    I worked at Connor Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great culture in NY - Exposure to the most exciting start-up companies - Pay is very competitive including lucrative bonus structure - Annual offsite events

    Cons

    - As the company has grown it's lost the personal, family-type culture - Ownership is frugal and it's felt at all levels

    Pros

    Colleagues were the best part of working here, a lot of nice people to work with

    Cons

    Working on the operations team is a very different experience than working as a consultant on the client-facing side. The operations team is not valued or invested in by management as they do not generate revenue for the firm. Pay is extremely low for the area and industry, there are no opportunities for professional development, and very little opportunity for career advancement. As a result, there is huge turnover... within operations.

    Advice to Management

    Operations staff are as crucial to your business' success as revenue-generating consultants. Invest in and prioritize their well-being and development accordingly.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Connor Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ability to work with cool tech companies. The projects given were normally challenging. People are genuine and want to help you succeed in your career.

    Cons

    Work can be challenging and at times demanding. Client service work, so the expectation can sometimes be working long hours/travelling to satisfy their demands. That said, other consulting firms generally have far worse hour/travel demands.

    I have been working at Connor Group full-time

    Pros

    You have more flexibility as there is no real supervision.

    Cons

    Unprofessional attitude. They will assign a team of 5 when work can be done by only 1 person.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Connor Group full-time

    Pros

    Job satisfaction from the projects. Clients that really appreciate the help that you provide. Some really experienced and knowledgeable people that you work with to deliver answers to complex technical issues.

    Cons

    Need to find the good people to work with within the organization. Some of the staff are graded above the experience level. On the one hand they are growing but they are still working out how to deal with being a bigger organization and communicate a consistent message to all.

    Advice to Management

    Slow decision making on everything other than client facing situations and unclear roles and responsibilities need to be minimized.

    Pros

    Great clients, great project topics. Learn a ton! If you want to learn about how to do complex accounting at high-growth, VC-backed technology companies, you can't do better in professional services than Connor Group. The bonus is great. Large component based on hours that actually means you get paid for long work days.

    Cons

    Some of the partners aren't great, but others are wonderful. Having a lot of clients going through IPOs means that client work is constantly reviewed by Big4 national office-types, so you stay technically sharp, but training isn't that great--it's all on the job.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of sales-minded people in management. This is great for landing clients, but they BS their own employees, too. Puffery isn't a good long-term confidence builder.
