Pros

Work on high profile assignments with top notch clients in diverse industries. Have opportunities to expand skill set and network to further develop career.

Cons

Given the consulting environment, the job is highly unpredictable. There is an unspoken expectation that work life comes before personal life in most situations.

Advice to Management

Open more communication regarding the compensation and promotion criteria. Most people are very happy with AlixPartners, but would like to have more insight about these critical issues.

    Pros

    Great brand name recognition in the relevant industries and market segments; it started out as a turnaround firm but has branched out to other areas, including financial advisory services (FAS). However, at its core it's still a turnaround/restructuring firm; it continues to have excellent brand name recognition in this particular segment. Within FAS the corporate investigation practice also has done well and is growing rapidly. The compensation system is good, particularly one is willing to put in long hours. The firm has very good future prospects and likely to benefit greatly in the recessionary environment where many firms/industries are looking for performance improvement and turnaround services.

    Cons

    Certain practice areas have little work-life balance; poor communication from management. It is extremely turnaround-service centric and the leadership shows little respect or recognition to the accomplishments of other practice areas.

    Advice to Management

    Be more encouraginf of good performance; provide regular feedbacks; open clear communication channels with employees

    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.

    Pros

    Compensation 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.

    Cons

    Career 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 Management

    Keep 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.
