Good Leadership but Bad Management

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Buffalo, NY

ProsGood Leadership
Use of latest technologies for internal communications, social enabled website,
Good Package for experienced employees

ConsBad Middle management
There is no structure for resource management. Leadership has good intentions and initiatives but people at middle management and coaches have no desire to improve employee's work atmosphere.
No respect for the employee's career path and objectives while assigning projects.
Some of the middle managers were recruited based on experience in non-US countries who have no knowledge about how resource management and time management cultures of US.
Confused hierarchy. Reporting Manager is different from the person who actually assigns and monitors the daily work load. On top of that, there is a Coach who has no direct understanding of the employees work or the client but plays a role in annual review.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide training to middle managers at the level of PC, Associate Partner and Partner level about good leadership. Current managers lack basic skills like, one-one meetings, feedback, coaching.
Please Please Please train the managers who come from India about American Work culture, time management, task prioritization. They are just bulldozing low-level employees with their unreasonable promises made to the client, with no prior knowledge about the business.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
