    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Pittsburgh, PA (US)

    I worked at SDLC Partners full-time (more than 5 years)


    * Excellent Employers , excellent owners who truly cares for its employees
    * Great location
    * lots of opportunities for growth and career diversification
    * melting pots for great talents
    * competitive salary
    * transparent
    * atleast for some folks , there were and still are lots of good and interesting opportunities to learn from.
    * for a medium size organization , SDLC has presence in almost all aspects of Software Development Life Cycle - from Application development , mobile development to Automation testing , to proper project and program management , to Business Intelligence field etc.

    I normally do not write review , but after reading some of the review in glassdoor , i felt like I should contribute. I have also moved on to some other organization , but I have mostly positive experience with SDLC. If you have issues with work life balance while working with client project , there is little any employer can do unless you take the initiative. Same goes for anybody who feels he/she has not been heard. This doesnt mean I never had any issues (nothing that cannot be managed if addresses in proper way)


    * Some of its practice needs more diversification and better client base
    * Earlier they were dependent on only one client (mainly) , but now things are changing and SDLC is making its presence felt to other businesses within Pittsburgh. Still a bit more expansion is required when it comes to client base.
    * some of its strength can also be its weakness, like , it has presence only in Pittsburgh. Things are changing , but a little slower.
    * could stream line some of the HR process instead of doing things on ad-hoc basis. Although changes done in recent past are definitely in right direction.
    * Could have better process for Green Card processing (again this also has been addressed , so , not a con technically)
    * The office cubes could be bigger.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * keep doing what you are doing
    * Diversify more (maybe)
    * Need projects outside Pittsburgh as well.
    * Need to invest in employee training more so as to gain competitive edge.

    Positive Outlook
