    Great place to make high level client impacts

    Senior Associate (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsMuch of the work is conducted directly with senior executives at Fortune 500 and other large companies. All levels of staff interact with clients with high frequency, and junior staff in particular are given a chance to interact with senior clients. Direct access to firm leadership means you get a view into the consulting business and constant coaching on work products.

    ConsStill a small firm, and internal processes can be immature at times. Internal initiatives can be delayed at times due to hyperfocus on client work and relationships.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out an approach to faster growth while retaining current talent levels.

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

    Way better than their competition, but only if you like being a consultant

    Associate (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsThe work at Pace Harmon is complex, strategic, and delivered to senior level client executives. The teams are pretty small, mostly around 3-6 people, which means all consultants have exposure to the clients’ executives. This is pretty unique and is a real benefit over other firms – both large and boutique. I also like that everyone at the firm does client facing work making it feel far less hierarchical than other firms and giving everyone direct access to the firm’s leadership team.

    ConsIt’s a boutique firm, if you’re not interested in the type of work the firm does, you’re probably in the wrong place. Also, the focus is definitely more on client service than anything else – if you are looking for home office based work, teleworking, and limited travel then this isn’t the place for you!

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo whatever you can to maintain the quality of the people as you grow.

    not all that great, could have been

    Senior Associate (Former Employee) Vienna, VA

    ProsLots of high profile clients and projects
    Staff and Senior level practitioners among the best

    ConsLeadership is awful
    Compensation is a popularity contest and always a mystery at bonus time
    Long hours expected with little or no recognition or reward
    Leadership team disrespectful of personal (outside of work) priorities

    Advice to Senior Managementgreat idea, poor execution
    partner greed seems the motivation here, at the expense of practitioners.
    unsustainable model, real leaders have left and are looking elsewhere

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Boutique consulting firm that offers mostly challenging and rewarding work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Vienna, VA

    ProsGreat, intelligent coworkers; collegial environment; learning on the job means more responsibility is given to you from the start; very competitive compensation and benefits

    ConsAs with any small firm, things tend to be more unstructured; no brand name; projects are not consistently high value; not a ton of internal resources to leverage aside from human capital
