    Pros

    I worked at Witt/Kieffer for nearly six years and overall it was a very positive experience. They are competitive from a salary and benefits standpoint and there are some truly extraordinary people that work there across the different corporate levels. If not in the consultancy (and I can't speak for that level as I was not in it), the work/life balance is also very good too.

    Cons

    While I was there, certain members of the consultancy were very difficult to work with, but really that's it.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better career mapping to people who are ambitious

    Pros

    Strong executive team, CEO is an engaged leader, very forward-thinking group.

    Cons

    Workload doesn't stop and projections continue to grow- really not a con- a good problem to have.

    Pros

    Competitive salaries, good benefit package, great holiday schedule, free pop and juice for all employees, good values

    Cons

    Certain people in Management will make life difficult for an individual if that person makes any requests that might inconvenience that individual in either the short or long term. Once that precedent is established, the employee will be ridden and given bad reviews until either resignation or dismissal.

    Advice to Management

    Don't blindly listen to Managers criticism of their employees; seek some feedback from co-workers and/or customers before making any rash decisions.

    Pros

    Small company/family feeling. Assist clients who are doing extraordinary things. Good salary/benefits.

    Cons

    Small company, so at times not a lot of room for growth.


  6. Good experience overall, personalities of partners can be challenging but most are positive

    Pros

    Good support / training in support departments; excellent people for the most part; attempt to structure what is traditionally a very partner-driven business into a more cohesive business with varied outcomes.

    Cons

    Happiness or lack thereof in the company is generally dependent on 1) your affinity for the job you're performing and 2) the particular people / partners you're assigned to or working with.

    Pros

    Es ist mittlerweilen ein junges Team vorhanden, wo die nachwachsende Generation eher eine Konnektivität entwickelt als zu der Älteren.

    Cons

    Es ist schwierig Betriebsbedingte Prozesse am Laufen zu halten, da mit unter die Einsicht für das Vorgehen fehlt.
