Current Employee - Creative Director

I have been working at iQmetrix full-time

Pros

Allows people to craft their own path

Cons

People that need a more corporate hierarchical environment sometimes don't find their way around

Current Employee - Consultant

I have been working at Online Business Systems full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Reasonable benefits that have been getting better over the years, and an awesome Professional Development program. I haven't experienced any "political" or cultural toxicity during my time here... that seems to plague other companies, the overall culture here is great.

Cons

Most of the client-business relationship team (or business developers, or whatever they are called these days) seems to put 99% of their effort into the client part of the relationship, and seem to... put minimal effort in maintaining any kind of relationship with their "resources", i.e. the consultants working their contract. I have only had one that put reasonable effort in keeping regular contact with us consultants and actually organizing get-togethers which greatly helped maintain the team's mood and morale. For some, there may be a considerable barrier to advancing your career competency level. This involves a great effort in contributing to the social culture of the company. For example, it may not be enough that you are highly skilled in your area of expertise and that you have great consulting skills; you must also be able to regularly contribute effort and content directly into the company's internal and external social groups, and maintain your internal networks and relationships with other employees. This is great for many people, but there may be many others where this could be a hinderance to be successful in your career here.

Advice to Management

Guide the business developers to follow the same three-legged stool principle (healthy/happy company, employees, and clients) that the executive management follows, as they are another important part... in ensuring the overall health of the company, clients, and fellow employees. Encourage employees to contribute to the internal and external culture of the company, but don't make it a requirement to advance your career here.
