    I have been working at Rolf Jensen & Associates full-time

    Pros

    Everyone that I meet is friendly and genuine. I enjoy my job there and see opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    There was some flux with the merger, and some people were lost, but generally the ship remained steady, and most of the shake up occurred higher than me.

    I have been working at Rolf Jensen & Associates full-time

    Pros

    Friendly and nice people in the local offices. Benefits are alright, but the cost to employee goes up each year.

    Cons

    The expectations are unreasonable. Technical staff is expect to be billable, seek new opportunities, and marketing the firm. The revenue plans individually and as an office are rediculously high. They recently cut our office off at the knees by laying off our Business Development Associate. She was a great value to our office by helping with client relationships, teaming opportunities, and seeking new work. Out of no where they decided to lay off 3 BDA's, all women in their 40's. They kept the two men. Coincidence??? I think not. This is a male dominated firm.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the overhead, too many non producers. Get a clue and a plan!

    I worked at Rolf Jensen & Associates full-time

    Pros

    benefits; good people; location; hours

    Cons

    Management. Communication. too reliant on economy without "plan b" to save jobs. candidates are not given proper information. interview process drawn out; company cannot be trusted.

    Advice to Management

    Stop waiting until the last minute to communicate changes that can put others in a life/death struggle. it borders on murder.

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good and that's it.

    Cons

    Everything and anything. I wouldn't wish this job on my worst enemy.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and have an open door policy

    I have been working at Rolf Jensen & Associates full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great mission, collaborative culture, good pay and excellant benefits. Strong sales culture with dedicated staff to lead and train junior staff. True consulting work ethic. Senior leadership wants to keep firm employee owned - working on a game plan to make happen.

    Cons

    Technical talent is limited by FPE school gradutes. Must look outside FPE ranks and train. Global economic presures affect business and work load.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reach out to staff for input and stay the course. Opportunities exist for junior staff but they need to earn them. Continue to offer ownership opportunities. Staying employee owned is important.

    Pros

    Interesting work kept me busy even as an intern. I got to see a lot of different job sites and work on a variety of projects.

    Cons

    Work load in the company overall was very dependent on the economy. A few offices had to close and people were let go or moved to other offices while I was there.

    Pros

    Able to work on a lot of different projects and learn a lot. Very dedicated to training.

    Cons

    Senior management does not seem connected to the workforce and really does not take input very well. More of a speak up if you want to agree style of managment

    Advice to Management

    Empower your managers

    Pros

    Good group of people that work in the Chicago office. Overall, the company is good and lets you do your job. The best pro is the location of the office and the ease of leaving early/coming in later is nice.

    Cons

    Bad management and way to much overhead. employees are just numbers to the SVP of the company while they keep cutting the bread-makers the SVP's are sitting comfy.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and respect your employees and it just might be a better company for everyone. No need for the high profit margin during this economy... time to reduce !
