    I have been working at Phase One CG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One's opinion is wholly relative to his/her consulting project but I truly enjoyed the receptiveness and open-door policy of my POCG managers. There was continuous communication and a sincere effort to ensure that the project and deliverables matched the needs of myself and the federal client, respectively.

    The CEO also recently displayed transparency when communicating with all staff about corporate operations in the wake of uncertainty regarding the federal budget under the new executive administration. I enjoyed a recent all-hands discussion.

    If the right opportunity presented itself, I would work with POCG again.

    Cons

    Ultimately, the project was not a good fit but I gained invaluable experience providing technical and policy support to senior management in a cabinet-level agency.

    Consider quarterly all-hands meetings that begin in the afternoon instead of the morning. In this regard, employees would complete client deliverables in the morning.

    Telecommuting is contingent upon client preferences.

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate the positive attitude demonstrated from the top-down, especially with the approachable CEO. It's a breath of fresh air compared to the behemoth consulting firms with a longer history with too many layers between the C-suite and employees.

    I have been working at Phase One CG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management is receptive to ideas and change.
    Phase one cares about the well-being of it's employees. For example, for benefits registration day, employees have access to a financial advisor, a nutritionist and a masseuse.
    The size of the company is a major pro. The team sizes are intimate. You are not just a number here, and you're not getting lost in the mix.

    Cons

    Many people do not know one another outside of their immediate team, people who are onsite every day so not have the opportunity to interact with internal operations employees

    Advice to Management

    Continue to bring employees together, obtain feedback from employees, incorporate a career management training

    Cons

    This place is a joke .Please beware of the false promises they make before joining.They don't value talent and their culture is something that cannot be concealed with the help of few "good reviews".Truth is no one stays with them for long.Reality strikes hard only in few days into the company.They get negative feedback from their clients most of the time!!!!Expect you to work on most of the weekends and there is no structure inside the company.It runs on self made rules!!!!
