What are co-workers like at Sendero?

Pros

- People are supportive and Sendero makes sure its people are equipped to succeed - There is appropriate structure in place to provide feedback to employees regarding strengths & weaknesses and opportunities for growth - Work-life balance is taken very seriously - Formal mentorship program in place to help you develop a roadmap to grow your career at the company - Clear expectations regarding promotions - Company always seeking to improve its benefits and talent management policies

Cons

(Speaking from the perspective of a new associate coming out of undergrad) - Recruiting is misleading - Sendero uses the broad, enticing title of "Management Consulting" to attract candidates that are told they have the opportunity to work on many different types of projects across industries and functions. Instead, they end up being placed (mostly) in low-skill IT staff-aug and Project Management roles (mismatched expectations lead to high levels of attrition at lower levels) - General ethos that Associates and Analysts are frustrated with the type of work they are doing, but a communication gap exists between management and lower-level consultants that makes - Associates can spend up to two years at a client doing the same type of work, regardless of whether its work that interests him/her or not - you have little to no say in the type of work you do - High customer/client concentration means that most consultants rotate through a couple of key accounts where Sendero is an outsourced IT solution

Advice to Management

Sendero does do 'management consulting' unlike many reviews claim, but 75% of the work falls into a very small subset of management consulting (IT Project Management). If this is the type of work Sendero strives to do, lean into it rather than recruiting candidates who do not anticipate or seek a career in IT Project/Program Management. Recruiting under the guise of 'general management consulting' is taking advantage of an industry title to attract talent based on peoples' perceptions of a very broad industry. An alternative would be to present the reality that Sendero hopes to expand its offerings in other functional areas (strategy&ops, M&A, HR, etc.), but the vast majority of work is typically concentrated in IT / Technology. This will allow candidates to self-select themselves out of the recruiting process that do not desire a career in IT/Tech consulting, better aligning the talent pipeline with Sendero's work and offerings.
