    I worked at Wise Men Consultants as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Provided me with steady work and stayed out of my way.

    Cons

    They used Priceline to book my trip to Europe even though I was contracted to a major oil company and they would have been completely reimbursed. The hotels that I stayed in on that trip were not good and I did not get much rest.

    Advice to Management

    Don't always take the cheap way out.

    I have been working at Wise Men Consultants (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary on time, other than that i can not think of any Pros.

    Cons

    A lot, very poor benefits, no career growth, 0% job security. they suck your efforts and leave you on the road once your billing is complete no matter how many years you work for them.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to grow, trust your employees and invest a least 10% of your income.

    I worked at Wise Men Consultants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was misled to believe they have structure and resources to set you up for success. We were given monster.com, rigzone.com and bullhorn.com to mine for candidates while recruiting and any other websites, you must come up with it on your own at your own expense. Also, you are forced to share logins due to owner not wanting to spend any extra money on individual logins. Every office expenses are kept to a minimum or none existence. There was promise of Crawfish Boil, Company Events, and fun working environment.

    Cons

    Company(owner/CEO) refuses to pay for mile reimbursement, parking fees accrued through client visits, or covered costs associate with events where the CEO speaks, commissions withheld, poor benefits, no matching in 401K, get 12 PTO annually (1 PTO monthly, used this as vacation, sick days, this is it!), extremely micro managed, must provide daily activity report extracted through Bullhorn and excel spreadsheet, poor and lacking business structure, lack of professionalism, undefined methodology. Turnover is uncommonly high! No training offered! The owner of the company sits in the same office and overly micro managed the office of 6 employees. The office is so quiet that you can hear a pin dropped due to fearing any type of laughter is frown upon from the CEO/owner of this small business. Any conversation (business or personal) must be kept to a whisper. This is not a consulting firm, but an overly priced to the client staffing company.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to spend money to make money. Invest in your employees and they will work hard for you. Trust them and they will grow your business for you. Reward your employees for doing a good job and create a defined career path for growth. Promote positive, fun, working environment. Decrease turnover. Communicate with your small team; it’s important to interact with them. Treat your employees with respect and common courtesy. Pay your employees the market rate accordingly.
