    Current Employee - Senior Business Consultant in Houston, TX

    I have been working at MRE Consulting full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Company has a very flat organizational structure. It's a very collaborative atmosphere and there is no "dog eat dog" mentality
    - A true meritocracy. MRE pays based on how hard you work and how much value you bring to the firm.
    - Defined career path. Getting to the next level of promotion is based on published metrics
    - Incredibly smart employees. MRE has some of the smartest people I've ever met
    - Opportunities abound. If you want to go into a different line of business or change your current specialty, MRE will work with you to get it done.
    - Flexible work schedule. If you need to take care of a sick child and work from home, you can do that. The same goes for any kind of family/emergency events. No questions asked.
    - Family environment. Everybody knows who everybody is and they get along.

    Cons

    - Company is very methodical about its growth and not particularly aggressive. Sometimes this is advantageous and sometimes this is a detriment.
    - Some travel may be required of consultants (could be seen as a pro or con)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Continue to focus on growth with a more aggressive approach

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many partners and directors for a small company. Too many cooks in the kitchen.

    Small company, great culture with large clients

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    - Good culture that cares about it's employees. There are happy hours and networking events to help you meet your colleagues
    - Colleagues are very willing to share knowledge and assist
    - Directors are very encouraging of pursuing certifications and professional development
    - Strong Young Professionals Group
    - Excellent health insurance, but dental and vision are mediocre.
     - I heard bonuses are excellent (supposedly in lieu of 401K matching) and come every 6 months, but I haven't been here long enough to receive one
    - If you are bored with a project or want to pursue a different type of work, MRE will work with you to find a new one.

    Cons

    - Hours can be long (however, this is pretty much the nature of consulting, so not unique to MRE)
    - No 401K Matching
    - only 8 or 9 holidays instead of 10 at other companies
    - Required to sign document for additional year of employment if MRE pays for training. - Not very friendly...If this was for a degree such as an MBA, I can understand, but not so much for a training class.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Training Agreement form is petty for a 1 week training class and should be removed for training under a certain dollar amount.
