When I was in the industry we used them on a smaller engagement. Got handed significantly better resources than had previously received from larger firms for similar efforts.

They pride themselves on W/L Balance, and the few people I've met from there really like it. Small sample size but enough to leave a positive impression

Point B is awesome for culture and work life balance. Top people and quality without all of the BS of Big 4 consulting.

Their model for attracting employees is offering local market work with no travel required, but last I checked, you only get paid for the hours you bill. They guarantee you a salary for a while initially as you get started, but after that, beach time is not paid time. I think it is attractive for someone who wants to work part time, like 20-30 hours/week, but still wants the type of work they were doing at the road warrior consulting firms. For example, a new mother who wants to be home for her kids but still continue working at a reduced work schedule. Less opportunity for career advancement—very flat hierarchy but that also means it’s very hard to become a partner. I interviewed with them a long time ago as a way to get off the road, but it stalled when I realized I’d be taking a big pay cut *and* the risk of not being paid if I wasn’t fully utilized. Maybe things have evolved since then, but it wasn’t a fit for me at the time.

If anyone wants to join a boutique HR & Talent Advisory consulting firm, Kincentric is hiring for an Associate Partner role! Location doesn’t really matter, but preferably in IL, NY, or ATL.
