    I have been working at Royall & Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's free Starbucks, and a select few low-level employees know how to do their jobs. That's about it.

    Cons

    Where, where, where to begin...

    Project timelines and scope
    Put simply, Royall has a sweatshop mentality. The workload is crushing and unrelenting, with new programs and clients being added at every turn. Recognition is completely absent. We have an “Operations Team” who is allegedly in charge of making sure that things run smoothly…but they haven’t done anything to manage workflow or to improve its processes. This puts the burden on the Project Managers, the vast majority of whom are overworked and under-trained.

    Middle/Senior management
    Communication is lacking among decision-makers at Royall. Senior management is greedy, uncaring, and completely disillusioned from all that employees do. They have no idea what goes into the development of projects, nor do they care to learn – they’re getting their fat paychecks, and that’s all that matters to them. This disparity in values leads to a ton of “rush projects” and reliance on middle managers who haven’t actually been trained to effectively lead their employees. Therefore, the overworked lower-level employees are left to find their own answers…but why would they? There’s no real reason to “excel” in your role, as the entire company is too log-jammed to recognize talent and ability.

    To summarize: Money-hungry, disconnected senior management barks orders to confused, ineffective middle management who present unrealistic demands to overworked, unhappy employees. Does that sound like a working model to you?

    Compensation and benefits
    Pay at Royall is appalling. Despite the monetary success of the company, significant raises are only given to higher management. Low-level employees get the equivalent of cost-of-living increases and are reprimanded when they question it. Plus, you can't grow your salary through promotions, since those are few and far between. Office politics play a much bigger role in promotions than actual ability.

    As for benefits, there aren’t many. The biggest perk is watching Upper Management unhappily hand out apples during a few mandatory "snack times" while flashing fake smiles…but this only happens a few times a year. Otherwise, we have a weekly shoe shine so old men of the company can make sure their loafers are polished. That’s about it.

    Overall
    I could go on: There’s no real training. Overtime is expected, but no additional compensation is given. The company culture is strictly negative and still declining. On and on and on…

    But I think everything I’ve said has made my point clear: Royall does not and will not care about you or your professional growth. You will not enjoy it, and you will not be valued. You only serve to make the rich richer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the office culture and general thoughts of your employees: NOBODY. IS. HAPPY. And if you care to fix it and see your employees actually enjoy their jobs, you'll pay attention much sooner rather than later.
