    Pros

    Very accessible senior management with an entrepreneurial culture and friendly colleagues. Worked on a lot of interesting projects with driven team.

    Cons

    In the financial services practice, we had a very limited number of clients and most of our work was centered on the regulatory space.

    Advice to Management

    Specific to the financial services practice, hire senior leadership with proven experience who can broaden client engagement opportunities and practice offerings.

    Pros

    Great culture, great people that delivers exciting and transformational work to retail clients. Projects are great and has a solid name in the retail market.

    Cons

    Because the firm is a small or boutique style firm, the support staff is quite lean and many of the administrative processes are antiquated.

    Advice to Management

    Continue getting great clients and continue hiring the right people that fit the culture of the firm. Never give up on the culture of Kurt Salmon.

    Pros

    - Small Firm Culture: Casual, everyone knows and cares about each other. You get a lot of opportunities and exposure at a young age due to lean team
    - Premiere Clients: The client list is second to none in retail

    Cons

    - Cannot figure out how to manage big projects - large projects consistently are disasters with low satisfaction ratings
    - Limited exit opportunities unless you want to work at a retailer....which not many people do unless it is a strategy role
    - Low pay that is not on par with other consulting firms and other competitive job industries. Bonuses are <6% of salary and base salaries bands haven't even been adjusted for inflation in years...management has no desire to change this

    Advice to Management

    Provide more visibility to how the firm is trending towards long term goals
    Update compensation to reflect the market
    Learn how to manage and staff large projects
