    Diamond is an exceptional technology consulting firm with top notch talent and an equally impressive client list.

    Principal Consultant (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsChallenging work, uber-smart colleagues, great benefits, good culture, brand name clients, top tier b-school talent, great pre-MBA programs

    Conssome of the partners can be amazingly arrogant and even verbally abusive at times - makes already challenging projects more difficult to execute.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of some of the old "tenured" partners who people can't stand to work with. These individuals are well known throughout the firm.

    A good place to work overall - now an independent part of PwC, be ready to handle some politics

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsCompensation, Some of the smartest people to work with, very often good projects. You learn a lot within a short period of time working here.

    ConsIf you do good, news will travel fast. If you somehow are perceived to do badly,due to reasons within or outside of your control, news travels like wildfire. And bad news sticks on for a long time and you get very few second chances.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees with a little more respect and ensure that promotions are a little more transparent.

    A dynamic place, bright people, good compensation, great benefits, and up or out policy.

    Principal Consultant (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGood compensation. Excellent benefits. You know what your peers make - compensation is dictated by level, not by shady negotiations. Plenty of opportunities for advancement.

    ConsPoor work life balance. Expectations that you will do firm work on top of a 40-hour client work week. Up or out policy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure the company remains as an independent business unit within PwC. Otherwise it will completely lose its identity and its people will leave.

    Review

    Senior Associate (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe firm has a great set of people, provides varied project opportunities if you are not unucky enough to get staffed on a never ending project, adequate face time with senior people in leading firms.

    ConsLack of transparency in the review process. Copensation is tied to levels and not to review performance. Work life balance can sometimes go for a toss.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to be more open and forthcoming in their communications. Diamond is a small firm and transparency and communication needs to be its strongest points. Also, invest in training people

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
