Pros

The culture of the company is pretty good. Work from home is a plus. Benefits are pretty comparable to other companies. Vacation/ time off is pretty good. Soon as you are either a senior consultant or higher, you get 5 weeks of sick time and/ or vacation

Cons

Promotions and salary increases are far and few. Folks on engagements are treated pretty harshly in my opinion. They are treated like as if they were step children. Even though most engagement folks obviously work in the field and at client sites, I still think that more personal involvement from their engagement managers is necessary so that they don't feel like they have been disregarded, etc.

Advice to Management

Give the folks at the bottom the adequate bonuses that they deserve so they will remain loyal too.

    Pros

    The work is good. Most of the time the people you work with are great folks committed to their work. The projects are mostly very good. New implementations are available to work for. Maintenance projects are not that many in number. My experience working with my MD was great.

    Cons

    Company is not doing great. Stock is at its worst ever. Everyone is worried about what happens next. Most people who are not on projects have been laid off. Employee morale is at its lowest ever. Most people who are still working here are now here because of Visa issues or because they cannot find a job elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate about the problems and keep employees informed.


  2. Pigs fly – with enough thrust. It’s actually a guidance problem.

    Pros

    There are many different BearingPoints - if you work in a practice which has work, it can be a great place.

    Cons

    It's totally dependent on the practice. Mine did no business development (everybody working) and when a project ended there was no work. 20 people were placed outside of the practice unit, but all of the middle management were let go.

    Projects not a career anymore..

    It's also almost impossible to see how BE can survive. It's a $7M market cap with $1B of bond debt overhanging it.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of people, whack the losers in the middle of the MD pack.
