Great work/life balance but difficult to progress in your career

Senior Associate (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

ProsGood work life balance and flexibility. There are a lot of nice, hard working people working as associates, some weaknesses in middle management, and some intelligent hard working people in the more senior roles.

ConsSalaries are not as competitive as other companies. Hard to move up - tend to get stuck in a position and management doesn't seem to set career goals.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is better to have less smart people and pay them more than to just keep hiring mediocre people at mediocre salaries.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
