Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Great corporate culture, strong opportunities for upward mobility in consulting without an MBA, and a focus on objectively interesting markets (for example: satellites, space launches, big data analytics, cyber security)

Cons

Culture can be political because it's a small company (I.e., your annual review isn't necessarily objective or performance-based), HR and organizational processes in general aren't always streamlined and have suffered from growing pains, and work/life balance can be a struggle, especially if you're good at what you do

Advice to Management

Pay attention to time management and organization; make sure to take the time to coach analysts and capitalize on their talent whenever possible

    Pros

    Strong feedback culture; ability to take responsibility beyond years of experience; quick career acceleration for high performers; frequent company events; generally flat structure with very accessible and helpful partners and other senior management

    Cons

    Hours fluctuate and can be long; personal achievement sometimes merits receiving more work, which can sometimes be to a fault; limited opportunity to travel for more junior employees

    Pros

    Avascent allows its employees to grow at their own pace in a collegiate atmosphere. As an entry-level analyst, I especially appreciate the time that my peers and project managers have taken to acclimate me to the way in which we do business.

    Cons

    Much of Avascent’s work focuses on the defense industry. Employees at the Avascent Group gain a good understanding of how government and industry interact, but may not get as much exposure to how purely commercial industries function.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership within the firm has done an excellent job of providing employees with the tools necessary to develop and hone professional skills.
