Growing firm with growing pains

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Stout Risius Ross, Inc.

ProsHighly entrepreneurial culture that empowers employees to improve the firm. Very client-oriented, which contributes to lasting client relationships. Open management style keeps all levels informed on a quarterly basis. High standards for analytical and technical capabilities. Strong internal information sharing to improve collective work product. Adequate-to-strong infrastructure.

ConsUpper management often makes rash senior level hiring decisions. Over time, the emphasis on growth has limited the perceived importance of internal development. Work-life balance is difficult to achieve (although that is, admittedly, emblematic of growing companies and the consulting industry in general). Origination credit has historically been focused on firm contribution, but that has trended towards a "me first" attitude amongst directors and MDs in recent years.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't sacrifice the positive characteristics of the firm (strong internal development, team attitude, cohesive culture, high technical standards, good people) in favor of growth.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
