    Pros

    Everyone you meet at the firm is capable, interesting, smart and nice
    There is a culture of leadership & creativity so if you have an idea you are supported
    Leaders pay attention to you and your career goals
    The firm has a large philanthropy bent--including pro-bono engagements in community from time to time.
    The Account team is fantastically supportive
    The engagements are interesting - more intellectual, less staff aug

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, but the interview process is very selective, so bring your A game.
    Other firms may pay a bit more of your rate %, but it comes out pretty close, so I chose Loft9 for it's "extras" including culture and opportunity--and could not be happier with my decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing exactly what you're doing--you have created a special culture where people care about the work and each other beyond the ordinary.

    Very much committed to personal growth and development. Expanding client list and new compensation model is very exciting.

    It is a newer firm so still working out some kinks here and there but everyone is committed to making it better.

    Pros

    Associate connectedness and Collaboration.
    Providing open and continuous feedback
    Various internal and external trainings
    Lot of opportunities to get involved in firm work
    Mentorship
    Excellent Recruiting process
    Walk the talk - Exceeded my expectation when it came to Co-Delivery and Associate Development Framework.
    Firm takes a lot of effort to maintain connectedness between the associates. Events like monthly dinners/discussions, quarterly practice meetings and fun team building are excellent.
    If an associate know what he/she want, there are opportunities and open doors for discussion with leadership
    Most importantly, efficient leadership

    Cons

    Pay is lower when compared with other places.

    I have been working at Loft9 Consulting full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Loft9 is focused on each of its associates and ways to help each person grow and develop both personally and professionally. Management is very clear on their objectives and where the company is going and welcomes input and feedback from even the newest associates. The company provides a yearly stipend that can be used however an associate would like from professional seminars to rock climbing lessons. Loft9 has great people who are extremely supportive of one another.

    Cons

    Many opportunities are based at Microsoft although they are constantly working to diversify. The pay is lower than would be expected but they work to compensate employees through additional means.

    An organization that walks the talk!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA

    I have been working at Loft9 Consulting full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It's rare that you come across an organization that follows through with their offer of generous benefits, regular feedback and continuous support that Loft9 offers it's Associates. Besides the well-balanced comp/benefits package, Associates receive an annual training stipend, have access to internal training and participate in quarterly "review" with an assigned mentor from the leadership team. In addition, Associates are paired with a "Co-Delivery" partner as they embark on new client engagements. (Another team member that provides support from behind-the-scenes.)

    Cons

    Given the various work locations (Associates are located onsite with clients during engagements), it can be difficult to maintain a connectedness with your colleagues. Loft9 is diligent in providing regular opportunities for Associates to interact through monthly dinners/discussions, quarterly practice meetings and fun team building activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your team members and stay open to continuous improvements. There will be pains as we grow but if leadership can keep focus on strong culture and people development, we'll be successful!

    Depending on how involved you are in internal firm work, it can be tough to balance client workload as well. Project lengths can become long.
