Great company with a major downside.

Junior Consultant (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsThe flexibility to work from home and from any city is a great advantage. This is huge from a savings point of view as well as to balance work/life balance. The bosses are very supportive and understanding of you and your family situations. This makes it easier to relate and mention any thing to them. The perks are extremely good and the company is very nice in giving whatever is needed without asking questions. The important thing here is the word "asking". This shows that the company knows what an employee needs and therefore reduces severe time and uncomfortable situations.

ConsProfessional growth is very limited due to less jobs at the top. I know employees who have worked for almost 5 years in the same position. This is a serious issue as it leads to low morale and hence less productivity.

Secondly, as we are in a very niche segment, knowledge cannot be transferred to any other company. This is a major hindrance because for any reason if someone wants to leave, getting a job makes it extremely difficult.

Thirdly, training provided is very limited as everyone is extremely busy. all new employees are expected to jump in and learn on the job.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease create a system for promoting employees and setup milestones if needed.
