    I have been working at CrossCountry Consulting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most companies that go through period of large growth will suffer as a result. Here, they have done a great job at maintaining the culture - the thing that makes CrossCountry unique. The leadership team really is engaged - they truly do care and regularly interact with employees at all levels. You never feel like you are left out there alone. I've had some of the best career guidance that I've ever had while working here - not just how to excel on a project, but how to be a better consultant. There are so many great consultants here that you can always learn something - whether that is client management skills, technical skills, team building skills, etc.

    Cons

    It is a consulting company - so you will have some long hours, you will have difficult clients, but this is what consultants do. They pay overtime, so you know if you have some extra hours that you will get compensated for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the culture - the company is still growing quickly and I would hate to see the culture fizzle away.

    Thank you for your review! It’s great to hear that you feel our culture and engagement with employees has not changed over the course of our growth the past few years. We won’t lose sight of what... More

    I have been working at CrossCountry Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I would like to give a standing ovation to the entire CrossCountry firm for living the company values every day. I am so proud to say I work for CrossCountry Consulting.

    I was hired in August, on-boarded for a day, and then immediately went to HCM certification and practical for the next 3 weeks. What could have been a trying and alienating experience was the opposite.
    • When I was in the Washington office day 1, I felt not only welcomed but celebrated. Many took the time to find me to say hi or have coffee with me. It was not out of obligation but generosity.
    • When I was at Workday training, my colleagues kept tabs on me and cheered me on from afar. I received emails, Slack messages, and Janet even met me for dinner to ensure I knew CrossCountry was there to build me up every step of the way.
    • When I briefly questioned my career move (totally due to lack of sleep during certification), my CrossCountry team mates were there to rally behind me.
    • When I passed certification, the entire Workday POD was there to congratulate me.
    • Each day since, I have been brought into the fold, been seen as an equal, and have been trusted to be a client and internal resource.
    • Although remote, through Slack, Zoom Video chats, my coach, and HR touch points, I have continued to be an ever-present part of the entire CrossCountry team. I have never felt looked over or less than. I know I can participate in meaningful conversations and my opinion has been sought after and welcomed.

    I want to remind everyone what a difference each and every person makes each and every day to the experience and success of CrossCountry. Any gesture is never too small. I celebrate today each and every person who makes this company great. I just hope to live up to the standards already set.

    Cons

    A few of the benefits like life insurance and 401k match could be stronger but I do know that the corporate staff review every year so I am hopeful for additional changes in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to date! Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at CrossCountry Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CrossCountry does a great job at hiring great people and retaining them. Their support and encouragement are never ending, and they have a performance management system geared at frequent feedback. I cannot stress enough how important it is to love what you do and to enjoy the people you work with, and I'm happy to say that I have both working for this firm.

    Cons

    Growth always comes with some growing pains. I think it's inevitable that the firm has learned some lessons as we grow, rather than beforehand. This is expected when you join a firm that is only 7 years old.

    Advice to Management

    Continue focusing on culture and talent true to the vision and core values.

    Pros

    Leadership takes the time to get to know each employee, which is so important as the company grows. There are 2 people whose jobs are literally to engage with employees, help determine their best interests and past experience to match employees to clients/project that we actually want to work on. Is client work 100% positive? No, but the company clearly cares about the employees.

    There’s also a Leadership Advisory Council made up of employees from all levels that reports what the employees want, things we like, things we think could be better. Leadership responds to each of the items discussed.

    Cons

    Hiring process is competitive; bonuses are on the low end for consulting standards; performance management process is evolving. This is due to some inconsistencies on how performance ratings and promotions are treated. If you do a lot of internal work outside of quality client work, you receive praise but it doesn’t always equate to progressing your career.

    Advice to Management

    Management is listening to the employees and making changes as needed to all the cons listed above; it is appreciated!
