    Pluspunten

    Strong values that the company embraces daily. Very supportive back office that thinks of you as a person and not just a number. They provide the tools and resources at your disposal. Growing company with a lot of new opportunities on the horizon. Small but competitive with a lot of the bigger firms.

    Minpunten

    The pay is on the lower end of the industry average but it's part of their business model, being the "value" consulting firm. Boom Lab prides itself in "being the match". Sometimes you may get stuck on projects that may not align with your career goals per se and there's nothing worse than being on a project for a year+ that isn't geared toward what you want to do. It can be frustrating and sometimes difficult to move...

    3 things: 1. Don't lose sight on your core business values and people as you venture into uncharted territories with expansion. I hope the company isn't expanding too fast and the company can handle such rapid change. 2. I would consider recommending wages to continue to attract top talent and to prevent people from converting/ leaving. It seems that the company tends to have high turnover which is unfortunate...

    Pluspunten

    Free trainings and certifications, social gatherings at least monthly, super easy to network with more experienced employees, changing projects every 6 months to 2 years allows for resume building with top companies in the Midwest. Annual review which is generally a promotion and pay raise. Continuous feedback. Not all people would be a good fit but if you are motivated and want to learn and be challenged, it's the most...

    Minpunten

    Don't have a direct say in client location, position or project - which is only fair because it's mostly a timing game with client needs and consultant roll off dates.

    Advies aan management

    Keep it up and continue to manage/mentor consultants intentionally and directly as we continue to scale and grow across the nation.

    Pluspunten

    I've found that the experience I've received in my first two years at Boom Lab is equivalent to that of peers years ahead of me in their career. I've received both my PMP and CSM certifications through Boom Lab's training courses, at no cost to me. I feel empowered to dictate the direction of my career, and my Consultant Manager has been extremely responsive to my feedback and requests. For example, I expressed interest...

    Wish there were more opportunities, outside of working from the Boom Lab office once a month (First Fridays), to connect with other Boom Lab consultants not at my client.

    I was so excited to start at Boom Lab right out of college. Most of my classmates were trying to get an interview there, it was very sought out and competitive among business majors. They start you with a two week training course where you learn what it will be like at your first client, different tools and methods to use, and create a strong bond with your training class. I think the best part and one I consider to be...

    Minpunten

    I've experienced an intense learning curve as a young IT consultant. It can be challenging at times but once I realized I could go to my consultant manager for advice or just to talk to, it made it a lot easier. It's a young company and they are unique in hiring people with little to no experience, but do a great job training them before they start working.

    Advies aan management

    I've been really happy with management. There is an incredible amount of visibility, and not only that, upper management actually wants to engage with their consultants. The energy at Boom Lab is very contagious, once you're there you realize everyone is energetic, hard working, and positive!

    -Great place to get your career off to a fast start. Tons of large clients means a lot of opportunity, different cultures, and expanding on your hard skills to start your career. -Good support model for new grads.

    -Patience is key for the right opportunity. Won't be on a project you love right away, but if you ask around this is an industry standard. -Starting salary was lower, but aggressive raises comparatively. -Experience seems to vary for employees based on the roles they get early on in their career, some experience faster / slower growth based on projects they get.

      - Training is awesome. Great opportunities to attend and learn new skills - Most clients they work with are prestigious with name recognition and can be a good way for new grads to get a foot in the door

      Minpunten

      - You're not a consultant. Despite the marketing efforts to convince you otherwise, you are a contractor. What does that mean? Boom Lab will find you temporary jobs that you will work regardless of fit or desire. Following which, many clients will try to hire you. Boom Lab puts this option in their contract because it is desirable from clients to hire pre-vetted new grads who have familiarity with the company. This...

      -Be more upfront about what the job will entail - While less than ideal projects will be unavoidable and a good learning opportunity, do more to listen and really understand the consultants long-term goals. This will result in better project outcomes for all parties.

      Lots of training/certification opportunities that are paid for you Work/Life Balance, 3 weeks vacation, company sponsored events, career advice Assignments can lead to full time employment offers, give you experience that boost your career, and seriously increase the worth of your talent (depending on your skill area)

      Minpunten

      Compensation is decent, but would be nice if high performers could be incentivized or considered for raises outside of yearly reviews No referral bonuses

      Advies aan management

      Keep up the awesome work! I love the culture you've created, training opportunities, investments made for consultants, and it is great to see the brand expanding nationally! Higher salaries for more qualified candidates would be a something to consider in the future.
