    Current Employee - Manager in Paris (France)

    Pros

    Income is good, career and performance management is key in the HR process, responsibilities are quickly given to employees all along their way, etc.

    Cons

    In the consulting workforce, the spirit is "up or out", which can be a problem after a while in the company. Even if you deliver good work, the company might tell you to leave in order to make room for younger...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should give even more responsibilities to "middle management", for example by increasing their client exposure...
