    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, including long vacations. Good opportunities to meet people in other places as well.

    Cons

    Boring job, boring people....no opportunities for advancement. People who have been there for 15 years do the same things you do as an intern.

    Advice to Management

    Add more variety to the work?

    Pros

    Exposure to highly accomplished executives and opportunity to work closely with dynamic, experienced Consultants and teams globally. Understanding of corporate structure and leadres.

    Cons

    Inadequate compensation, especially for Researchers; there is also a glass ceiling (again within Research) and the promotion process/career advancement could be greatly improved.

    Boring, lack of creativity, no free thinking (in fact it's suppressed); it's white collared sweat shop. Do yourself a fa

    Pros

    Salary on time and yearly bonus, weekends are honored (only in 1 team though)

    Cons

    There is absolutely no connect with the parent company; we are not a subsidiary, we are a service provider. Stagnant, you will learn everything in six months, after that it's downhill.

    Advice to Management

    Connect with your employees and stop living in a self-made clique / ivory tower.

    Pros

    Highly collaborative
    Interesting colleagues
    Flexible work environment
    International scope
    Private company
    Long-term mind-set
    Small company feel
    Encourages entrepreneurial mind-set
    Stable financially

    Cons

    Partners feel "entitled" and due to "lock-step compensation" often do not carry their weight and spend more time "looking good" than producing results.
    Unethical and dishonest leadership in the USA. Double standards on how Partners behave vs others in the organization.
    Selective enforcement depending on if you are a partner or not.
    Very weak HR policies, procedures and totally incompetent HR management.
    Clients would be shocked to know how the Firm was managed internally - full of hypocrites and unethical characters.
    Too much deadwood - the US side of the business is going nowhere.
    If you want to join, join outside the US.
