Pros

The culture of the company is pretty good. Work from home is a plus. Benefits are pretty comparable to other companies. Vacation/ time off is pretty good. Soon as you are either a senior consultant or higher, you get 5 weeks of sick time and/ or vacation

Cons

Promotions and salary increases are far and few. Folks on engagements are treated pretty harshly in my opinion. They are treated like as if they were step children. Even though most engagement folks obviously work in the field and at client sites, I still think that more personal involvement from their engagement managers is necessary so that they don't feel like they have been disregarded, etc.

Advice to Management

Give the folks at the bottom the adequate bonuses that they deserve so they will remain loyal too.

    "Great place to work, great people and work/life balance, but poorly run company"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great people and the work is interesting. The work/life balance is excellent (depending on sector - Public Services is great), not just for a consulting firm, but for any firm!

    Cons

    The C-level management team is borderline incompetent. There is no reason a consulting firm with approx $3.5B in revenue and strong utilization should be as close to bankruptcy as BearingPoint is. The overall benefits packages, namely the 401k program, is a joke. They match 25 cents on the dollar and it is vested like a pension.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company and leave.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The work is good. Most of the time the people you work with are great folks committed to their work. The projects are mostly very good. New implementations are available to work for. Maintenance projects are not that many in number. My experience working with my MD was great.

    Cons

    Company is not doing great. Stock is at its worst ever. Everyone is worried about what happens next. Most people who are not on projects have been laid off. Employee morale is at its lowest ever. Most people who are still working here are now here because of Visa issues or because they cannot find a job elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate about the problems and keep employees informed.
