Compatibility with client expectations starts with the technical and personal skills of our employees. IT expertise – skilled analysts, projects managers, and especially those with experience in the .NET and Java stacks – is a fundamental requirement for working at Ferguson Consulting. But that’s only one part of what we look for in our employees.
We hire IT professionals who like to work with smart people and can hold their own in a demanding environment. Our employees build a career at Ferguson. Here IT isn’t a support function for our business – it IS our business. Whether you are a technical resource, project manager, business analyst, or tester, you need to be highly skilled in your discipline and conscientious about the quality of your work to succeed as part of the Ferguson team.
Today’s fast-paced work environment defines experience as multiple skills, adaptability, and competence on many fronts rather than familiarity gained by doing the same thing on the same system many times over. That career-limiting circumstance more often applies to the corporate IT environment than to the vibrant Ferguson work style. In the demanding IT field, in which outcomes determine whether and how long relationships endure, the most reliable way to protect yourself from unemployment is to keep your skills on the leading edge through training and participation in diverse opportunities, which enhances your capabilities – the hallmarks of the Ferguson employee.
Our pay and benefit levels recognize the advanced skills of our talented staff members. In addition, we are unique in our market in the emphasis that we place on continuing education, including an annual training allowance that is an integral part of our compensation package. This kind of investment in our employees’ professional development is an important contributor to making Ferguson a desirable place to build an IT career. Not only do we expect you to maintain up-to-date technical knowledge, we also schedule classes that help you polish interpersonal and project management skills.
It’s all part of delivering IT that fits – fits our clients’ needs and fits our employees’ focus on building successful careers.
