    I have been working at Alvarez & Marsal full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Most of the people are hardworking and driven. There are some who are truly smart and entrepreneurial, but they are a very small minority.

    Cons

    Company does not consistently recruit at a high level. Don't know how to retain and develop the good employees. Quality of leadership varies greatly. Markets themselves as world class company, but staff is not always up to par and internal processes and systems are twentieth century.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk! Practice what you preach. Need to better compensate, develop and retain top tier employees (management believes they do, but they're out of touch with the marketplace), especially when travel can be as much as 90%. Being a service provider, company needs to focus on its people first and foremost!

    I have been working at Alvarez & Marsal full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people make all the difference here - extremely intelligent, dedicated teams with years of expertise. Low egos (mostly) all around. Very entrepreneurial. Really low turnover.

    Cons

    Low caliber office decor. Departments are very silo-ed and it makes it difficult to work across business units. Low turnover limits growth opportunity for some.
