Are employees at Altman Vilandrie & Company generally happy and/or satisfied?

Pros

AV&Co. will give you a lot of exposure to TMT with both corporate and investor clients. The work tends to be fast-paced and hypothesis-driven. Very proactive in giving feedback. Staffing, recruiting, HR, etc. have a great open door policy. Low travel means you have more direct contact with partners and other analysts and consultants. You will actually know the people you are working with and form close friendships with some of them. If you want to stay in consulting, AV doesn't limit you. You can get promoted from within even without an MBA as long as you show the skills necessary for the next level. If you want to move on though, the skillset you develop at AV will put you in a great position. Excellent place to start or continue your career.

Cons

AV&Co.'s value proposition to customers involves the deep TMT expertise of its staff. For new hires, it can take a bit of time to find your footing and ramp on cutting edge industries. Luckily the firm has a lot of training systems in place and a lot of mentorship across all levels of the organization, making this significantly easier than it first appears when you start.

Advice to Management

Continue to invest in the young employees as the firm keeps growing!

What is the company culture like at Altman Vilandrie & Company?

Pros

close-knit community, low travel, no weekend work, less political than most other consulting firms

Cons

The company is bleeding in talent as more and more find themselves suitable for jobs in the tech industry with better pay and much less headache. With a close-knit culture, departure of revered employees drags down the morale, and prompts more to leave. The firm's failure in trying to fill their spots with new hires becomes a serious burden for remaining employees to "hold their hands" through tough projects - it's a downward spiral from there

Advice to Management

Time to rethink who you're competing against in terms of talent acquisition. Banking and consulting used to be the two most popular entry industries among the top students, and it was a perfect balance with consulting being a bit less pay and a bit less intense. The time has changed now, as both have lost its attraction among the younger generation - with recruiters from tech industries relentlessly targeting your employees, how are you going to convince them to stay?
