    I have been working at Systems Evolution full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I love the local work model and the opportunity for ownership and decision making. The energy and collaboration between SEI colleagues is very motivating. Places I've worked before have been much more competitive as people were trying to make a good impression on leadership and move up or jockeying for position, here we are all pulling together as a team. It's an ideal work situation being able to do the consulting work...

    Cons

    With a small (but growing!) local office team working 100% onsite at different clients, it requires effort to stay engaged and connected with those on other clients (but with leadership so committed to providing these opportunities, consultants just have to take advantage of them)

    Advice to Management

    Continued focus on growing both the client and consultant base to expand opportunities for collaboration and growth in different industries.

    Pros

    Great team and fun culture - I love the people I work with. SEI does well in recruiting consultants who are talented, experienced, and fun to socialize with. Collaboration - SEI is the best I've seen when it comes to collaboration. Individual consultants aren't expected to have all the answers. We have a nationwide team of 250+ consultants, a tool to help us tap into that knowledge base, and a culture that supports...

    Cons

    The recruiting process is long and drawn out. It requires a lot of patience from all parties involved. Health benefits are OK. They’re standard for a mid-sized company but I came from a much larger consulting firm and enjoyed better health benefits there. If you don't want to do client delivery full-time, this is not the place for you. All levels of consultants, from Staff to Principal, are focused on delivery...

    Advice to Management

    Our culture, people, and relationships with our clients are the most important aspects of our business. Continue to maintain that perspective as we grow.

    Great coworkers, flat model, employee owned, challenging engagements, local. Awesome collaboration.

    Cons

    I have been working at Systems Evolution full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I initially became interested in SEI when I decided to get back into Consulting. I'd been in industry for a couple years and missed the fulfillment I got from making a real difference for my Clients. Through the interview process, I got to meet the entire Dallas team & was convinced that this was the right place for me. I'm having a great time at SEI and have enjoyed taking part in growing our Dallas presence....

    Cons

    I have to agree with other reviews that describe SEI as an 'all hands on deck' environment. There is definitely an entrepreneurial / startup feel and you have to be comfortable with the associated ambiguity / willing to roll your sleeves up to get the job done. That said, all of this was clearly laid out & explained throughout the interview process. I came in knowing what would be required and have embraced it...

    I have been working at Systems Evolution full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Systems Evolution's model of local offices with a strong culture creates the ultimate family atmosphere. As a flat organization - where hierarchies truly do not exist - team members are encouraged to lean in on one another, in both their personal and professional lives. The atmosphere of collaboration created by the employee-ownership model provides an excellent example of how a consulting company should operate.

    Cons

    In a small office, local model team members are asked to wear multiple hats. This includes business development, recruiting and delivery. While I find this exciting, it can be overwhelming for some.

    Pros

    Core values are spot on, love the collaboration, the variety of work and the employee ownership model!

    Cons

    Not the place to work if titles and ladder climbing are important to you - if you love the employee owner model it's a wonderful company.

    I worked at Systems Evolution full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I was a proud SEI consultant for 7+ years. I was no stranger to consulting prior to joining and quickly realized that SEI was a special place. Consultants are very fairly compensated, offered opportunities to engage / help drive the business and have a good work/life balance. Like most things in life, you get out of SEI what you put into it. It's not a place for those looking to punch-in and punch-out. It's entrepreneurial...

    I have been working at Systems Evolution full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A couple weeks ago my wife and I found out that our 11 year old dog has a terminal illness and will not be with us much longer. Our CEO, Bill, heard about our situation and personally reached out to me to check on us. He then offered to pay for our family to have pictures professionally made. This really touched my family and is why SEI is more than a job, more than a career. It is truly a family.

    Cons

    Choosing to join SEI has been the most rewarding and challenging career move I have made. It takes a lot of work to help grow a business but knowing we are all focused on the same goal is refreshing.

    Pros

    Unlimited Opportunity! Systems Evolution Phoenix is a place I feel like all team members have a voice and all voices are equal. It is not often you find a company that understands how to grow, innovates and understands work-life balance. I am very thankful SEI reached out to me and knew who I was before even speaking with them on the phone. From my first of over seven interviews through today, I genuinely do feel like...

    The hiring process can become a bit extensive for those looking to hire on with a consulting firm quickly. The wait, however, is more than worth it!

    I worked at Systems Evolution full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Culture is a priority. Having previously worked for a bank and now a larger consulting firm, it's clear that SEI is doing something right by ensuring the people they employ are decent human beings. It's difficult to find a company that hires for substance and not numbers, especially in the consulting world. The people are what makes SEI a great place to work and a company I wish I hadn't had to leave. -At a larger company,...

    Cons

    -It can be messy. SEI is small and that means it's all hands on deck and everyone is expected to help out where they can. If you like a lot of structure and have a "that's not my job" attitude - you won't be happy here. -Pay was okay.. not great (benefits were good). For me, the culture makes up for the lower salary.

    Advice to Management

    Money and growth is nothing if you have to sacrifice culture and your people. Don't forget what makes SEI special.
