Just plain awful - look elsewhere unless this is your only option.

Pros

Some of the people are absolutely awesome to work with.
Beyond that, there really isn't much to hang your hat on.

Cons

Where to begin...
- For an organization who's service is based on developing leaders, they don't practice what they preach. They are quick to cannibalize their own.
- Morale is awful. Especially in the satellite offices.
- No real onboarding. Just a bunch of things you "should" know and when you should know them by.
- Information and knowledge sharing is a complete mess. There are shared networks, private/public folders, sharepoint, and about 10 other places you have to sift through for what you need. Wildly inefficient.
- Technology is about 10 years behind. Competitors have left them in the dust. As such, margins are painstakingly low and budgets are extremely tight, yet service fees are some of the highest in the industry. Makes for a tough sell.
- Lots of double-speak and two-faced behavior. Feedback is disingenuous.
- Due to the tenure of some employees, favoritism is valued over contribution.
- Managers are looking for copies of themselves, not free thinkers who can bring change and move the organization forward.
- Ridiculously underpaid across the board makes it tough to attract the right talent.
- Lack of appropriate resources and training means terrible execution and poor client satisfaction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your act together and apply your services on your in-house resources. There are several managers, consultants, and client service reps that need to be re-evaluated.
Break down the buddy system and actually start holding people accountable for their actions (or lack of action).
Just because someone has been at a company for 15 years doesn't make them an asset nor should it make them untouchable.

Just like with feedback provided while employed there, this will be ignored. Good times!

    Pros

    They attract talented and dedicated consultants and staff; good access to clients; great opportunities to learn and deliver client services.

    Cons

    Have shifted from focus on customers to focus on cutting cost. A lot of good people left. Used to be 'the' place to be; now just one of many consulting firms doing essentially the same thing. Not much different from DDI or any of the other firms doing similar work
