    Flawed, Just Like Any Other Company

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Consultant  in  Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Consultant in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    Great people (for the most part)
    Ability to work independently and take the lead on projects even if you're an entry level employee
    Work/life balance - again, for the most part. It's great to go home on Thursdays, get bonuses for out of town stays, etc.
    Consistent review process, strong professional development and opportunities to advance
    Doing great work for clients and making a difference

    Cons

    Compensation not competitive
    Some managing directors are incompetent and rude to lower level employees
    Managing directors can overshoot targets when trying to sell a project, create smaller budgets than necessary, etc. and the brunt falls on lower level employees to meet unrealistic expectations
    Staffing can be haphazard and makes little sense; unnecessary travel when work can easily be done at home
    No coordination between some project managers and functional team managers, duplication of work, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promote people to MD level who are obviously not competent at that level. Promotions should not be based on who you know and buddy-buddy relationships, but on the quality of your work and relationships with clients.

    Workaholics and Travel Galore!

    • Comp & Benefits

    Current Employee - Management Consulting Analyst  in  Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Management Consulting Analyst in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    Great benefits, great vacation, good pay, coworkers were super fun. Expense accounts are a plus, and the ability for some employees to live anywhere that is near an airport.

    Cons

    Workaholics, nature of the work, constant travel, micromanagement by certain supervisors, no clear chain of command due to the project nature of the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff projects correctly in order to allow for a normal workweek. Also require fewer days at the client site, if any. The majority of the work can be done just as efficiently from home, and save everyone time and expense.
