    Pros

    Good work life balance. Work can be very interesting depending on the client you get staffed at. The company culture is great and has fun outings on a yearly basis to get away and celebrate with co-workers.

    Cons

    Lack of strategic leadership and transparency of where the firm is headed. Haven't lived up to the growth plan set in place and it's hard to follow how we plan to grow. Lack of staffing direction and understanding of why candidates are proposed for certain roles and not others.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your people and help to develop and grow early career candidates. Help to better align the leaders in the firm with early career candidates to help build skills necessary to thrive in consulting.

    Pros

    Culture. People. Flexibility. Work/Life Balance.

    Cons

    It definitely took us a bit of time to recover from 2009. The business climate was very different and we've had to adapt and change and it wasn't a smooth process for us, but we are over that and headed in the right direction again.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep our culture at the forefront of our thinking. It's our special sauce and shouldn't be sacrificed, even if it means growing a bit more slowly.
