    I have been working at Maine Pointe full-time

    Pros

    I was recently told by a client that Maine Pointe was the best firm they've worked with and that was after Accenture, Alvarez & Marsal, and Mckinsey came through. MP has some very talented, hard-working people and thus produces great results on client engagements. If you can adapt to the fast-paced, demanding, results-oriented culture you will do well.

    Cons

    Turnover is high in consulting as it is, and Maine Pointe is not immune to that. Travel is mandatory for consultants and its more stringent than the big-four and other major consulting firms. We believe value is created working should to shoulder with the client and there just isn't a way around that deeply-rooted cultural belief.

    Pros

    Maine Pointe has had a strong history of growth. This is powered by the company's innovative approach "Total Value Optimization" to transforming our clients and delivering exceptional value. I have seen many people grow personally and financially through their tenure at Maine Pointe - truly a meritocracy! Recent acquisition by the SGS Group will further expand the opportunities for solid performers.

    Cons

    Not a good place for people looking to pontificate and watch others work.

    Pros

    Very successful track record of achieving results for clients. Significant resources spent on development on talent and continuous improvement initiatives. Great place for high performance individuals to be acknowledged and to grow. Major focus on client satisfaction is a core strength and has been foundational in Maine Pointes growth and success. Great place for successful leaders to be champions amongst peers.

    Cons

    High performance culture not for everyone. 100% client satisfaction means individuals contribute to an overall team approach and provide exceptional value for clients. Weaker performers stand out in this culture.
