    I worked at Catapult Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Small company, ample opportunity to have one-on-one interactions with management. Friendly employees and counterparts.

    Cons

    Having been with Catapult for several years, I noticed a few things - Catapult Austin is the nexus for this company, much as Redmond is for Microsoft. If you don't happen to belong to that office, you don't experience the company in the same manner. From camaraderie to benefits, the focus was still on Austin, even when out-performed by other offices. In the other markets, a lot of the consulting work tended to work...

    Advice to Management

    During my tenure, I saw talent grow, develop, then leave - while this happens in all companies, the sheer volume of high-end talent leaving was quite alarming. Aside from a few stalwart people who continue with the company regardless, ask (and then truly listen - a real problem from mid-management levels) how you might better engage and more importantly retain talent. My time there, I felt like I was in a holding pattern,...

    I worked at Catapult Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not difficult projects, good exposure to consulting and helping solve business problems

    Cons

    Sales department/people run the company. They are looked at as the heros, given all the credit and nothing is their fault.

    Pros

    I am so grateful to work with this company and their fantastic employees. I work with highly intelligent people who care about me in both a personal and professional capacity. I have learned more working for Catapult than anywhere else. We have fun, work hard and truly care about each other and our clients!

    Cons

    401k could be better but the executive team has taken steps to improve it

    Pros

    There are a lot of great things to say about Catapult. But if I boil it all down to what makes me really enjoy my job, and what really makes the company great, its the people I get to work with day in and day out. Simply stellar technical and business talent who believe in giving our clients their very best. It's humbling really, and I am blessed to be a part of such an amazing team.

    Cons

    For me, I have opinions, ideas, suggestions for improvements, but nothing I would call a "con".

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

    Pros

    This company truly stands behind their brand promises with clients and with their employees. I've never worked for a company that actually value their employees opinions and feedback. They also highly recommend continue education, even include an in-depth training database, to further your career path. Catapult Culture is contagious and is visible from the top down.

    Cons

    The Phoenix office still feels like a start up office even though it's been established for 6 years.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback! I'm glad to see that no matter where the Catapult office is located, our culture stands strong. It's an exciting time for Phoenix as we head into 2019. With the increased sales presence and work we've closed recently, we will ...

    I have been working at Catapult Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Challenging work, good pay, incredibly strong team mentality, managers allow autonomy without letting things go off the rails. Frequent and well-planned team building activities and events, and a culture that's cool enough to not feel corporate, but not so hipster-y that we all need mustache wax and scarves... ;)

    Cons

    At times you're going to feel like you're alone against a client or a situation, and if you don't force yourself to reach out for help you will be. Oh, and the 401k match is a joke. I guess there has to be one hard negative!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, shoot high, and encourage us to follow. Oh, and keep Catapult fun... there's no sense in making money hand-over-fist if you're doing it by selling your soul, and our soul is fun!
