    I have been working at BearingPoint full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart and agreeable teams providing great learning opportunities, through projects and available training. Management usually quite respectful of work/life balance, takes care of the team members' well-being.

    Cons

    Scope of team projects tends to stray from pure Business Consulting missions to big IT projects (ERP deployments), and thus longer single missions. Not permanent nor true for all team members, but something to be watchful for when joining and spend time advertising themselves internally.

    I worked at BearingPoint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - For a consulting firm, the work/life balance was pretty good, even if it could vary from an assignment to another.
    - Moreover, you can find smart people to work with

    Cons

    - Some assignments are not that exciting and can be for a very long period of time (more than a year)
    - Difficult to make the difference (in terms of salary and promotions) even if you are viewed as a rock start

    Advice to Management

    - Reward exceptional performance instead of trying to buy social peace
    - Invest in your best-in-class employees

    Pros

    Bonnes missions, bon esprit entre les équipes, management accessibles, bonnes opportunités de missions et d'évolutions.

    Cons

    secteur du conseil : de grosses horaires, deadlines courtes, déplacements, instabilité des plannings.

    Advice to Management

    Prendre en compte les souhaits de développement personnel (intérêt pour les sujets des missions) afin de diminuer le turnover. Certaines missions gagnées sont longues, lointaines et le sujet n'est pas intéressant. Ils ont beau générer du business, elles poussent certains de nos consultants à nous quitter.

    Pros

    Bonne image de l'entreprise dans le monde du conseil
    Taille plus humaine que les grands cabinets, bonne ambiance en interne (dépend également des équipes)
    Possibilité de travailler sur des missions variées

    Cons

    Manque d'agilité sur certains process, impact limité des initiatives internes et personnelles
    Politique salariale juste au niveau de la moyenne du marché
    Environnement de travail pourrait être grandement amélioré

    I worked at BearingPoint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Travailler avec des collaborateurs intelligents et au bon système de valeurs quelque soit le grade. Sinon assez classiques et en dessous des autres cabinets de conseil. À mentionner bonne mutuelle

    Cons

    Ambiance de travail plombée par des jeux politiques depuis 2012. Un management pieuvre à plusieurs têtes en fonction des ambitions des uns et des autres de ces messieurs qui nuit au développement du bureau français qui se meurt. Accélération à venir avec le dernier mandat encours du Managing Partner Firme.
