    Incredibly poorly run company.

    Associate Director (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsI got to work with people all over the world, and I got to travel a lot.

    ConsHorrible salaries, no advancement, no tuition reimbursement, not much office space, the office space available is so run down you could never bring a client there, and don't expect to get a bonus. Overall, it's a horribly run company with a 30% attrition rate. The average employee lasts about 28 months, but the average for new hires direct from college is about 18 months. That kind of says it all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust give up and sell the company to IBM or Accenture.

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

    Results count, People matter - Seriously???

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGood salary, bonus, and nice benefits
    Internal training opportunities
    Having Big 4 consulting experience looks really good on your resume
    Lots of travel (might be a con)

    ConsIf you have to use sick leave or are between projects for more than a couple of weeks, don't be surprised to get that dreaded call from Human Resources
    Top heavy organization - very political environment - short term focused
    Offshore everything mentality

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat all employees with dignity and respect
    Understand that different markets support different margins and deal sizes, and set realistic internal expectations
    Fix offshore issues or move offshore operations to countries with better work ethic

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

    Horrific Experience

    Senior Manager (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsSome of my peers were as committed as me to deliver quality results. We did as much as we could with little to no support from HQ.

    ConsAn extreme shortage of qualified resources and very little to none strategic vision to properly scope and sell projects. The team was then told to make it successful, and we were threatened with discharge if we couldn't use the unqualified resources to complete our deliverables on time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe senior management is part of the problem.

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

    Horribly Managed Company

    Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsEntrepreneurial approach in the management of the company.

    ConsExpected to do a lot with no support and no budget. Culture is a shark tank. People are pitted against each other.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAll senior leadership should be fired. There is no direction, no vision and no strategy. It might be better if they just sold off the company in pieces and closed the doors.

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

    Dont consider

    Manager (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsOne among the big 5

    ConsAll the skilled Management folks have left the company. Currently the senior management is filled with just old people who have no management skills at all. Just because they have experience doesnt mean they have the skills to manage people. i worked with them for 8 years and i have seen better days with them. i felt bad when i resigned but it the worst place NOW to work

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop recruiting people we have too many on the bench. Also advance people inside the organization do not hire senior management from outside who have no idea about the culture. this hurts the good people inside and thats the reason all the good skills have left

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
