    I have been working at The Arnold Group (WA) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Arnold Group is a boutique management consulting firm with inherit advantages of being small -- everyone is pretty agile, very little if any red tape, everyone knowing everyone. Having worked in large corporations before, this experience was welcoming and refreshing. Everyone is smart and focused here. The work can be demanding, but it's worth it from the work-life balance.

    Cons

    Other reviewers summarized it well -- as teams are very small, one is expected to produce quality work with minimal supervision.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the company.

    Pros

    Good opportunities, If you are willing and eager to work this is the place.

    Cons

    They dont have a lot of lengthy job assignments, most jobs are temporary , although they do offer temp-to-hire

    Advice to Management

    Could find better assignments, and also start knowing the managers/bosses ways, mannerisms and actions before sending an employee out to work. Some jobs are so strenuous (i.e. Dean & Deluca) that even making one honest mistake will get you terminated. In close nobody wants to walk into a job site where you have a boss who even his co-workers would rather not be there (3P Processing)

    I have been working at The Arnold Group (WA) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Firm is focused and established in technology commercialization, mainly in commercial applications. Lots of opportunity for interesting, positive, impactful work. Travel NOT a typical requirement. Small firm of good people who care about the work they do and a reasonable balance of life.

    Cons

    Can be client focused to a fault. Small company means less process / support, you need to be ready to do a lot yourself. Unique space makes it tough to hire people needed to grow the business as fast as it could

    I have been working at The Arnold Group (WA) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Super sharp principals. None of the BS of larger firms. Work spans both the strategic and the tactical. Everyone has a background in McK/Bain/BCG/Booz, so there is a high degree of trust that people know how to do great work. Solid comp, healthy work-life balance.

    Cons

    Nobody is going to hold your hand - lots of solo or very small team work. High expectations, so if your work quality isn't good enough, expect to be told so.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the business
