    I worked at Accretive Solutions

    Pros

    The people make the organization. Many opportunities are available with client companies, but you have to make the effort to go to the office and help them sell you. If you are willing to take the time to help them market your services, then you will be successful here.

    Cons

    The best work tended to go to the same "favorite" consultants. It took almost 3 years to become a favorite consultant, but paid off very well after that point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand the client first theory, but Consultants should be treated as partners, not as second class citizens.

    I have been working at Accretive Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people I have interacted with or worked with have consistently had a strong ethical nature combined with a strong work ethic. This is consistent with management as well as the consultants delivering service to the clients.
    Training for internal staff is beginning to gain headway.

    Cons

    Training for consultants is woefully lacking. The consultant has to pretty much rely upon the skill sets they bring to the company when they start combined with what they pick up over time by doing.
    The company has very little Brand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop training for consultants that covers two areas:
    1. Technical consulting skills and tools
    2. Training covering the soft skills consultants can use on the client site on a day to day basis.
    3. Allocate resources to marketing and development of thought leadership

    I worked at Accretive Solutions as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly and accommodating people to work with.

    Cons

    The company was not well informed of the day to day work of their contract people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monthly interaction with their contract employees for any issues that need to be discussed of just to check in on how their employees are doing working with the company they are representing.

    I have been working at Accretive Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun, collaborative, education opportunities, client-focused, high-bar for consultants, consultant focused. Overall a positive atmosphere and even if you are just one consultant at an engagement you know you have people behind you at the company and ready to help when you need it.

    Cons

    More opportunities for consultants to get to know one another would be great. Consultants are typically in the field on engagements so it is hard to get everyone together.

    Pros

    Limited overtime, depending on assignment

    Cons

    Frequent changes in leadership
    Lack of annual review/compensation process
    Lack of communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement annual review/compensation process to provide employees with feedback and salary increases/bonuses in line with their performance and contributions. Make employees in the field feel just as important and a part of the company as those in the office. Bolster the referral programs.
