    I have been working at AlixPartners

    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.

    I have been working at AlixPartners full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.
