This firm is a great place to develop both market contacts and the technical and soft skills to serve them well.

Director (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at AlixPartners full-time for more than 10 years

ProsPay is good, plenty of development opportunities, and the people are better than you'll find in most organizations. Benefits are also great compared to many professional service firms.

ConsIt can be difficult to achieve work-life balance, and working project-to-project leaves the future chronically uncertain, both from a scheduling perspective and from an am-I-still-valuable perspective.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide the most accurate and updated information available to employees, as appropriate.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Senior teams who minimize PowerPoint and maximize impact

Director (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at AlixPartners full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat 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.

ConsIntense 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.

AlixPartners - A Great Place to Develop Career

Director (Current Employee)

I have been working at AlixPartners

ProsWork on high profile assignments with top notch clients in diverse industries. Have opportunities to expand skill set and network to further develop career.

ConsGiven the consulting environment, the job is highly unpredictable. There is an unspoken expectation that work life comes before personal life in most situations.

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen more communication regarding the compensation and promotion criteria. Most people are very happy with AlixPartners, but would like to have more insight about these critical issues.

Turnaround & Restructuring Services

Director (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at AlixPartners full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThe firm has a great reputation in the industry. The client delivery people are very good. Good place to start your career in restructuring.

ConsThere is very little room for advancement beyond the director level and there are a lot of director level employees. Interim management opportunities primarily go to managing directors.
