    Company with good prospects and an interesting Go-to-Market proposition

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Edison, NJ

    Pros- Above average compensation
    - Excellent relationships with C-level clients in marquee firms in the life sciences and financial services industries;
    - Increasing penetration across client's business lifecycle including opportunities to shape business, operations and technical strategies at the enterprise level;
    - An appreciation for the need to bring in fresh talent at both the consultant and management levels;
    - A evolving understanding that the firm's services portfolio needs to expand

    ConsMost of the downside of working with the firm is typical of boutique consulting firms:
    - Increased vulnerability to market downturns;
    - Minimal mentoring and guidance - particularly at lower levels;
    - Limited career development.

    Advice to Senior Management- Be less risk adverse with new client prospecting and diversify client portfolio;
    - Implement operational processes/communications that share information across accounts;
    - Be more aggressive about expanding the service portfolio

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Interesting work, good pay, a bit of growing to do

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe pay is better than most small firms. decent work life balance. Interesting work with clients that want our input. Steady growth outlook for the next 12 months. Solutions are provided not just body's to work the duration of a contract.

    ConsAs with any small company communication could use some improvement. Controlled and smart growth is hard and with that comes the perception of body shop.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate opportunities for internal folks to contribute more. Your employees can help shape the companies future, let them help growth not just in sales but in other areas. Communicate more regularly, we want to hear from you... good, bad or nothing, its key to staying connected to the firm.

    If you need a job, take the job and keep looking. Otherwise, don't bother.

    Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsIt is a job ?

    ConsSenior management is sloppy and ignorant; evening meetings; lack of input by staff; body shop with blinders on

    Worst career decision I ever made

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsThey pay well for a small company

    ConsThe two partners are awful, full of themselves, untrustworthy

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork with the team and not against them. Stop using your company to employ your wife and support your golfing habit

    Great pay, but comes at a price

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsOffers great compensation and very "flashy" internal gatherings (upscale dinners, etc.). Has many big-name clients with opportunities to work alongside upper management of major corporations. Is also a very small company so it's easy to network internally.

    ConsFirm is basically run by the two partners with little or no input from employees. If a project goes well, the partners are quick to take credit, while if a client is dissatisfied, the team members are immediately to blame. There is no "bench" at this firm, meaning when client prospects are bleak terminations occur immediately and then new hires are made later when contracts are signed. There is no diversity here and the small size of the company leads to some questionable HR practices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you have no respect for your employees, they will have no respect for you. Rather than firing people who earn you money, maybe you should remove your own wives from the payroll..

    The pitch is management consulting - the reality is contracting with compulsory weekend/evening company meetings

    Management Consultant (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsExcellent compensation; very competent seasoned leadership; about 20% the employees are actually quite talented.

    ConsThe level of politics for such a small company is completely off the charts. There is the facade of management wanting employees to be engaged, but ultimately you are expected just to do your work and keep quiet. The core methodology offerings are clever marketing, but ultimately hollow, meaningless slide ware - not real proprietary knowledge. This is not management consulting -- its 2 people who are part of an old boys network selling contracting services for people they hardly care about.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou probably know more than your employees -- but that doesn't mean you shouldn't listen to them.

    Not Really Business Consultants

    Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee)

    ProsGood pay and better than average vacation time

    Consvery cliquish within teams, lack of diversity, methodology is increasingly outdated given the modern development world, lack of in-house domain expertise, poor on-the-ground leadership, no opportunity to be creative in developing solutions for clients or work in a collaborative manner with clients

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't oversell your services to your clients or potential employees. What you offer is stenography of requirements to clients which works in a old waterfall methodology. What you don't offer are solutions to client's business needs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Body Shop that thinks they are Management Consultants

    Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsSurprisingly impressive client list for such a small company; good pay

    ConsThere is absolutely no training, professional development or career potential. This is simply a Body Shop operation that provides staff augmentation wherever they can.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide insight into the financials of the company to your employees. For such a small company, it should not be so formal, hierarchical and political.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
