Pros

Base pay is competitive and fair. Company funded parties are great (1990's WorldCom style)! A lot of motivated young people with solid academic accomplishment.

Cons

A very negative culture, and significant lack of integrity and leadership at the Managing Director level. I was shocked and appalled by the arrogance and crude behavior of some of the MD's. They manage the practice like a fraternity. Moreover, I was surprised by their overall lack of professional accomplishment and technical skill. There is little or no structure and transparency in the management of the consulting practices. There is no formula for bonuses (it's 100% discretionary) and a mostly undefined performance review process. The consulting assignments in the Higher Ed practice are insignificant and unfulfilling.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start recruiting a few senior level leaders from A.T. Kearney, Booz or BCG and build a more professional and competent core of Managing Directors and Directors. Allow for the development of a strong HR function with transparent processes that everyone relies on.

    Pros

    Their benefits package is satisfactory.

    Cons

    No guidance or professional support provided by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make management more accessible to employees. Make upper management accountable for their lack of skills instead of blaming everything that goes wrong on those in analyst positions!
