    Pros

    Pay was decent
    Made some good friends out of the experience
    Got experience at a big firm
    Was able to learn what I didn't want in a company.

    Cons

    Management perpetuated double standards, played favorites, and did not support you if issues arose on a project.
    Expectations were not communicated, yet employees were reprimanded for not meeting those expectations.
    Corporate culture was strange, super-competitive but without the same esteem as competitors.
    Extreme use of consultant-speak buzz words like "bandwidth"
    Struggle to advance, as I was not one of my manager's "favorites"

    Advice to Management

    get your act together and recognize that you will continue to have high attrition levels as long as you continue to treat employees this way.

    I enjoyed my engagement and the people I worked with. I experienced good opportunities for advancement and increased responsibility and was adequately recognized for my achievements.

    The compensation was poor and overall the company is not doing well financially. However, my sector (Public Services) was doing well.

    Advice to Management

    BearingPoint suffered financially, but I feel that senior leadership did the best they could to lead the company. I was overall happy with my stay at BearingPoint. Will miss you BE!

    Friendly work environment that really helps one stay focused on the task at hand: getting a job once the company goes totally under.

    Take her down easy and enjoy that windfall of cash once the company has been completely sold and liquidated to the creditors, etc.
