    I have been working at Burwood Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I value a companies that are transparent with their employees. I strongly believe Burwood exemplifies this. Burwood is constantly trying to improve it's processes whether on the business side or for its internal employees. If an employee has an idea that can improve the company, as long as the employee can provide a strong business case for it, employee's ideas are heard. Down to earth owners who have constant interaction with employees on all levels.

    Cons

    No crucial cons. When reading Glassdoor reviews, one must take it with a grain of salt. Glassdoor provides an anonymous forum for current or former employees to leave critical comments without having their name attached. Like all companies, not everyone is going to be a fit at Burwood. However, Burwood does an excellent job of providing an environment and giving the tools for its employees to succeed. You just have to be willing to be all in and you will succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Communication. Like any company or in anything in life, communication always determines success. If a team can successfully communicate, they are generally well off. Teams that can not communicate effectively, fall short. Continue to improve communication between teams, management, and throughout the company.

    I have been working at Burwood Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - The company strategy and vision are right in-line with my assumptions; we are focusing on the right verticals and markets.
    - Senior leadership provides transparency (strategy changes, financials) which I greatly appreciate. "We are all in this together."
    - Burwood encourages stepping out of your comfort zone and assists with learning new skills.
    - The associate program is a great way to "grow" talent.
    - Burwood understands the trusted advisor relationship better than other consulting firms I have encountered.
    - The new employee onboarding process is the best I have seen. Everything is set up for success on day one. Yes, there is a lot of information to get through but all of it necessary and welcome.
    - Professionalism is expected. With that comes responsibility. The result is that leadership does not micro-manage and expects the consultant to manage his own schedule, ensure the forecast is accurate, and is accountable for results.

    Cons

    There are no outstanding "cons" that are worth mentioning here. Working with Burwood is exactly as I expected it to be based on past experience, discussions with Burwood management, and full transparency throughout the hiring process.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue the great work with company progress meetings.
    - The mid-year retreat was very rewarding; looking forward to other opportunities to help the community
    - I'm very happy to witness a sense of family and friendship all over the company. This is a great achievement.

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

    Pros

    A few fun gatherings, since the company is tiny.

    Cons

    There are too many cons to list. High turnover, low salaries, not enough CCIEs, no vision to grow, 2 people run the show as the owners, therefore communication is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    You know your company is weak.
