    Pros

    you learn a lot. people are very nice. work with strategic people and big time clients. They are making changes and trying to make things better in regards to moving up

    Cons

    Not great team work. you get to work with really experienced people but also you are so far away from their experience that you end up not getting a lot of training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Play to analyst strengths.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the management should try to understand the morale of employess and tries to reduce staff turnover. Good companies always tries to retain their employees and both employer and employee will benefit out of that

    Pros

    some excellent sr. consultants who provide guidance and insight
    access to a lot of research tools - great base for knowledge growth

    Cons

    especially in research promotions are pseudo-nepotistic
    no growth beyond role
    "you get used and move on"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    put some structure into your research - one person's opionion should not taken as dogma, especially when one examines track record of those that produce policies / practices / procedures.
