Level II Consultant (Current Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – 4 May 2018
Pcubed's primary function for its clients is staff augmentation. They help fill any gaps their client may have no matter the function. Project management consulting firm is what is advertised but very few employees actually have these duties. Too many people end up as glorified secretaries. It is very demotivating for an experienced working professional with advanced degrees and high ambitions end up performing a job anyone could do. On top of this consultants are paid far below industry standards. The fact is Pcubed does not bring in a lot of revenue per consultant and pays people what they can.
There are many people who are very happy at this company. Those people want easy work, flexible hours, and are fine with the low salary.
If you're ambitious, I would recommend this company only if you need to break into the consulting world but plan to switch to a better firm after a year or so.

Bad management, do not trust when they speak about project management positions. Most of the positions are just for secretary positions. They are not consultants but just contractors to make money for the company. The business management almost lied to me about the position. If you like to progress in your job, avoid Pcubed.
Pcubed is the worst place I've ever worked in my adult life. Management in Houston and Michigan are incompetent and do not treat employees fairly. Consultants are paid a maximum of $1000 bonus which is significantly below market value for employees with 10+ years experience and post graduate degrees. Benefits are awful and not competitive. All employees in Houston were unemployed and desperate for a job. No one would ever leave a job to work at Pcubed. They are really contractors, not consultants.
Low pay, terrible benefits, no real growth opportunities, poor leadership, pay full price for parking downtown, 2 weeks vacation
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Michigan – 4 January 2018
Everything they during their phone interview or face to face interview about the company and accomplishments is not correct. They lie. They don't perform project manager job function or duties, they are more a consulting company. They don't treat employees fair, not honest and they force employees to work they way they want. They take your work and present it themselves. Take the review about this company seriously

Sadly, I have to leave this lovely company due to my contract of maternity cover coming to an end, but it's a great place to work with awesome management, colleagues that are willing to help and develop individuals.
Great people and management, both ways comms culture
Program Management Consultant (Former Employee) – Dearborn, MI – 8 November 2016
This organization is not professionally ran. Employees for this company are seen as replaceable. When you are hired the organization tells you everything you want to here and does not live up to it. The organization also does not protect their employees.
