    Pros

    Over the past few years the company has made a lot of changes to ensure the wellbeing and fair value of staff. Especially during COVID, I personally felt that I was looked after and during these uncertain times all employees were briefed on a regular basis on how the company was doing. We have recently been given the option to be permanent home workers, a recent pay review, yearly bonus as well some personal thank you gifts to name just a few of the perks and benefits we receive. Nobody is perfect, but speaking from experience, the company does listen and is rewarding staff who follow its values and provides excellent service to its partners.

    Cons

    A few restructures over the past years where we have lost some talented staff, and have made some employees nervous about the future, however these difficult decisions have put TSG in strong financial position for the future and it seems that as a business it is more settled, hopefully without the need for further restructures.

    Pros

    Awesome environment of people to work with. Very team-oriented, and everybody wants each other to succeed. I would absolutely recommend this company for anybody looking to be a web developer with a great team.

    Cons

    Just got bought out a year or so ago, so the atmosphere may have changed a bit.

    A tight knit company, a great place to start a career

    Oct 29, 2020 - IT Project Manager & Solutions Engineer in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Customers in a wide range of industries offers many opportunities - Front end and back end technology stacks gives everyone an avenue where they can shine - Opportunities to taken on major roles on projects can come quickly if you ask for more responsibility. Much quicker than in most other firms - Great culture can make even tough client work enjoyable

    Cons

    - Fast track to project management is not everyone's cup of tea. Amount of development diminishes after 1.5-2 years.

    Good Culture - Bad Technology

    May 17, 2020 - Web/Systems Analyst in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Culture and work/life balance are fantastic - hiring in with a class of peers made this a fun place to be socially. - High performers are given a fair amount of autonomy quickly. - Year over year raises are a generous percentage. - You can get paid overtime (if your project has budget for it).

    Cons

    - Compensation is below market rate for quality engineers. - Time with the company is weighted far more than performance. - Codebase is low quality, you will spend more time navigating enormous amounts of technical debt than you will writing code, which will hurt your ability to learn solid engineering principles. - Outdated tech stack - none of the three major front-end frameworks are used, nor is the most popular VCS. This will affect your ability to market yourself in the industry. - Zero emphasis on CI/CD, you will do code deployments manually, a tedious and error prone process which takes time away from writing (and learning how to write) higher quality code. - Unit tests are so tightly coupled to implementation that they are not useful. - You will not be rewarded for taking initiative to refactor or improve the stack. The emphasis is on implementing only the absolute minimum needed for enhancements. In summary, the technical environment here is brittle and promotes development patterns that are not industry standard. You can learn more, use better tech, and get paid more elsewhere.

    Decent Start

    Dec 19, 2019 - Systems Analyst/Web Developer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Casual dress, open office, work life balance

    Cons

    - Low pay compared to other places - Loyalty over skill: you are rewarded for staying with the company over your merits - Big divide over who is manager and who is not and how individuals are treated because of it (makes it difficult to interact with managers and can cause resentment) - Blame culture: if you find a fix, you are told to blame it and have the person who broke it fix it, it really does not cultivate teamwork and fosters an environment of let's get code that doesn't break the branch over quality code - Churning out code over resolving technical debt: many parts of the codebase is archaic and never touched again due to no client need, new code is usually "bandaged" over it - Does not pay for travel: if you worked 8 hours and took 3 hours to commute to a client, you are not paid for the 3 hours.

    solid stepping stone

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - great place to gain a breadth of skills across the tech stack and explore what you enjoy developing if undecided - regular evaluations and code reviews with generally constructive feedback

    Cons

    - insular, hiring too heavily based on arbitrary "culture fit" - focus on being fully billable often impedes internal product development - seniority alone determines job title and pay grade

    Pros

    no pros whatsoever worst place I've ever worked

    Cons

    underpaid most software engineers there don't know anything about software engineering which stems from the fact that they don't pay more than 20 dollars an hour
