    I worked at Workforce Insight full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent project management and professional and technical services. Top notch technical support for consultants. Very positive culture, great co-workers, and remote work situation provides good work/life flexibility.

    Cons

    Not for those who work better in face-to-face environment. A little slow on transferring funds to retirement accounts (but within requirements).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Many sincere and effective improvements with business processes and benefits going on.

    Pros

    - Non-competitive processes for advancement. If you show interest in the next level, they give you the opportunity.
    - Some stressful days for sure but not too much pressure to deliver tangible results. There's a lot of trust that you'll get there.
    - AMAZING work/life balance. Although the PTO policy is about average, you can decide how many hours you work and when you work them. Kind of like an approach you'd expect if we were run by the guy that wrote "the 4 hour work week"

    Cons

    - Get put in tough situations. Teams you manage push back on lousy pay and no bonuses, but then I have to deal with that too.
    - Hard to understand all the different capabilities and service offerings, especially the non technology stuff
    - With a remote environment, there are pros and cons. One downside is not actually seeing the people you meet with. There was a great idea to have all remote meetings done with webcam but people only did it if there boss cared and was in the meeting

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to develop training for all levels of the organization, including delivery leadership. Maybe some sessions on empowering team members, consulting skills, and how to attract and retain talent.

    Don't be afraid to flex up or down with staffing. If someone's on the bench and no work coming, then we might make a hard decision. It is what it is with consulting. The more costs we save, the easier it will to be profitable again.

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

    Pros

    True team environment - Everyone I've worked with seems to really be willing to do whatever it takes to get projects across the finish line and to deliver high quality.
    Work from home - It definitely takes some getting used to but is a nice to have. Can feel isolated sometimes, but steps are being taken to try to get folks engaged.
    Company Culture - The nature of client consulting can have peaks and valleys, but WFI seems to really value balance. That's appreciated.

    Cons

    Wishing for more communication on company direction and financials. Sometimes, the presentations feel hollow or misleading.
    Incentive and bonus targets could use some revisions. Not sure when the profit sharing goals were last met.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to right the ship. Sales seems to be getting better so stay focused on bolstering the pipeline and improving our revenue picture. The same is true for talent retention.

    Pros

    Our market opportunity is huge, largely due to the fact that we have extremely talented, hard-working employees at all levels of the company. I'm proud to be a part of a company that our customers appreciate as much as they do.

    Cons

    Working remotely is not for everyone. You have to be self-driven and make an attempt to connect with others. Most people are great at taking advantage of this but not all.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on career development and developing managers.

    Pros

    Some good people there. Some of the team are genuine and great to work with. Company has withstood some very hard times last couple years.

    Cons

    Exec team are dishonest and disloyal. Tough group to work for. They like to do whatever it takes to look good to investors but could give a crap about their team.

    Advice to Management

    Not going to waste my time here. They are too arrogant to listen

    Pros

    Great delivery team with top notch professionals. There is a great sense of urgency to ensure every customer is taken care of. There isn't a better consulting company in our space that competes with WFI's culture and capabilities.

    Cons

    As with many remote companies, communication can be lacking. Keep all employees informed regarding the strategic direction of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to keep employees feeling important and keep the ones that are critical to the company.

    Pros

    Workforce Insight has done a tremendous job turning the company around from folks leaving to folks not only staying but being very happy they have. They are a transparent employer who truly values their workforce.

    Cons

    Workforce Insight needs to do a better job at training and developing their workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Build a stellar Training & Development team.

    Pros

    Impressive office, generous reimbursement, tech savvy IT staff, meh+ compensation, decent wifi. CEO seems like a decent bloke. Company is growing. Liberal work-from-home policy.

    Cons

    Managers will stand behind you - it's easier to stab you in the back that way. Company is extremely insistent on a cultlike devotion to extracurriculars and "relationship building" among employees. Managers and coworkers use Skype and texts to chin wag about employees perceived as being "other" and "aloof" - while the employee is in the room with them!. Feedback from managers is nonexistent until gobsmacked at termination meeting. Excessive office politics and backbiting. Managers are contemptuous and short with employees who ask questions then wonder why employees quit asking questions. Wonky software. Snoopy managers. Lousy selection of K-cup coffee pods, too.

    Advice to Management

    Stop inbreeding and embrace some diversity. Get to know your employees. Maybe a little training would be nice? How about mentoring new employees instead of making them feel inadequate?

    I worked at Workforce Insight full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company gives a good first impression. Everyone is remote except a few in Denver. 401k benefit is great.

    Cons

    You must have worked with the training manager in the past or will not succeed. Poor onboarding/no actual training make for a strange experience. Meeting in Denver was a series of client calls interspersed with some training. Complains that people don't want to include training in proposals, but may not want to work with that manager. She complains about their largest client who contracts WFI on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Onboarding via Skype via 2 solid days of back to back calls is not effective. Ineffective training in the training department is particularly odd. Change Enablement is overbooked because she does a great job and is kind.

    Pros

    The company has a new CEO which has great ideas to help grow the business. The flexibility and the ability to work remotely helps balance work and personal life.

    Cons

    There has been quite the turnover in the last few years. Hoping with the new CEO this will change.
