    I worked at SolomonEdwards full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on what office and vertical LOB you're dealing with, but the Dallas and Chicago offices are great and have really knowledgable and ethical professionals with good leadership. Consultants typically have a wealth of knowledge and can provide very valuable resources and advice to clients....you're not getting a green consultant and charged as a senior consult learning on the job like the Big 4.

    Cons

    1. Houston Office - very unethical and unprofessional leadership (primarily driven by 2-3 individuals but is rampant thru out the office); completely incapable of operating in a team-oriented fashion with the rest of the organization and over 95% of the companies conflicts come out of this office; past comments about favortism is directly related to this office primarily, but it is rampant in most offices
    2. CEO - great salesman, but his leadership is way below par; his philosophy is "as long as you're making money (i.e. for ME) you're safe" instead of staying steady with a strategy to grow the company....making $$$ is not a strategy; refuses to deal with the issues of the Houston office as they tend to bring in the $$$, no matter how they unethically do it.
    3. Extremely low communication; although there may be projects available they aren't disclosed company-wide therefore that particular office is able to fill it with people they had to go recruit for although the company may already have someone waiting and available to work on the project; pipeline reports are a joke and communicate nothing valuable for anyone
    4. Name brand?? Who the heck is SolomonEdwardsGroup? There is no marketing efforts on a large-scale to get a recognizable name as no money or effort is put in to getting a name for SEG; constantly losing bids to the Big 4, second-tier public firms, and other consulting groups that have taking the time to get a recognizable name and brand.

    Advice to Management

    Reel in the Houston leaders and their unethical practices; as people leave for permanent positions they don't forget how this group functioned and it will eventually hurt the company when trying to do business with former consultants. CEO needs to lead and develop a real strategy for all offices to focus on delivering and then communicate that strategy. Market, advertise, and market and advertise some more....nobody knows who SEG is much less what they offer.

    I worked at SolomonEdwards as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked a project with Solomon Edwards
    1. WATCH YOUR BACK!!! TOXIC contract employee politics. They don't screen who they hire creating a terrible working environment. Contract employees they hire are toxic losers who are persistently unemployed and make up for it by brown nosing and politics.

    2.They lied about the length of the engagement to sucker you into coming in. Its about half as long a they tell you

    3.Tons of mistakes on my W-2; Corporate background check is extremely unreasonable. Headquarter staff conducting background check was very rude and accusatory.

    4. Almost no training and little conformity in the work product which lead to infighting among
    contract employees on how the work should be done.

    Cons

    - They do compensate fairly but it might cost you more in the long run. A small project with them might make you so disgusted that you'll be afraid to take another job.

    Advice to Management

    Interview your contract employees. Train them. Stop lying to contractors about the length of the engagement.
