Management stretched too thin


Comments

If candidates value work-life balance, a relaxed culture and living in the Washington DC area, but still like being challenged, this is the ideal consulting firm.

Uppers

The culture and the commitment to caring about individuals


Downers

The range of projects may be more limited than larger firms


Comments

If you are joining a consulting firm with an exit strategy already in mind, the Censeo is probably not the best fit for you. However, if you are looking to build meaningful relationship, improve yourself, and work on projects where you feel like you are positively impacting society, then I can't think of a better plan than Censeo.

The people


Downers

The stress


Comments

Censeo values its employees highly and expects its employees to value the firm and its commitments highly as well. You can gain valuable experience here, but it should not be viewed as a short-term stepping stone position (where you get in, advance and get out quick). Those are not the type of people the firm is looking for and hopes that the values and benefits it provides clearly show that.

Uppers

Flexibility, work-life balance, entrepreneurial spirit, merit-based promotion with no up or out policy, ability to be part of a growing and dynamic firm


Downers

Less formal training than larger firms


Comments

Censeo is dynamic and growing but still relatively small. This is a great place for people at all levels who really want to own and drive theri career to thrive. It is very colegial and very entrepreneurial. This is good for those looking for a lot of responsibility early in their career and an ability to shape bot htheir career and the firm. It is not a place where it is easy to work in the background and "lay low" - given our size an growth aspirations we expect a lot from each of our team members and in exchange they get maximum flexibility and responsibility to help grow the firm and themselves. I have found it a "liberating" place to work and always tell people I never knew what I was missing not working for a smaller firm uuntil I did.



I would also tell people that our strong public sector focus should not be seen as a negative, although it is seen as such by some when comparing firms. The Federal space in particular is made up of some of the most complex organizations in the world, with spending and operational/logistical challenges that rival any Fortune 500 company. The challenges we work on for our Federal clients are no less complex - in fact they are often even more challenging and complex - than the work I have done in the private sector. Censeo does not do "staff augmentation" where we park poeple on site in government offices for months or years like some government focused firms do. We are strategic and operational consultants focused on very senior level strategic issues and while we do have a strong focus on implementation and results, we do not embed our people into government operations. Rather we retain a strategic advisory role throughout the process, helping guide our clients to better results through focused execution. I note this key difference because some government focused firms have a reputation for staff augmentation work (e.g., Booz Allen, CACI, etc) and Censeo does not do that type of staff augmentation support - our focus is more strategic.

Censeo is a great place to work if you value a more balanced work/life mix but still a challenging and rewarding work life. Great people and interesting work.
