Disorganized management

(Former Employee)

ProsGood clients, good staff. Nice office and good working enviornment. More casual atmosphere. Fair compensation. Happy hours. Good stepping stone within a career, but not a long term option for most.

ConsDisorganized management style, often causing fear/dissatisfaction with emploees. Lack of communication. Old boys club mentality and lack of promotions based on merit. Very little growth opportunity within the company. Good luck moving up if you weren't a Bush staffer. High turn over.

Advice to Senior ManagementReward good work, don't only promote/hire based on personality. Try to communicate with employees about things they care about more regularly, not just client work updates.
