    I have been working at CrossCountry Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Great company culture and a strong leadership team (the people here genuinely care about and support each other!) -Emphasis on work-life balance and flexibility -Robust performance management program that supports individual professional development and growth

    Cons

    Working for a rapidly growing company can, by nature, lead to minor "growing pains" (constantly evolving roles, changing priorities, etc). In my experience, these "growing pains" can lead to additional opportunities for professional growth if you remain open-minded, positive, and flexible!

    Pros

    *Leadership truly cares about your professional development and ensures that you are working on projects which excite you and help you grow professionally * EVERYONE I have worked with is kind and supportive which makes coming to work enjoyable *Incredible focus on work-life balance - the company genuinely wants to make sure that you aren't working around the clock and don't have to sacrifice what's important to you

    Cons

    *As with any small company experiencing rapid growth, there are some minor growing pains. That said, leadership is always transparent with employees and works to address these as they arise.

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

    Pros

    - Incredible support from leadership and colleagues. From the executive leadership team, to my direct managers, to employees across the country who I have yet to meet in person--every CrossCountry employee truly embodies the company's commitment to culture. - Opportunities for growth. After only a couple months, I have already been offered countless opportunities to shape my role. Employees are encouraged to engage in work that interests them and requirements for advancement are clearly outlined. - Unmatched work/life balance. CrossCountry recognizes each employee as an individual and offers ample flexibility in day to day scheduling.

    Cons

    Occasional growing pains. But these have allowed me to take on responsibilities in exciting new areas.

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

    Pros

    - Great working culture - Friendly co-workers - Growing fast - Senior management very amenable to feedback - Work/life balance generally better than at other consulting firms

    Cons

    - As with any fledgling company, there are some growing pains associated, largely, with administrative issues, but nothing overly concerning

    I have been working at CrossCountry Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    CrossCountry does a great job at hiring great people and retaining them. Their support and encouragement are never ending, and they have a performance management system geared at frequent feedback. I cannot stress enough how important it is to love what you do and to enjoy the people you work with, and I'm happy to say that I have both working for this firm.

    Cons

    Growth always comes with some growing pains. I think it's inevitable that the firm has learned some lessons as we grow, rather than beforehand. This is expected when you join a firm that is only 7 years old.

    I have been working at CrossCountry Consulting

    Pros

    I love working at CrossCountry Consulting! Over my time at CCC I have worked with some of the best people in my career and across some extremely interesting projects. Lots of companies claim to have a people-first culture and don't deliver, but at CCC people first is truly a reality. Other pros include: - Talented co-workers - Supportive Management - Diverse experiences

    Cons

    As with any growing company there can be growing pains - and there have been some with regard to internal systems and some benefits. However, management is continually investing in the firm and soliciting advice, so I can honestly say that any issues I have had were considered and attempted to be resolved as soon as possible.
