    Huge alcohol and party culture. Nepotism is strong with this company.

    ProsEngagements can be fun. You get to travel the world. Coworkers are fun to be around and very motivating. Being immersed in the industry is as career building as working in it.

    Their legal department is spot on, always.

    ConsHuge alcohol and party culture. If you don't follow the "norm" in that regard, you will be treated differently and your opportunities will be less.

    Operations team does little to nothing for most of the employees. It seems like they just don't know what they are doing and they don't particularly care about you unless you are in their "top 5 consultants" list.

    I've seen many employees get the boot or get demoted in favor of friends of management. Often times, those friends don't have the relative experience necessary to fulfill those positions. There is a lack of respect between supervising directors and their charges.

    There is no HR department, which makes it very hard to be heard when you do have a problem with another employee. Usually it's just brushed under the rug.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReorganize your management. Hire individuals who know how to communicate. Let go of anyone who didn't pass a standard interview process.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Dysfunctional Personified

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome very talented people working here, so the chance to be part of a very skilled group of people is always a plus

    ConsCEO short on strategy and strong on micro management, so you end up with a constant churn of employees, just a few of the employees stay for any substantial amount of time. You can see this but looking at Linkedin. It;s a revolving door for a reason, they hire skilled people, who don't need to stay in a bad situation, so they leave in short order.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring in a professional CEO, move the current one to VP of sales, which is much better skill set match

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Starts out great, things change quick.

    ProsFun events, happy hours often, good benefits, friendly coworkers.

    ConsMinimal training, some practices feel unethical.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
