Point B is full of unqualified people

Senior Associate (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsIf you don't have much talent, yet can spin doctor well, this is the place for you. Looks matter more than substance.

ConsI suspect that most glowing reports here are by people in recruiting and HR. It is encouraged to spin doctor and be deceptive and many in management have no background in what they are sent to deal with at the client. However, they have the "look." The smooth car salesman appearance. That's all that matters here. The spin, the talk, and taking credit where none is due. Having worked in other consulting firms, I can't believe the amount of fluff. The only reason they sell at all is due to college connections and with competition as it is with companies who actually have substantive people, I can't imagine this is sustainable.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo you know how people actually get hired at Point B? It is getting the rep for fluffy work in the Seattle area.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
