Company Updates

  • “It’s not entirely correct to call Centric Consulting a company without walls, but it’s close." In an article by MeritMatters, President Larry English speaks about the thought process behind Centric’s virtual office model. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIJAB

    Alone Together: How a virtual office model helps Centric Consulting shine

    Originally published in Columbus Edition of MeritMatters It's not entirely correct to call Centric Consulting a company without walls, but it's close. There is no headquarters, just home offices and kitchen tables where most of the company's 700 employees and contractors work. And employees are likely to hold their next meeting at Starbucks, not in the corporate boardroom.

National Community Service

In January 2012, we took our first step to nationally organize our employees for our first all-company community service day. More than 300 employees and their family members came together for one day to help rebuild the Hurricane Katrina-damaged Gentilly Community Center of Hope in New Orleans, La. We donated more than 2,400 man-hours to the effort and can’t wait to do it again.

Since then, the entire team has come together regularly to give back as a group. Often these community service projects are in conjunction with an all-company meeting. Past meeting projects have included building bikes for needy children in Detroit and packing 10,000+ meals for the hungry in Africa.

Local Community Citizenship

Living in the communities in which we work has its advantages. We dedicate a portion of our normal working hours to providing pro bono consulting services and time to being active participants in helping our communities. The following are some examples of how each of our regional groups make a difference:

  • Cincinnati is a founding partner of Flywheel Cincinnati, a Social Enterprise Hub that helps nonprofits become self-sustaining through alternate business models. The Cincinnati team also participates in and sponsors Give Back Cincinnati, which includes the painting and rehabilitation of older homes as well as Adopt a Class, which allows companies to be pen pals and mentors to low income students.
  • Indianapolis donates its technical expertise to the GiveCampcampaign by providing coding services to help build web applications for local charities.
  • Chicago employees work with the Greater Chicago Food Depository packing meals for those in need and participates in the Chase Corporate Challenge.
  • Cleveland participates in their innovative “Get Fit For Charity” program led by senior consultant, Sarah Baker, and manager, Dan Valerian. The program combines community athletic events with fund raising activities throughout the year for organizations such asSusan B. KomenBig Brothers Big SistersCoats for Kids, and Autism Speaks. We run. We walk. We tri. We bowl. Our goal is 100% participation. Many of our team members also contribute individually to help non-profits through board involvement and various leadership roles.
  • Columbus regularly repairs and renovates homes for low-income, elderly and disabled individuals in the region through theRebuilding Together organization.
  • St. Louis actively participates in the United Way. St. Louis also works with early stage for-profit and social ventures.

    Pros

    Centric strives to provide the best for both its clients and employees - not an easy feat to accomplish. I've been consulting for nearly 3 decades and Centric performs this balancing far better than most firms I've experienced. Centric maintains a stellar reputation among its clients and competitors. Moreover, its employee-oriented, family-like culture keeps me engaged and satisfied. The Centric culture also encourages and promotes an entrepreneurial spirit and ingenuity among its consultants.

    Cons

    I personally have no "Cons." However, some perceive the culture to be less formal and structured than they'd desire. Others find the flat hierarchy difficult to maneuver their careers within.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and culture.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Centric Consulting (Cincinnati, OH) in August 2016.

    Interview

    the interview process is slow, conservative, and very transparent. it is worth the wait! I was contacted via LinkedIn by the in-house recruiter and then participated on two phone interviews and two in-person interviews in Cincinnati.

    Interview Questions

    • no "gotcha" questions. the interviews were conducted in an open, free dialog, forum and were more about synergies and chemistry, however, experience and skills were discovered along the way.   1 Answer
