There is no room for advancement. Performance is not measured by management directly and is not consistent. The QA manager is very removed and too much responsibility is given to one or two individuals. A lot of turnover. Nobody stays long term.
The advisor Assessment got more and more challenging. It's as if the questionnaire was asking the questions that should've been during our phone calls. Needless to say they never paid me after they got more difficult.
I was not an employee (e.g. a client manager), but was a recruited consultant. Their rate of pay for junior people may seem attractive, but they expect a high level of unpaid effort that undermines the consultant's job. They pay well below my normal rates and do not bring good clients. They repeatedly wanted to withhold pay for effort they acknowledged I had worked, so they could force me to work unpaid hours. I told them the contract I signed was not firm fixed price, but hourly and they agreed. But they refused to pay for any phone consultations, any time on the phone with the client managers (who added little value and called frequently), and they would withhold documents and then give me the new document and expect me to read it and revise my writing to include the new material "as a correction" to my existing text (for no pay). The client managers would spend 30-40 minutes of my time quibbling over an hour of my effort. If you are a junior person with few contacts and no job, it might not be a bad way to make some money. If you are competent with skills people need, it is not worth your time.
Long hours with poor compensation to match, which they try to make up for by providing perks in the office. I'd rather have that money in my pocket. A lot of favoritism and cliquey culture.
Stressful job environment. Lots of value placed on performance and hitting targets and very little value on actual long-term retention. As a result, there's a high turnover of contractors, which doesn't look good for the company.
