      The pay is competitive. The schedule is flexible, with great PTO benefits. Work environment is positive and supporting.


      Insurance premiums are a bit high, but coverage is decent.

      1. 2.0
        Sep 28, 2023
        Associate Project Manager
        Current Employee, more than 8 years
        CEO Approval
        Business Outlook


        Work-life balance, interesting projects, good clients, amazing coworkers, 12 weeks of paid family leave, benefits package, stock program, plenty of work backlog.


        Not agressive enough with hiring staff to support the team. ZERO internal equity with pay. New hires require large compensation packages while existing, committed employees (including management) are promised compensation adjustments due to a market review process and given negligible adjustments. As a supervisor, we were given talking points for the 2023 rate review period of how to explain to employees that wages are NOT tied to inflation and they should be happy with what is provided. I'm aware of other comparable companies giving multiple inflation adjustments to all employees regardless of position as opposed to trying to convince employees it's not a factor. There is a lot of discussion around retention but no real efforts to fix the issue.
