    I have been working at Base2 Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked at many places and heard "Our People are our most important asset" and knew the company didn't mean it." Base 2 leadership means it and I've been impressed at the ways they treat people, offer training and bring people together. Great benefits, flexible schedule and support your work.

    Cons

    None that I've found.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Base2 Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with Base2 for just over 4 months. This is my fourth consulting position in over 20 years so I guess you can say I’ve been around the block.

    First and foremost, the People! The staff are very friendly and professional. From the CEO to Operations, to Marketing and HR, the entire team works hard to make you feel at home and provide you with the help and support you need. We all invest a significant amount of our life at work so it matters to enjoy the Company and the people we interact with.

    The CEO is very approachable and does encourage an open door policy. He openly discusses and shares company's vision and near-term and long-term goals. There is a lot of energy and drive to grow and to expand and most importantly to diversify into different industries. This is refreshing because it will reflect in the company's good health and long-term prospects.

    Cons

    I would like the company to consider better vacation policy.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing at the moment.

    I have been working at Base2 Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The Base2 team is a tight knit group of engineers who genuinely care about each other, their projects and their customers.

    I feel like the business will always strive to do the right thing by it's staff and customers, with a strong focus on value and commitment over profitability. I'm lucky to work somewhere with that strong an ethic.

    Cons

    It can be hard to get to know people outside of your own projects.

    Advice to Management

    All the social activities are great, but try and find new ways to connect the staff outside of work m

    Pros

    - Benefits improving year-on-year.
    - Smart and friendly people.
    - Leadership that cares about people.
    - A culture of always doing the right thing for the client.
    - Good sharing of information: quarterly communications meetings, "State of Base2" teleconferences, and "brown bag" lunch presentations.

    Cons

    Some projects involve working most of your time at a client site rather than the home office. This can be rewarding but it's not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work maintaining the culture and improving business processes as the business grows.

    Pros

    Good Compensation
    Nice Home Office
    Good Benefits
    Friendly leadership

    Cons

    Systems Engineering practice is spread over many clients which means you are on your own.
    At the mercy of bureaucracy of client.
    Might as well be full time at client site. You look and quack like a regular employee most of the time.
    No mentorship. Just get billing.
    Don't get to spend much time at nice home office.

    Advice to Management

    Improve mentorship and involvement.
    Try to bring more group cohesion and information sharing as Base2 instead of being dependent on client work.

    Pros

    Work / life balance is stellar. You won't find a smarter, more genuine group of people. You'll get to work on some pretty cool projects. We have some huge opportunities coming up and it's great to be a part of that. The company is in great shape and the next 6 - 12 months are going to be huge, I think. They'll really set us up for the next 5 - 10 years. I continue to be pleasantly surprised by each new person we hire and I work with. Nobody feels like just a number in the office - most people left bigger companies because they wanted to make an impact and be part of a close-knit team.

    Cons

    Sometimes people can seem like they're heading in all different directions.

    Advice to Management

    Work on unifying our messaging and getting everyone on the same page.

    Pros

    Good work environment! Although everyone is working on their own project, people are always willing to lend a hand. Management is very transparent and easy to reach.

    Cons

    The office can get quiet, but that just means everyone is hard at work.
