Pros

Great place to cut your teeth and learn to work hard. At the true workforce ranks of Consultant to Lead Associate, you can have a lot of opportunity as a self starter to tackle challenging client problems. There are many people that will challenge you and make you a more dynamic problem solver.

Cons

The business is shifting and upward mobility is difficult after Lead Associate. With downward pressure on rates and how the company is set up, they need to reduce overhead. There is less and less reinvestment back into the employee base. You now have to make up all of your training time by working an overage of billable hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Buy the firm back and provide yourselves the ability to reinvest and have flexibility with the business. This business can not operate from quarter to quarter results. Intellectual capital is the silent loss.

    Pros

    Even with all the changes in the culture, it is still a very good place to work. I like the emphasis on ethics and innovation and creativity. There is strong support for developing your skills and abilities. Volunteerism is widely promoted.

    Cons

    The flow of information has changed from being pushed down the chain of command to the team members to a flood of information broadcast in such a high amount that finding valuable information about what is going on is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
    Very talented people are having a hard time finding positions before being let go because of the crappy person-to-position matching process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Undercover Boss (include HR and RM)
