    Pros

    Great, intelligent people, still some interesting clients with real issues to be resolved, strong history that could be better leveraged,

    Cons

    Disparate, uncommunicative leadership, focus on the little things, not the big picture. Do not follow their own advice in how changes are identified, designed, and implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Back to basics and focus on needs of the client, not what is the hippest new feature. Leverage core strengths rather than compartmentalizing them.

    I worked at Kepner-Tregoe (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the smartest and most kind people in the world work here. Very established company, long tenure for many, good culture. Wonderful list of clients.

    Cons

    Not progressive in how they market their solutions. Lagging in their openness to new opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in newer delivery methods. Classroom training is going away.

    Pros

    Incredible Processes and Training Programs. Strong and small Team of Partners who encourage Employee involvement and Collaboration to grow new areas of expertise.

    Cons

    Struggled to branch into the consulting world.
    Very ambitious before the economy crashed leaving many unemployed.
    Small firm thus lacking the ability to handle the economic and financial challenges presented in 2008.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on core competencies of Training and Development. Collaborate more with consultancies who offer expertise outside Kepner-Tregoe's. Don't try to branch into the consultancy assignments without a core group of companies again!
