    Pros

    Very good work life balance on the whole for a consulting firm. Junior colleagues have the ability to make a significant contribution very early on.

    Cons

    While BearingPoint has an innovation process, sometimes great ideas become captives of long decision making timeframes, particularly when the majority of the partnership needs to be convinced of the merits of an idea.

    Management doesn't always make the best use of the talent available to them.

    Ability for cross-border engagements not as prevalent as one might expect, as a result of "fiefdom" like thinking amongst parts of the partnership.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to better communicate their vision for the future of the firm.

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

    Pros

    - Processus de recrutement rapide
    - Collègues sympathiques en majorité
    - Pas mal de grandes écoles

    Cons

    - Missions très SI (longues et lointaines)
    - Pression (gros horaires, pas de pause, "présentisme")
    - Rémunération pas forcément à la hauteur, 13 mois, peu de variable
    - Certains managers parlent dans le dos, les vrais talents ne montent pas dans la hiérarchie, seulement les plus besogneux, les autres partent
    - Problème de cohésion quand certains consultants sont en mission du lundi au vendredi et ne connaissent que peu les locaux
    - Par conséquent, taux de rotation très élevé

    Advice to Management

    Meilleure adéquation entre les profils des consultants et les missions

    Wie jede Consulting-Firma ein Haufen eingebildeter Affen. Wenn sie was Richtiges könnten, hätten sie auch richtige Stellen (z.B. Software-Entwicker, Anwalt, Buchhalter, etc)

    Advice to Management

    Shut down shop

    I worked at BearingPoint full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Talented people with a large range of backgrounds and ages
    A wide range of industries and products to be involved with
    Fairly good benefit packages
    Nice office

    Cons

    Left on the bench for the vast majority of the time (Up to a period of 4-5 months!) as the firm seemed to be unable to gain more work from clients. Understand that this might have been changed since with “pro-bono” placements on projects, but this was an unacceptable situation which was given little attention by management. I felt completely undermined by this problem - there was no project rotation to compensate for excessive bench time which was reflected in performance. A wasted year. Very glad to have moved on to more interesting and difficult work with a better-managed employer.

    Project work was also rather dry. More interesting consulting projects to be found elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Rotate project teams. Don’t hire more analysts when work isn’t available and leave them waiting pointlessly on the bench for months at a time.
