    Pros

    Friendly environment culture at least on the surface.

    Cons

    The management didn't really care about finance team and administration team. To the point that the sales and operation teams create problems, finance bears the consequences!

    Advice to Management

    Finance and support teams are as important as sales, without us, what's the point of making sales?

    Pros

    Autonomous role Worked on some interesting and large scale projects Had some great talent in team (although most ended up leaving) Good variety (initially at least) Met some great people, and made some friends

    Cons

    Very reactive leadership style Many changes in leadership Too much change without clear strategy/vision Lack of investment in talent Highly political culture Some staff members treated very badly High staff turnover Poor collaboration and integration between business areas Poor systems and processes Content and knowledge form previous acquisitions poorly retained Consistently prioritized profit over good quality work Increasingly poor market reputation Consultancy group not valued

    Advice to Management

    The business needs to understand the consultancy offering, and value the consultants who deliver it if they want to attract and retain high performing consultants, and ultimately survive.

    Pros

    - Great internal training - Good team mates - Some career progression - Nice accounts

    Cons

    - CM can not maintain its staff due to poor salaries, unclear career progression and unfair bonus structure - Senior Management are questionable - CM is known for creating great Recruiters but they are often poached from competitors who are paying more

    Advice to Management

    Get connected with your staff and listen to them. Reshape the bonus structure to get in line with your competitors otherwise you'll continue to have a high staff turnover.

    Pros

    The team I worked within were drive, switched on individuals who worked hard for client growth. The team improved significantly in the time I was with Chandler Macleod, whereby new management provided greater direction to the consulting team.

    Cons

    The compensation is almost embarrassing. The opportunities to be involved in diverse projects was difficult initially, however this changed with new management.


  11. Too many challenges to working collaboratively
