P&N Consulting - Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – May 26, 2016
The collaborative environment at P&N allowed me to learn so much in my time there. The team environment was there, but there was also time to sit and dive into a spreadsheet on my own. The benefits are decent, the management is kind, and the company as a whole understands and values a work-family balance.
P&N did a lot of layoffs recently. They said that determining factors for who would be laid off would be based on qualitative measures. Then explain how someone who volunteered twice to do a special role that nobody wants to do, actually performed it for several weeks until a change in the project changed course, always had high productivity, never had a meeting with Management about any issues, and the only meeting ever in which all employees sat through one-on-one the employee got a raving review with 3-4 times the performance in their first three months there? Oh, they weren't in the inner circle. They didn't go to lunch with the two Managers. One Manager purposely (Logan P) never said hi to this person or cared. The other Manager was OK, but Logan was a know-it-all guy who thought he was funny, but most people talked bad about him behind his back.
Good balance between work and life, nice OT pay
Management has favorites, You will be laid off if you're not friends with them or hang after work Logan, you're still not funny and were the worst Manager I've EVER had, bar none

P&N is a great company to work for all in all, but you have to remain focus on your goals while you are there. Depending on the department you are in there is room for growth. You will learn a lot working for this company educational and life wise.
