What is the salary like at Sendero?

Pros

- Incredible people. I can genuinely say I love working with all of my coworkers and teammates and have gotten to work alongside some wonderful managers and mentors who truly care about me, challenge me, and go out of their way to help me succeed. - I've seen some reviews on here saying Sendero doesn't truly do "Management Consulting" - while I think there are some clients/projects where this would feel true, this has not been my experience at all. In the three years I've been at the company, I've worked on 4 different projects in 3 different industries and every single one of these projects involved lots of facetime with client stakeholders, plenty of opportunities for growth, and some really cool experience I'm really proud to have on my resume. - While the starting salary is lower than other consulting firms, I have been really pleased with the annual performance-based raises which I would say is well above average. I think hard work is recognized and well rewarded at Sendero. - There is a strong focus on community involvement - employees are allowed 2 hours of Paid Volunteer Time per month, are able to participate in pro-bono projects for non-profits, are often offered tickets to fundraisers Sendero is sponsoring, and can get their donations matched by Sendero. If community engagement is important to you, Sendero will provide you plenty of opportunities to satisfy that desire.

Cons

- As is likely true at all consulting firms - projects are very much "luck of the draw" and I would consider myself fairly lucky. I wish Sendero would be pickier about the projects they agree to take on. - I think there is such an emphasis on growth as a company (in terms of client diversity, number of employees, practice areas) that sometimes quality is sacrificed. I would like to see Sendero work on finding a better balance here rather than taking this "growth above all else" mindset.

What are other benefits and incentives like at Sendero?

Pros

You will never get staffed on a project with people you don't like or can't relate to. They hire really fun people and are committed to making sure those people have a good time on client work and internal projects. You will learn a lot about technology and how IT departments at big companies work.

Cons

Lame work. Just about all of it is IT project management in a staff aug. capacity. This is NOT a management consulting firm. Most of the PM roles are long term and your ability to see multiple clients is limited over the course of your staff level time. There are a few roles that dabble in portfolio management or optimization but your only interaction with revenue producing leadership will most likely be in stakeholder communications. People talk about "growing pains" but the growth has been pretty steady. Sendero hires a lot of junior employees and sees relatively heavy turnover towards the top. Profitability per head is presumably high which is great for the financials. However, they hire the same kind of people so keeping the culture isn't all that hard in the growth process. Where they face trouble is from the decisions they make in terms of corporate strategy and people development. Most decisions don't align with the strategic vision they lay out for employees. They hire people who want to be consultants and then staff them at data centers.

Advice to Management

Build a sales team and hire strategic advisors from other consulting companies. Expand your breadth and depth of service offerings so you actually become a management consulting company.

Cons

- Very small pool of clients and unexciting project work. - Diversity is lacking heavily. - Not that much say in what type of projects you want to be in. - Tedious end of year project reviews. - Low, low pay compared to other consulting firms of their rank
