    I worked at BearingPoint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - For a consulting firm, the work/life balance was pretty good, even if it could vary from an assignment to another. - Moreover, you can find smart people to work with

    Cons

    - Some assignments are not that exciting and can be for a very long period of time (more than a year) - Difficult to make the difference (in terms of salary and promotions) even if you are viewed as a rock start

    Advice to Management

    - Reward exceptional performance instead of trying to buy social peace - Invest in your best-in-class employees

    Si vous avez besoin de gens pour vous materner, le bureau de Paris n'est pas fait pour vous.

    If you need people to babysit you, the Paris Office is not for you.

    Pros

    Hypercube est une technologie très intéressante qui permet aux clients de déterminer les causes de phénomènes très complexes. Il est très enthousiasmant de travailler pour une telle équipe grâce aux nombreuses applications. Il peut être utilisé par exempl

    Hypercube is a very interesting technology that enables customers to determine causes for very complex phenomenon. Working in such a team is exciting because of the numerous applications it can have: for example, it can be used to have a better understanding of churn in telecom or to reduce the default rate in industrial production. In R&D specifically, even though the technology, there is still some work to do, especially in the software developpment.

    Cons

    Hypercube pourrait être mieux intégré à BearingPoint: c'est une petite entreprise au sein de BearingPoint qui comporte de nombreux désavantages des petites sociétés.

    Hypercube could benefit from a better integration in BearingPoint: it is a little company inside BearingPoint that shares many drawbacks of small companies.

    Advice to Management

    Les dirigeants d'Hypercube devraient faire plus confiance à leurs collègues, mieux écouter ce qu'ils ont à dire et tenter d'être plus clairs dans leurs attentes. Rien à dire sur les autres managers de BearingPoint.

    The upper management of Hypercube should trust more his colleagues, listen more to what is said and try to be clearer in his expectations. Nothing to say about the other manager at BearingPoint.
