    Entry Level

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAmazing 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work. I want to be great and kick ass!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    One of the best small consulting firms in the country.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat culture and work life balance.

    ConsLack 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.

    Good stopping point when leaving bigger firms

    Consultant (Former Employee) Dulles, VA

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsType 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 Senior ManagementGive up small slice of pie to grow the whole pie bigger

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Get drunk on the job

    Principal (Current Employee) McLean, VA

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

    ConsSalary 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 Senior ManagementAvoid visible hangovers in all hands meetings; fix the end of year review process

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    What's Not to Like?

    Principal (Current Employee) Dulles, VA

    ProsSupportive 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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementPretty 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

    Principal (Former Employee) McLean, VA

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

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

     

    Great People

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWorked 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.

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