What are perks and other benefits like at Sendero?

Pros

Sendero truly cares about its people. They put you first and treat you like family from day one. They believe in a work life balance therefore you can choose if you would like to travel and they won't kill you with 50hr+ weeks.

Cons

Because it's a small firm, their benefits are still smaller than other firms

Advice to Management

Keep caring about people, you're doing great!

Does Sendero offer tuition reimbursement?

Pros

When going through the campus recruiting process, many aspects of Sendero attracted me. All of my interviews were great, and every person I talked to / interacted with was genuinely someone I could see myself befriending and working well with. Very young culture. Invested in making a difference through service with Community Rocks (pro-bono non-profit consulting work), Paid Volunteer Time, Charitable Giving Matching, etc. Smaller company/family feel. Working on a small project but I get to interact with Associates, Analysts, Managers, and Senior Managers on a daily basis. Mentorship is important - Career Advisory program with an employee 3 skip levels above me, and a Buddy of my same career level to answer any questions. Meaningful work and great people. Work hard play hard mentality!

Cons

No tuition assistance, lower pay than I was hoping for.

What is the retirement plan like at Sendero?

Pros

Sendero is the real deal. I'm in a company where I can say the people around me truly care about me. It's a challenging environment, but fun with so many opportunities to grow and develop. And people want to see you grow. They embrace so much diversity at Sendero, which is something I was missing in my last company and I felt like an outsider. But not here, I'm treated just as important as any other employee and it feels good to know my opinion matters. No company is perfect but this place is the closest you will ever get. I love coming to work, I love lunches with my team, I love the transparency that Sendero has. Again, it's rare, so I plan to be here for the long haul. One thing I think is truly special is that employees complete an annual survey so that we can shape the current and future state of this company. And what is even better is that our feedback is heard. It may not be fully addressed as we can only make so many changes in our company at a time but it is heard and some changes are made.

Cons

Because we are a small company, we do not have as competitive benefits as other firms. Maternity leave could be improved and 401K guidelines and matching.

Advice to Management

Please be transparent and make sure this remains a company BY the people FOR the people. Make decisions as a group!

What is paid time off like at Sendero?

Pros

- Sendero hires great people. - Quarterly company events were nice - Office environment was good (when you are in the office/if your project let you go into the office) - Amount of PTO is pretty good - Senior leaders are relatively accessible - Depending on the project, work life balance can be pretty good

Cons

- Unfortunately, I wouldn't describe Sendero as a management consulting firm, but an IT project management firm. Most projects at the associate/analyst level are heavily technical, IT focused projects. This does an extreme disservice to college hires who think they're getting into management consulting. Most associate/analyst level projects end up being staff aug, which creates a happy client but discourages employee growth and satisfaction. - Benefits and salary are well below industry standard. Leadership frequently mentions plans to improve these items, but it is not acted upon. The amount of holidays and rollover PTO rules are significantly below standard. - Performance review is tedious. The results of performance reviews are turned into an annual review/promotion process that is vague and leaves more questions than answers. - Pretty obvious lack of employee diversity. The burden of leading DEI initiatives is often placed on people of color. - Not a place where most people can imagine themselves long term due to the time it takes to get to the level where the projects are engaging/true consulting projects

Advice to Management

- Be upfront with college hires about the type of work they can expect. Wouldn't you rather hire fewer people that are the right fit, than hire a lot of people that leave because the work isn't what they thought it would be? - Be transparent with plans for hiring and plans for expanding and encouraging diversity in hiring. - Choose to value employee growth and development, and satisfaction, rather than client happiness, by limiting staff aug roles. - Seriously evaluate benefits and pay. - Improve transparency regarding compensation and promotion.
