I worked at AlixPartners full-time

Pros

1. Free Snacks
2. Free Food
3. Computer equipment
4. Corporate Amex Platinum - with that comes great perks when traveling

Cons

1. No one team atmosphere, every practice operates differently.
2. Annual review is a complete joke, you can have a stellar year but if you are not buddy buddy with an MD. Forget about the promotion
3. Boy's club atmosphere
4. Work/Life balance doesn't exist

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to the values that Mr. Jay Alix believed in and make it a great company. Have a real formal process to review employee performance. Have an upward feedback program.

    I worked at AlixPartners full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The firm has a great reputation in the industry. The client delivery people are very good. Good place to start your career in restructuring.

    Cons

    There is very little room for advancement beyond the director level and there are a lot of director level employees. Interim management opportunities primarily go to managing directors.

    I have been working at AlixPartners full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great colleagues and work experience. Small enough that it is easy to build an informal network. Bill actual hours so utilization is really high for those who are staffed.

    Cons

    Intense working experience, extremely high expectations, and lots of travel. Never in home office, in fact many consultants don't live anywhere near the office to which they are assigned.
