Cons

  • sometimes long hours are needed, summer hours are dependent on each business unit, so if your boss is stricter than most, you don't receive that perk (in 9 reviews)

    I worked at Alvarez & Marsal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good team culture. Many challenges and problems require outside the box thinking. Great firm for seasoned IT professionals and SME candidates.

    Cons

    Internal politics at the higher levels. Not much support from higher levels for issues in the field. Decisions made abruptly without buy in or feedback from lower levels of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    More communication with managing director level and above for consultants working in the field.

    Pros

    Awesome employees
    Experienced management
    Decent diversity of projects

    Cons

    Pay across business units varies greatly and can be frustrating
    A&M has emerged from its entrepreneurial phase that attracted many of the original leaders and cultural attractions

    Advice to Management

    Greater focus on providing diversity of experience to younger employees will reduce burn-out. A&M attracts top notch talent, without question, but the growth in demand in the marketplace often left the firm strapped with few available resources and people often getting plugged into similar situations consistently.

    Pros

    There is no set vacation policy... it's take it when you need it so you can potentially take more time than would be standard at other companies.

    Cons

    No vacation policy can lead to not being able to take any vacation. Bosses can veto your ability to book a vacation out in advance leaving you limited time to plan an actual trip. You are encouraged to take vacation when you are not on a client, which is not something you can predict far enough ahead of time to plan a trip.

    Leadership in some offices is weaker than others.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your people

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    High level of responsibility and ability to take initiative with clients.

    Cons

    Lack of internal structure and great leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Supporting organizational culture is even more important during an ecomonic downturn than when times are good. Don't lose sight of the firms reputation for the short term gain in marginal revenue.
