    Pros

    A lot of talented people work/ have worked for the company. The work environment is great and the people I work with are awesome.

    Cons

    Where do I start. Staff turnover is high which is to be expected in this industry however management are doing nothing to retain the talent that they have. Moral is low and it appears nobody really knows where they stand. Management and policies have changed so much that I not sure if the company will survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example and appreciate your staff.

    Pros

    New CEO, good news, even if he is bad, can't be worse than the previous one!
    The last one was a complete waste of time and money.
    It may be too late for us, but we can try to the end.

    Cons

    All the good people gone, some of the bad people are still around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up some of the bad management that is still with us. They "talk good" but can't deliver.
    Go back to our roots: Consulting.

    Pros

    Highly political with only people who socialize in a core group of employees getting promoted ahead of cycle - regardless of performance or benchmarks(Inconsistent review and promotion cycles). Lack of faith, trust and honesty for managers. If you're not in the inner circle, or buttering managers, you're growth stops and your career dies. Finally Promotion depended on whether you buttering your manager.
    Politics, Poor senior management, no appreciation, cost cutting, do have many policies but no one follow those policies, unfair appraisal system.

    Cons

    Total confusion in management
    Lots of politics at senior management level unfairness in project assignments
    Directionless approach
    Deliberate delay on distribution of bonuses and appraisals to retain and mislead employees
    Very incompetent HR, HR is a complete joke, HR is nonexistent
    All talk in the air, misleading employees
    Different rules and treatment to different teams
    NO stability
    Highly disorganized management team
    Group of highly dissatisfied employees
    Only Confusing People all Around
    People get paid for doing nothing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's bad for morale. Damage is so severe to employee morale!
    Need to wake up and understand their responsibilities. Need to be taught how to interact with employees.
    Please be honest about the company/team policies with the employees, each team has different rule and regulation

    Your staffing process is completely unfair and you better sort out all the internal politics, the good people are being treated unfairly by the seniors.

    Pros

    The variety and level of clients we work with is pretty amazing. Anything from a smaller company in a rural setting to a fortune 500 company right in NYC. Not only that, but there are healthcare companies, state agencies, banks, credit card companies, manufacturers, etc. The people area really intelligent and from all over, making for a (mostly) enjoyable experience. The work environment is awesome and something I wish more companies had. Gives you a good sense of freedom compared to the typical corporate structure.

    Cons

    Where to start on the cons. There is a definitive struggle to find a working strategy here. I think we all know we want to be innovative and product solutions in some way that harnesses data, big/small/disparate/whatever. Though we can't seem to get past fancy marketing and smoke/mirror tactics and simply explain the real value that we provide. I feel like we sell ourselves short of what we really do with trying to make it look like this magical machine that spits out insights. Nobody really knows what is going on, though it is hard to stay positive with how things are.

    Another review mentioned this, but while the variety of work is nice, the quality of project can vary greatly. Plus we're now in the spot with little room to move.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need more transparency and a clear/concise plan. Pick one and let us work towards it.

    Pros

    Flexible Timing, Come to office anytime - Leave office anytime, Work from home. They just want work, anyhow.

    Cons

    Politics, Poor senior management, no appreciation, cost cutting, do have many policies but no one follow those policies, unfair appraisal system. Employees who have joined straight from campus were sometime given work of data crunching which they do it for 6 months to 1 year keeping a hope and expectation that they will get a good quality work. No transparency is there as many employees doesn't even ave idea whats going in the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management should be approachable and flexible enough to do the changes, so that the employees in junior can come and share their common problems which they facing and accordingly changes should be implement.
