    Pros

    The pay was great (at the time) for someone at an analyst level. Free coffee at HQ.

    Cons

    I was unknowingly put on a project as a contract requirement because I met certain guidelines. Worked exclusively with people from other companies, with no exposure to other BearingPoint colleagues. Bad fit for the position.

    Advice to Management

    Take a little more care with where you are staffing your employees. Bad form to put someone on an island by themselves.

    Pros

    Pay was decent Made some good friends out of the experience Got experience at a big firm Was able to learn what I didn't want in a company.

    Cons

    Management perpetuated double standards, played favorites, and did not support you if issues arose on a project. Expectations were not communicated, yet employees were reprimanded for not meeting those expectations. Corporate culture was strange, super-competitive but without the same esteem as competitors. Extreme use of consultant-speak buzz words like "bandwidth" Struggle to advance, as I was not one of my manager's "favorites"

    Advice to Management

    get your act together and recognize that you will continue to have high attrition levels as long as you continue to treat employees this way.
