100% of the CEO
Current Employee – been working at Avascent full-time for more than a year
Pros – Great corporate culture, strong opportunities for upward mobility in consulting without an MBA, and a focus on objectively interesting markets (for example: satellites, space launches, big data analytics, cyber security)
Cons – Culture can be political because it's a small company (I.e., your annual review isn't necessarily objective or performance-based), HR and organizational processes in general aren't always streamlined and have suffered from growing pains, and work/life balance can be a struggle, especially if you're good at what you do
Advice to Senior Management – Pay attention to time management and organization; make sure to take the time to coach analysts and capitalize on their talent whenever possible
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
