    Current Employee - Managing Consultant
    Current Employee - Managing Consultant

    Pros

    Great work/life balance
    Pretty much allowed to be yourself - good autonomy
    Reasonably varied work (sometimes)
    Can be interesting if all your ducks fall into line and you have a good team working on a good project

    Cons

    Huge administrative overhead
    Lots of incompetent people
    Perverse incentives created by poorly thought out performance metrics
    Feel like an employee ID number, not like a person
    Too much bidding for work that we want to win, not that we can do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Looking up there is little to inspire me

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
