your typical it consultancy

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at BearingPoint

Prosclear path of advancement, lots of opportunity if you work with the right people and can show your potential, lots of travel (depends on how you look at it)

Consterrible upper management, no clear direction as a company, ship has been sinking ever since kpmg separation, hard to succeed if you don't get in the right group, little to no bonuses

Advice to Senior Managementfocus on fixing financial situation, reward your employees or they will leave - they are your IP, stop coming up with new 'frameworks' when none of them work

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

ex-B{P

Director (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at BearingPoint

Prosnice people that were concerned with doing a good job, but watched their own back- it was also difficult to see the end result

Conswas kind of difficult to know the firm's direction because it was always shifting - the opportuity to make a lot of money went away

Advice to Senior Managementjust do it do it do it do it do it - they got too concerned with making it work for each other and not the client

subcontract requirement put me in a bad spot

Management Analyst (Former Employee)
Arlington, VA

I worked at BearingPoint

ProsThe pay was great (at the time) for someone at an analyst level. Free coffee at HQ.

ConsI was unknowingly put on a project as a contract requirement because I met certain guidelines. Worked exclusively with people from other companies, with no exposure to other BearingPoint colleagues. Bad fit for the position.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a little more care with where you are staffing your employees. Bad form to put someone on an island by themselves.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good consulting firm gone by the wayside

Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at BearingPoint

ProsLike all consulting firms, BearingPoint offered fantastic experience to interact with many different clients. I worked for 15-20 Fortune 500 clients during my 4 years at BearingPoint.

ConsBearingPoint unfortunately struggled with poor management communication as it worked through multiple CEOs, internal reorgs, etc. At times you worked very long hours and were under high stress conditions. The nonstop travel definitely got a little tedious at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe one thing I wish BearingPoint did more of was work to make it a fun work environment like Deloitte and other consulting firms. There were very few activities, social events, etc. in our office and I only really got to know people on my specific projects.

Now bankrupt

Senior Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at BearingPoint

ProsCamaraderie with coworkers. Good project work. Interesting and exciting clients. Got to travel the world on the companies dime. If your Managing Director was good, this was a very good place to work.

ConsMany cons. How about atrocious senior management. No consideration for work or life balance (what can you expect, its consulting). In 8 years only received one bonus.

Its now bankrupt, 'nuff said.

Advice to Senior ManagementA series of terrible CEO's and bad Senior Management lead this place into the ground. Sad. A lot of good people and good work was done at this company, only to be driven into the ground by incompetent management. This place suffered from one management debacle after another.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
