    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 !

    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.
