    Great opportunity to develop your problem solving skills

    Prefer Not to Disclose (Current Employee) Vienna, VA

    ProsVery strong staff -- junior and senior levels
    Tremendous learning opportunity
    High stakes problems and highly positive feedback from clients regarding impact
    Not as political or formal as other firms
    Staff often develop strong friendships

    ConsBrand name is not as widely known
    Selected project mix given small size
    Different styles of senior management can be a positive and a negative at times
    Location is attractive given all of the activities in the immediate area but would better if it was downtown

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep looking for opportunities to invest in and grow business

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Everyone wants to get out...very low employee morale and no concern for employee motivation and productivity

    Analyst (Current Employee) Vienna, VA

    ProsGood review and feedback process.
    Good compensation.

    ConsVery low employee satisfaction and morale -- leading to high annual turnover (50%+)
    Poor communication of important decisions affecting employees
    Poor allocation of resources (employees as well as costs)
    Recruiting process is deceptive about work culture
    Very variable in lifestyle, hours and management style depending on who's your manager
    Staffing process is arbitrary and unfair, human resource policies are poor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry and learn about how to effectively manage your human resources. Realize the value of current employee knowledge, especially given the lack of training. Pay more attention to work life balance.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
