How is management perceived at Sendero?

Pros

TL;DR: Sendero is a great place to start your career if you're just starting out in the corporate world, looking to pivot to consulting, or if you're looking for a healthy work/life balance that isn't common amongst big consulting firms. However, there are very apparent limitations to the firm in terms of types of projects and compensation, which I can speak more to down below. Structure: the organization at Sendero is extremely similar to what you would find at any large consulting firm. If you're looking for a true 'consulting' experience, Sendero does indeed have the operating model you're looking for. Work/Life Balance & Culture: probably the BIGGEST draw here if you were to compare the firm to other consulting options. They really do care about the employee's health, ability to be off the clock, and in general were some of the most chill people I've worked with.

Cons

Types of Projects: many reviews here are pointing out that there is a lot of IT PM and staff aug roles at Sendero. This is true. And Sendero could definitely do a better job at setting realistic expectations for new employees and project expectations. As for expanding its project portfolio, at the time I left, I didn't see a compelling strategy in growing our management team's ability to win more meaningful work. Current leadership are great people and are able to win certain types of work, but you can't win an M&A or Data Science project without a leader who has those experiences. Compensation: You will most, most likely be under the consulting industry average at Sendero. This is a trade-off that you have to be OK with making in favor of the local model and amazing work-life balance. In addition, I believe part of the issue is that Sendero is very generalist in terms of its service offerings, and if you compare the salary to someone who is doing similar work at a Big 4 (and there's a lot) at a similar location, the undercut is not that bad.

Advice to Management

1. Continue the local operating model, even with its limitations. The work/life balance here really is amazing, and I think there are plenty of talented, hard-working people looking for this. 2. As another review on here said, define the most common roles (QA, BA, OCM, Scrum/PM) and be upfront with new hires. 'Consultant' is such a broad term that creates a lot of mismatched expectations. Some people will still not be OK with the roles, but I think you'd find more people willing to stay if there was clarity from the beginning.
