Fun and friendly place to work
Technical Consultant (Current Employee) –  McLean, VA16 May 2019
This company is great. They care anout their employees. Also the work is fun, good salesforce development projects. The only thing is that they dont seem to have a clear career path for higher level devs. Everything seems to funnel into becoming an architect to advance in career path but that seems to be the case with salesforce in general so cant fault the company really
Pros
Friendly helpful and knowledgeable employees

If you have a life, you won't have one once you are working here
Consultant (Former Employee) –  McLean, VA19 April 2019
When I first started here, I thought it was a trade up from my old job. It wasn't. It is consulting which means your life is owned. You get in at 7:00am, spend multiple hours in meetings that don't count against your 8 hours (unless they are project specific). You pack up at 5:00pm to go home for a restful evening. Oh wait, nope, you need to log in again by 7pm to continue work. My last project had people working at 2am, and no, this wasn't to accommodate a client in a different time zone. There was just so much work to do nobody had time for anything but work. I understand that sometimes you need to go above and beyond, but insane hours was the norm for most projects.

Benefits are great. Pay is sub par. Social events are essentially mandatory (you won't be getting promotions without attending). Pro-bono projects are the same - not mandatory but don't plan on getting a raise or promotion with it. Oh, and pro bono projects are completed on your own time, not the company's, but they will quickly snatch up the credit for your hard work.

I thought this company was awesome when I started. It ended up being a sweat shop that fires people when they can't keep up or want a life outside of work.
Pros
Great benefits, friendly atmosphere, helpful coworkers
Cons
No work life balance.

Okay place to work
Contract Administrator (Former Employee) –  McLean, VA7 September 2018
Acumen Solutions is a decent place to work. Management is fair, and benefits are excellent. I would recommend working there, although my department was short-staffed, which made the job difficult.

Amazing Culture - Amazing People
Senior Business Consultant (Current Employee) –  McLean, VA21 February 2018
This company is amazing - the people are what make this company. In terms of compensation, they are a bit lower than other companies which is disappointing given how amazing the people/culture are.
Pros
People, Culture

Too deep a bench
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VA2 August 2017
Recently laid off because they hired far too many people, and I was expensive on the bench. They failed in negotiations for their contracts and now are cutting back on more expensive consultants.

Stressful to say the least.
Junior Consultant (Former Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VA31 July 2017
Work-life balance was practically non-existent. Work was rewarding and clients were amazing. Upper management could be incredibly difficult to work with and were rarely open to suggestions for improvement.

SalesForce Professionals this is your place to work!
HR Business Partner (Former Employee) –  McLean, VA5 May 2017
Fast growing company; If you have or want to grow your Salesforce experience this is the company for you. If you are Gen X,Y or Millenniums you will love it. Anyone older may find the culture to impersonal, fast-paced, with limited opportunity for learning and development. Huge remote work environment.
Pros
remote work opportunities; pay is good
Cons
Long work hours, work culture is geared towards millenniums, Very little inter-personal opportunities.

Not a good managed comapny
Manager (Current Employee) –  McLean, VA22 March 2012
This company does not manage its people well. It does a very bad job on forecasting its pipeline of work. They hire bunch of people based on assumptions that they are going to win the work. The benefits are really bad. Their pay is not bad so they do give cash.
