    Pros

    Client facing is probably more appreciated and better compensated during annual assessment. Non-client facing employees can usually work from home or remotely elsewhere. My individual Sr Associate Career Manager give great support helping me to aclimate and do a great job (they aren't all "great"). WIll reimburse for education.

    Cons

    Non-client facing employees: Over worked/understaffed. Annual assessment "Exceeds" get 2%. Current disparity between salary and market salary 20%-30% with 20+ yrs experience. Declining benifits. Laptop sign-on takes 15 minutes for boot-up and network connectivity issues constantly. Some Sr Associates like to fluff-up for self importance and to impress other Sr Associates and Principles/Partners at the cost of allowing flexible use of and leveraging other's expertise and knowledge. No budget for external training and no internal training for specific job skill enhancement. External client complains that BAH likes to bring more resources to meetings than is necessary and then charge the client...thus inflating billables. Sorry but they're reaching out with a hook from behind the curtain...gotta go.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate those that do the work. Fairly reward employees at least allowing for inflation. Promote & pay for skills/knowledge improvement only possible from external seminars/conference/training. Make network connectivity bulletproof 24/7. There is no reason for senior mgt to badger competent associates...practice what you preach and promote adaptive flexibility leveraging others expertise.
