      I worked at Kurt Salmon full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Some amazing projects (sometimes needed to network / leverage relationships to get staffed on the right opportunities). Really great people and culture. Engagement managers / clients generally respected work-life balance (although some projects were worse than others). My colleagues at KS were (are) some of my closest friends.

      Cons

      Potential to travel every week (not always a Con, but it's the reality). Unless you live in New York. Your career path is in many ways shaped by the projects that are being sold (need to be very clear about your career goals to make sure you can get the experiences you need to grow). While I was there, some projects were poorly scoped / resourced. Some projects were overstaffed and people were underutilized --...

      I worked at Kurt Salmon full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Some of their senior people (Sr. Mgrs +) are the best in the business in terms of expertise, leadership, mentoring, ethics and value. Working alongside these folks can be quite an experience if one is open to learning from them, from the example they set.

      Cons

      Just like in any org, there are some D and F level players, even in the senior roles who were typically hired from outside. Some have been asked to leave by more than 3 clients, squandered millions in client money yet remain at the org in highly visible leadership positions.

      Advice to Management

      Hold partners and directors accountable to the same (at least) or a higher standard than the rest of the organization. Many people at that level are resting on their laurels, abusing their title to mistreat staff or escape unscathed when they make costly mistakes that cost the company people, reputation, revenue and time/money to the clients.
