    Pluspunten

    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 unique, is the community you get when you work there. I see people from the back office at my client every day where we get coffee and catch up. Their consultant managers are genuinely interested in how your work is going, how they can help you, and are sometimes the only people who understand the challenges of being a young consultant. I feel extremely engaged with the back office even though my day to day is at my client. There is a constant push to get you to grow in your career by getting certifications, trainings, and networking. I think it was the best decision I made coming out of college. I've experienced more than I expected in the short 7 months I've been there and made so many connections.

    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!

    Pluspunten

    -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. Won't feel like your left out to suffer at the client. Always there to help.
    -LOTS of training opportunities so no excuse to not advance your career.
    -Rewards hard work. If you put in the effort and take time to advance in your career you will get rewarded.
    -Allows you to make the most of your experience. You aren't required to go to company events, but the more you put in the more enjoyment you get out!
    -Gain a lot of confidence about your career being surrounded by dynamic and hardworking peers.
    -High engagement with teams and transparency about what you want will get you further. If you are willing to step into something challenging, it will reward your career.

    Minpunten

    -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.

    Ik heb een voltijdbaan gehad bij Boom Lab (Korter dan een jaar)

    Pluspunten

    - 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 is a staffing firm.
    - Projects can be either heavily rewarding or incredibly unfulfilling. If you unfortunately get placed in an unfulfilling role, back office does little to help with the situation. However, you can decline to continue following what can be extensions for up to two years.
    - You will be MASSIVELY underpaid. I left and immediately earned 30k more than with Boom Lab.
    - Benefits are sub-par. No 401k matching, below-average health insurance, minimal PTO.

    Advies aan management

    -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.

    Pluspunten

    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.

    "Good Company for Starting Out"

    Pluspunten

    Great company if just starting out in the industry. Numerous training opportunities and ability to build relationships with the delivery and consultant manager teams allows for career development and growth. Can connect with other consultants at frequent social and charity events. Ability to have good work life balance (40 hours per week) if desired, or ability to work overtime to receive yearly bonus (depending on client). Many large and well known clients/companies with which to be placed. W2 employee option enables a decent benefits plan.

    Minpunten

    Some client placements had ambiguous/unstructured roles which led to unfulfilling project experiences.

    PTO must be used for jury duty.

    Advies aan management

    Would love to see some sort of small bonus for any employee referrals that are hired. Referring an employee to Boom Lab shows that the current employee is invested in the company's growth and development.

    Pay scale is unclear. Would appreciate learning more about what the average starting salary is and how that is adjusted based on previous work experience, as well as how salary grows as you advance through the company's development track.

    Plenty of opportunity to learn and try out different projects/companies.

    Minpunten

    You don't really have a choice in where you go. Some projects are good, some are bad.

    Advies aan management

    Stick to core principle of building careers. If a consultant is not in a good position, help move them rather than just talking to them about what they arent liking.

    Pluspunten

    The authenticity and positive energy within this company is unmatched. Since joining Boom Lab in a training class, I have been able to make and sustain lasting friendships with peers and managers. The back office team has been helpful and considerate when finding the right fit for both my project and my client (I have completed two projects). You will have all of Boom Lab pulling for you - your recruiters, consultant managers, and delivery managers. You are given clear expectations and a clear career growth plan. Incredible environment to start your career!

    Minpunten

    The interview process is rigorous, so be prepared to come in to the office for multiple interviews (both one-on-one and in a group setting) before hearing a decision.
