Pros

TP now TW is truly a brand name consulting firm. Most people have heard the name and respect the quality of the firm.

Cons

In the office I worked, it was awful. No leadership, no communciation, no open sharing of projects or ideas. It was a toxic environment with little imagination or desire to improve. I think the heirarchial structure is really detrimental to the productivity and development of the firm. Too many people have been there for too long and have no idea how other, productive businesses operate.

Advice to Management

Put people in leadership positions who have leadership qualities. Give clear direction on goal attainment and advancement. Attempt to reduce the overinflated opinions of senior level management as they are typically out of touch and egomanical.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The people can be excellent

    Cons

    Upper management seems totally checked out at all times and it trickles down to every level of work. The merger has been especially poorly handled.

    Advice to Management

    Stop just collecting a paycheck and engage in your job.

    Pros

    People are great to learn from and intellectual capital is extremely helpful and easy to access.

    Opportunities to cross lines of business and learn.

    Cons

    During my 3 years at TP, the opportunities for professional development were cut and not offered.

    Private held company culture can be difficult to break into if you come from another firm.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication open to employees and offer internal professional development opportunities. Invest into in-person meetings when the client is hesitant to pay for consultant travel.
