    Pros

    If you want a true management consulting experience - project based work, sharp, diverse people, and lots of challenge and variety - then Sendero has it. If you want to be a active member of your community, have interests outside of work, and sleep in your own bed every night, then Sendero has it. Add in a strong, values based culture and it truly is the best of all worlds!

    Cons

    As growing firm, everyone has to be adaptable and open to change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward staying true to the Sendero way.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Sendero (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Application on campus, phone interview with scenario questions from past experiences, then in-person on campus interview with the same types of questions and a writing sample that was basically drafting an email about a late project to a Manager. The final interview was in the office in Dallas. They invited me down the night before, and I had dinner with a couple of other applicants and a couple of lower level employees. The next morning, I had 3 interviews. The first was with is a higher level employee, and it also consisted doing a consulting diagram scenario, and then the scenario questions again. Next, was an interview with a Partner, which was mostly the partner telling me about the company and its culture. Lastly, was an informal lunch with a lower level employee.

    My only critique about the interview process is that the company is not transparent enough about its hiring and compensation package. They focus a lot of the company culture, job descriptions, and management, but there's no discussion of compensation until the offer letter. The salary is really low, especially for a downtown Dallas consulting firm. They seem to have a good health insurance plan and PTO though. Overall, if you're not worried about money, it seems a decent job in a friendly environment.
