    Pros

    The working environment was good there and there was a bunch of projects to get more experience and exposure

    Cons

    The empire building spirit was a bit much between MDs. Consultants had t make sure they did not burn any bridges by jumping on other projects for another practice or somethings

    Advice to Management

    Management did try to grow to fast which i think hurt in the long run. MDs need to be closely managed so they do not hurt the reputation of the company.

    Pros

    First two weeks, before assigned to a project, learned new skills benefitting clients and colleagues and applicable to next employment.

    Cons

    Very controlling, conniving company management at client site.

    Advice to Management

    Left in 2007, not 2011. (2007 wasn't an option in the dropdown above.) Company went bankrupt in 2009.

    Pros

    Because of KPMG's solid reputation, BearingPoint didn't have to prove itself as a viable vendor to buyers of Management Consulting services and Systems Integration services. Entrepreneurial culture allowed for, and supported, development of new service offerings.

    Cons

    BearingPoint executives failed to understand that, by going public, the financial performance expectations/demands of Wall Street would be significantly different from the financial performance expectations of Partners. Horrible internal systems prevented reliable monitoring of financial performance at all levels - from the individual project level to the overall firm level.

    Advice to Management

    BearingPoint went bankrupt so there's no one to give advice to.
