Pros

Big clients, projects and smart people. Great name on the resume and for someone starting out in their career.

Cons

Huge company so you have to make your own path and if you are not one of the highly valued consultants (mainly Associate Partners or Senior Managing Consultants) you can get lost in the shuffle and not compensated for the value you bring the organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on people development at the lower levels, hold managers accountable for their people's development

    Current Employee - Strategy Programs Manager in Somers, NY

    Pros

    Challenging roles, smart people and fast pace of change. Opportunity to do almost anything you are able. Very flexible work environment and employees are treated like adults. Just get the work done.

    Cons

    Challenging business environment and low understanding of our services in the marketplace. Distributed workforce can sometimes require focus to ensure accomplishments are communicated and understood by those who need to know. Global roles can require bi-modal days (calls in early morning or later in evening).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More clear communication to marketplace about the services we offer clients and the people/skills we need to help.

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance; many employees are able to work from home.

    Cons

    Global resourcing is leading to feelings of low job security for US employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The trend toward global resourcing, combined with the lack of pay increases for most IGS employees this year, is beginning to cause valuable US employees to feel that their value to the company is not being recognized and that their jobs may not be secure. Recently, some of the best employees in my area have left IGS for positions that have greater potential for growth and recognition.
