    I have been working at Point B full-time

    Pros

    - Great Work Life Balance - Smart Co-workers that have a lot to offer - Travel is optional

    Cons

    -Wet Blanket over you in terms of pay increases and promotions - Used to value its culture and people, now the firm cares primarily for the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Point B has historically been a firm that has very tenured consultants that can charge a high margin. As younger talent joined the firm, Point B has been able to still charge a premium for Point B resources while paying Associates, Analysts etc. way less (which is great for the company as a whole). But after those more junior folks develop and excel, responsibilities increase etc. pay needs to reflect the additional...

    I have been working at Point B full-time

    Pros

    Awesome people, needs of client are priority over making money. Highly ethical.

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid. Consultants seem to have more work life balance and better compensation than other areas of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Operations keeps the machine running. Realize the value of your non consulting employees with more than words. Don't risk losing good people with scrawny compensation and bonus. Recognize the dedication and hard work that loyal employees make.

    I worked at Point B full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    There are some really smart people there and decent live/work balance.

    Cons

    1. They beat you over the head with culture. If you have a good culture you dont need to keep pushing it on people. And saying things like - you need to fit our culture is more exclusive than inclusionary. God forbid you dont fit their culture. You must go out to events. 2. As a consulting firm they tried to build a sales team. But as consultancies usually do they think their consultants can sell - that is where there...

    Advice to Management

    Be more active and take charge in the company. Keep your political comments to yourself and if you ever attempt sales again hire real sales leaders and sales people and give them the power to define the sales process. Consultants dont sell that is why they are consultants.

    Pros

    The best culture I've been a part of. The people are amazing and do care about you as a person.

    Cons

    Leadership will put you into roles that you are sometimes not suited for or not experienced enough to handle. This happened to me multiple times, and when a project went south I was the one who was blamed. This is not a place to come to early in your career.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting growth ahead of the development of your young talent. It will burn them out.

    I have been working at Point B full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance. You're treated like a person, not a work-machine. There is a culture of appreciation and positivity without trying to hide that there are things they can work on.

    Cons

    There's a lot of change, it's scary that all of the changes are happening at once.

    June 11, 2018COO

    We appreciate the thoughtful feedback you’ve provided. Agree, it does feel like several different change plans are in place. It also feels a bit a unique, AND, hopefully, :) like an exciting time in our firm’s history as we evolve to meet the dynamic needs of the marketplace. Right ...
