Overall it's a good firm. Join if you're a senior professional, stay away if you're a junior person and want to grow.

ProsCompensation and benefits are probably the best in the consulting world. It is hard to imagine something better. Base salary is a tad lower than other consulting firms, but the comp structure is variable, so when you put in those long hours on a project, you're rewarded immediately. This is not discretionary, there is a formula for that.
Benefits are fully covered by the firm.
Work hours are flexible and they are respectful of needed/booked time off.

ConsCareer advancement is way slower than in other firms. You could be a partner at other firm and still be a VP/manager leve al AlixPartners.
Bonuses and promotions are huge black boxes: communication on how they are calculated is non existant.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep hiring good people, but pay more attention to the professionals you already have in house. Many people are leaving because they don't feel appreciated enough.

    Great consultancy for experienced hires; known for restructuring/bankruptcy

    Associate (Current Employee)

    I have been working at AlixPartners full-time for more than a year
