I have been working at BearingPoint

Pros

variety of different projects to work on, challenging opportunities with diddifcult clients that help you build patience and tolerance

Cons

the company is floundering and the high talent in management has left for other companies. That leave teh good old boys to run the accounts, engagement teams, sectors, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop managing presence and start managing productivity.

    Pros

    Diverse client base and projects spaning broad industries. BearingPoint is a large, global consulting firm with over 15,000 employees in NA, EMEA and APAC that covers about every industry, it's conceivable that you can get to work on projects that have different flavors if you stick around long enough and are lucky. However, you need to manage it proactively, because you don't want to get piegon-holed to do one thing over and over again.

    Cons

    Because the P&L is managed by the industry group, the management consulting usually doesn't get the first pick on project staffing. Thus, when plum projectsare scarce, you may end up in an unpleasant situation if you're in management consulting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the act together. Tell people what you intended to do and do it. Don't tell us one thing and do something else.
