This is a profit only oriented firm.

Interim Leader (Current Employee)
Lenexa, KS

ProsThe net pay is appropriate.

ConsThe senior management will say or do almost anything to secure contracts/increase profits. Values driven, long and short term outcomes are collateral damage. Helping clients achieve sustainable, mission driven success, building the capability of the firm and the field, or engaging and fully utilizing their own workforce are not priorities.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo become trusted advisers you must behave in a trustworthy manner. This begins with how you treat your own employees. They are not enemies to be "controlled" but rather assets to be engaged, mined, and motivated. Have you examined your attrition rate? Have you looked at your competition? What do you bring to the table that other newer, more innovative firms are not bringing along with so much more. It is too bad, you have all the ingredients for success.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
