Pros

Good company for college hires. Good place to start your career and get the name on resume. Good benefits and perks. Good culture on paper.

Cons

No work life balance. Top performers are worked into the ground. You do have an opportunity to move up but will have to slog very hard. If you have social life outside of work it will suffer.

Advice to Management

Upper Management need to look out for their people. Tend to agree to take on work and deliver on time regardless of how long people have to work.

    Pros

    Great place to try a variety of roles across industries & companies and network with a lot of other talented people

    Average compensation despite above average expectations & travel


  2. Overall a good experience, new things to learn, some bad "drama" within the group.

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements, excellent benefits, good incentives for profit sharing/bonuses, fun environment.

    Cons

    Career advancement often based on popularity with management staff, base pay lacking compared to similar positions at other companies, promotion decisions based on need for more resources at different levels, rather than employees being ready to move to the next level.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation needs to be re-evaluated, as many employees are looking outside of the firm for better positions. Career progression needs to be based on ability, rather than popularity.
