Pros

Some smart people
Some cool clients esp on West Coast
Interesting work in the Strategy Execution space. Making simulations can be hard work, but fun.

Cons

Is this a training company or a strategy consulting firm? BTS stands for "Business Training Simulations" but no one at the firm uses those words. Essentially, though; that's what BTS does - it creates training programs for companies based on their financials. It's interesting work but they are VERY expensive for what they do, and they're getting priced out of the market.

Firm is not making money in the US. Bad acquisition a few years ago still not fully integrated. Too top heavy.

Turnover is unparalleled. It will be interesting to see what happens to this company...

Advice to Management

Get your strategy straight -- it's what you're supposed to be famous for. Either become a training company, and lower your overheads; or get better at strategy development, like your "competitors" (McKinsey, Bain etc).
