    Pros

    Small, close contact to higher level consultants, good projects, relaxed atmosphere, casual dress code

    Cons

    One industry can get monotonous, founder & president is not easy to work with, political tension among some employees, not much room for advancement until current management moves out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get old partners who aren't helping the company any more out of the company

    Pros

    Very smart co-workers. You get a top tier MBA resume from working at this company. Lots of high level experience to senior executives in the Automotive sector. You'll also get a real quantatitve background in the process. They will promote you quickly if you perform well and the benefits package cannot be beat. They also are loyal to their long term employees and will help you out in ways that traditional companies would never do. People here are kind, courteous, and have very high standards. If you can survive the the first year, show signs of progress, you should have a good career there.

    Cons

    Heavy travel is part of the job. The work/life balance is impacted because of that. The working experience can depend on your manager/partner. Some partners are great with feedback and support, but others are not so good. There can be some backbiting and politics, but that's the norm for every company. If you're new to consulting, it's a very tough onboarding process. The learning curve is steep and you'll find that Carlisle veterans experienced the same exact thing. Not too much support in terms of development due to the small size of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give sustained consistent feedback. Also give potential employees a better idea of what's

    Pros

    Very small company created an opportunity to learn from some very smart people when available.

    Cons

    Not enough management fostered colloaboration and information sharing. Very poor information sharing across projects except among Partners. Very small company and over 30% of employees are Partners often making work a "political minefield".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Firm relies on Partners to be sales people instead of having dedicated sales staff. Many of the Partners are not able to truly sell projects in tough environments.
