    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.

    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.

    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.
