Looks good on the outside, overly political and lack of concern for the people

Lead Associate (Current Employee)

ProsGood benefits, access to smart people, very good learning and dev programs, opportunity for growth--to a point

ConsMost people will say that since going public, the culture has changed. Focus on staffing and bill ability has always been there though (at least in the last 5 years). Success requires being very politically astute, not questioning mgmt decisions, being billable and being available to work at all hours. Senior management is not really interested, and will not take action, on the feedback of its people. if you're not good at either schmoozing your way to the top, and/or working non-stop, don't plan to make a career with 'The Firm'. Known for lowballing salaries. Work-life balance is an issue at all levels.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to what employees are telling you and take action. Making everyone feel like a commodity to be bought, sold and disposed of is not a smart long term plan. There are incredibly smart people who are leaving in record numbers--pay attention.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
