    Pros

    Stunning work life balance when you are not in peak times
    Firm is generous in arranging regular fun events and funding daily fun activities during and after work
    Most colleagues are fun loving making this work experience a memorable chapter of your life

    Cons

    The majority of people including management in this company do not have strategy consulting experience, if they have it is for a short period of time.
    Utterly unhealthy practices especially during partner assessments in the MENA region.
    compliance with business ethics is said to be unnecessary and childish and management believe business ethics are for text books not for real business.
    Low salaries for most employees but very high salaries for management's favorite.

    Advice to Management

    Don't push employees to flag negative comments in Glassdoor cause by doing this you are admitting to your weaknesses that will backfire on you!
    If you really have some larger consultings want to acquire you, seriously sell and do something you are good at.

    I have been working at Solidiance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at Solidiance for over four years. It's been a highly positive working environment where I have had a chance to work with extremely smart colleagues. I have also had the chance to lead numerous projects and worked with cross-cultural teams which is definitely a highlight.

    You learn about numerous geographies and getting to interact with different cultures provides a holistic perspective on what it takes to succeed on different projects.

    One of the best features on working at a niche boutique consulting firm, is that you are expected to punch above your weight.

    Overall the experience has been highly enriching over the years and have seen the company grow immensely during this period.

    Cons

    Due to the numerous projects, there's resourcing crunch which puts pressure on consultants as they may be engaged on more than one project.

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving admin functions which are helpful for employees.
