Growing Pains Abound
Senior Associate (Current Employee) –  Washington, DC20 March 2019
Thankfully management has stopped calling Guidehouse a startup - its split from PwC meant many wheels had to be recreated (IT, performance management, L&D, perks/benefits), but a startup it was not. The firm is still trying to find its footing and its identity, in the meantime prioritizing referrals over qualified candidates, taking on new projects without the right people in place, leaving a lot of ambiguity in the performance management system. The environment is go-go-go and I don't see a great deal of reflection: Do we know how to execute on this engagement plan? Should we take on this project? Do we have what and who we need? In addition, the resources and skills required may indeed be scattered across the firm, but poor knowledge management and limited human capital resources mean that people, tools, and know-how are difficult to find.

I know there are pockets of success at the firm. Small teams with experienced leadership that is equipped with the tools and people they need to manage and execute their project. One of my three teams has operated in this way. I don't care for those odds.
Pros
Downtown Office near a metro - fairly hands-off management
Cons
Very limited perks/benefits plan; New Performance Mgt is vague

Great culture, people and fun work. Much more diverse than competitors and they pride themselves on their people. Great managerial staff and visibility to the CEO

Great growing company
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Washington, DC24 November 2018
Job: If you are looking to make a difference and create impact than this is a great place for you, because management will support your ideas and help foster your career growth. They are all highly skilled professionals and understand the path to success.

Comp: Fair to what you put in. If you help bring in a lot of new opportunities, then you may get paid higher. If you are there to just work then you will probably be getting your base.

Advancement: Company has a lot of clients and a lot of different opprotunities and will require a lot of skill sets. As a highly motivated professional, I keep my certifications active and always seek to learn new technologies. People will be very open about introducing you to others people/management. So don't be shy!

Culture: Best company I've worked for so far. Great place to explore different industries. Once you established something wonderful, those coworkers will be people who support you and your career in the long run.

Communication: Wonderful communication from management and CEO. CEO sends out weekly/bi-weekly messages to everyone regarding current news, upcoming changes, and/or puts out fire. Overall, leadership really cares about the people and will share/be transparent as much as they are legally allowed. This isn't something to be taken advantage of, therefore you will always feel like you are part of the company.

Interesting place to work
Senior Associate (Contractor) (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GA20 November 2018
The culture of Guidehouse is okay. I worked as a contractor. There are some things that need to be worked on from an employee engagement perspective. Need to spend time actually developing people.
