    Pros

    Great team and supportive enivornment, lower turnover in the consulting group, motivated Consultants and Sr. Consultants, exceptional younger managers and leaders.

    Cons

    Sr. Leadership is somewhat out of touch with the staff and the clients- the success is driven by the excellence of the middle leadership, the staff, and the partners.

    Director level is a position only within the consulting group which severly hampers growth, and is the largest turnover factor for experienced Sr. Consultants, Managers, and Sr. managers and many at the Director level provide very little leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Director level is a position which hampers growth and many at this level provide very little leadership; goals and success for Directors is very poorly defined (they can get credit for everything sold and executed beneath them)- so it is difficult to actually hold them responsible- therefore many directors do not contribute as much as most Sr. managers.
