    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!

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

    Pros

    They pay every two weeks....but will not pay you in advance for having a client pre-pay for a year of service

    Cons

    Anemic leadership with no clear vision of Managed Services nor Product. A technology consulting company historically with good culture and a leading presence in the market hollowed out after acquisition by the Chinese and that runs only on nepotism and kissing up to leadership. Leadership offers those on the desk little to no support, leaving them to sink or swim, and willing to cut bait at the slightest need to provide...

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself, and most everyone at the Exec level. Sr Leadership is completely useless and can't even do basic blocking an tackling for their reps.

    I have been working at Catapult Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Catapult is a good place to work. The projects are interesting, management treats everyone with respect and I get to work a flexible schedule. If I work hard, my efforts are recognized by multiple people in the organization. The organization has a friendly culture. It is easy to reach out to people in different cities and get advice. In addition, if I want to talk to people on the Executive team, I can just email...

    Cons

    It would be nice to have more 401K match. Good training programs, but could use some more strategic thinking on how to get more people engaged with the programs.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the roles that people are filling suit their strengths, don't try "to put a square peg in a round hole". It's a small company which makes it easier for people to leverage their individual strengths in multiple ways, find a way to better foster that.

    I have been working at Catapult Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    More than a job, a chance to express your gifts, talents and serve like you're on a purposeful mission. Company seems to be ahead of competitors in crafting a vision for services in the new world of the Cloud and consumption based software. I've experienced and have heard many stories where Catapult leadership has come through for employees in tough situations with compassion ranging from time off from work, additional...

    Cons

    As a smaller company some of the benefits such as 401k matching are on not par with the largest companies but the competitive salary can offer other savings alternatives. Consulting isn't for everyone as the pace and focus on service may not appeal to persons wanting the approach of a software company or the structure of an industry position.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on Culture a top priority. Culture change was one of my biggest concerns in the years since the ChinaSoft merger, I have to date found the ChinaSoft management to be encouraging and supportive of the company while keeping the core culture of the company unchanged and would like to see this continue.

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

    Pros

    1) I love the exposure to technology. 2) I love meeting a bunch of new people. 3) They are very forgiving if you have a family commitment that interferes with a project. They will back you up and not hold it against you. 4) The culture is top notch. The employee events are fun and interesting. 5) The pay can be very good (if you haggle for it or are an established name in the community). 6) As long...

    Cons

    1) Weak benefits. The only thing attractive about the benefits here is that you have insurance. The insurance premium per paycheck is pretty high. Almost no 401k matching. 2) They will sometimes try to push you into an engagement you are not ready for. So, tell them NO if you are not ready. But, this is not just an issue with Catapult. It's an issue with this industry....

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and do your best to act on their concerns. Do something about the benefits. Make Catapult more attractive to new employees. Make your mid-level consultants feel more valued. Change your promotion/merit increase policy to make it less likely that a consultant will leave or threaten to leave. Do something about the benefits (Yes, I said that twice for emphasis on importance).
