    Pros

    Great environment for a long-term, steady career with good benefits and also a healthy work/life balance.

    Cons

    Not necessarily the best place for young, ambitious professionals. No sense of growth opportunity. Compensation could also be better for the lower ranks (analysts and middle-management). Bonuses at the director level and above are much better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create actual career paths for employees, encourage growth and development. Look at the significant gap between directors total compensation versus that of middle-management.

    Company has great benefits , good pay and a good bonus structure. Very employee focused company with an eye on increasing talent management.

    Can be difficult to move up unless you are identified as someone to watch. Line staff does not have a chance to voice their issues with out concern for career progression in some areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the silos created by your management staff in certain areas.

    Pros

    An easily understood corporate culture.

    Cons

    Impossible to work there and try to effect meaningful change without the support from top leaders. Even projects which have been well underway and funded to the tune of millions dollars have been killed (and leader laid off) because someone powerful has decided that the there's a new shiny object.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing games with people...give honesty a chance.
