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

    Pros

    - Significant opportunity to develop skills and stretch yourself
    - Very supportive atmosphere, partners will engage and develop consultants
    - Great clients and very low level of 'politics'
    - Casual, fun atmosphere around the office

    Cons

    - Can be unstructured at times
    - Small staff results in sharp spikes in workload

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build up the staff without losing what is special about the firm

    Pros

    They promote volunteer days twice a year and host a special Fun Day event each year.

    Cons

    They tend to hire very young employees just out of college. The atmosphere is at times more like a frat party then a place to work.

    Advice to Management

    They unfortunately do not have the right management in place for certain areas of the business. A director should not be managing 2 jobs only giving 50% of their time to areas in need. Partners are unfriendly and really should get to know their employees.
