Company reviews
"This is a highly energized worklplace with a concentration of talent. This place was built by taking the best talent from Alix, A&M, and FTI."
Current EmployeeSenior Manager
I am really happy I am here. Our CEO is on a mission to constantly improve the culture and our leaders really care. It isn't perfect, but we are working towards perfection all the time. It is a place where I learn something new every day. This is not a place for folks who want to coast. It is for those who want to be challenged and grow.

"Good company culture and management"

Management cares about the well being of all employees. It is easy to make your voice heard as this is a mid sized consulting firm. Sometimes flexible schedule, sometimes not.
