I worked at Cotton & Co.

Pros

The partners and senior managers are incredibly knowledgable in the Federal Government Sector. There is an open door policy that I appreciated and valued. There is a heavy emphasis for certification which is rewarded with bonuses.

Cons

Compensation is below average, opportunity for advancement is difficult and recognition (verbal or monetary) is not provided beyond year end performance reviews.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If Cotton wants to increase retention at all levels then senior management should listen to their employees, recognize people who are working above and beyond as compared to their peers and provide more verbal feedback and on-spot bonuses.

    I worked at Cotton & Co.

    Pros

    Decent work life balance, Adequate opportunities for professional development courses, Most client sites are close to public transportation; Decent employee benefits package.

    Cons

    No 360 reviews; Lower level staff is penalized if they expose weaknesses of incompetent / unprofessional managers; Lack of communication throughout all levels of management; Lackluster salaries, bonuses, and pay raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your lower level staff members, and not take them for granted. Just because someone does not have CPA does not mean they are not competent or subject matter experts, especially if they have been in the workforce (industry) for several years. Also, stop being so cheap when it comes to employee compensation.
