    I have been working at Eagle Hill Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    EHC puts a lot of thought into its culture and employee experience. Since day one, I have felt supported, challenged, and encouraged to do my best by a group of amazingly genuine and fun coworkers. The firm empowers its people, and opportunities to develop skills come early on. Coming from a firm where entry-level staff were belittled and undermined, I have found Eagle Hill to be a refreshing change of pace where my input is not only valued but projected into client-facing presentations, business development opportunities, and senior leadership’s earshot. The performance evaluation system is comprehensive, allowing us to claim credit for nearly every initiative or task that we work on, and with perspective and feedback possible from multiple peers and not just one direct supervisor. Eagle Hill senior leadership excels at communication and transparency, with regular meetings, conferences and surveys as vehicles for employees to ask questions and voice their opinions. Since employees are happy, they tend to get involved with internal initiatives to spread their enthusiasm and make the company an even better place to work. I love the size of EHC – it’s small enough to be comfortable and familiar, but large enough that I’m always meeting new people and learning from amazing new colleagues (that I’ll often kick myself for not getting to know sooner!)

    Cons

    While EHC has recently re-visited its career mapping and progression levels for the better, it seems there remains ambiguity around minimum requirements for entry-level consultants, especially recently. Though I think the company does a great job of quickly recognizing high performers, it’s unfair for experienced professionals to start out on the same par as others with significantly less experience, education and/or maturity.

    Advice to Management

    Create more standardization for the Topgrading process and/or additional prerequisite criteria for each job level. Also, continue to listen to employees’ input and feedback on a regular basis, with opportunities not only for small soundbites but tangible and constructive process improvement ideas for the company. Finally, continue to develop internal networking opportunities to replace the former family network system so that we can get to meet more of our awesome coworkers!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Eagle Hill Consulting (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    I applied to Eagle Hill Consulting through an employee referral and had a very positive application/interview experience. Each candidate is assigned an internal recruiter, which makes for a more personalized and enjoyable process. My recruiter, Amy Fuller, was nothing short of amazing from start to finish. She was professional during our initial phone screening and remained hands-on leading up to my formal interview. Eagle Hill follows a Topgrading Interview approach to gain an in-depth understanding of each candidate's education and career history. Through this interview process, the interviewing managers are able to assess which candidates exhibit traits and skills that would make them well-suited for the Eagle Hill team. In order to execute this Topgrading process, each candidate completes a Career History Form in advance of the interview, which is then used as the basis for the interview. The interview can take up to three hours due to the amount of information there is to cover. Thorough as it may be, I believe the Topgrading process is essential to hiring top talent. I also felt more than prepared for my interview thanks to Amy's guidance, approachability, and constant professionalism.
