    Pros

    The name recognition of working for a company like Bearing Point is one of the biggest advantages while working at this company. The upper level management is incredible. The advanced levels of management and internal trainings are phenomenal.

    Cons

    If you lowball yourself when you start you will have to put up with a lower salary until you leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay younger people what they are worth. There is a large majority that gets stuck behind the eight ball and split after 1-2years. One can get a 20grand raise by switching jobs.

    Pros

    Work with a lot of very talented and motivated people. Everyone is very supportive of your career and really cares.

    Cons

    Just getting out of our financial issues. It causes uncertainty and with that comes high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think were doing a really good job we just need to make sure it continues and to constantly evolve.

    Pros

    Excellent place to start a career and get your feet wet within consulting. With the proper commitment and open mind, you have the ability to learn a lot and experience numerous consulting assignments. You will have the opportunity to work with intelligent people who are committed to serving the client.

    Cons

    Stock price is atrocious and embarrassing, benefits and salary are weak, the company is in a constant state of rebuilding and cost-cutting effort, you have to take charge of your professional growth, limited networking opportunities, non-existent culture, senior leadership rotation, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Finish the rebuilding process, no more "I can see the light at the end of the tunnel" speak, get rid of under-performing MDs, etc.

    I have been working at BearingPoint

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for BearingPoint is that it is an excellent place to build a consulting career and develop the skills needed to be a successful consultant. BE has a very good reputation, especially in the Public Sector, which gives employees the ability to work on a variety of projects.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides for working at BE include that the stock performance and financial state of the company effects you as an employee as your compensation (i.e. raises, bonuses) is affected and training budgets are cut along with company networking events. The culture of the company is somewhat rigid and there should be more opportunites to network and recieve training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would tell Senior Management to focus on the Financial Statement of the company, but try not to cut costs in so many areas that it causes employee dissatisfaction.
