I have been working at Caiman Consulting Corp full-time (Less than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Simply put, I love working for Caiman. First and foremost, everyone at Caiman is fantastic, top to bottom across the organization. Yes, the recruiting/interviewing process is more intense than other companies, but it is because they want to make sure they find the best fit for Caiman. Even though we don't work together on a day-to-day basis (the standard in consulting), we are genuinely excited to see each other at All Hands meetings. It's practically like walking into a place where everyone knows your name and is genuinely glad to see you.
I have worked for companies ripe with management dysfunction, lack of trust from employees, lack of transparency, and a textbook lesson in how not to manage a business. It is not that way at Caiman. I have never had a leadership team I trust and believe in as much as I do at Caiman. They are transparent with how the company is performing, what they're focusing on, and their go-forward plans. In addition to being strong leaders, they are good people.
In consulting I believe you are only as good as the company you work for and there is no other consulting company I would choose to tie my professional reputation to. Caiman is respected by clients, always deliver, reward their employees for hard work, and foster a fantastic culture.
Compensation is very competitive, if not stronger, than other similar sized consulting companies. What sets Caiman apart are their bonuses. Employees are rewarded for working hard and selling new work. We don't have a sales team - our consultants are our sales team. And Caiman always pays out on bonuses. Always.
Net net, I don't think you can't ask for more from a consulting company. It's a great place to work and if you're considering Caiman, I don't think you can go wrong.
The only con I can think of is regarding the benefits. For a small company, Caiman has a great benefits package. That said, I wish sometimes the benefits were a bit richer, or health insurance a bit less expensive. Regardless, it is still a great package and competitive with other like-sized consulting companies.
Advice to Management
Stay true to the Caiman culture. Foster and protect it, because it is what makes Caiman different and special.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Caiman Consulting Corp in February 2013.
The interview process is time intensive. They want you to meet with a variety of people to make sure you are a good fit for Caiman. They want to see how you think on your feet, how you handle different situations, all because it will tell them how you'll handle difficult client situations. If you're looking for just another contract Caiman is not for you, as it is not a staffing firm.
- How would you handle a difficult situation with your client? With multiple follow up questions to push you to provide a specific, actionable approach. You won't get away with a standard, short answer. You'll need to show you can think through the situation and show multiple ways to address it. It's not hard, you just need to be thorough and smart. Answer Question
Negotiation was easy. Once I received the offer things moved quickly. It was a far easier, faster process than the interview process.
