      Making changes, but headed in the right direction

      Nov 2, 2020 - Master Practitioner 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - It is easy to make a difference and carve your own niche if you want to - Internal growth is available, but you have to make it happen - Trying to do their best to react in a challenging situation - Creating a lot of transparency into what they're doing and why - unlimited vacation policy is real, leaders encourage taking vacation - Current focus is on limiting the work that the firm does internally to focus on work that aligns with firm strategic goals

      Cons

      - It is easy to get caught up in working lots of hours - Internal growth is available, but you have to make it happen - It all comes back to the billable hours - More difficult to attain promotion if you're in the practitioner track because of sales targets - Utilization targets are there regardless of the amount of vacation you take - Bonus structure has changed again to now being purely performance-based

      Stay away if professional development is a priority

      Jun 7, 2021 - Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      *Friendly colleagues *Collegial work environment *Great place if you are interested in project management, change management, or public sector

      Cons

      *If professional advancement is a priority, you will not find many opportunities to grow beyond the position you are hired into. Leadership's stated commitment to growth is not reflected in promotion opportunity *Stagnant salaries *Frequent changes to variable compensation structure means your overall salary might decrease over time * Constant internal restructuring with very little communicated rhyme or reason *High turnover of talented employees finding significantly higher salary and promotion opportunities elsewhere

      Fantastic culture

      Pros

      Best place I’ve ever worked. You’re able to impact at an enterprise level while doing your day job. It’s encouraged.

      Cons

      Don’t see the talent at upper mid level that should be executive and there are plenty of executives who’ve “done their time” to get there but aren’t qualified or have the skills.

      Avoid Like the Plague

      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There were a few knowledgable, good people but most just got by. beyond that... there were no pros.

      Cons

      Leadership that had no substance, did not know how to lead, lost the only account they had in our region and had no clue how to get more. Treated people like dirt with no remorse about it. The onboarding process was horrible, their accounting/payroll - they charged double tax until your caught them on it and insisted they return the money, they routinely lost your timesheet in their system and so did not pay you until you hounded them. Lower level management was 2-faced, they did not support the consultants. Performance was not rewarded, skating by was.
