I have been working at Phase One Consulting Group full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Leadership is committed to recruiting and retaining talented professionals, a rare commodity in government consulting

Young at heart company culture that rewards working and playing hard

Leadership that is willing to take a chance on forward thinkers that are passionate about their respective areas of expertise

Opportunities to work across a wide range of disciplines, without having to work in a massive company where you are just a number

Leadership opportunities for people that are willing to step up and lead, regardless of their age or experience

Direct correlation between results and reward driven by five generous partners and their leadership team that are personally vested in growing without sacrificing culture

Cons

A few staff members that do just enough to get by and form a sense of entitlement - most government "consulting" firms are filled with these types, however there tends to be more contrast at Phase One.

Team cultures can vary from one client site to another.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please stand by your commitment to continue to invest in growing this exceptional family that I am proud to be a part of.

    Pros

    -Keg in the breakroom
    -Occasional catered food in breakroom

    Cons

    -Lack of good leadership
    -Management is full of inexperienced people who try to pass blame onto subordinates when problems occur
    -Employee turnover is extremely high (5 CFO's in the past 2 years)
    -Empty promises of career growth
    -No raise in 2 years of working at the company
    -Partners and Directors are oblivious to what's actually going on and are not open to new ideas, preventing growth
    -The employees who have lasted the longest are either family or friends of the partners, and they hardly are ever working (they joke about how they don't ever do work and take naps in the parking garage) yet they are highly paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ironically you are paid to consult other's in how to improve their businesses, however it is phase one that needs the improvement.

    Pros

    - Growing company with still a small company feel
    - Company is well diversified across multiple Federal agencies
    - Investments in employees and employee programs is increasing

    Cons

    - Need to allow for more junior roles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in mid-level employees so that they can be the future leaders. Communicate our wins more frequently help encourage more cross-project collaboration.
