    Pros

    Scope and Freedom, good benefits, competitive salaries, leadership is present but not consistent across the organization, hence objectives are not always clearly articulated.

    Cons

    Company needs to invest in software tools to improve its position in the project controls marketplace, small client - embedded teams; not easy to relate to the wider organization

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that appraisals are fair and meaningful, encourage staff to grow professional knowledge and acumen, focus on training incentives and empowerment

    Pros

    The paid a reasonable salary for the work that was required.

    Cons

    They did not provide any hardware (computers, printers, paper, etc.) or any pricing resources (MS Means, MCA, NECA, material and equipment prices, etc.). They did not keep the employees up to date with the procedures and formats that the customers required.

    Advice to Management

    Be leery of what they say they can do without requiring you to provide all of the resources and hardware.

    Pros

    Flexibility Global Presence Client Base and geographical presence People Salaries are competative Medical good Vacation above average 401k below average

    Cons

    Smoke and Mirrors - no cascading information. Management does not listen to employees. Staff retention not a priority. All profits go to Partners, no sharing with Employees. Bonus what Bonus?

    Advice to Management

    Look internally and consider why you lose so many great people, the employees are your strength, don't blind yourselves with your own self importance.
