Pros

Lots of resources and help, but only if you are "on the right track" and are liked and one of the "club". This "club" has nothing to do with rank, looks, gender or race, it is all about selling your soul. You sell it, you're in the club.

Cons

See "Pros" above, but basically you need to expect to put in 15+ good years just to get the "opportunity" to discuss becoming a partner/principal. Seems nice, but the price is very high.

Advice to Management

Cronyism, favoritism and cliques are not eradicated by rolling out a new partner path or a new bonus system. The culture is poisonous.

    Pros

    Leadership / partners generally care, are active in your career growth and promote teamwork. Culture generally is one of teaming and mutual advancement. Highly recommended for folks to either start or continue their career! The Business Advisor Program is fantastic for college grads.

    Cons

    As with all firms, some bad apples in leadership who look out for themselves, are quick to blame others and take credit for all successes. Having experience at a few large consulting firms, this is par for the course. Unfortunately, a lot of your success can depend on luck - who you get along with, who you've had a chance to work with, whether your styles match

    Advice to Management

    Growth is great, but don't relax hiring standards! Some hires have looked great on paper but have turned out to be huge duds. Figure out a better way to weed them out during the hiring process - standardization of hiring practices among sub service lines would be a start...

    Pros

    -get a lot of exposure
    -great learning environment
    -people are great to work with and supportive
    -

    Cons

    - constant turnover can lead to increased workload
    - they're not too good about getting rid of people that are hurting the brand name

    Advice to Management

    - over compensate for forecasted for turnover so that current employees do not get burnt out and leave (which causes forecasted turnover to be inaccurate)
