Pros

Competitive Salary, good experience gained from bad experiences.

Cons

Lots of Micromanaging, good employees are treated like crap, hardworking employees are rewarded with more work and less resources. Management shows favoritism when determining promotions and layoffs. Senior Managers seem to make a lot of bad decisions and mistakes and are very quick to point fingers at lower level employees.

Advice to Management

Management needs an intensive training on Leadership & Ethics

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The pay is on par with the industry. Bonuses completely determined by hours worked with no performance component, which is good and bad, of course. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    I can only speak to the Economics practice and mainly to the Chicago Partners end of it. The practice consists of three separate firms that have been merged into one. There are remnants of LECG, Chicago Partners, and Empiris at this firm. They do very dissimilar work. Chicago Partners concentrates on very high end, large stakes litigation with prominent academic economists. That seems pretty interesting. However, these economists have clearly decided that there's no way to make their earn out and have decided not to bring any cases. A horrible practice to be in for career development and mobility.


  2. "Tremendous opportunities for professional growth, and great mix of clients."

    Pros

    Minimal bureaucracy and nimble, deep platform. Many dedicated and impressively competent employees. High quality client service. Great reputation within the law firm and in-house counsel communities. CEO and CFO are great at communicating with Wall Street.

    Cons

    Notable lack of ethnic diversity. CEO and president are incredibly dedicated and hard-working, and known for integrity and fairness, but lack substantive experience as consultants. Practice leaders are generally poor managers of people, and wholly lacking in leadership skills. Senior lateral hires are often among those who were perceived as most polarizing at prior firms, which makes it even harder to recruit senior laterals who are more partnerial and collaborative.

    Advice to Management

    1) better signal succession plans; 2) replace practice leaders with those who are truly partnerial and collaborative; and 3) go private.
