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

    Pros

    * Each business unit has its own culture and some autonomy. So if there are things you want to change or negotiate, the local GM can make that happen. * Very strong focus on Cloud and delivering business value, good vision for the future. * Good career opportunities. I have advanced from Consultant, to Senior Consultant, to Senior Lead Consultant during my time at Catapult. On top of this I get recurring training...

    Show More

    Cons

    * If you're having problems you have to reach out and get help. Don't expect to get anything for free, but also expect to get help when asked for. * Project Management culture has a long way to go. Some business units have very engaged PMs working with the consultants, while other business units have consultants that feels like "I don't need a PM" and that causes project delivery issues. * As with any consulting...

    Advice to Management

    * Assign Project Managers their real title. Don't call PMs "Senior Consultant" since that is just not true and confuses customers. * Incorporate lessons learned into delivery work. We're making the same mistake over and over again cross business units. * When a consultant is getting a new title or position, be clear about expectations in what tasks that has been added to the workload, and how many hours that is...

    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 3 years

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance is the best I've experience in over 15 years in IT. C level employees take time to know your name, and genuinely seem interested. Salary is competitive, and if you work hard, your raises are great. Open door policy makes it easy to keep water cooler talk to a minimum, allowing for more focus on work. Very collaborative environment. Ego's are kept to a minimum. Great people to work with, and be friends...

    Cons

    Bonus structure needs to be evaluated. Pennies on the dollar, just don't hold much incentive. Preferred the renewal bonus of past.

    Advice to Management

    Remember constant growth is not sustainable. The key is sustainability over time. There will always be peaks and valleys. People before profits, and the profits will come. Great job otherwise! Keep up the forward looking thinking.

    Amazing friendly management, family friendly

    Cons

    No growth opportunities, good for beginners to intermediate careers

    Advice to Management

    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

      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.

      Pros

      I've worked at many different places in several industries. They ALL their "#1 resource" is their employees. This company says that, too - the difference is that they do more than pay it lip service. - If you work extra you get paid extra. - The company *Publicly* recognizes those who exemplify our 'core' values, and financially rewards them as well. - We have an EXTREMELY collaborative environment here. ...

      Cons

      I have run across a select few who actually think this is a TOUGH place to work. To them I would say that they need to get out in the world and experience a few more places where the company genuinely does NOT view the employee as anything more than a round peg in a round hole, to be paid salary and benefits. They'll regret leaving.

      Advice to Management

      Stay the course. Keep doing what we're doing. The ship is righting itself.

      I have been working at Catapult Systems full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      Catapult has done an excellent job providing growth opportunities, and the work generally has been interesting. Like any consulting work, there are some ups/downs in the types of projects you get, but overall, it has been good. Lots of good opportunities to expand your skill set.

      Cons

      Catapult has made the mistake of assigning people to projects even if they weren't the right fit at times. Catapult hasn't gotten as far done the path of standardizing their process and delivery, but are working at it.

      Advice to Management

      Continue standardizing how we approach our projects. Keep focusing on delivering quality work. Continue to be flexible around the changing IT industry.
