I have worked for BICP for 7 years. BICP is the first company I have worked for that truly cares about their employees. They listen when you have questions or concerns and try to help in any way possible. Most consulting companies don't care if you have to travel long distances or work in challenging environments. BICP works hard to pair up consultants and clients that fit well together. This helps make BICP a great place to work. In my position, I have worked with a lot of contractors, I have had many contractors say they love working with BICP because BICP cares for the contractors they hire. BICP makes contractors feel like part of the company which makes great working environments. Another thing I love about BICP is that no one plays politics. Everyone works to get our jobs done without politics. That is very rare. My skill set has grown a lot with BICP. I have ran projects, worked on proposals, sales calls and worked at conferences. I have experienced a wide range of duties and tasks that has helped my career grow. I have had opportunities that I might not have had with other companies. Overall I really love working with BICP and all of the people I work with.
I don't have any cons with BICP. The only con is with consulting in general. There is a lot of travel so if you don't like travel then being a consultant might not be a fit.

John holds true to his word. I’ve heard from others that they’d thought it was too good to be true during the recruitment process. I guess I felt some of that too but everything John tells you is the truth and how they run their business. The success of their employees, whether with BICP, or the next opportunity is at the heart of their business model. Couldn’t be happier to join such a good group. They’ve been incredible.
Can’t think of much. Maybe more in person gatherings but John and Sean do a great job checking in and trying to get the group together when they’re in town.

The biggest thing that BICP does is do away with much of the administrative work and client relationship management from the individual employee allowing said employee to focus on the work and projects at hand. The BICP management has fostered relationships up and down the West Coast meaning there is a variety of different opportunities, all with good chances for conversion to full time opportunities. When you join BICP you also join their network of current and former employees which stay well-connected and help each other out constantly. Its a great support network for help navigating a new client, career questions, or even just for someone to go get a beer with. The compensation is very good and accounts for the more barebones benefits. Finally, the management is transparent and very agreeable, willing to negotiate and discuss issues that come up and very willing to work hard to get you to work at a client or on a particular project.
PTO is earned on a pro-rated basis, but unpaid leave is not limited (but subject to client approval). Other benefits like 401k (none) and insurance are barebones with the tradeoff of a very competitive base salary and bonuses. I would stress that despite cons, total compensation is still very good (in my opinion).
