    Pros

    This is a consulting agency, so most get the opportunity to work on a myriad of projects. As a result, one can pick up a lot of different skill-sets along the way. Can get busy at times, but overall the work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    Acquired by a large company (Alliance Data Systems / Epsilon), which has led to a lot of recent turnover.

    Pros

    Good clients, good process, good learning opportunity, good co-workers. I learned so much in the time I was at SolutionSet due to the demands of the projects I was working on.

    Cons

    Acquisition by Epsilon changed the tone of the company to a much larger corporate one. The company update meetings have become just reviews of company financials and are totally impersonal.

    Lot of interesting projects

    Pros

    Different clients means different technical problems to solve. Lots of learning of new technologies and applying on the job. My reporting chain really pushed for a quality 40 hours a week and that's it. So good work life balance there.

    Cons

    You are creating stuff for another company. Once the contract is done, the thing you created is taken away by the client and sometimes destroyed.
