    A long strange trip

    Executive Assistant (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat co-workers, ability to work remotely, individual teams worked very well together and were a tight knit group. Company meetings were always interesting events.

    ConsPoor upper management team, dishonesty in the information they communicated to the employees regarding the state of the business. Repeatedly told everyone that we were not going to go bankrupt or be sold, when in fact, they were planning to bankrupt the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsulting firms should always be privately held organizations

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    BearingPoint wasn't a bad place

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsEnjoyed my team, compensation and work environment while at BearingPoint. Had the opportunity to work with great professionals and enjoyable clients.

    ConsLeadership lacked proper vision to enable the firm to prosper. Went through restructuring every six months which constantly distracted from execution.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAt this stage I hope that management can unwind the company with minimal impact on the remaining staff and clients.

    Basic BearingPoint

    Business Consultant (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsWork and life balance is one of the most positive things at BE. Time off is easily granted for family emergencies as well as planned vacation. ANother great reason to work at BE is the Performance managers and Managing Directors have an open door to discuss any topics. I would have to admit there are a lot of opportunities at BE that allow employees to gain knowledge and expirence with different and new clients and projects. Many BearingPoint Engagement managers allow employees on a project to drive their own hours, as long as the complete their deliverables while staying focused on their other responsibilities.

    ConsIt's hard to receive big raises even though you performed at a very high level. Reviews are only completed once a year and raises have been minimal the past couple of years. Bonues are hard to come by unless you have senior management in corner. As for projects, it's tough to be on a project that you really want to be on. Currently, bench time is considered taboo and many employees have to find a project to jump on wether it would help their career or not. Needless to say, there are many people staffed on projects that would not benefit one's career.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to intrust responsibility to lower level workers. Executive management needs to be more up front with employees abou the financial situation and other copany issues.
