    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.
