    I worked at Ascend Consulting

    Pros

    As an IT project and business process consultancy, Ascend does a number of things well. They have significant experience within their business verticals, Financial Service and Insurance. As a strategy, they work hard to staff engagements locally both for clients, to keep costs down, and for employees, to allow for work-life balance that is not a given for consultants. The caliber of project typically involves reporting to a client VP or above.

    Cons

    Reactive vs. proactive. The recent recession has demonstrated that more can be done to diversify client base to try and limit downside sales/revenue exposure in cost cutting times. Internal operations maturity takes a back seat and often the same areas of focus are highlighted and discussed with little tangible development/improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide guidance and follow through on strategic initiatives. Be sure that the actions from the top, match the words and ideas that are discussed/reviewed. Reward client extensions for consultants who continuously earn them. Being small compared to Big 4 should be a good thing, nimble, flexible, attentive, focused - Act small.
