    I have been working at The Oakleaf Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a fast growing company with over 50 people. It's now a full fledge consulting firm where hiring is occuring weekly due to the great work that is going on. I'm new and started recently and this is what my pulse of the firm is now.

    Management can be quite busy but they try hard and are dedicated to improvement. this firm has a lot of growth and opportunities ahead of it and if you like a small company growing to a mid-size feel and like to tackle challenges and help them figure out opportunities then you will be in a great place.

    Cons

    I can understand the feeling others have that it is a "staffing firm" But hey, it's a small company that's working real hard to grow and is.

    If you like the big corporation feel with all the departments and bureacracy, this type of environment may not be for you

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work in winning more contracts and opportunities but continue to focus on employee engagement and development.

    I have been working at The Oakleaf Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule.
    Good pay.
    Good benefits.
    Management team is working hard to improve processes, security and tools we use.
    Great co-workers.
    Winning new projects really diversifying the business mode.

    Cons

    Need to work on planning for the future better.
    Going to need a bigger office soon, my office is getting crowded.
    Some dead weight on the senior management team.

    Advice to Management

    Seems like a lot of good things are going on within the company, start planning now. As you grow bigger more and more support will need to come from senior management, get some real managers in there.

    I have been working at The Oakleaf Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    With Chris Milner at the helm, I think The Oakleaf Group is a great company to work for, with a lot of solid clients and good prospects, innovative and challenging projects, a stable delivery platform, and most important, a commitment to making sure their employees are challenged and rewarded and that their clients are thrilled. The smart, hard-working and dedicated team has grown dramatically, and is continuing to do grow, so there are a lot of opportunities. The benefits are excellent, and compensation is generous.

    Cons

    You can’t have rapid growth without growing pains, but they’ve managed them well, stayed focused and learned from their mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    As The Oakleaf Group grows in terms of both employees and revenue, continue to anticipate pitfalls and be as proactive as possible. And continue to keep the lines of communication open to all levels of employees: the all-company Holiday party was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate 10 successful years and reflect on successes, so maybe consider having all-company meetings quarterly, addressing both successes and challenges. Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at The Oakleaf Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very professional company; dedicated to providing a quality product to their clients. One of the best companies I've worked for in 30 years of the banking/financial analysis industry. Dedicated to their employees and provide a positive work environment. They welcome feedback. They have high standards but that allows management to produce quality work and obtain new clients.

    Cons

    Working remotely is wonderful for my family and lifestyle but I've exchanged emails and phone calls with many colleagues, it would be nice to meet them someday.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is very good, a few occasional blackouts for brief periods

    I have been working at The Oakleaf Group full-time

    Pros

    Growing company. They've almost doubled since I joined.
    A lot of opportunity for learning and growth for high performers.
    Flexible schedules and good PTO.
    Pay above market rate for most roles.
    Benefits improve every year.
    CEO is solid, ethical, and involved.
    Sr. Management seem to care about their people.
    Things seem to steadily improve.

    Cons

    They're experiencing some of the pains of a growing company. They just added a dedicated HR director, so it will hopefully improve.
    Overall company communication could be a bit better.
    Various divisions don't mix

    Advice to Management

    Focus on establishing the culture you want, now. It gets harder to do so as you grow.
    Continue to organize and establish scalable processes where you know they're lacking.
    Communicate with your employees more, so they know what's going on.
    Delegate if you're overwhelmed. There are gems in your staff who can step up if given the chance.
    Do more company mixers so all sides of the company get to meet.
