    Pros

    great work environment. competitive salary. great location. The benefits were stellar. I was treated very well as a new-comer.

    Cons

    more difficult to advance career. you feel a little dumber after working here. inexperienced lower- level management. have managers take a course on management. Simple things like taking notes at meetings and setting deadlines, with weekly reports, should seem obvious to managers, but are often overlooked.

    Advice to Management

    Try and create new markets, not just expand market share in already saturated markets. The plan of taking away from competitors will only go so far.

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. London location is in Canary Wharf in a very nice building. Great and genuine coworkers.

    Cons

    Company suffers from lack of direction. Introducing product strategy every few months without implementing previous one. Won't be able to compete in a long run without drastic leadership changes.

    Advice to Management

    Forgo functional organisation structure and move to product focus. Retain technical knowledge within the company and outsource all other capabilities (and not vice versa as it been happening lately e.g. outsourcing IT to Atos but trying to build out internal recruiting capabilities).

    Pros

    If you take your opportunities you can go a long way. This is an employer that wants to retain, develop and reward it's top talent. Sit back and don't be surprised if you're in the back seat. I've seen the best rise very quickly. The balance of power is shifting. Europe is rising.

    Cons

    Like many large corporations, still slow to respond to opportunities. Not enough market hires who have sat in our client's shoes. Current uncertainty is on its way to resuloution but we're losing ground.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees a voice. Don't let the consultants dictate everything; they have less vested interest in the long term success than your people. There are some excellent employees in your ranks who know the business better than external parties/hires; identify them and make sure you get their input. Keep decentralising from the U.S. but improve global collaboration, not just at an executive level. Make sure we make up ground before we lose what is left of our competitive advantage. And finally, if you want engaged employees, give them shares. It is that simple.
