    Pros

    Flexible teams, when you don't find the answer you are looking for, it is most likely not been asked or created. Subsequently, you have the opportunity to create core business processes for the firm.

    Cons

    You have the opportunity to create core business processes that should have been in place. There was a divided leadership structure during my time at the firm .. even though there were only about 120 persons on staff at the time, the dysfunction caused by a few senior managers made the firm seem like it was more than 5,000 persons and a matrix of many, many layers, when in actuality there were at best 3 layers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your consultants and include customer feedback in your management metrics.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work/Life balance can be achieved on most contracts

    Cons

    Inability of owner/CEO and senior management to build internal framework of company (HR, marketing, social media, communication networks, career paths, mentor programs) through rapid growth phases, which has lead to a high high turnover rate and general employee dissatisfaction within the company. Owner/CEO seems unwilling to spend money on aspects of the company that need to be built out due to rapid growth.

    Pros

    The fast growth means lots of new and different project opportunities that are often available to many of the employees. If an employee works hard and is successful, they are rewarded with their choice of new project opportunities. In general the project managers I've had contact with have great management and people skills and they establish a positive rapport with the team. The COO is a hardworking, very smart guy that appreciates good employees and recognizes motivated employees that produce good, quality results.

    Cons

    Communication can be very poor and decisions on anything can be very slow from senior management. The back office support (accounting, contracts, HR, etc.) seem disorganized, unfriendly and unresponsive (especially the VP of Finance) to requests from employees. The entire organization of the company is a little unclear as there are several individuals with a great deal of responsibility (including the COO), but little public recognition of the hard work. The CEO seems to have no apparent responsibilty for anything.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the employees more, become more approachable and improve communication in general. Make the senior management team accountable for their actions and don't reward poor performance just because you personally like someone.
