    I have been working at Proudfoot full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Terrific work delivered by terrific teams on client sites.

    Cons

    The only opinion in Proudfoot is the CEO's. The CEO claims to want robust debate but the reality is very different. Monologs, bullying and public shaming are the CEO's main management tools, remarkable given that Proudfoot specializes in transformation through employee engagement.

    Advice to Management

    If Proudfoot were a client project, someone would be confronting with the board the impact of poor behaviors on business performance. Practice what you preach, and deal with the CEO.

    I worked at Proudfoot full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Exposure to clients at early stage

    Cons

    Simple repetitive projects once you learn the Proudfoot way. Vast majority of engagements are a basic process improvement process. No long run development, mentorship, training opportunities.

    I worked at Proudfoot full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary, except don't count on your bonus or figuring out how it works... they purposely obfuscate the calculation method to siphon more up to the top

    Cons

    Horrible, horrible management. Horrible people in management positions. Argumentative, presumptuous, arrogant, loud, rude, selfish, unskilled, inept, boorish, ill-mannered buffoons across the globe. And for some reason you have to answer to them, even though they don't tell you what they want and change their little minds as soon as you've completed the deliverable. Little to no top-down communication that leaves... you guessing as to your actual (never defined) roles and responsibilities. Not that it matters as you have no room for upward mobility anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Value your staff and stop micromanaging. You hired them for a reason.

    I worked at Proudfoot full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with and if your looking to learn Consulting 101 then this is definately the place to be.

    Cons

    Lack of IT skills and resources. Most tools are built on excel platform whereas client may have advanced systems like SAP etc... Creates additional inefficiencies where client needs to fill in excel sheet which could be done automatically by their existing ERP system.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on IT skills.
