Freedom and flexibility, but poor compensation and management could be better

Pros

Generally, hierarchies aren't too strict and people are friendly. Work can at times be demanding but there's rarely an issue with work-life balance. Self-starters can get ahead in the company but must be demanding and manage themselves very well.

Cons

Cost containment and meager pay increases don't help employee morale. Too much is spent on recruiting agencies and consultants. Advancement and recognition of good work are hard to come by unless you are demanding. Communication from management is often lacking. Benefits are average but nothing special. Conservative culture means no jeans, and the office is generally very quiet.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Revenue generators (i.e., producers) are obviously very important, but work on communicating with back-office employees as well. They help run the machine. Invest more in them and you will see greater productivity, better morale, and long-term career development and loyalty. Allow the work environment to loosen up a bit.
