    Pros

    Everyone you work with is smart, reliable, and fun. The way management describes the culture and core values during the interview process is not just to attract new hires, it is truly how the company operates. Also, the transparency and approachability of leadership is absolutely amazing.

    Cons

    You may be put on a project outside of your comfort zone from time to time but any necessary help is always available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up everything you are doing!

    Pros

    It is a young and exciting company. It is only three years old - so you have the chance to make a huge impact on the trajectory of the firm. The vibe is great - - the leadership of the firm really emphasizes the four core values - which is always top of mind. There are many committees - some social, some philanthropic, some work related that you can get involved in to have fun and/or grow the firm.

    It is also fun as the firm branches out from its first early anchor clients to new clients in and around the DC region and beyond. The founders of the firm are involved on a day to day basis - which makes a huge difference.

    If you are looking for a challenge in an environment that is fast paced, fun and empowering - this is a good choice.

    Cons

    A young / smaller company may not be a right fit for everyone. Assignments tend to change as the projects come and go and the firm shifts priorities. You need to be open and willing to change and a bit of uncertainty - but that is the fun part if you have the right mind set.

    Like any rapidly growing company, the infrastructure at times has a hard time keeping up with the growth. Although at times that can be frustrating compared to a big firm where there are whole departments of infrastructure (marketing, IT, HR) that can help you. CrossCountry will get there - but you need to be willing to roll with it as the firms trajectory goes up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the impact of training and professional development as the firm scales. It is a great culture - but as the firm grows you will need to interact with us in different ways.

    Pros

    CrossCountry has definitely created a great work atmosphere. People take their jobs seriously but make time for each other as well. There is almost always a variety of projects in the pipeline and the leadership team is accommodating if you have a strong preference.

    Cons

    Still reworking many of the internal processes but any young company would have to do the same.

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in New York, NY

    I worked at CrossCountry Consulting as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    US Working visa paid for by the company
    Paid Overtime
    Luxury corporate housing and car rental
    Amex card for corporate expenses: O/T meals, taxis working late
    Great cities to work in (NY, Boston, Chicago, DC, San Fran, Houston, Austin)
    Management fully believe in the values & culture

    Cons

    Long hours during busy season audit
    Praise only for working long hours, not for the quality of the work or relationships built
    Last minute notice about job location
    Must be willing to relocate to any US city
    Opportunities after Big 4 program are limited to DC / Virginia.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to leave staff in the dark about visas / city locations / post contract opportunities and communicate more regularly internally with senior management so everyone is on the same page.

    Pros

    Fairly compensated. Very structured organization and mimics the pros of a Big4 organization. Respect and treat the employees well.

    Cons

    Limited consulting opportunities for senior (leadership) positions. Few clients and not much diversity of clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing the good work and add have diversity in clients (nature of work and multiple organizations).

    Pros

    Amazing group of people committed to building a firm based upon a core set of values and the best people in the market. Most people here have worked together at other companies and have been reunited at CrossCountry due to the caliber of the people and the inclusive, entreprenurial spirit of the company.

    Cons

    Still building their infrastructure to be on par with more mature companies but they are making significant investments and moving quickly. Working on balance between solutions based work and more long-term project work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    The partners are nice, the directors are not, and most of the projects they sell are more suitable for contractors or loan staff then actual consulting. Their only consulting gig is with Freddie Mac. On paper they have great values.

    Cons

    Very cliquey and they will under- reward and under-promote you if you let them get away with it. Their directors ( and MD's) really don't care about their people. The types of projects they have are not challenging.

    Doesn't Recommend
