Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Great colleagues and work experience. Small enough that it is easy to build an informal network. Bill actual hours so utilization is really high for those who are staffed.

Cons

Intense working experience, extremely high expectations, and lots of travel. Never in home office, in fact many consultants don't live anywhere near the office to which they are assigned.

    Pros

    Very flexible with time off and personal matters.
    Excellent contract rates.
    Very independent work environment, little micro-managing.
    Great, respectful management.

    Cons

    Transition from contract to permanent position is brutal.
    Little to no feedback about what to expect regarding contract.
    Rate is drastically cut from contract to permanent position.
    Earned bonus program is poorly structured - you actually get paid less as you work more.
    Will bring you contract at a different title, then bump you down once you "convert" over to permanent.

    Advice to Management

    Don't string along contract employees after you put them through the stringent tests. If they meet all the psychological/IQ testing criteria, you should know that those type of employees do not want to have their careers strung along.
