    I worked at Collaborative Consulting

    Pros

    The company was growing at a good pace and the senior management team was relatively stable.

    Cons

    Some junior people with little management experience had been promoted into middle management prematurely. The result was that as they inevitably ran into trouble on client engagements, they threw delivery consultants under the bus in reports to senior management instead of taking control of and responsibility for challenging clients and projects.

    Advice to Management

    Become more engaged in project oversight and leverage HR to gather information from employees at all levels.
