    Pros

    Good technical team to work with. Good projects to work on. Great customers.

    Cons

    Untrustworthy management.

    The wide range of reviews on Glassdoor makes it clear there is some pretty manipulative reviews on Glassdoor, most containing flat out lies. Clearly upper management has been spamming Glassdoor and it will be reported. Don't trust what you read.

    Advice to Management

    Open up more and don't be so stubborn. Listen to your team, there's a reason why you hire experts; excercise that reason!

    I have been working at Infront Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Independent of leadership, some smart technical people work here....

    Cons

    Tired of hearing things that aren't true....
    Leadership says we have 8 full time MVP's. On a recent webinar this month I overhead and read a slide that said there were more than 8 full time MVP's. That's not true - there are 3 - including one overseas. Review Linkedin and see how many MVP's are employed here. Tout the company as global. There is nothing global (outside of the US there's two employees - not full blown operations) about Infront at all. From what others have said, the company was franchised in name only to look larger with a global presence. Why lie about your size. It's a small business - that's a reality - but you want to appear big. No need to lie about our size.
    CEO lacks focus - one month we are focused on his management packs and the next on a patching product. No one wants to work on his pet projects because they are shiny this month and then dull the next. One month we are asked to work on software and then it gets put on hold because everyone has to be billable. It's a never ending cycle. No consistency in what we are supposed to be doing.
    You can't believe what's told to you.

    Advice to Management

    They won't listen....

    Pros

    Hey. I was just listening to a podcast about the 13 qualities of bad leaders. And I realized, that our CEO did not have any of those qualities. You've been one of the best bosses and best leaders that I've had the privilege to work with. Just wanted you to know that.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of growth and change and sometimes what is a priority to me, isn't a priority to the company.

    Cons

    Nothing to be highlighted. We can always expect small tweaks in any organization.

    Continue on the existing strategy Example EOS based execution .

    Keep up with the EOS system as it has made a world of difference with the morale of the team.
