    I worked at ePartners (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent strategy and leadership team.

    Cons

    A lot of change and integration challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Pull the strategy through -- up and down organization.

    I worked at ePartners full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    ePartners was one of the first large roll-ups in the Microsoft Dynamics ecosystem and they did a great job of scooping up all the right companies.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, ePartners did a poor job of empowering the leaders and employees of the companies they acquired leading to the "A Players" leaving en masse. They tried to fix things through re-orgs and big ideas, but over time they just fell apart.

    Advice to Management

    Manage the business at every level. In a consulting company, success is about more than selling the next big project. Competent delivery and a happy consulting organization will sell more than dedicated closers any day.

    Pros

    The people were great and flexible work environment. Everyone came together to accomplish company goals

    Cons

    tight on money, but mainly due to the economy so not really ePartners fault.
    a lot of work with very little people to do it, so it was long hours although many of them could be done from home

    Advice to Management

    When offering promises stick to them, that is the only reason I left was due to promises never getting fulfilled.

    Pros

    industry standard pay, but no commission as consulting firm

    Cons

    Most of PM in ePartner don't know what is application. The worst PM I have seen in ERP consulting firms are from ePartner. Also don't know what Region office and manager related with me? Why not sell them. ePartner is truly re-organization in 2007-2009, but still can treat people better during laid-off. Now ePartner technical consultants become the backbone of other firms, don't ePartner feel happy with that?

    Advice to Management

    sell your district manager, think that you really need them?

    Sell

    Pros

    Honest helpful people when I worked there.

    Cons

    When they lay you off they won't tell you, they'll let you go on the spot and scort you out the door immediately. Very demeaning

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with dignity when you lay them off.

    Pros

    Progressive, growing company where each individual makes a noticable difference, not treated as "just an employee number."

    Cons

    not a lot of room for advancement in my department

    Advice to Management

    Recognize support ("non-reveunue generating" ) employees contribution to the company

    Pros

    Exposure to Microsoft and its channel partners, opportunities to work with one of the "top" partners in the Microsoft business solutions channel.

    Cons

    They don't provide any training, opportunities for advancement, opportunities to interact with other Microsoft partners, don't allow employees other than senior management to attend Microsoft events and that pretty much eliminates the reasons to work there in the first place. As far as being at a "top" partner goes, that's a title from ages past. Now they get virtually no respect from Microsoft and they've been massively contracting as a company. They've dropped about 1/3rd of their staff in the past year and about 25% of their geographic presence in the US. They've also lost almost all of their Dynamics AX practice. They're basically a Great Plains and Solomon VAR, particularly west of the Mississippi. They can't compete on the big deals up against the other national players like Tectura and Hitachi.

    Advice to Management

    None...they wouldn't hear it anyway! They're way to political for such a small (under $50M) company!

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

    Pros

    * Lots of great people over a number of regions
    * Generally if you need something in the way of equipment or software you could get it
    * Did I mention the great people?

    Cons

    * Sales people would say or do anything for a sale
    * Management is either lax or panicky, neither extreme is good

    Advice to Management

    Some of your regional directors/managers really need to go out the door. It feels too much like a "Good ole' boy" network. They are not in touch with their employees unless it's an iron first.

    Now some of your lower-level/mid-level managers were AWESOME... and they left. That should tell you something. Read their exit interviews.
