    "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.

    - Culture based on learning and knowledge share
    - Most consultants are friendly and easy going
    - Great benefits when you are allocated out of your home city

    Cons

    - Scarce possibilities of growth after the early years
    - Weak peer effect

    Advice to Management

    PDCA has transformed industry in latter decades, but methods based on continuously improvement will not generate disruptive improvements like they did in the past, innovation will not come from a hastily made business plan. Keep PDCA related products on the shelf, but an open mind for newer trends on management focused on innovation, services and IT may do no harm.
