    Keep experimenting

    Pros

    Lovely colleagues and a team based, collaborative culture

    Cons

    A sausage machine focused only on volume but without the upside benefit of a commission structure.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the heart of professional services firms to become true trusted advisors to clients across a breadth of human capital offerings. Lead and stop following what you know. Innovate and grow through diversification and depth of client relationships.
