    your typical it consultancy

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    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

    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

    Now bankrupt

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    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.

    Overworked, exhausted employees with no life!!

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsOpportunity to work on different engagements and learn different systems, although most engagements in financial services are short-term, often lasting only a few months.

    ConsNo work-life balance, most partners have stay-at-home wives so no appreciation and accommodation for career women, lots of travel, lack of career growth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees like people, not machines.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Manager at BearingPoint Review

    Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsBearingPoint was a good company to work for to gain consulting experience. It also looked very good on a resume.

    ConsAs with any large company, it depended on where within the company you worked. At BearingPoint, I worked for a great group, but have very limited room for growth/advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be less artificial roadblocks to advancement within the company. Understood that the company wasn't doing well, so there was little ability to promote.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    - Crippled by the poor financial decisions of past management
    - Career growth ended with bankruptcy
    - Overly competitive within the firm
    - Doesn't encourage collaboration amongst the team

    Advice to Senior Management- You did a great job protecting the firm when it was going down. Thank you for all your effort.
