    Great firm to work for with strong leadership; emerging into market power.

    Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsAwesome employees
    Experienced management
    Decent diversity of projects

    ConsPay across business units varies greatly and can be frustrating
    A&M has emerged from its entrepreneurial phase that attracted many of the original leaders and cultural attractions

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreater 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Disappointing

    Consultant (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsThere 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.

    ConsNo 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 ManagementInvest more in your people

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Job Review

    Consultant (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsHigh level of responsibility and ability to take initiative with clients.

    ConsLack of internal structure and great leadership.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSupporting 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.
