A growing company with great potential

Consultant (Current Employee) Portland, OR

Pros- Fantastic, experienced, smart people to work with (no junior consultants!)
- Lots of opportunities to help grow the business - both internally and externally (sales)
- Super friendly culture with lots of social events
- Low key, laid-back attitude balanced with high standards of delivery
- Great facilities for such a small company
- Highly flexible work environment - you can really live the consulting lifestyle here!
- No travel unless you want to
- Great salary and vacation
- Very hands-off management, because they only hire senior consultants they trust you to do your job, manage your client, and work with your team

Cons- Small market limits type of work and clients, which means sometimes you just have to do what you have to do!
- No junior consultants means you have to do all the dirty work too :)
- Benefits package is mediocre at best, I'm paying a lot more out of pocket
- Flexibility comes with risk - if you're on the bench you only get paid 50% of your salary
- Because it is a growing, small company - bad infrastructure (slow network, no knowledge management, very little process in place)
- Just starting to define career paths - very little career management in place so you really have to find your own way

Advice to Senior Management- A more robust process around the biz dev pipeline that leverages people who want to help could result in a more stable pipeline and improved account management
- Need some more focus on building expert communities and intellectual capital that can be shared across the nation

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
