Alixpartners is not a bad place to work if you're part of the majority. If you're a minority, expect a challenge.

Pros

Pros...pay for overtime and better than average bonuses. Alixpartners does a decent job for a firm its size.

Cons

3 major challenges:
1. Senior leadership model embraces a stoggy old school mentality. Leadership appears extremely inflexible when it comes to change. This is a direct contradiction to the firm's most rudimentary principle.
2. The lack of diversity, especially in leadership. Top two levels of Leadership is comprised mostly of white men.
3. Alter the assessment & testing phase to incorporate the employee of 2104. Most people don't have 6-8 weeks to interview for a position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Broaden your employee and leadership base and the clients will soon follow.

    Pros

    Highly valuable experience and skill set. Projects cuts right to the heart of the matter and one really learns how to 80-20 and make decision under uncertainty. Furthermore the continuing flat economic growth in US and AlisPartner's focus as tactical cost reduction specialist bode for good exit strategies.

    Cons

    Culture is very sharp elbowed. This is not a place for the thin-skinned. It is a sink-or-swim environment with minimal support or training. Make sure you have your consulting down solid before joining AlixPartners.

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits, but money is only one part of the equation. You can move up if you play the game right and real skills and abilities are not encouraged.

    Cons

    Favoritism; a work culture that alienates minorities not from similar backgrounds; travelling schedule is not predictable and work life balance does not exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look after the needs of all members of your team, regardless of the color of their skin or their background culture.
