    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

    Pros

    It's a good short term project between jobs

    Cons

    Not a real company with sound growth strategy. They are riding the waive of letigation work which is done in a year. After that there is no future except layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Start being honest with yourself and employees.

    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!

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, snacks are provided.

    Cons

    NO ROOM FOR ADVANCEMENT IF YOU ARE A MINORTY. They pressure you to do work only for them to not have files for you to work on down the pipeline. No HR dept. pay is low but still have to pay for parking.

    Advice to Management

    Help promote growth and have upper management actually acknowledge employees instead of ignoring those beneath them if there not underwrites.

    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.
