    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Las Vegas, NV

    I worked at XRoads Solutions as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoyed the challenge and staying in hotels

    Cons

    Bankruptcy cases can lead to delays in payment. I found myself in situations in which I was living off of expense report reimbursements.

    IC agreeement was unfavorably loaded towards the consultant. In the end some of the conditons were relaxed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    line up more cases and encourage assistance in pitching them

    I worked at XRoads Solutions full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Set your own direction, minimal formality and oversight. May be a good opportunity for highly connected individual performers who have their own network of support professionals.

    Cons

    You are on your own. Little collaboration between principal and practice areas. Absence of middle level and junior staff to provide continuity, research and analysis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incent collaboration and knowledge sharing.
    Attract and retain junior resources to better enable principals to grow the business.

    I worked at XRoads Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Initially offered an impressive array of professional services- restructuring, litigation valuation, performance improvement, corporate finance, case management, but due to departures and slowing business, was forced to shut down most of these and attempt to be sold to another firm

    Cons

    Made some questionable senior hires
    Pay was probably on the low side for the industry, particularly in regards to bonus pay

    Pros

    No two days are ever the same; good salary structure

    Cons

    If you're not on the inside, you're on the bench as a consultant. Operations consultants were looked down on by the others outside the group

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on creating value for the client and less on billable hours; I think you'll still be a great place to work and provide exceptional value to your client-win-win, sound familiar?

    Good people on the team but poor management at the top which lead to high turnover and poor reputation in the industry.

    I worked at XRoads Solutions

    Pros

    Flexibility and very easy to be complacent...not very challenged. No face time necessary, you can manage your own projects, no micromanagement. Come in and out of the office as you please.
    Do maybe 50% billable work and 50% pitch work. No communication from the top, no feedback, no proper yearly performance review. Bonus are based on whether or not the CEO like you. Nothing to do with performance. Base salary is on par with industry and could be good if well negotiated at the beginning. Free snacks, drinks, coffee. Pays for cell phone monthly bill and home internet as part as work expense.

    Cons

    Poor management. Don't respect employees. No strong rainmakers. No loyalty towards employees, many issues with bonus not getting paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better principals and better practice leader to secure and bring more deals.
