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

    Pros

    -Very good work/life balance
    -Many of the colleagues are helpful
    -Good projects in the region

    Cons

    -If you are not from Europe (especially not from Finland) expect to be treated as a 3rd class employee. You will get smaller pay, slower career, fewer opportunities, and be treated as less intelligent. The global company HR does not provide any help to stop these practices and seems even to endorse it.
    -Partners and Senior Managers are most of the time in office and expecting to get projects booked
    -The culture is more leaned towards more demands / fewer benefits for the non-European emplyees and fewer demands / more benefits for Europeans.

    Advice to Management

    -Focus on providing more fair treatment and career opportunities to all employees regardless of their origin. An Arab or Pakistani consultant is not less smart than a European. Have some consistency in rewarding employees based on what they are bringing not on their passport color.

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

    Pros

    - Trotz der Größe kam fast das Gefühl eines Familienunternehmens auf
    - angemessene Bezahlung
    - Weiterbildung wird gefördert, wenn es einigermaßen zu den Zielen der Firma passt

    Cons

    - Damals haben mir die Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten gefehlt, das hat sich aber wohl mittlerweile geändert
    - fällt mir nicht mehr ein
    -

    Advice to Management

    Einige Partner sollten in Soft Skills investieren und in Fortbildungen zum Thema Mitarbeiterführung. Ich hatte Glück mit meinem Partner aber was man von anderen Kollegen so mitbekommen hat war kein gutes Betriebsklima!!

    Pros

    Good company with good atmosphere where people really work together and help each other.

    Cons

    Low bonuses compared to the amount of work produced. Salary gaps only with new titles but not between two grades.

    Advice to Management

    More bonuses, not only with new grades. Less technical missions while most people are here only for business purposes.

    Pros

    Très bon esprit et très bonne ambiance de travail entre les salariés de Bearingpoint. Entraide et solidarité assez rare pour un cabinet.

    Cons

    De nombreuses missions à forte connotation IT, augmentations faibles entre chaque grade, pas d'intéressement ou participation.

    Advice to Management

    Lisser les augmentations à la manière de ce que font d'autres cabinets afin d'éviter des creux démotivants entre chaque grade.

    I worked at BearingPoint full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Internationale mogelijkheden, groeiend bedrijf als totaal.

    Cons

    Stagnerend in Nederland, weinig aanbod van externe trainingen, methodologisch niet sterk: aanpak is sterk afhankelijk van wie een project leidt. Kan daardoor lastig zijn voor startende junior consultants.

    Advice to Management

    Keuzes maken, dit houdt ook in wat je beter niet kunt doen voor wat betreft propositie en markt keuzes

    I have been working at BearingPoint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a fairly decent brand, but the decline is in full motion.

    Cons

    BearingPoint is out of touch with the market. Most likely you will be carrying out the work that other consulting firms already mapped out; software implementations in boring locations. Training is non-existent and compensation is well below other players in the industry. If you're looking for consulting experience, look elsewhere. Cocky management that is prepared to backstab you anytime.

    Advice to Management

    Resign. Fast.

    Great place to start and grow. It was a good run while it lasted.

    None - Was there until the end.
