    I worked at Spectrum Value Partners

    Pros

    Wages aligned to management consulting standards
    Good benefits (company car, top health care plan)
    Very informal and easy-going interpersonal culture

    Cons

    Client base extremely concentrated in a few companies, imparing opportunities to diversity experience
    Extremely concentrated in the telecom industry
    Lack of consistent and fact based feedback during performance appraisals
    Tendency of patronage of Italian employees (specially at senior/partner level)
    Absence of structured knowledge management process for consulting practices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more serious and careful about the appraisal process
    Treat non-Italian employees fairly, especially in offices outside Italy

    Pros

    Interesting clients and challenging engagements, as is the case with any management consulting firm

    Cons

    Poor culture and attitude towards staff (morale is low and has been for a while)
    In trying to improve profit Partners under price engagements (to win deals) and make teams work very long hours to make the commitments/deadlines

    SVP of old died when Value Partners took over (the mass exodus was incredible and last 18 months)
