    Pros

    Amazing co-workers, strong team atmosphere, high impact assignments, experienced leadership team, great benefits.

    Projects can be demanding at times- but this is due to the high-impact nature of the engagements. Management does a good job recognizing this and work/life balance is a priority for the firm.

    I have been working at AlixPartners full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Firm really cares about its employees, and is very focused on being one of the best places to work. Places people first. I asked a veteran of several years to tell me about the unhappy people, and what their reasons were for being unhappy. He gave me a perplexed look and replied "I don't know any unhappy people here".

    Cons

    Still going through the process of transitioning from a medium-sized firm to a big firm, and finding its way (but trying hard)

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at AlixPartners full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Firm leadership recognizes that the people are its greatest asset, something I have always known but has been shown in incredible ways these past few weeks. Integrity, mutual respect and an open-door policy. An exceptional employment experience for people who thrive and excel in an environment where people have the freedom to express ideas and viewpoints that may differ from the norm. The autonomous culture encourages a person to grow personally and professionally, furthering personal success and success of the firm, creating a pride of ownership and quality product.

    Cons

    Some systems need revisions/upgrades. Departments may not communicate plans or initiatives broadly enough, resulting in duplication of efforts. Slow to accept process change, even when current state is known to be cumbersome and inefficient.

    Very opaque in terms of career and compensation growth, very low to no emphasis on matching demand and resources based on locations
