    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you don't have much talent, yet can spin doctor well, this is the place for you. Looks matter more than substance.

    Cons

    I suspect that most glowing reports here are by people in recruiting and HR. It is encouraged to spin doctor and be deceptive and many in management have no background in what they are sent to deal with at the client. However, they have the "look." The smooth car salesman appearance. That's all that matters here. The spin, the talk, and taking credit where none is due. Having worked in other consulting firms, I can't believe the amount of fluff. The only reason they sell at all is due to college connections and with competition as it is with companies who actually have substantive people, I can't imagine this is sustainable.

    Advice to Management

    Do you know how people actually get hired at Point B? It is getting the rep for fluffy work in the Seattle area.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great people to work with and the support for work/life balance is the best I've ever experienced.

    Cons

    Middle of the road compensation when considering no paid vacation or time off at all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going on the OEI - but consider the impact of any changes on pay. You may need to re-visit the comparison compensation models previously used to ensure attraction and retention of the best candidates and Associates.
