    Pros

    Family culture, great work/ life balance, top quality service and research content, extremely intelligent teams on both the consulting and research side. Easy access to top leadership with open door policy. While this is a small firm, they offer great benefits such as generous annual flex credits to alleviate the cost of health insurance or as a cash bonus. Executive leadership is open and transparent on the state of the company, holding quarterly town halls and encouraging questions. Competitive salaries and compensation.

    Cons

    Research division is growing rapidly over the last few years and it's causing bandwidth issues. There remains somewhat of a disconnect between the consultants and sales team on the research side. When a research opportunity comes up in a consulting engagement, the consultant will bypass the research client director for the account and go directly to the research analysts. However, when the opposite occurs, a consulting opportunity surfaces in a research relationship, the client director directly involves the appropriate consultant. It appears to often be a one-way relationship.

    Advice to Management

    Create opportunities such as an annual social event to mingle both the consulting and research side. The better they get to know each other, the better the opportunity to build a relationship of trust and collaboration.

    Pros

    Performance-based yet caring culture. Smartest people ever. Pushing the envelope in a young industry. The Everest leadership strives to see what's happening in the industry and help its clients make wise business decisions. That carries over to the company itself. It has managed growth well and maintained its original, core values. Leadership also appreciates the value of telecommuting.

    Cons

    Lots of travel, which is fine if you like exploration but gets old when you miss family and friends. Can be competitive...although usually supportive. Sometimes the owners make decisions based on dollars and sense but don't take other things into account that would balance the equation.

    Pros

    Very strong people, very highly ethical, great internal resources to provide content to clients. A collegial atmosphere where everyone is willing to support and help.

    Cons

    The only con for Everest Group is that they have a limited pipeline, and at times the are in need of work. They have a need to improve their business development efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the strong ethical standards; the internal honesty is important. Some improvement in increasing networking and business developments efforts would b help.

    Pros

    It has an open culture; even entry level consultants have easy access to top management. The firm offers opportunity for rapid growth. Being a small consulting firm offering advisory services to senior management, junior consultants too get access to client executives very early on in their career compared to opportunities in larger consulting organizations. There is less of hierarchy and bureaucracy within the firm.

    Cons

    Limited breadth of service offerings limits opportunity for consultants who may seek to broaden one's work experience. In a large firm, there are many branches of services and consultants may be able to jump from one to the next. This may not be possible at this firm.
    The down side of any smaller firm is that it has limited infrastructure and resources as compared to the bigger consulting firms; but that is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in bring the best talent to the firm,
