    Pros

    Big firm so there in an inherent job security. This is a big firm, my feedback only applies to to the demand modeling group in Arlington, VA office. Bagels on every Friday. Yes that is the only undebateable pro I could think off.

    Cons

    Absolutely no growth, Management totally disconnected with the staff, low to no hikes.

    Advice to Management

    Try to recognize your employee skillset and learn to put them to good use. Learn how to motivate your group and make them feel as a part of your team.

    Pros

    good benefits; large, interesting projects; good clients

    Cons

    hemorrhaging technical staff and account managers; reluctance to re-hire staff which stretches existing teams too thin; inability to be flexible to client needs; loss of resources means no continuity with clients; short term focus rather than long term relationships; no investment in employees; serious disconnect between upper management and staff in the trenches

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees - yes, it's really that bad; management needs to be willing to make changes even if it costs money; no more talk without action; need to be willing to make serious investments and not just take advantage of low hanging fruit
