    Pros

    My supervisors genuinely care about me and my career and want to see me being challenged and able to grow. They take time to get to know you and develop you as a person.

    Cons

    Structure is rigid, not a lot of opportunity to distinguish yourself early in your career. Lots of focus on keeping costs low. There is encouragement for work/life balance, but there is a lot of travel involved which limits that. Employees do not receive any type of health club benefits aside from a discount at the local Y. Low salary compared to other firms.

    Advice to Management

    Join the 21st century. Make sure people are enthused about their jobs. Consider the things that are important to them.

    Pros

    Strong culture oriented towards service and client satisfaction. Good flexibility and work-life balance compared to other firms.

    Cons

    Performance is mainly based upon hours rather than individual merit.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on implementing a system that rewards individual achievement and actual skill level.
