    "Great company....if you want to be micro-managed."

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Catapult Systems full-time

      Pros

      Good at finding permanent jobs, constant communication, pays well, etc., etc., etc.

      Cons

      Awesome at micro-managing. They "need to know" exactly what you are doing, even if it does not relate to the job itself. Very unprofessional and rude.

      Advice to Management

      Stop asking people what they are doing outside of work. That has absolutely NOTHING to do with the job or the position and it makes you look very unprofessional and obsessed.

      We appreciate your feedback! While many Catapult employees do spend time together outside of normal business hours, we certainly appreciate that not everyone is interested in sharing what they do when they aren't at work. Thank you for that reminder and for sharing your experience ...

      Pros

      Company culture, People, Executive Leadership, Product Development, Innovation, Stability, Professional Development Opportunities

      Cons

      Would like to see additional paid parental leave on top of sick days.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you are doing! The one suggestion I would have is to review Parental Paid Leave policy to align more with other tech firms in Austin.

      Pros

      Catapult has a great family culture, reputation, strong desire to do what is right, competitive salary and bonus structure that encourages mutual success. Executive management team is top notch and genuinely cares about the employees.

      Cons

      Change is slow, but it does happen.

      Pros

      Amazing friendly management, family friendly

      Cons

      No growth opportunities, good for beginners to intermediate careers

      Advice to Management

      Please recognize talent and make an effort to keep them. Not make that effort when they decide to leave the company

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

      Pros

      Catapult is an employee focused organization, with many activities planned for bonding and networking. There are lots of opportunities for consultants to get training in technical and soft skill areas. Innovative with Intellectual Property led unique offerings, such as Fuse and Launch. Which are priced right and wisely managed services offering, not just application development. Flat organization chart - consultants...

      Cons

      I am not a very social person, so the planned activities are less compelling. Although there a great many extremely talented consultants, often the qualifications for delivering a project is based on who is most available.

      Advice to Management

      Expand beyond the "Microsoft Consulting Company" reputation

      I have been working at Catapult Systems full-time

      Pros

      Always busy with cutting edge technologies and new challenges everyday. Everyone in the company looks after one another. Within previous employers, everyone seemed to always looks after themselves. Not the case with Catapult, everyone supports everyone as one of our brand promises - 'We Bring the Whole Team'

      Cons

      None that I can think of at this time. I couldn't think of a better place to work - from team members, leadership and culture.

      Advice to Management

      None at this time. Catapult is the most transparent company I have ever worked for - from mission and vision which to actual and forecast financials

      I have been working at Catapult Systems

      Pros

      Atmosphere. Culture. Independence. I'm mostly on my own on a long term project for a large client and they don't micro manage me. There are plenty of fun events (I can only speak for the corporate hq in Austin) and opportunities to meet coworkers in various settings. The high level of talent has helped me learn an incredible amount in a short amount of time. There are plenty of bonus opportunities for consultants. If...

      Cons

      Pay and Benefits. The base pay isn't bad but it could be better. You could developer software for some big name company and get 10k-20k more a year. They do encourage good work with regular raises - at least over the 2 years I've been here. The benefits are on par with any smaller business - not much they can do about that aside from getting 20 times bigger. They more than make up for the pay and benefits with culture...

      I have been working at Catapult Systems

      Pros

      Catapult has an excellent culture, with very little stratification and no internal politics. Catapult also really cares about its people and this comes through in its by-and-large local delivery model, outstanding professional development program, regular social events, the annual "Catapult Kids Day," and the openness with which Management regularly shares information with all employees. The company does a good...

      Cons

      Catapult is undertaking a significant business model evolution brought about by the shift from product-oriented systems upgrade cycles and system integrations to cloud / consumption-based technology services. This is requiring a good deal of energy, focus and financial investment. As a small and dynamic organization, Catapult has not historically placed heavy emphasis on process maturity. This can really be both good...

      Advice to Management

      In terms of the business, keep doing what you are doing, but do it faster. Regarding employees, increase focus on long-term career planning and enablement.

        Pros

        Catapult was just named the Microsoft US Partner of the Year! It's great being a part of it and look forward to the ride ahead. Go team!

        Cons

        The yearly performance review process was getting a little bit outdated but i'm glad to see that we are going with a more modern approach moving forward.

        Advice to Management

        Remain transparent as its refreshing to work for a company that treats its employees as adults and assets and isn't afraid to share information freely, including detailed financials.

The company does a good job of providing information and conveying the future direction of the organization.

        Cons

        Consulting can be challenging in terms of schedules. Client needs and personal needs are always a balancing act.
