    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 simple management support. Those who have somehow gotten themselves promoted to Management having no business being there as they cannot manage themselves out of a wet sack. Management has no skills to teach, lead or otherwise support their staff. Team member support is the only way you will have a inkling of surviving. *Do Not* trust the Company, as I was cut with no warning and days before vesting in to the mediocre 401K match program they have. Processes are cumbersome at best, requiring approvals from others above or laterally which will take days to approve, even simple changes thus putting your deal at risk. Unless you are just desperate, or a rock star consultant (not sales) in MSFT technologies, avoid at all cost.

    I worked at Catapult Systems for more than a year

    Pros

    Used to be a great, collaborative environment run by an enthusiastic gentleman from Austin who had a vision to create a great services company that would empower employees to do great work for its clients.

    Cons

    Now owned by a Chinese national company, the talent has drifted away and the vision has left as well.

    Pros

    Excellent people and knowledge base - good access to learning assets as long as you learn on your own

    Cons

    very low raises and low bonus set up - training is on your own - no sending people to classes BUT, they go give you resources to read and encourage testing. Just sold to the Chinese
