SENIOR DATA MIGRATION CONSULTANT (Former Employee) – Travel – 18 March 2019
BackOffice is poorly managed at the higher levels of the company and regarding staffing of projects. There is severe lack of communication between the deployment team and the consultants when the employee is on the bench, so much so that it is to the point of being disrespectful to the employee.
Once deployed on a project, however, the management of the project team and the relationship between team members is almost always exceptional. But these "managers" of these projects are fellow employees (also consultants) and not part of the company's management team.
It's too bad there is such a disconnect though between employees/consultants and the BackOffice's management team and also with those who place consultants on a project.
For the times when the employee/consultant is actively working on a project, it is a fantastic place to work. But the process in between projects when waiting for the next assignment, it is one of the worst places to work. The company is so disorganized and so disrespectful at keeping the employee informed during benchtime.
Exceptional place to work (however, only when deployed to a project)
Poor management, disrespectful due to lack of communication when consultant is on the bench, no pay increases year after year after year, no reimbursement for further training outside of the organization
Sr. Data Consultant (Current Employee) – Norwalk, OH – 14 January 2019
BackOffice has lots of room for improvement. They are set up to succeed but they just need to take action. With their partnership with SAP and many other leaders in the data world, this company could be so much more. With that being said, they give everyone a chance at showing their skills when you work with their clients. They just don’t always train you in the skills you need before you start the job. This enables you to learn as you go and really apply it everyday. BackOffice has a very bright future and with new leadership on the way - this company can do great things.
Software Developer (Former Employee) – Remote – 30 August 2018
I was brought on as a Software Developer. Once hired I was placed on a team comprised of only myself. Then instructed to created advanced features on legacy code with no assistance to help understand the code/framework that was created over the past 10 years.
Throughout the course of my employment I was frequently reprimanded for not pushing 4+ new features/tickets per week. As well, I was instructed that I was not able to move to a different position in the company that utilized newer technologies and coding practices. So, I was effectively stuck in a dead end job with no promising future.
Work from home
Horrible health care with high costs; Bad Management
Data Migration Consultant (Current Employee) – Hyannis, MA – 12 February 2018
Interviewed in July 2017 with an offer shortly after. Start date supposed to be mid August. Start date was moved to SEPTEMBER 26th to "allow other new hires to take vacations." In between this time, the company was acquired, but the eleven new hires were given assurances that everything was okay. The new hires went to Ohio for a two-week training and then were sent home to await deployment. Deployment never came...the eleven of us sat at home for over 5 months before getting a call saying we were being laid off due to no projects on the horizon. The company literally hired and laid off 11 consultants because they could not find any work for us to do. I have to assume the management, especially the sales side is run very poorly. Management consistently assured the new hires that our jobs were safe, and we were being given a "free" pass...apparently not.
I would not recommend working at this company unless you like being left in the dark for months at a time. Horrible experience for a new hire.
Management, lack of work, treated new hires poorly
Solution Consultant (Former Employee) – MA – 8 February 2018
My role as a Solution Consultant for Enterprise Data Migration & Governance enabled me to work with the global team. I had the opportunity to work for the APAC region for Digital Transformation with SAP S/4HANA.
The company had excellent work culture with a very flexible work-life balance.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the team that treated you like a family.
Janitor (Former Employee) – Norwalk, OH – 12 September 2017
Typical day at work was you go in and for the enter time you are there you are cleaning something. So I typically cleaned all the computer dest that they worked at and mopped all the floors and cleaned the bathrooms.
DATA ANALYST (Current Employee) – Norwalk, OH – 24 July 2017
Can be a good fit. Raises and promotions are few and far between. Management not transparent about promotion and raise status. Three weeks vacation plus paid holidays. Frequently asked to do things outside the scope of position. Frequently sold as 1 or 2 positions higher than what you get paid for.
