    I have been working at Strive Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Starting at the top, Strive is led by partners and executives who care truly about doing right by all people in the company. This dedication manifests itself in continuous opportunity for personal, professional, and financial growth for each employee - and I believe is the main reason we continue to attract and retain such amazing talent.

    Cons

    Being a rapidly growing organization, leadership can be pulled in a lot of directions and can be understandably stretched thin at times. Support and guidance is always available, but it employees sometimes have to be proactive to get it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your people and develop future leaders.

    Pros

    Strive honestly cares about their employees and their input and goals.

    Cons

    The dress code could be a little more casual, but I'm nitpicking to find a con here.

    Pros

    Strive Consulting is comprised of absolutely top notch folks. Not only great at they do but more importantly great people. The culture is one wherein people are here to help each other out in any situation. Very transparent and encouraging culture that cares a great deal about exceeding customer expectations.

    Cons

    Bit frantic at times with all of the growth.

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

    Pros

    I have been with Strive for almost four years and hope to be with them many more. From the top down people care about each other. The executives know the team members and truly listen to their input. Over my time with the company benefits have improved considerably based on input from employees.

    I enjoy that the company is small and growing but not too small that we face other challenges such as employment uncertainty. The executive team is very thoughtful about how fast they grow so as not to put the company at risk.

    The talented individuals that are part of company are always willing to help or educate which makes it interesting for me. As a group - it's an amazing group of people representing some of the strongest people in the industry!

    From a career growth perspective, management listens to what your career goals are and coach you to enhance your role in a path that works for you.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE working here and because of all the pros, it's hard to ever think about leaving.

    Cons

    Since the company is growing, sometimes it seems things come slower than you'd want.

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about your people - to me this is what sets you apart!

    Pros

    The people are great - leadership and all of the staff works together. There is lots of energy and folks are motivated to get the job done. Great teamwork and I appreciate the leadership.

    Cons

    There are a few comments on growing pains. While there is some truth to it, I look at it as a good problem to have and it will make the team even stronger as new processes are established.

    Pros

    Senior leadership is incredibly supportive and willing to do what it takes to make sure you have everything you need to be successful. They truly invest in their people. We have Strive events set up often to show appreciation for employees. Fun work environment, very team oriented. Room for career growth down the line. Unlimited PTO.

    Cons

    No flexibility to work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

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

    Pros

    Strive is a company that is continuing it's transition from an IT staffing organization to a Business-Technology Consulting focused organization. With that comes a lot of challenges and opportunities to build out things in the right way. This is a pro only if you have the "builder" mentality and want to be a part of it. When you join Strive you really become a part of the "Strive Family" and are welcomed into a friendly, growth oriented culture that will have your back.

    Cons

    This goes back to the pro but if you expect to have everything laid out for you in terms of operations/process, the opportunity is there to build it but not everything is in place.

    Advice to Management

    Continue focusing on delivering excellent results to your clients along with more strategic type work.

    Cons

    A little too process driven at times.

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

    Pros

    I have been with Strive for about three years and have been part of the evolution in to what we are today. In a saturated consulting market like Chicago, Strive continues to stand out in reputation at our clients, not only because of the caliber of talent but more importantly because of the people, their passion and their representation of Strive's core values.

    Senior leaders at Strive recognize the importance of personal growth of each employee and how that can lend itself to organic growth as a company. The outcome of this is a strong support system with continuous feedback and individual attention to everyone that joins the company.

    We celebrate our victories, share credit and uplift each other.

    Cons

    Strive is not perfect and there are growing pains.

    There is awareness to what we do well and where growth is needed. But more importantly, there is an insatiable appetite for getting better at everything we do.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire great people and continue to encourage feedback from employees

    Pros

    Truly an awesome place to work. The reviews speak for themselves.

    Your voice is truly heard here. Upper management and the leadership team truly value other’s ideas and opinions. The leadership team is extremely passionate about Strive and where they see this organization going. It's inspiring to watch and be a part of.

    Every day I am constantly stunned by the amount of intelligence that surrounds me. From the leadership team, to watching the consultant’s nuts and bolts turn as they work out a problem, it is amazing to feel so valued by such bright people.

    Everyone around you is constantly there to help you and push you to your fullest potential. I have never felt more welcomed in my first few weeks at a new company than I did here at Strive. I would recommend this organization to anyone in any field, not just my own.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a cone- I know I do not view it as one, but… this is a young company that is growing like crazy. With growth comes process changes, which can succeed or fail and sometimes end up going back to the original. If that is not something that you are comfortable with, then this might not be the place for you. If you view growth as an opportunity and changing the status quo as a challenge, then you’d fit right in.
