    Pros

    Truly diverse workforce, open feedback with senior leadership, people-friendly, values honesty and collaborative work culture. Yearly performance reviews are fair & realistic.

    Cons

    Performance Expectations are very high but compensation is slightly lower than comparable firms. Constant travel wears the individual down eventually. Rotation between client-facing and internal roles is not clearly defined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the variable compensation to match the true annual performance of the employee - don't match it with the normalized performance rating

    Pros

    They have unlimited Sick Days and some leadership folks are really good. Growth seems very good if you know the right people.

    Cons

    The office culture is very bad. The people talk behind each other's back. Clearly the people groomed in the company have signature culture of talking behind people. Very little respect for women.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more action on the culture,

    Pros

    Company is doing well. Interesting work and the people are not hyper-aggressive. I like that I am left alone to run my engagements. There is a caring aspect to the company, which I have rarely seen in large companies. But I have seen multiple instances where people with personal stuff are supported. This is part of the culture.

    Cons

    The back office tools (expense reports, purchasing, etc) are really poor. HR systems are just so-so. The company does not grow great managers.

    You will get excellent opportunities if you know people within the company. Also, senior management is ready to listen to people.

    Compensation is not one of the best
    Investment on sales is not the best

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please invest in getting more clients and developing IP

    Pros

    Great company to learn new technologies, work with bright people from various backgrounds, training opportunities are good, projects are good as long as travel is not a problem

    Cons

    Work life balance is not the best, upward career management needs improvement, travel could be a problem in the long run, so its good to be aware that its important to be a road warrior

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With new technologies like video chat, it would be good to look at changing the 3-4-5 consulting workweek.
