    I worked at The Columbia Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -great coworkers -good new office location

    Cons

    -Have senior managers in positions that they are not qualified for -Little success getting new business -Do not pay as well as other companies, this contributes to a high turnover rate -No career development, most employees stay a few years and then seek other opportunities -Fired president of the company and have had little success since he has left -Implemented a standardized career path program, but do not stick to this path. When an employee meets all the requirements for a promotion, they will often choose not to advance them -Little to no senior employees to mentor junior employees. This lack of senior leadership often contributes to a poor product for the customer -Work is incredibly sporadic, so there will be times that you will have no work to do -Work is often bid at extremely low hours required, to the point that you will not have enough time to complete the work in a timely fashion. This also contributes to a poor product being provided to the customer

    Advice to Management

    Work more on developing the talent you have, so that you do not have as much turnover. Need to hire more senior employees in order to mentor entry-level employees
