      I have been working at Jabian Consulting

      Pros

      Really interesting work with intelligent people who care. Leadership continues to work on making it an even better place to work.

      Cons

      Sometimes it is too much of a good thing. People don’t always pay as much attention to the great things as they do to the things needing improvement. The company is growing, which creates change. They really stay focused on maintaining the culture and purpose though.

      Advice to Management

      Don’t get “ho hum” about the unique strengths. Celebrate them with enthusiasm. Reinforce that continuous improvement does not mean we aren’t great too. Partners need to grow ahead of the organization too, in a visible way.

      Great people who love what they do, autonomy to direct your own career path, support for individuals to pursue their interests, no travel expected,

      Pros

      - Colleagues - Autonomy - Responsibility - Senior leadership interaction

      Cons

      - Lack of full flow through of vision to meaningful and relevant objectives for employees, including KPI's, targets and incentives - Lack of partnership or ownership (equity) path - Lack of relevant skills and leadership development program - Reactive vs. pro-active actions to growth, especially lumpy growth

      Advice to Management

      - Recognize your limitations, seek experienced board of directors to help with vetting strategic decisions, especially how and when to invest in growth vs. efficiency - Keep tweaking the career model, but seek to simplify it to reduce confusion and improve alignment to firm vision / objectives and needs - Listen to your people, don't stick your head in the sand when you get honest feedback - Quickly put in place a...

      Incredible growth happening. The addition of new people has energized the company and you get to be a part of something dynamic. If you want to do something, you have the ability to create the path forward and make it happen.

      Cons

      Hard to hire at the pace needed and have had to see work turned down. Recruiting is working overtime.

        I have been working at Jabian Consulting

        Pros

        All of the people who work at Jabian are brilliant so the bar is set high in terms of what is expected. Everyone works well together and is willing to assist on projects and take time to help put together internal events and socials.

        Cons

        growing pains as the company moves from 1 city with 60 people to 3 cities with 100 people. Leadership has trouble giving up on some things.

        I have been working at Jabian Consulting full-time

        Pros

        You are really able to pursue your passions at Jabian both with client work and internally - I have had the opportunity to work with amazing people in several different industries and no matter your position your opinion matters, people listen and your work is important.

        Cons

        Compared to a larger firm it's more difficult to become an expert in one area or industry; it's much easier to become a generalist with an area of focus.

        Advice to Management

        Continue to listen and support internal initiatives to help improve the company - because from what I've seen you've been doing a great job !
