Pros

Exceptional. Work life balance. Very young, upcoming firm with opportunities to gain a diverse skill set and overlap into various service lines.

Cons

Occasionally limited resources. Particularly with interoffice sharing of resources. Many opportunities to avoid "recreating the wheel" seem to be missed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work. Don't lose sight of keeping people happy and avoiding the implementation of bureaucratic practices common to the larger firms.

    Pros

    There is no set vacation policy... it's take it when you need it so you can potentially take more time than would be standard at other companies.

    Cons

    No vacation policy can lead to not being able to take any vacation. Bosses can veto your ability to book a vacation out in advance leaving you limited time to plan an actual trip. You are encouraged to take vacation when you are not on a client, which is not something you can predict far enough ahead of time to plan a trip.

    Leadership in some offices is weaker than others.

    I have been working at Alvarez & Marsal

    Pros

    1. People - some of the most talented people I have worked with in my career
    2. People - my co-workers love to give back to non-profits and the community
    3. People - they are always willing to help with work or personal related issues
    4. Challenging projects - I have been challenged on every project so far
    5. Leadership - all of the partners I have worked with our outstanding

    Cons

    You will hear this will most consulting companies, but the travel is the biggest con for me. Doing expense reports is the other complaint, so obviously it's not a big issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell more local projects and you will be able to lower attrition rates. Keep up the great work leading our company.
