Pros

1. People - some of the most talented people I have worked with in my career
2. People - my co-workers love to give back to non-profits and the community
3. People - they are always willing to help with work or personal related issues
4. Challenging projects - I have been challenged on every project so far
5. Leadership - all of the partners I have worked with our outstanding

Cons

You will hear this will most consulting companies, but the travel is the biggest con for me. Doing expense reports is the other complaint, so obviously it's not a big issue.

Advice to Management

Sell more local projects and you will be able to lower attrition rates. Keep up the great work leading our company.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Free coffee and sodas, some lee way in project work.

    Cons

    Questionable work culture, old boys club and buddy system. No real training nor clear mandates in the projects. cut-throat culture and no dissemination of lessons learnt from other projects. no real intellectual contribution and each person/team/georgraphy to their own. Raised concerns are met with intimidation and each practice has its own HR rules. seems like hotch potch of things. Everything is bottom line driven meaning the advice provided has inherent reservations.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on providing leadership to your own staff and help them grow. Create mentoring relationships and provide that as a challenge vehicle to the staff.
