    "Main Brazilian management consulting firm, lead by Matheus Bandeira with 3Capital founders in the board."

    Pros

    The company is growing to markets such as EUA,
    Mexico, Guatemala and Europe. Offer opportunities for those who wants to work in a middle firm (Year Revenue ~150MM U$) with the opportunity to become big. Firm stimulate the consultants to apply for international MBA's and also, with the new projects around the globe, the opportunity to have a international career. Per end, the high relationship among Falconi CEO with the TOP Brazilian executives such as Jorge Paulo Lemman, Carlos Brito, Bernardo Hees, Andre Esteves, Sicupira, Marcell Telles and Gerdau family show to the market that FALCONI is running his strategy to work in the same level os the top 3 management consulting a firms.

    Cons

    High turn over (some formers consultants mention turn over result over 40% year.
    No visibility for the parterniship governance project that is running to define who will be the partners of the company
    Low balance between personal and professional life
    Low salaries if you compare FALCONI with the other management consultants (Among FALCONI, McKinsey, Bain and BCG don't choose Falconi! They pay less and ask for a lot)

    Advice to Management

    Turn over, engagement, visibility for strategic projects and salary must be reviewed.

    The company is not transparent. They over-promise and under-deliver to their employees. They also use half-truths and a lot of bluff when they are hiring.

    I have been working at FALCONI full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Strong culture: The values of the company, such as teaching and learning, are all very well applied (maybe with the exception of transparency)
    - Strong reputation in Brazil: FALCONI is well known and very respected in business
    - Different from other consultancies: The projects are results-driven and not focused on reports. It is more an operational consulting, rather than a strategic one, which is good somehow because you end up learning a lot about implementation and the business routine in different industries and areas.

    Cons

    - Too circumstantial: All depends on your project, the leader and the client. So you can have totally different experiences within months.
    - Bad work/life balance in general: Again it depends on the project, but in most, you will work at least 12 hours per day.
    - Evaluation process in constant change: There were many changes in the last years, and sometimes the company is not very transparent about it.

    Advice to Management

    The biggest asset in FALCONI is people. Try to identify the leaders that do not value - by coaching - the consultants in their teams.

    Pros

    There is a set career path for those who join the company right out of school. The pace of the projects forces employees to learn at a fast pace.

    Cons

    The company has a bad time communicating executive decisions to its consultants in the field. There is a real disconnect. Also there is no real career path for senior hires.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication between the central offices and the consultants in the field. Create a real growth/training plan for senior hires.
