How are senior leaders perceived at Proudfoot?

Pros

Last month I celebrated 2 key events, Proudfoot's 75th anniversary and my 39th year in the business. I could not be more proud of the legacy of this company from its beginnings as the pioneer of operational consulting to our current path of constantly creating new and innovative ways to serve our clients. Although this business is not for everyone, I have found it to be extremely rewarding from a professional development and financial perspective. I cannot imagine having taken a different path. I started in this business with meager means, but with the promise of an opportunity to be as successful as I wanted to be. Proudfoot not only gave me that opportunity but provided the encouragement and support to achieve it. Our founder was an incredible person striking out on his own to revolutionize the consulting world. He spent the latter part of his career teaching our younger people what he considered to be some of the most critical values and principles. He constantly reinforced "If you take care of the client, the client will take care of you." He was also fiercely loyal and had a famous quote "Whose bread I eat, his song I sing." He knew that sometimes it was fashionable to criticize one's company. He would always say, "no company is perfect, there will always be ups and downs." But he took care of his people, and we've seen that continue today with our current leadership and owners. As the world has experienced this terrible pandemic our CEO and Owners made the decision to put "people before profits" to ensure that Proudfoot's employees were taken care of. There is a reason why we have always referred to the company as the Proudfoot Family. People considering joining our company should know this. The future of the company is quite promising and this is due to the leadership and vision of our CEO. Given I've been in this business for 4 decades I have worked under 5 or 6 different leaders and could provide pros and cons for each one. Suffice it to say Pam is the right person, in the right job, at the right time to ensure the continued success of the company. I truly hope that I can be around (but retired of course) when we celebrate our 100 year anniversary. Finally, every company has its critics and people who may not have had a good experience. Whether it was someone who was only here a short period of time, or even those who had longer engagements with us and have left I can only offer you best wishes on your next adventure and truly hope that you find the reward and contentment you are looking for in your new assignment. But I will also offer you a piece of advice, something my parents drilled into me as a young lad and has served me well over the years, "if you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all."

Cons

It is a demanding career that can be extremely rewarding. People need to want to do this type of work.

Advice to Management

Thank you, stay the course.
