  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

- Great pay and benefits
- Great working culture (no fake fun)
- Great growth potential
- Frequent review feedback
- Interesting subject matter (to me anyway)
- Limited travel and on-site client time for better work-life balance

Cons

- The work is not easy and the hours can be tough but that is typical of the consulting world
- The focus of the company can be limiting if you are not interested in government, defense, or the industries that serve them
- Professional development is driven by projects rather than formal educational programs but that makes it easy to try out new skills and subject areas

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Never stop thinking about how to make this a better company
- Communicate more with staff on how the firm will grow over time in a tough market

    Pros

    Work can be very interesting at times, opportunities for advancement, not too much travel, great group of coworkers, tons of social events.

    Cons

    Many projects are very similar and can become tedious, more travel would be nice as would exposure outside of the defense industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management could improve downward mgmt/communication skills, otherwise keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Senior Management - Extremely committed to the company and its employees.

    Staff - A large group of very intelligent individuals from diverse backgrounds. A young staff overall with ~50-60% twenty-somethings.

    Pay and Benefits - Second to none. Avascent is very generous with its employees.

    The Job - Not at all monotonous. Can be very interesting. Constantly learning new things.

    Opportunity - Lots of room for upward growth. Management encourages employees to be entrepreneurial.

    Cons

    There are very few negatives about this firm. Generally, any headaches are directly tied to managing the ongoing growth. Avascent has consistently expanded its market share over the years, so there have been a few growing pains along the way; namely, long hours and some fits and starts with respect to strategy implementation. Neither is indicative of any red flags so long as one is not opposed to hard work and striving for high quality.
