Initially decent, but hasn't materialized as promised.

Senior Associate (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsWork-life balance is respected.
Benefits are comparable with most other consulting firms.
Great place to work if you are starting a family.
Since all the consultants are paid by the hour, part time is a major plus.
Relatively no real air travel is required, but local commuting to various client sites can be grueling.
A great bunch of people to work and socialize with when you get the chance.

ConsCliquish management tier.
Growing stratification between hourly vs. salaried.
Bonus process is not open or communicated to the consultants which leaves you wondering what is going on.
Advancement is based on who you know and seniority rather than qualifications (like many companies).
True feedback is rare.
Seattle-centric.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf growth is the mantra, look outside company for qualified C level leadership.
Realize that with no real management growth path for senior employees, the only way to advance is to leave.
Provide published bonus plan to all employees that can be tracked and measured. This can be great tool to direct behaviour.
Since Tim and Darren have left (virtually), the company direction seems confused with no real passion being communicated by the leadership.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
