Pros

Gorgeous offices, great (if confusing) technology

Cons

No privacy, everyone sits at long tables. People are unfriendly to newcomers. Their technology systems are staggerly complex, and it often takes more than a week to get a phone set up, have a simple distribution list created and gain access to their travel and expense system. They also tend to hire contract employees, some of whom have been there for years.

Advice to Management

I would keep a close eye on your managers. The way people are treated is very unkind.

    Transparent and connected. Employee Friendly.

    Cons

    Have no good tools for reporting purposes. No ownership by seniors as they are busy saving their own jobs

    Pros

    Really smart people Client facing responsibility

    Cons

    Long hours Harder to get promoted now compared to a few years ago

    Advice to Management

    Reward the junior employees that have potential via either compensation or promotion. Lack of both is discouraging people to work hard.
