Pros – Very strong staff -- junior and senior levels
Tremendous learning opportunity
High stakes problems and highly positive feedback from clients regarding impact
Not as political or formal as other firms
Staff often develop strong friendships
Cons – Brand name is not as widely known
Selected project mix given small size
Different styles of senior management can be a positive and a negative at times
Location is attractive given all of the activities in the immediate area but would better if it was downtown
Advice to Senior Management – Keep looking for opportunities to invest in and grow business
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

“Everyone wants to get out...very low employee morale and no concern for employee motivation and productivity”
Pros – Good review and feedback process.
Cons – Very low employee satisfaction and morale -- leading to high annual turnover (50%+)
Poor communication of important decisions affecting employees
Poor allocation of resources (employees as well as costs)
Recruiting process is deceptive about work culture
Very variable in lifestyle, hours and management style depending on who's your manager
Staffing process is arbitrary and unfair, human resource policies are poor.
Advice to Senior Management – Try and learn about how to effectively manage your human resources. Realize the value of current employee knowledge, especially given the lack of training. Pay more attention to work life balance.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
