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

    Pros

    As a somewhat small company, the relationship with management is as close as you want to be. Catapult really works with employees for life outside of work. The ability to work with extremely talented people makes Catapult a great place to grow, stay and/or launch into new ventures.

    Cons

    The 401K match could definitely be better. As a premier Microsoft Partner, the technical and delivery expectations for consultants can be very high.

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

    Pros

    Open door policy all the way to the CEO. Remote work policy allows excellent work / life balance. Ability to earn a lot of money via generous monthly bonus! Excellent insurance benefits for family & spouse. Ability to learn something new every day and work with cutting edge Microsoft technologies. Feeling valued as an employee - I can't say enough about this. I know this sounds like a cheerleader, but I just passed my 1 year anniversary and hope I can work here until I retire.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is more work to be done than would be preferable in work / life balance, but you always have the ability to say "no" and turn off that valve.

    Pros

    Employee recognition; Great environment; Great insurance plan; Employees are kind and respectful;

    Cons

    The only con is they split PTO into vacation and sick days, so you don't get many PTO days.

    Approves of CEO

    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!

    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 & development courses that is part of my Personal Development Plan. Microsoft certifications, and training material, are paid for. * Acquisition by Chinasoft has not affected our business unit at all. Still strong leadership and clear communication. This might be different in HQ. * None or very limited travel required. * 40-45h weeks is normal unless you want to keep climbing up that ladder and take on more responsibility.

    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 gig, PTO days are sparse so negotiate to get the level you feel happy with. Management will definitely work with you to make you happy.

    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 or call them. Plus, I really like the people I work with every day.

    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.

    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 with outside of the office. Most of the brightest and best work at Catapult. HR is the best in the business! Certs Paid for. Great management team.

    Cons

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