    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 !

    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.

    Pros

    After working with Jabian for over 6 years, I have seen the leadership stay true to the reason they started the company 9 plus years ago. They are very open to ideas and suggestions from consultants at all levels. Consultants are able to grow not only at the client site, but by contributing to internal capabilities.

    Cons

    You are not able to work within a specific industry or vertical. But if you are tired of being "silo'd" by larger firms, Jabian is a great place to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great work!

    I worked at Jabian Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Love the way Jabian sells work through relationships; all employees are smart, driven, talented and have servant attitudes for each other and their clients; unique ability to pursue passions; fervent support for the community, especially through Jabian's 501 (c) 3 Jabian Cares; ability to put personal stamp on company; strong commitment to personal growth; no up or out mentality

    Cons

    Work and life are integrated and not balancing acts here. Know what combination works best for you. You may start feeling overwhelmed if you don't know your limit, take on too much and/or don't learn to say no.

    I have been working at Jabian Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Everyone is in control of their own career at Jabian. The flexibility and possibilities can sometimes be overwhelming, but once people get into their groove and focused on the things they care most about they find themselves doing things they've always dreamed about but never could do. Conflict is rare or nonexistent at Jabian due to careful selection of employees in the recruiting process. Jabian is a true family environment where people look out for each other and get behind each other when someone is having a rough go of it. The client work is interesting, and the care the firm takes to make sure you're enjoying what you're doing is unmatched. The number of opportunities each week to connect with your fellow Jabian colleagues is one element of the culture that is truly unmatched. From a mentoring lunch, to a Jabian Happenings (monthly meetings alternating between business and social outings), recruiting happy hours, to community activities and professional society events, we are always hanging out together. The technology we get is as good or better than anything we had with the big consulting firms.

    Cons

    As mentioned in "pros" above, it can be overwhelming to have the level of autonomy and flexibility that Jabian provides. This is not a 40 hour a week company, but the extra time is what makes for a significant amount of the fun and growth-oriented activities. Figuring out how to balance that with client work, family demands and community events can be daunting, but each ebbs and flows from month to month and year to year that once people figure that out, they adapt well. But it is a constant struggle to figure out where the best places to spend your time are.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look for ways to offload business operations functions from the three partners to focus on growth and scalability. Jabian is a fantastic place to work. Keep spending time figuring out how to communicate that better to supercharge recruiting.

    I have been working at Jabian Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people at Jabian are extremely collaborative and willing to help each other. The culture and operational structure are set up to encourage employee's entrepreneurial spirit. The people really care about their client's ultimate success. The leadership team walks the walk and are actively engaged at every level of the firm.

    Cons

    Expectations are high for all individuals that join the firm. You are expected to take control of your own career and not be afraid to make your own path.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain focus on culture as company scales in size
