs, brewing takeovers - foster an amazing sense camaraderie and belonging. Managements decisions are guided almost entirely by the companies core values. A perfect example of this was the founders transitioning the company to an ESOP instead of selling outright. They truly put the employees...

          Cons

          It's consulting so you can/will end up at some challenging clients.
