    * Pay tends to be on par with competitors.
    * Large company means opportunities to do work in different markets
    * Company wins large-scale projects


    * Stock price looms large
    * Company lays people off frequently, and no announcements are made. You never know when someone has been cut loose, or why.
    * Mid-level managers are expected to perform marketing duties "on their own time." Overhead hours for work pursuits are only approved for VERY large projects. Smaller projects ($50K, $100K) are expected to be won on your own time. When you're spending several hours per week on your own time preparing proposals to continue earning new work, the salary is no longer worth it, because your pay/hour is now considerably lower.
    * Remaining employed here means staying billable. If upper management is unable to win work, staff gets cut.
    * Company would rather hire someone new than promote from within.
    * Annual pay increases are very low, regardless of how you've performed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is unethical to expect people to win work on their own time. Part of being a project manager is marketing/networking. It is unreasonable to expect project managers to be 100% billable - they need at least a small percentage of overhead hours as well. As it stands, there is little incentive for junior staff to want to move into middle management positions, as it is clear that middle managers are being abused.
