No client diversity, if client contract ends and you’re sent to the bench and may never return. 90% of SDLC business is Highmark. The company thinks very highly of themselves and likes to present themselves as an Accenture type organization, they are not. There are many meetings and events where they will tell you how great they are doing, how much money they are making, and how many people they are hiring. (The meetings are on employee time and you’re expected to make up any time spent away from the client)
SDLC is finding it hard to grow as Highmark cuts back on contract work so in turn SDLC’s business is reduced along with staff.
Joining this company was a huge mistake, I would have been better off as Highmark employee. They present everything to be great but it’s far from good. The health insurance is expensive both in premiums and deductibles. There is a 401k but they do not match. (Managements answer that people don’t leave because of a 401k) To anyone thinking of joining this company, DO NOT they are a glorified staffing agency. They say they offer training programs but deny requests for additional training.
There is no company culture, quarterly meetings are held with practice leaders and staff. That may be the only time you see these people since almost 100% of your time is spent at the client site. These are simply hooray for SDLC meetings so they feel important.
OK compensation for the area. Most co-workers are decent.
