    I have been working at Axiom Consulting Partners full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment: collegial, collaborative, and growing. Axiom is a small firm in a growth trajectory. It is branching out into broader consulting areas. Projects are stimulating and the work is challenging but with fair hours. As in any small firm, your performance is under a microscope: there is nowhere to hide and good performers are rewarded. The hands-on culture is very helpful to handle staffing issues (see below): people at all levels are willing to get their hands dirty and "get the job done"

    Cons

    Sometimes juggling multiple projects can be a challenge. Staffing model can be too tight: all it takes is one or two people moving to another job and one layer of the organization becomes stretched somewhat thin.

    Pros

    Staff are collegial and generally smart.

    Cons

    Partners are all retreads who couldn't succeed or play nice in other firms. Lots of passive aggressiveness. Growth compared to other small firms is very disappointing.

    Pros

    Consulting engagements address many different issues related to client growth and resilience. Members of the firm, at all levels, are committed to understanding differing perspectives, solving problems, and creating lasting results for clients. The variety of industries and project focus areas allows for ongoing development of knowledge and skills - both in breadth and depth. Colleagues are great to work with and learn from.

    Cons

    The workload is not always perfectly steady and predictable, so periods of more intense time commitment do occur throughout a given year.

    Pros

    Smart, well-qualified staff, good solid client base, steady growth.

    Cons

    Even junior people can be working on several projects simultaneously, which creates challenges with respect to both work prioritization and logistics.

    Pros

    Outstanding people and a demanding but fair culture. Competitive compensation and challenging assignments. Working alongside senior partners and senior client executives has been a tremendously rewarding experience.

    Cons

    Typical consulting challenges—some long hours, rigorous analytical activities.

    Advice to Management

    Remain thoughtfully provocative with clients to deliver value to them and provide exciting opportunities for us consultants.

    Pros

    Great blue-chip clients, collegiate working environment, mature culture based on key principles and values, almost zero bureaucracy and office politics, challenging and sometimes groundbreaking work, great growth trajectory, huge progress over the last two years, innovative and entrepreneurial.

    Cons

    Not a great place for people who want a 9-to-5 job, or lots of structure and policies. "Client first" mentality and growth trajectory can mean a heavy workload, but no different than other successful consulting organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, continue investing in top talent ahead of client demand.

    I have been working at Axiom Consulting Partners full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Our culture focuses on core values as key drivers of our success, and we truly take into account the needs and passions of every individual when considering staffing (internal or external projects). Every individual here, including Partners, role up the sleeves to provide the best value to clients and help each other out (whether someone is just hitting a time of peak workload or has a planned vacation or personal challenge to tend to).

    Cons

    Like any management consulting firm, some days/weeks are very challenging in terms of being "on call" and there is some travel (though lower than most other consultancies). Aside from these, the firm is well positioned for growth and an exciting place to be and develop.

    I have been working at Axiom Consulting Partners full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very little of the firm's work is replicated with most engagements pushing the envelope in strategy, organization and talent. Very few firms adopt such an integrated approach to serving clients, with a bias on custom design to meet different needs, and on implementation in an environment where even relatively new professionals get exposure to all areas of the work. Want to be best in your field - Axiom will give you that opportunity.

    Cons

    Like any consulting organization it's a challenge in this industry to balance work with the rest of your life.

    Advice to Management

    Don't compromise on culture or relax hiring standards. It's essential to what you've created here.

    I worked at Axiom Consulting Partners full-time

    Pros

    Autonomy
    Good people
    Laid back work environment and flexible work locations/schedules
    Have a decent line of sight into the Firm's financials, pipeline, and key issues

    Cons

    Limited opportunities since it is a small firm. Very consistent work that becomes tedious and exhausting.
    No opportunities for development, especially since senior people can be egocentric and have a hard time loosening the reign.
    Management is immature at time and cater to particular people/politics within the firm.
    Big discrepancy in what work they claim to do and what they actually sell/deliver

    Truly challenging work
    Broad diversity of client engagements- across multiple disciplines and industries

    Cons

    Workload - given the nature of the engagements and our size, at times, work can be too demanding!
