    I worked at Bristlecone full-time

    Pros

    Small-firm flexibility - demonstrate a competency, and win yourself a better role (subject to availability of relevant, high-quality projects!)

    Cons

    Outside of the core SAP supply chain planning practice (SCPC), little true Consulting work available.
    Old hands have the upper hand!

    Advice to Management

    Improve processes important to employees (e.g. rotation between projects), improve governance - consider a complete overhaul of HR

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

    Pros

    Excellent colleagues, knowledgeable consultants in India and on shore

    Cons

    Confused management. The CEO turnover is one every 3 years and top level changes are rampant causing unnecessary commotion and drama in the consulting team

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. You have been poised to 'grow out big' for years but still haven't grown out of other group companies shadows.
