I worked at Alliance Consulting

Pros

Small firm gives you the opportunity to interact with senior management (both internally and at client) from day one, and fosters a collaborative and entrepreneurial environment

Benefits and compensation are competitive

Wide variety of cases, lots of opportunities to learn

Cons

Training is almost nonexistent, if you're not a self-starter, look elsewhere or you'll drown. Seriously.

Be prepared to cancel plans, vacations, etc. - at the associate level, you're expected to sacrifice personal life per the partners' and clients' needs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talk to each other more - junior staff is sometimes criticized for not being communicative enough with partners but the partners don't seem to communicate with each other much, which sort of sets that tone.

    A mixed bag! Some great people and a lot of talent, coupled by huge egos and Autocratic management.

    I worked at Alliance Consulting full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Intelligent team from leadership down, entire org was talented, capable and intelligent. All Ivy leaguers, well connected, strong VC support. Some unique IP in the life sciences area, and the rest was burgeoning practices that existed primarily as a function of 1 or 2 individuals who were SMEs in a particular domain. When I was there (keep in mind- 10 years ago) they were struggling to mirror the success they had found in the life sciences domain in other areas- offshore Dev, financial services- regulation and surveillance, manufacturing and distribution, etc

    Cons

    Autocratic Management- by definition. Almost everyone else on the leadership team was more concerned with managing up than managing and growing the customer relationships, employees and the business. It was almost unheard of to challenge the leadership team. Total boys club. A handful of truly great managers and leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It has been a long time so I presume that any advice wouldn't be valid. It would have been- get out of your offices, go out to your customers, go on sales meetings, spend time with your employees and clients and listen to what is happening (good and bad) in your own company and in the market.
