    Rewarding job, with good team work, and leadership who care

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) McLean, VA

    ProsThe company was focused on delivering projects within clients' objectives, and consultants' performance were rated based primarily on their projects. Consultants had the necessary toolsets such as project methdologies, to perform their work delivery. The leadership in the earlier stages of my employment rewarded employees and shared the organizational profits; however, towards the timeframe prior to the acquisition, the focus changed.

    ConsConsulting rates were on the high side, when bids occurred; therefore, the success rate of proposals were on the low side. Unfortunately, this contributed to the downfall of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more competitive in performing business development, and extend the capabilities of the each practice, in order to create a more definite set of differentiators.

    A long strange trip

    Executive Assistant (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat co-workers, ability to work remotely, individual teams worked very well together and were a tight knit group. Company meetings were always interesting events.

    ConsPoor upper management team, dishonesty in the information they communicated to the employees regarding the state of the business. Repeatedly told everyone that we were not going to go bankrupt or be sold, when in fact, they were planning to bankrupt the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsulting firms should always be privately held organizations

    Disorganized large business that was too segmented

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) McLean, VA

    ProsVery fair compensation--it was really how well you played the salary negotations.
    You could easily have a strong work-life balance here.

    ConsVery disorganized company. Several tools and methodologies were inconsistent. No valuable training provided aside from an orientation titled "BearingPoint Beginnings", which was general business tactics on being presentable, making a good impression, and how contracting operates.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecruit strong middle management and project leads who can be impactful on their project teams and build up a consistent corporate culture.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
