    Main Brazilian management consulting firm, lead by Matheus Bandeira with 3Capital founders in the board.

    Pros

    The company is growing to markets such as EUA, Mexico, Guatemala and Europe. Offer opportunities for those who wants to work in a middle firm (Year Revenue ~150MM U$) with the opportunity to become big. Firm stimulate the consultants to apply for international MBA's and also, with the new projects around the globe, the opportunity to have a international career. Per end, the high relationship among Falconi CEO with the TOP Brazilian executives such as Jorge Paulo Lemman, Carlos Brito, Bernardo Hees, Andre Esteves, Sicupira, Marcell Telles and Gerdau family show to the market that FALCONI is running his strategy to work in the same level os the top 3 management consulting a firms.

    Cons

    High turn over (some formers consultants mention turn over result over 40% year. No visibility for the parterniship governance project that is running to define who will be the partners of the company Low balance between personal and professional life Low salaries if you compare FALCONI with the other management consultants (Among FALCONI, McKinsey, Bain and BCG don't choose Falconi! They pay less and ask for a lot)

    Advice to Management

    Turn over, engagement, visibility for strategic projects and salary must be reviewed.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn and work with intelligent experienced people. Chance to travel every week.

    Cons

    Times have changed and they still promise too much (eg: promotion in every 6 months - don't believe it!). They base everything on the employee avaliation, although the grade might be subjective and unfair. Depending on the project, you work A LOT.

    Pros

    Encouraged to learn and do things independently. Great exposure with big companies in Brazil and abroad. The company is growing a lot.

    Cons

    Some projects could not be really interesting in terms of analytical thinking. A lot of consultants are intelligent, but there not a place to meet really brilliant people.

    Advice to Management

    Benefits are just okay. There is a disruptive between what you offer to your clients and your internal processes. A great management consulting company should not have so much big administrative gaps.


  8. A good experience.

    Pros

    You get to work with highly skilled and motivated people. Networking with upper management inside clients. Benefits ( the company seems to be increasingly worried about it.) As an intern, you are able to decide on lots of stuff instead of just doing the usual operational stuff.

    Cons

    Lots of travel if you are alocated in a project out of your base. Pay is above average, but still just ok. Long hours depending on client and/or phase of the project. Slow career progression.

    I worked at FALCONI full-time

    Pros

    - Interesting methodology. - Visibility to other companies.

    Cons

    - Pay is absolutely ridiculous. - Slow career progression. - The company boasts about being a "results-oriented" consulting firm, but that's not true. In fact, project leaders are only concerned about selling/renewing projects and don't care about delivering bottom line results to clients. This happened in every project I participated. - Internal trainings are terrible..... the facilitators (INDG consultants) are definitely not prepared. - Administrative Department is pretty disorganized. I even asked myself how could INDG teach "management" to its clients when its internal processes were a real mess. - Expect to work long hours in most of the projects you will engage in (and you won't get paid for that). - When the project fails, the project leaders always resort to the same excuse: "Lack of leadership from the client". And that's not true. - Project leaders are not "leaders" at all. They're totally unprepared to manage their teams. - This is not a bad point, but a skill you must have if you want to succeed: adaptability. You'll be changing companies on a regular basis and even work on multiple projects simultaneously.

    Advice to Management

    Well... there's so much to be done... - Improvements in the career plan, salary, benefits package and so on... - Better trainings.... most of the consultants have poor knowledge on the company's methodology. - Develop real project leaders
