I have been working at AlixPartners full-time for less than a year
Pros – Great colleagues and work experience. Small enough that it is easy to build an informal network. Bill actual hours so utilization is really high for those who are staffed.
Cons – Intense working experience, extremely high expectations, and lots of travel. Never in home office, in fact many consultants don't live anywhere near the office to which they are assigned.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at AlixPartners full-time
Pros – 1. Free Snacks
2. Free Food
3. Computer equipment
4. Corporate Amex Platinum - with that comes great perks when traveling
Cons – 1. No one team atmosphere, every practice operates differently.
2. Annual review is a complete joke, you can have a stellar year but if you are not buddy buddy with an MD. Forget about the promotion
3. Boy's club atmosphere
4. Work/Life balance doesn't exist
Advice to Senior Management – Go back to the values that Mr. Jay Alix believed in and make it a great company. Have a real formal process to review employee performance. Have an upward feedback program.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at AlixPartners
Pros – Great brand name recognition in the relevant industries and market segments; it started out as a turnaround firm but has branched out to other areas, including financial advisory services (FAS). However, at its core it's still a turnaround/restructuring firm; it continues to have excellent brand name recognition in this particular segment. Within FAS the corporate investigation practice also has done well and is growing rapidly. The compensation system is good, particularly one is willing to put in long hours. The firm has very good future prospects and likely to benefit greatly in the recessionary environment where many firms/industries are looking for performance improvement and turnaround services.
Cons – Certain practice areas have little work-life balance; poor communication from management. It is extremely turnaround-service centric and the leadership shows little respect or recognition to the accomplishments of other practice areas.
Advice to Senior Management – Be more encouraginf of good performance; provide regular feedbacks; open clear communication channels with employees
