    one of the best consultancies I've worked at.

    Apr 9, 2016 - Consultant in Bellevue, WA

    Pros

    Good office environment with flexible options for telecommuting and otherwise. The work-life balance here is great! Decent benefits, great bunch of people, and a willingness from ownership team to solve any workplace or cultural concerns.

    Cons

    It's consulting work, so if you're longing to own a program and drive deep strategic vision, you should be looking at one of their clients, not at an agency. You can get pigeonholed into samey, silo'd work if you don't develop yourself outside of working hours. Sometimes management has been defensive about feedback, but they do rally and come with heartfelt intention to improve the workplace.

    Pros

    Love the culture, work environment

    Cons

    Treated employees hired to do contract work as contractors. Treated us well, but regarded as disposable. Lots of talk about culture, but didn't apply to those of us who were rented out.

    Good Experience and Professional Challenges

    Pros

    Solid leadership constantly striving to help employees grow their professional skills and experience. Flexible schedules to match client projects. Social company with many events and networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Limited selection of client projects. Heavy on the Microsoft projects and few clients with long term contracts. If you are in-between projects you are placed "on the bench" waiting for your next project.

    Pros

    Dine at nice places and the consultants are skilled

    Cons

    The count of those that marked "helpful" under the negative reviews as opposed to the positive reviews tells you everything you need to know! BEWARE NO MATTER WHAT EXCUSES THEY TELL YOU. THEY LIE!

    Love Society, Dislike who Acquired them

    Mar 4, 2017 - Senior Consultant in Los Angeles, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Consultants not located at HQ work remotely serving clients in their local market. Coworkers were great to work with as a team on a project Provide hardware (laptop, dock station, monitor) for desk set up if remote

    Cons

    Things turned sour for me after Society was acquired by EY. It didn't feel like the right fit since Society is not in the accounting/finance/risk business. True, this big 4 firm has a consulting/advisory arm but still, it didn't feel right. It is THE reason why I am seeking another job at the moment. The big 4 firms make me feel as if I should be so grateful for the chance to work with them. I am not fresh out of college or MBA school. I am an experienced professional who does not work in accounting/finance/risk. When I tell people what I do and who I work for, they look at me like "huh? EY does that?". Not doing my resume any good

    Fun company, work hard/play hard atmosphere

    Oct 28, 2016 - Finance Department in Bellevue, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, cool building. Company events and afternoon happy hours. Company pays for stocked kitchen and some breakfast and lunches. Happy working environment. You work hard, they will reward you. Allows friendly dogs.

    Cons

    work life balance was off - maybe different for others in different departments. Long hours worked and for salary (no additional benefit but still a requirement of the job). No real access for development and moving up in the company.

    Excellent company, one of the best

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible, lots of smart people, treat their employees very well

    Cons

    This is not really a con, but the culture is a bit youth-focused and cliquey. The management team tends to just hire their friends for all internal positions, so there was very much an "in-crowd", including the owners, who were always going to Hawaii together, etc. Awkward for those of us who were not included.
