    I worked at Cedar Management Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You will learn as learning opportunities are there
    Get to work with some of the biggest names in Middle East

    Cons

    You may learn the wrong things. Real achievement involves really making a difference to the client. It doesnt involve making colorful presentations and playing politics.
    Lies only get you that far. So if you want short term gratification you may get it here but in longer term its not a place to be.

    Advice to Management

    Practice yourself what you preach to clients. People do matter. A senior position is no license to develop a giant ego !

    I worked at Cedar Management Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Learning Opportunities, Client Exposure, Lots of learning on the Job. Experience in market is valued and very good exit options as your experience counts in the market

    Cons

    No Work Life Balance, Long working hours with very less pay, Very less or no Bonus payout, Very Bad HR policies, No resource planning from management as you would be involved in multiple projects at the same time, Thus client escalations are frequent and an accepted norm.

    Advice to Management

    Please make your policies more friendly for Employees, Plan your resourcing and do not burden your resources. Company has one of the highest iteration rates that I have ever seen.

    I worked at Cedar Management Consulting (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get good responsibility and get to work on international projects. The office location is good and colleagues are nice people to work with

    Cons

    Their partners in Dubai should be given sufficient resources in their office. It gets difficult to work on their whims and fancies from the Mumbai office, in their time zone and at their convenience.
    If this aspect is resolved and employees are made to work hard on projects rather than on internal documents(which are of no use), then I think this place can be a good place to work at

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to the plight of employees. One particular senior partner in Dubai is ruining the company culture and is the reason why most people get frustrated and quit.
