Not what I expected from a large IT consulting firm.

Senior Manager (Current Employee)
Edison, NJ

ProsLearn different aspects of the practice. Flexible Travel (depends on project). Good people overall.

ConsAssociate Directors are disconnected from their direct reports.
New hires are assigned to projects with no support/guidance from management.
Management tends to be reactive vs. proactive. Can be laid off or fired with very little notice.

Advice to Senior ManagementStreamline your processes. Set obtainable goals. Lead by example and exude positivity.
Stop placing employees on a action plan without first informing them of the problem and allowing them the opportunity to correct it.
Avoid building new custom tools when out-of-the box solutions are readily available.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
