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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsHigh 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 Senior ManagementTurn over, engagement, visibility for strategic projects and salary must be reviewed.

     

    A good experience.

    ProsYou 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.

    ConsLots 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.

    Disappointment

    Consultant (Former Employee)

    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 Senior ManagementWell... 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

    ProsLearning about different industries and management solutions.

    ConsThe balance with personal life is not good.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think the Meritocracy system of INDG is not efficient. The company should analyze the workers in another way.
