Good place to gain professional experience

Associate (Current Employee)
Lexington, MA

ProsThe consulting business is still relatively small and growing. New associates are quickly entrusted with a lot of responsibility and early exposure a variety of projects. You can develop a range of skills in a brief period of time. People here are also very nice, laid-back, and willing to help.

ConsThe environment has traditionally been very family-oriented, and management seems to be afraid of ambitious, independent go-getters. The promotion process seems to favor those who need a helping hand. As a result, there is a lot of turnover at the lower level. Many are also unwilling to share recognition.

Advice to Senior Management- Break down the family environment. As long as management maintains that line, you will drive away any new good, intelligent, ambitious employees.

- Recognition should go down to the lowest level. A little pat on the back or a simple "good job" goes a long way.
