Pros

If you can land the right assignment, it is a good place to start. Make sure that you work closely with your resource manager to get great assignments that will advance your career.

Cons

Poor senior leadership. Most know the consulting business, but have no clue as to how to manage an organization. For a company that its major asset is human capital, they have no understanding of basic human resource management.
Make sure that you work closely with your resource manager to get the right assignments to advance your career. You will really have to apply yourself to make this happen. Leadership is not likely to move you to an assignment that will advance your career if you are working at another client. Try to avoid being bounced around from PM's or MD's as much as possible. You can very easily fall through the cracks and not get noticed for salary reviews and promotions.

Advice to Management

Establish a discipline within the organization, and execute on your plans.

    Pros

    1. There are great opportunities to have responsibilities early in the career. From day 1, you can have exposition to the client, which is very important in a consulting job. Teams are usually small and not very structured. Therefore responsibilities on a given project are not based only on the job title or the experience, but mainly on the actual performance in the project

    2. The new management tea is dedicated to turn the company around and they launch many initiatives to empowers the employees such as a training program at the Yale School of Business

    3. There is an important knowledge base within the company which helps develop deep knowledge in the practice areas of expertise.

    Cons

    1. The company is not doing well overall - therefore, there have been many layoffs and there is only a little opportunity to get a raise or a promotion. This year the CEO is saying that the bonus pool is bigger than ever, so we will see how it end up working...

    2. Mentoring is not working well, it is not part of the culture of the company. There are great mentors but you need to be lucky to work with them...

    3. Compensation is below average for similar job experience. At the same time, hours can add up easily and you may end up working over 70 hours a week in the worst case project

    Advice to Management

    You need to create an environment where employees feel comfortable talking about management problem, worries about the company etc


  2. "Do your research first"

    Pros

    4 weeks PTO is about the only positive thing about BE.

    Cons

    Management treats people very unfairly. New hires with no experience are brought in at higher salaries than people who have already proven themselves. Do your research and make sure you get paid fairly or they will bring you in as low as possible. They will promise to give you increases, but they never come through. People doing the same job are paid very differently. Bottom line - they treat employees poorly and do not pay fair at all. They are losing alot of people due to this. It seems as if they pay men drastically higher then female employees as well!!!

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people fairly or you will continue to see large numbers finding jobs where they are paid what they are actually worth.
