  1. Good experience

    Former Employee - Analyst in Tyson's Corner, Fairfax, VA

    I worked at BearingPoint full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good experience, exposure to many types of work and companies, projects and opportunities to perform. Work in high performance environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to get staffed on a project. Pipeline of projects was low at times. Travel if you do not wish to travel. Unclear development path at times.

    Advice to Management

    Work on keeping the project pipeline full so utilization can be kept high. Be transparent in development path and set clear expectations.

    I worked at BearingPoint full-time

    Pros

    Years of experience in a single year. This company allows you to see into several companies and systems which may otherwise take years to experience. Typically great people to work with.

    Cons

    Often times too much work specifically put on younger staff. It was not the "dream job" many think of. Veteran team members often take the easy path and hard working team members are not always rewarded, just given more work.

    Advice to Management

    Participate in more one-on-one reviews, watch out for young talent instead of burning out young talent.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were good. BearingPoint had an underdog status when competing against bigger names in the IT consulting business, which gave the organization a scrappy culture. The leadership made many good decisions when it came to employees.

    Cons

    Execution of top leadership decisions by other leaders left much to be desired. Very often, employees were bullied, guilted, or otherwise actively thwarted in efforts to balance work and personal lives. There were some truly stand-out Senior Managers and Partners, but from my interactions, they seemed to be few and far between. In the trenches, the focus seemed to be far to heavy on how much we can bill clients, instead of what benefits and solutions we could provide. Perhaps it's semantics, but what a team is directed to focus on makes a big difference.

    Advice to Management

    Find niches where the organization excels, attract and retain the best people in those areas, and ensure that the people who deliver the work have everything they need to thrill the client.

    I worked at BearingPoint full-time

    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

    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.
