"Reward is always a matter of how much sweat you are willing to put into your work. A consortium is a free structure, there are lots of upsides but also a lot of seasonal coming and going. When you work at Got SOA?, you are in charge, which also means that you have to do everything, including some accounting chores and writing your invoices and following up with clients beyond the call of duty. It's empowering."

"Outstanding and challenging technical work can be found. Lot of thought leadership in the organization. Sometimes is very hard to be a forward thinking consultant since the business units, who manage relationship and client contracts tend to be extremely conservative and not willing to look kindly at new solutions because of the risk involved in proposing new solutions concept. This makes CSC more of a follower than a leader in the world of COTS products."
