Current Employee - Associate in Dallas, TX

I have been working at AlixPartners

Pros

Very flexible with time off and personal matters.
Excellent contract rates.
Very independent work environment, little micro-managing.
Great, respectful management.

Cons

Transition from contract to permanent position is brutal.
Little to no feedback about what to expect regarding contract.
Rate is drastically cut from contract to permanent position.
Earned bonus program is poorly structured - you actually get paid less as you work more.
Will bring you contract at a different title, then bump you down once you "convert" over to permanent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't string along contract employees after you put them through the stringent tests. If they meet all the psychological/IQ testing criteria, you should know that those type of employees do not want to have their careers strung along.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
