What is the company culture at Sendero?

Pros

-Sendero hires the best people, both in business acumen and interpersonal skills -Great internal culture -You will relate to and enjoy working with each person on your projects

Cons

-As many of the other reviews say, although Sendero calls itself a management consulting firm, the vast majority of the work is mundane, low skill, IT project management work, as part of staff augmentation for a few key clients. This a far cry from true management consulting with a variety of clients and type of work -Very high turnover. The first warning sign I saw of deep issues within Sendero was the very high turnover rate, which hovered around 30% and management didn’t seem to take notice since they knew they could lure in more people to take their place. Hardly anyone I worked with actually enjoyed the work they were doing -Baiting people into working here with the great people and supposed true consulting work, but switching them to the true work they will be doing, which is miserable IT PM work -I was shocked clients payed big $$$ to Sendero to do project management work which is mostly smoke and mirrors. Sendero doesn’t really do any work, they just passively manage projects that developers work on -Most people I worked with were actively trying to leave, but with the non compete you sign, it’s hard to leave unless you exit consulting or move to another city

Advice to Management

Sendero has so much potential to be great, but their refusal to adapt their marketing to the work they actually do or the unwillingness to hire experienced strategy leaders from larger consulting companies, will leave them as an afterthought in the long term

Great internal culture

How was the interview at Sendero?

Pros

Incredible people. Sendero takes great pride in hiring the best people and it shows. I loved all of the people that I got meet there and still consider many to be good friends. The relationships that I built there made it very hard to leave.

Cons

The type of consulting projects that they offered were not really what I expected or was what was advertised during the interview process. They do not take your career growth desires into consideration when assigning you to a client or project.

Advice to Management

Start specializing consultants based on the areas that they want to grow their career in. Also, whenever constructive feedback is given at the end of year, spend less time creating forums to talk about it and more time creating tangible solutions.

What is the hiring process 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.

However, they hire the same kind of people so keeping the culture isn't all that hard in the growth process.
