    I have been working at Infinitive Consulting full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing people, top down. Everyone genuinely care for your well being as a person and as a professional. Entrepreneurial thinking is encouraged. It's up to you if you want to succeed! Great alternative to my previous role where I was just a number (granted my immediate team was great).

    If I were to run a company it would be very similar to Infinitive's approach.

    Cons

    Don't have cons right now but will update as necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. I want to be great and kick ass!

    Pros

    Great culture and work life balance.

    Cons

    Lack of structure and career path (generally a good thing) sometimes requires a degree of trust or faith that the sacrifices you are making today will pay off in the long run.

    I worked at Infinitive Consulting full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, good work-life balance, encouraged to grow professionally. Breath of fresh air after working at larger companies. Company is small enough to be flexible to individual needs. Good for entrepreneurial-minded consultants who want experience building a book of business.

    Cons

    Type of work done is not focused enough. Sometimes will take any project that comes along to keep people staffed. Consultants sometimes stuck in same role for extended period. Comp plan has a lot of sticks to keep you there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give up small slice of pie to grow the whole pie bigger

    Pros

    Get drunk on the company's dime, local event sponsorship

    Cons

    Salary was lower than peers, lay off then restaff two months later, hard work no reward at year end if your coach is no good

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid visible hangovers in all hands meetings; fix the end of year review process

    I have been working at Infinitive Consulting

    Pros

    Supportive culture which provides a lot of opportunities for professional growth and development. Great client base with interesting and important projects plus a lot of company activities (e.g., Infiniday, Gold Cup) which create a strong sense of teamwork and bonding.

    Leadership development program sets the foundation for promotion from within.

    Overall, not a surprise that Infinitive continues to be ranked as one of the best small consulting firms to work for.

    Cons

    The work is somewhat narrow, so if you don't have a skillset that can be molded in different directions you can find yourself on the bench and possibly out of a job. Also, probably a better place to come in as a junior-to-mid level professional since the management team is already a bit crowded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pretty much keep on doing what you have been doing to get where you are. The culture begets success and keeps everyone engaged. Why change a good thing?

    Small firm with challenges that could go places

    Former Employee - Principal in McLean, VA

    I worked at Infinitive Consulting

    Pros

    Open workplace, Opportunity for professional development, access to a wealth of consulting experience

    Cons

    Small firm so the consultants are required to hustle for clients/ extensions. Usually a lot of downtime between engagements and bench time requires resources to be in the office with nothing to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management more open to ideas and suggestions from consulting staff.

    Great People

    I worked at Infinitive Consulting

    Pros

    Worked with them for a short period of time, but had a great experience. They care about their employees and want to make sure they are involved and happy. Very smart people that love to get together and have a good time. Salaries are competitive and bonus system is good.

    Cons

    People by themselves on staff augmentation engagements can feel left out. Company is getting more and more specialized. They need to think about long-term career plans when they hire people for specific specialized assignments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you are doing, but don't be so reactionary in your hiring.
