    I worked at Litmus Group full-time

    Pros

    I have been working at Litmus Group full-time

    Pros

    - Camaraderie: teams pull together to help each other out and keep things feeling fun even when they are busy. There's a great social scene beyond the core work. - Less corporate feel: there is a higher degree of transparency and empowerment then at larger firms. Its easy to reach out to people in different offices at different levels for ideas and support. A lot less political. - Exposure: you work in different industries,...

    Cons

    - Dealing with ambiguity: the work can be less straight forward and structured then it would be at older more established firms. Your often generating new IP, or closely tailoring it to specific clients context and needs rather then recycling established material and templates. - Less brand recognition: you might find yourself explaining who the firm is and what they do more often then if you were with a Big 4 or Top...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to embrace more "millennial" working patterns like: - Agile project management, - out of cycle promotions, - sabbaticals, - virtual offices and collaboration spaces - alliances with startups

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Litmus Group full-time

    Pros

    There are some very talented consultants at the lower levels wanting to make a difference.

    Cons

    Leadership style is from the dark ages Boys club at the leadership level No self awareness at the leadership levels No investment on their 2 core products - People and IP Amateur hour and very uninspiring It's a bodyshop and doing very little 'real' consulting

    Advice to Management

    Attend some leadership courses to raise the EQ and self awareness levels at the partnership level and start investing in your people and your IP.
