    Company is in decline due to poor leadership and arrogant approach to the market.

    I worked at Toffler Associates

    Pros

    Very bright and diverse employees. Leading edge methods and services. Designed from the start as a virtual organization, complete with most of the technology and support necessary to work in virtual teams.

    Cons

    Operates as two separate cultures: the private club made up of the owners and select senior partners, and everybody else. Despite being a consultancy predicated on seeing future conditions, the owners missed market changes and opportunities for new business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak truthfully to client and employees. Listen to and leverage the immense talent in the workforce.

    Pros

    The plus is that you are able to work remotely and have a lot of autonomy. When I first started with TA were some very cool clients and the work was challenging.

    Cons

    Of late the work is your basic "get it done" and off your plate stuff. The majority of the superstars left the firm and those that remain are unhappy, overworked and the generally the mood is negative, especially with regards to the management. There continues to be turbulence with roles and knowing who is in charge. From what I know from previous employees the current managment isn't taking the business seriously and just wants to spin a quick profit so they can sell the business. People are treated disrespectfully and only "the favorite few" ever get ahead. There is a culture of unappreciation and ill treatment with overworked individuals trying their best and never receiving any encouragement. There is a complete lack of work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sadly there needs to be a new person in charge, fresh ideas and enthusism might save this once regal firm.
