    I have been working at UDig full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    UDig is by far one of the best places that I have worked at. The management hierarchy is very flat and there is absolutely no micromanagement. You have the ability to work on some really cutting edge projects as well. UDig is a place to work if you want to learn other languages, new technologies, and help implement them into a business solution. UDig is also a growing company which allows people to help mold and shape the company into something truly amazing.

    Cons

    Currently our one location is running out of space, but this will be solved in the fall when we move into our new larger location.

    Advice to Management

    There's nothing that I can think of. The management does a good job being as transparent and open to the rest of the company as they can.

    I have been working at UDig full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, good clients, fun environment

    Cons

    UDig is struggling to become a player in the mid-atlantic consulting market. At this point, will take almost any work, even if it's not a great fit for their consultants' skill sets.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and up front with employees about direction of the company, especially as you begin to try to get everyone on the same page as far as compensation, bonus structure, etc.

    I have been working at UDig full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked and interviewed at all kinds of places in RVA. UDig is one of the few places that combines the small team culture while working on big time projects effectively. The Studio is an awesome place to come to every day. Everyone is pretty open and honest, there's always exciting work, and if you ever need help with something you can tap on a shoulder and get an answer. We all have standing desks, given the freedom to work with no micromanagement, and the projects are organized brought together with an enterprise mentality - meaning you are always on a team and never on an island.

    Cons

    A lot of the bugs got worked out in the past couple years from transitioning to a consulting agency. The only con right now is that there's no more room in our Studio, but that's being solved with the CEO buying a building, gutting it, and renovating it.

    Advice to Management

    Make that new office building awesome, with some phone booth and smaller offices.

    Pros

    Ability to impact and mold the organization as they solidify the transition into project based consulting. Leadership team highly approachable about feedback and welcoming to betterment and change.

    Cons

    Still completely figuring out their new voice. Part of the company is all on board with the changes and the other part is stuck in their ways and more resistant to the changes happening around them. Haven't started profiting heavily from their new work so most employees are underpaid for the value they bring to the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the value of your employees by investing in them financially AND culturally.

    Pros

    UDig pushes each and every person to be the best they can be. You are highly compensated and rewarded for the work that you do. It's a performance based environment, as sales organizations are, but UDig provides you with all the tools and support to be successful. Turnover is inevitable in a sales organization, however, UDig focuses on working as a team. We problem solved together. Leadership invests their time and energy into making UDig not only a great place to work, but also a leader in the industry. It's a reputable company that is respected in the consulting industry. At the end of the day, UDig ALWAYS does what's best for the customer. Integrity at it's finest. If you give 100% to the company, they will give 110% in return.

    Cons

    As in most business, large or small, change is a constant. UDig is ever evolving so if you like structure and process, it is not the environment for you.
    Lack of growth opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Rely on those who are in the weeds, grinding day after day, for advice on how to keep moral high, process improvements, and ideas in general on always making UDig a great place to work! If ideas are given, make sure they are followed through with. Hold each other accountable.
