    I have been working at Solution Design Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    sdg does a great job trying to match the needs of their clients with the needs and skills of the consultants. There are tremendous personal and professional growth opportunities at sdg. The base benefits and salary are competitive with other consulting companies. There are ample opportunities to get involved with the sdg community beyond just work at the client. There are volunteer opportunities, company events,...

    Cons

    When business is slow, we may have to work on assignments that aren't a great fit. Sometimes that might mean a longer commute or working with technology that isn't our first choice. Fortunately, business has been good.

    Advice to Management

    There's not much advice I have that I haven't already given them. It's been a fun ride so far. Let's keep going.

    I have been working at Solution Design Group full-time

    Pros

    I've been with the company for 7+ years and I haven't regretted a single day. Really smart, fun bunch of people. Management goes out of their way to create a sense of community and treat its employees like family. Pay is very competetive and the numerous company gatherings are always a blast.

    Cons

    SDG is a consulting company and occasionally you will wind up with a gig that wouldn't have been your first choice. That said, I feel like they have my back and have never felt stranded at a client.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the focus on community, culture, and employee experience. Happy, engaged employees are crucial for the success of any company but particularly so in the consulting space.

    I have been working at Solution Design Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I love to create software. SDG let's me do just that. I have the opportunity to choose the clients I work for. I can be as involved in the company as I want. There are lots of opportunities to be involved with including presentations, clubs, volunteering, etc. The employees are highly regarded and well taken care of. If there is something I need, I just ask. The benefits are outstanding, but the people make it...

    Sometimes it seems as though the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

    I have been working at Solution Design Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been working for sdg for 4 years and loved every minute of it. These guys know software and know consulting. They take care of us very well so we can focus on taking care of our clients. It is like a big happy family. Meetings are so great with the positive energy from everyone sharing things with each other.

    Cons

    No cons that I can think of except that I wish I would have been working for them many years earlier!!! Everyone I have met and worked with has been a Rock Star!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. It is so nice to be able to come up and talk to any of the owners or management openly and know they really do care.

    Pros

    Actually do make their decisions around their core values - customers, employees, and community. They hire talented people that others want to work with.

    Cons

    Most of the work is done at the client. They try to take commutes into consideration, but timing wise, there are times where a commute may be longer than desired.

    I worked at Solution Design Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's consulting. They have free things like baseball games or food. They buy you lunch every few weeks. If you like volunteering or developer councils, they've got that. They like participation. They won't fire you between clients. You'll continue to get paid. This can be a pretty big plus if your skill goes out of style. They are upfront about company financial numbers. Rather than working directly for...

    Cons

    It's consulting. Complete with the "awesome folks" and the kool-aid. Work for any consulting company for a while and you'll know what I mean by kool-aid. Their folks are no better than any other shiny IT consulting firm, although on average they are better than the big staffing firms. They have a few horrible developers that made it through the screening process. They really push Liferay, because it's profitable...

    I have been working at Solution Design Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Passionate people to work with. Recruiting does an excellent job finding high level talent that want to see customers succeed. Culture, Community, and Clients is their focus. Fun company events every quarter or more. They pay Market or higher.

    Cons

    Office location is in Golden Valley and I live in south metro. Company is small enough to know everyone but it is consultings so client sites are all over the metro and not all the employees are as engaged to show up for company events so I don't get to meet everyone and it's growing fast.

    Advice to Management

    Put an office in the South Metro
