Not living up to core values, but it's a job so that makes it okay.

Pros

The people in general are great. If you work hard you can climb the corporate ladder but that really depends on what area you work in. Unfortunately it doesn't apply to every area within the company. You can work remotely and travel. The corporate card is a nice bonus too. You can work anywhere in the country depending on what you do and it's a nice alternative.

Cons

There are many, but then again every company has something that's not what you would want and no company is perfect. The cons are there really isn't a work life balance as in the core values. That balance is contingent on what upper management feel is relevant. There isn't a lot of 'respect' for the individual. We are encouraged to report unethical practices but when it occurs we are advised that it doesn't immediately relate to us so we should leave it alone. It's just a lot of contradiction. I guess it wouldn't be a bad thing if we weren't drilled in to live and breathe these values when we don't really follow them. If you can get over that it's just like any other company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would but what's the point. If upper management doesn't feel that corporate values are worthy to be followed, why would they take any advice I have to offer?

    Pros

    Decent pay for entry level
    Decent benefits for entry level
    Decent bonus stucture
    Excellent learning potential

    Cons

    Compromised Work/Life balance
    High stress project timelines
    High employee turnover
    Lack of motivated and qualified talent
    Slow promotion ladder (unless you work a ton and kiss ass)
    Weak salary increases year over year and inline with promotions
    Poor career guidance
    Dog eat dog atmosphere between on project resources

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of hiring to hit a certain number of resources, try hiring competent and talented resources. Level out the compensation scale across the United States (a first year analyst in Ohio makes about 35-40% less than an analyst in New York). Understand that the kiss ass mentality to get promoted and raises to be part of the "Good ole boy" network is sabotaging your firm.
