Pros – Awesome employees
Decent diversity of projects

A&M has emerged from its entrepreneurial phase that attracted many of the original leaders and cultural attractions
Advice to Senior Management – Greater focus on providing diversity of experience to younger employees will reduce burn-out. A&M attracts top notch talent, without question, but the growth in demand in the marketplace often left the firm strapped with few available resources and people often getting plugged into similar situations consistently.

Pros – There is no set vacation policy... it's take it when you need it so you can potentially take more time than would be standard at other companies.
Cons – No vacation policy can lead to not being able to take any vacation. Bosses can veto your ability to book a vacation out in advance leaving you limited time to plan an actual trip. You are encouraged to take vacation when you are not on a client, which is not something you can predict far enough ahead of time to plan a trip.
Leadership in some offices is weaker than others.
Advice to Senior Management – Invest more in your people

Pros – High level of responsibility and ability to take initiative with clients.
Cons – Lack of internal structure and great leadership.
Advice to Senior Management – Supporting organizational culture is even more important during an ecomonic downturn than when times are good. Don't lose sight of the firms reputation for the short term gain in marginal revenue.
