Cons

Fast-paced growth can make it a challenge to scale fast enough and support processes and procedures to create sustainability at every level (we see this as a "high-class" problem, though it is a challenge)

    Excellent Opportunities for young techies

    Pros

    + Very bright, motivated co-workers
    + Ability to advance to management roles quickly by going "above & beyond" entry level roles
    + Interesting technology work

    Cons

    - Entry levels start at a potentially competitive salary, but salary increases are capped and insufficient
    - Mentoring program, once strong, seems to have fallen by the wayside, and it's up to employees to seek out mentors.
    - Business/strategy consulting projects are few and far between; the focus is on technology implementations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on creating a culture of openness, transparency, and interaction. Don't take the decision making process into a back room and inform the company after the fact; seek out opinions and promote discussions throughout the process.

    A growing company, a changing company

    Pros

    Working at Arcadia provides a great deal of opportunity. Entry level consultants come from great schools and backgrounds, and much of the leadership team has been with the company since it's inception. There are very few deterrents to career growth, and aggressive new hires can find themselves with a great deal of responsibility quickly if they choose to take it on. The culture is young and open, and many of the consultants are friends outside of work.

    Cons

    Like many consulting firms, the side of Arcadia seen can vary from project to project. Depending on who your client partner or project manager is, you could have a even work life balance, or none at all. The openness of the culture permits much visibility into the executive level and affects the moral of the entire firm. When leadership is uncertain, the feeling pervades the entire company, as everyone quickly becomes aware of their uncertainty, from entry level on up. Finally, Arcadia is loosely structured; career paths are fairly non-existent. If you know where you want to go with your career, you may be able to get there, but those without a clear career path in mind won't advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is good at realizing their mistakes and taking steps to correct them. There was a period when political struggles were apparent and caused a great deal of lost focus, but that appears to be past. Company Leadership should take steps to normalize culture and expectations across all project teams.
