    Pros

    The company invests heavily in the professional and personal development of it's employees. The company knows exactly how to select the highest quality talent that best fit the company. Company leadership cares deeply about every employee. Leadership listens intently to employee feedback and takes the appropriate action to improve the company. The company truly desires to be a great company.

    Cons

    The company is growing rapidly and on occasion growing pains do surface. The good news here is that the pain doesn't last very long as corrective measures are usually in the works before the pain shows up.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen closely to those around you. Learn the difference between chatter and challenge. Continue to be great servant leaders.

    Pros

    A company committed to its people and culture, Sendero is a wonderful place to work. People, even at the highest levels, truly care about each other, and it definitely has a "family" feel to it. Because it's a growing company, there are tons of opportunities to gain experience and progress quickly.

    Cons

    There is a lack of diversity at all levels of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Consider more flexible work arrangements, including more opportunities to work remotely.

    Pros

    The PEOPLE!!! I have never met such an amazingly kind, driven, caring group of people. This company cares about its people and the communities it serves--we are even given paid volunteer hours each month! I have worked at a couple of companies and have NEVER experienced such an amazing workplace.

    Cons

    I genuinely cannot think of any cons.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Sendero full-time

    Pros

    There was a lot of focus on coaching new Associates and Analysts with company-developed material, career advocates, and direct managers on assigned projects. For younger folks, it's a good company to start with because of the large group of associates they hire every year. A prime opportunity to network with peers.

    Cons

    Employees are expected to complete several internal commitments that are factored into their annual evaluation. This is in addition to client work. Internal commitments and selling work increase as people are promoted to manager and senior manager levels. Management decision-making is opaque. Company policies and expectations of employees do not reflect the company-touted culture.

    There are so many nuances found in this company that are simply hard to describe. It all revolves around the organic culture that Sendero prides itself on.

    Cons

    If your not used to constant change this can be a downside. With a growing firm there are always changes going on, but they have been for the most part more beneficial to all employees and in our better interest.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring great people, and always keep considering raising your salaries as the firm grows so that we can hang on to all of the great people we hire.
