your typical it consultancy

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at BearingPoint

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

Director (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at BearingPoint

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

I worked at BearingPoint

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.

Trying to be Accenture, but unable to find its mojo

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
McLean, VA

I worked at BearingPoint

Pros- Fair to Good colleagues in comparison to other top consulting companies
- Good benefits
- Great PTO (5 weeks/yr in pretty standard)

Cons- Promotions and reviews were anything but transparent
- Politics like its Capitol Hill!
- Company was perpetually in hard times, so no training whatsoever

Advice to Senior Management- Make reviews transparent
- Make up your mind -- do you want to be a global consulting company or not

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Former BearingPoint Employee

Senior Business Consultant (Former Employee)
Costa Mesa, CA

I worked at BearingPoint

Pros- Consulting projects with many of the Fortune 500 companies
- Fellow "on the ground" consultant were a great group of people (intelligent, hardworking, fun to travel with)
- You will learn a lot

Cons- Senior SENIOR management has no idea what they're doing with the firm. More often than not, it seems as though our strategic plan is to "copy Accenture" yet we have yet to decipher what they're good at and how that could possibly translate to benefits for our organization
- The promotion and bonus process is clandestine and down-right silly. You'll be told you're doing an excellent job by management, they'll tell you that you have earned an EE (Exceeds Expectations) or SE (Super Exceeds Expectations) but you will be rated as ME (Meets Expectations) because all EE's and SE's have to receive a certain bonus...which they really can't afford to give out.

Advice to Senior ManagementFor those interested in pursuing opportunities with former BearingPoint partners and Senior Managers now at PWC and Deloitte, I'd suggest going for it. Those who are responsible for client satisifcation are competent and enjoyable to work with. The bankruptcy and subsequent sale of the company rid the company of the horrible senior manager that was plaguing growth and direction. With the management structure of PWC and Deloitte, I believe the combination of BearingPoint talent and PWC/Deloitte management make for a great working environment, under a name that people are actually familiar with "huh, what's BearingPoint? Oooh, formerly KPMG consulting, got it!".
