    Current Employee - Management Consulting Manager in Chicago, IL
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    ability to influence decisions, develop client relationships, lead engagements, name on resume, working on becoming more of a management consulting organization as opposed to a bunch of audit people pretending like they're consultants

    Cons

    public accounting rules limit management consulting effectiveness, conservative accounting culture struggles with management consulting business to grow business, accounting culture allows partners to be promoted without leadership, industry depth, book of business, or competency in skill areas (strategy, operations, technology)

    Advice to Management

    watch who you promote, cultivate people to be able to fill the higher roles and let them know what your plans are for them, hold partners accountable for their performance. also, reward your managers and directors who have been loyal to the firm for 7-10 years instead of leaving them at a pay disadvantage relative to the market
