Pros

Name recognition. Upward opportunity if you stick around to become partner.

Cons

High time commitments. The work life balance is weighted very strongly toward work. However to be fair if you communicate personal needs managers will do their best to accommodate. The performance reviews are a forced curve so some great performers are reviewed as underperforming. Lack of transparency in the bonus system.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make bonus and review process more transparent. Make expectations clear and measure against those. Eliminate the "black box". Own up to the fact that it is ac challenging place to work. Constantly highlighting the rare measures being taken to assist certain individuals makes it seem like those opportunities are available to all employees, when in fact only 10% will be able to take advantage of them. And peers and managers will make you feel guilty for shifting work.

    Pros

    Care for employees. There is a true sense of care when you go through orientation. This can be both a place you can make a career with or as a great stepping stone into a job you may want. High turnover may mean faster promotion.

    Cons

    Maybe the lower starting salary and the hours you have to work during busy season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the good work with growth process but make sure the quality is consistent.

    Pros

    Great place to work with qualified motivated people and advance your career. Great advancement opportunities, competitive wages. You end up advancing quickly, and rarely doing the same thing more than twice - - which can be uneasy, but I think is good because you end up moving on to learn other things.

    Cons

    Transient population - so you're not sure you'll be working with the same people next year, which can be a good thing though, since it means that you aren't waiting for someone to be promoted for you to get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that the career planning is well set for the employees - - there can be a tendancy to manage 6-12 months out, only.
