Pros

Wonderful people, great culture, good benefits, lots of opportunity to contribute across the company, inspirational leadership, challenging work, wonderful workmates

Cons

Lots of turnover at lower levels, not always open to new ideas, the diversity of the consulting work could be better because sometimes its very much limited to IT or tech implementations

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.

Pros

• Most of your coworkers will be nice, competent and fun to be around • Work-life balance is good (no travel required) • Chances are, you will find a manager that supports your development • PTO amounts are good for consultants • In office events can be fun and office space is nice • Strong focus on volunteering and community engagement

Cons

• Like other reviews have said, Sendero is not true management consulting. It is usually IT Project Management, and often staff aug. In my time here, I’ve seen maybe 2 instances of high level managers doing some consulting. This is made even more obvious when you’re staffed on a client that employs another consulting firm; you quickly realize how different our work is from actual consulting. • Sendero consistently bends to the unreasonable expectations of clients at the expense of employees. Employees can ask for sometimes years to be rolled off, but Sendero will not in fear of losing a client or losing money. As a result, Sendero loses valuable employees instead. • The performance review process is super overcomplicated. Efforts to streamline it have not done much to provide clarity. It seems as if many promotions are based on who is most liked at the company rather than who has done the work to deserve it. • Feedback is encouraged, but if your feedback is negative it is met with defensiveness. Company wide surveys feel like they are used to make employees feel like things will be addressed, but changes are rarely made and if they are, it takes a long time. • Pay and benefits are much lower than other consulting firms. • Diversity and inclusion continues to be an issue firm-wide. It feels like statements made by top leaders about current events are made because they know they “need” to do it, but not committing to or knowing how to follow through on crucial steps.

Advice to Management

You can’t fix issues that are brought up in legitimate feedback with the same approach that got you there. When your employees tell you they want to be rolled off, believe them and prioritize that. Invest in Diversity and Inclusion the same way you invest in community engagement. Advertise what you actually do, not the idea of what consulting is.

• Pay and benefits are much lower than other consulting firms.

Pros

In a year of much uncertainty, Sendero has truly stepped up to support its employees through the pandemic. I am thankful to work for a company that has a leadership team that practices so much transparency, empathy, and care for its people. I look forward to seeing how Sendero thrives as we continue along this path of growth and expansion.

Cons

Sendero is still a growing firm, so benefits are not the same as Big 4 consulting firms. However, Sendero has demonstrated a commitment to taking this feedback & taking positive steps in the right direction.

Advice to Management

Continue to be transparent, open, and honest with your people.

Pros

Sendero truly hires some of the best people I have encountered. Upper-level employees genuinely care about your success and make themselves available to all, even new-hires. Everyone will be a resource for you, and all are very friendly. People care about each other here and your colleagues will feel like friends. They are very understanding of life events, and as long as you get your work done you are welcome to fit in appointments as needed. PTO use is encouraged and never a problem. More benefits than I expected for a smaller company. They have done a great job with being completely WFH. They give you a very clear understanding of your career path, and hard work is recognized.

Cons

Can feel isolated on projects when only working with a couple of Sendero members, however, this is a typical dilemma in consulting. The company resource directory seems a bit outdated and difficult to navigate at times.
