Client Executive (Account Manager) (Current Employee) –  Skokie, ILSeptember 21, 2017
Great culture and company leadership, but a bit myopic to the transition to cloud first strategies of IT organizations. This company is starting to pivot, but it may be too late.

Unlimited comp plan for certain roles.

A fickle consultancy
Network Consultant (Former Employee) –  Skokie, ILJune 27, 2017
I was brought on as a full-time employee with Forsythe and after assisting on-site teams around the country they let me go at the direction of some boss 3 levels above me. They told me it was because of the budget.

Documents Manager (Former Employee) –  Skokie, ILJune 16, 2017
Forsythe was a alright place to work for the first 5 years I was there. The management started making many changes that did not work out as they hoped and they consequently then began removing benefits for the employees creating a suspicious environment.

To much flying by the seat of the pants
Sr. Network Engineer (Former Employee) –  Elk Grove Village, ILApril 19, 2017
They cared more about their customers than their employees. They were taking on more and more business that they were not familiar or experienced with so there were a lot of growing pains that the employees were expected to endure. Management was not prone to listen very much either to employee concerns.
Pros
Decent pay and benefits
Cons
Was expected to take on more and more that was not part of original job description

A lot of talent that goes untapped because upper management only knows how to latch on to the current hot-topics

A very fast paced atmosphere with lots of very smart people. Upper management cannot figure out the conversion from being a VAR to a service consultancy.
Pros

You will put in very long work weeks
