    Pros

    The people at CrossCountry are really nice and their is a great welcoming culture. Senior leadership are very impressive- That's it.

    Cons

    This IS NOT a consulting firm. It is a back office staffing organization that has terrible opportunities for its people. The only people they employ are those that couldn't make it at big 4 or other firms.

  10. "Consistent"

    Positive Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at CrossCountry Consulting

    Pros

    -Work/Life Balance is important to the company. While there are busy times you generally aren’t working crazy hours and get some flexibility with remote work on some clients. - The People - everyone you work with is qualified, friendly and a pleasure to work with. They work hard to preserve the culture through the recruiting process. - The work is consistent, sometimes not that challenging, but consistent. You generally don’t have to worry about utilization because a lot of the clients have long term engagements and they are growing fast so they have more opportunities than people to fill them right now.

    Cons

    -The pay and annual pay increases are generally below market. They try to compensate for this with other bonus opportunities, but I personally would rather have it in my base pay. -This is a con for most consulting firms but recognition and promotions can be political in terms of who you know in leadership that has your back and has seen your work ethic first hand. Not all clients require senior management oversight so your contributions can go unnoticed.
