    Pros

    Employee Friendly COmpany. Walks the talk.

    Cons

    Too small to provide comprehensive growth opportunities. Heavy reliance on 1-2 people for final client engagement and deliverable. Unlikely to be sustainable should the situation change tomorrow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develope people and start delegating.

    Current Employee - Consultant in Florham Park, NJ (US)

    I have been working at Logical Design Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you thrive on challenges, enjoy working through knotty problems, and can leave your ego at the door, this is a good place to work. A lot of really smart (and funny!) people to collaborate with and learn from..

    Cons

    Deadlines can be really aggressive, and there's a tendency (IMHO) to complicate and over-think things. Also, most of the work is within the enterprise and behind firewalls, which can mean a lack of URLs to show off your work. At the same time, you get to engage with clients at a really high level and participate in often fascinating conversations around business strategy. Your work can have impact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow communication to be a bit freer and more open.

    Pros

    Most people are nice and willing to help.
    Compensation is reasonably good
    Nice office space
    Good work/life balance
    Stable work environment
    Decent client base

    Cons

    Antiquated work from home policy (forbidden)
    NOTHING happens without consultation with the CEO
    If you are not in the "inner circle", you don't count
    Lots of micromanagement
    There are no career opportunities
    Bring a dictionary to decode all the over used consultant speak

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up
    Trust your people
    Tone down the consultant speak

    I worked at Logical Design Solutions

    Pros

    The salary and benefits were good. Hours were normal. Good, stable client list. Interesting projects.

    Cons

    They're very set in their ways and not open to input. Lots of fires and too many chefs. Sometimes cold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bake in the appropriate amount time and money for projects. Nuture and grow your talent. Peer review projects.
