    your typical it consultancy

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Prosclear path of advancement, lots of opportunity if you work with the right people and can show your potential, lots of travel (depends on how you look at it)

    Consterrible upper management, no clear direction as a company, ship has been sinking ever since kpmg separation, hard to succeed if you don't get in the right group, little to no bonuses

    Advice to Senior Managementfocus on fixing financial situation, reward your employees or they will leave - they are your IP, stop coming up with new 'frameworks' when none of them work

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ex-B{P

    Director (Former Employee) New York, NY

    Prosnice people that were concerned with doing a good job, but watched their own back- it was also difficult to see the end result

    Conswas kind of difficult to know the firm's direction because it was always shifting - the opportuity to make a lot of money went away

    Advice to Senior Managementjust do it do it do it do it do it - they got too concerned with making it work for each other and not the client

    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.
