    Pros

    Great talent, ruthlessy meritocratic culture

    Cons

    Groupthink on steroids, performance management of the executive team by the Board is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Reward business building outcomes, not behaviors.

  2. Reasonable friendly and low hours but not intellectually stimulating

    Pros

    The people are generally friendly and the work load is quite manageable. It was quite rare to work late. If you get lucky with the right team, you can do some pretty interesting things.

    Cons

    The work and people are not particularly intellectually or academically focused. The culture is more quasi-fraternity largely driven to the substantial size of the sales teams. The company also often feels as though it is trying to be a true management consulting firm but not quite there.
