    Pros

    There has been a lot of high level change over the past year. While it will take time for that change to grab hold on a large scale, you can already see the benefits. Certain members of the executive team are willing to listen more than in the past. There are growth opportunities in more departments and offices than in the past. Hours and work-life balance are becoming more flexible in many locations - and not only for those at the top.

    Cons

    Too many mergers. There's not enough time to settle in between, or attention paid to legacy employees who continue to put in long hours and lots of effort. There is an unspoken but very clear message that incoming mergers are better and more important than those who have given their career to the firm. There is also an unwillingness to help change the culture from many offices. It's the majority of the employees contributing to the culture problem - not the executive team.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. If you want your people to care and work hard for you, show them that you have their back. Invest time and resources into appreciating the legacy employees in addition to the incoming mergers. And stop avoiding the hard stuff.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at NELSON (Dallas, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Stage 1 : Phone interview with HR
    Stage 2 : Face to Face interview

    I was asked pretty questions regarding my current experience.
    Unlike other candidates on glassdoor, I did not had any group discussion.

    I was asked to give my feedback regarding the interview to the HR.
    I did not hear anything back after the interview so I think it went really bad.

    Interview Questions

    • Simple questions regarding experience.
      Nothing too technical.
