Does Sendero offer unlimited time off?

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.

What is the retirement plan like at Sendero?

Pros

When going through the campus recruiting process, many aspects of Sendero attracted me. All of my interviews were great, and every person I talked to / interacted with was genuinely someone I could see myself befriending and working well with. Very young culture. Invested in making a difference through service with Community Rocks (pro-bono non-profit consulting work), Paid Volunteer Time, Charitable Giving Matching, etc. Smaller company/family feel. Working on a small project but I get to interact with Associates, Analysts, Managers, and Senior Managers on a daily basis. Mentorship is important - Career Advisory program with an employee 3 skip levels above me, and a Buddy of my same career level to answer any questions. Meaningful work and great people. Work hard play hard mentality!

Cons

No tuition assistance, lower pay than I was hoping for.

What is paid time off like at Sendero?

Pros

I genuinely liked many of my coworkers who I still maintain friendships with outside of work. The diversity of projects and roles exposes consultants to a variety of experiences. Decent PTO offering with generous flexibility on its use

Cons

I, and many of my peers, had bad experiences during the process of resigning from the company. Sendero does not do a good job to foster relationships with their alumni. Employee diversity is lacking, and if you do not fit a certain personality type your career growth may suffer

Decent PTO offering with generous flexibility on its use
