    Pros

    Overall strong pool of finance professionals and consulting line to work with. Solid processes and policies in place that give the finance function clear guidelines on most topics.

    Cons

    Pay doesn't seem to keep pace with the marketplace - heavy attrition is required for alterations to benefits/pay package and there is little differentiation in pay between top performers to the mean.

    Advice to Management

    Work to identify your top performers and stay ahead or at least current with the market for pay in real time. Yearly 'bring to minimum' adjustments have the same impact on re leveling all resources to the bottom of the range.

    Pros

    High-caliber people, good benefits, diverse and ample project experience.

    Cons

    People development seems to be falling by the way-side. Internal re-organization is frequent, but not always well executed. Tons of silos that are sometimes an impediment. Lots of turnover, especially lately.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to decrease turnover and retain talent. Increase compensation and reward longevity as well as performance.
