    Pros

    Great comitment to team work within teams. There is contribution from each employee.

    Cons

    Thrown into the fire with little training Management promotes their friends Because of the structure of promotions, resentment occurs, and production /professionalism suffers There is a lot of wasteful spending, which leafs to dismissal of crucial staff members

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the managing director in each department, and see where the real accountability for failure lies.

    Pros

    The small team environments means building great relationships and exposure to a number of mentors.

    Cons

    A lot of corporate bureaucracy means every project decision needs to go through several, often time too many stakeholders.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer role descriptions. Even with a career framework change that happened this year, it's still so unclear how senior leaders are involved with which aspects of the firm.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Good benefits. Good work culture. Managers are very good they are very cooperative. Good learning. Good bonus

    Cons

    Decent base pay compare to others. With IT work shifting to offshore bad politics has started. Technology not upto mark. Sr Managers will quiz timelines to get work done

    Advice to Management

    HI, Please keep an eye on bad politics, which will ruin company's strong base we laid since last couple of years. Now we are seeing lot of quality compromise has been done for quantity, 3 yrs back awesome place to work so please try to evaluate what went wrong. Very limited career options.

    Pros

    -Benefits are great - Managers that care about your development - Hard work is appreciated

    Cons

    - Unless you get a promotion, merit increases are minimal - I do not like the new open workspace concept.

    Advice to Management

    As a manager and someone who deals with confidential data I find it very hard to do my job from an open floor with little to no private space (but they are making money off the real estate so the higher ups couldn't care less)

    Pros

    Most of the people are very friendly.

    Cons

    If you are not an I/O you are not valued regardless of how much talent you have in your area of expertise. Pay is not very high, and merit increases are few and far between. The right hand never seems to know what the left hand is doing, then at the end of the year, the company is told they were not profitable....very inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you sell.

    Pros

    Some quality people work for CEB, the "PROs" end at personality and never meet the professional level when it comes to expertise unfortunately.

    Cons

    Doesn't respect the level of skill and talent is takes to become a Senior level Creative. Employee and empower those who lack in qualification for management.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable when they repeatably violate the Code of Conduct, stop empowering unqualified personnel.
