    Pros

    They cared about the people

    Cons

    Financial management of the "bottom line" needed improvement. Sometimes it looked like there were too many cooks in the kitchen. Everyone had an opinion on the bottomline but not a true solution.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the people.

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

    Pros

    The company was focused on delivering projects within clients' objectives, and consultants' performance were rated based primarily on their projects. Consultants had the necessary toolsets such as project methdologies, to perform their work delivery. The leadership in the earlier stages of my employment rewarded employees and shared the organizational profits; however, towards the timeframe prior to the acquisition, the focus changed.

    Cons

    Consulting rates were on the high side, when bids occurred; therefore, the success rate of proposals were on the low side. Unfortunately, this contributed to the downfall of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be more competitive in performing business development, and extend the capabilities of the each practice, in order to create a more definite set of differentiators.

    Pros

    Very fair compensation--it was really how well you played the salary negotations.
    You could easily have a strong work-life balance here.

    Cons

    Very disorganized company. Several tools and methodologies were inconsistent. No valuable training provided aside from an orientation titled "BearingPoint Beginnings", which was general business tactics on being presentable, making a good impression, and how contracting operates.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit strong middle management and project leads who can be impactful on their project teams and build up a consistent corporate culture.
