    Great place to work. Dont stay for long if this is your first job. (They wont pay you)

    Senior Systems Analyst (Current Employee) Springfield, VA

    ProsThe 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    BearingPoint, a great company to work for.

    Great Place to Start a Consulting Career But...

    Business Consultant (Current Employee) Springfield, VA

    ProsExcellent 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.

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

    BE is a solid company that can be a lot better

    Business Consultant (Current Employee) Springfield, VA

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsSome 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 Senior ManagementI 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
