    I worked at MorganFranklin Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Standard benefits and good post college experience to ramp up. Careful can also be career killer for senior staff.

    Cons

    Too many to name but to start Leadership is terrible. Bonus structure and performance reviews are irrelevant on so many levels.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and get real leadership in there that are truly committed to developing, mentoring and retaining good talent!

    Great access to firm leadership. Capabilities across various areas of interest to CFOs, CIOs, and their departments. Business development bonuses and the ESOP! Flexibility to work from home when presence at a client site is not expected.

    Pros

    Great location in Tyson’s Corner Decent benefits for a smaller firm Growth in accounting and transaction services practice

    Cons

    Relentless focus on the market comes at the cost of developing and retaining talent. When I started with the firm, the senior consultant on my team had been working there for a year, with 0 experience in the subject matter related to projects he was working on and 0 coaching/training received. As a result, the quality of deliverables is sub-par. Definitely not the best place to start a career. Also, because of the focus...

    I have been working at MorganFranklin Consulting full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    After years of stagnation, the company appears to be scaling. The question remains, at what cost?

    Cons

    There are too many managing directors that appear to have inherent biases against employees or prospective employees who are not from the east coast. Newly hired employees are routinely assigned to projects, without any upper management support. Once an employee is hired they are on their own. It appears the company is more interested in making the next dollar than trying to secures a long-term quality client, and retain...

    Advice to Management

    You may want to consider re-purposing your managing directors. Possible question: Why does the company have so many managing directors and how are they contributing to the company's success.

    We hear you! We are currently implementing Skype systems in 6 new rooms to help meet the needs of our employees. And remember, every MD and Director office has a "clean desk" policy, which means employees are free to use them as phone rooms when vacant. Thanks for your feedback!

    I worked at MorganFranklin Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Smart and knowledgeable coworkers, really great support team (HR, Marketing and Recruitment) for a medium sized firm, modelled on big-4

    Cons

    Lack of investments in building IP beyond sales focused white papers - no established delivery framework or investments to build solution accelerators, projects are aggressively priced to sell but at standard consulting rates, so the burden is on the consultants more to put in more time and deliver. Resistant to hire specialist with deeper technical skills and more in favor of generalist.

    Advice to Management

    There are many good things at the firm, especially in the quality of talent available. My advise would be to invest more in building IP and solution accelerators - this will accelerate delivery and reduce burn out in consultants, explicitly budget non-billable hours for investment projects - understand your mid management is under pressure to sell at a high rate card but they need to be competitively priced in total cost...

In person interview: I interviewed for the Public Sector Consultant position. Interview was three different parts with 3 different people: behavioral, consulting & technical screen.
