Pros

Good benefits. Nice coworkers. Great place to list on your resume.

Cons

It only takes one bad leader to destroy a group. People sit around and are afraid to leave at night because the group leader is a workaholic. No respect for work life balance. People are rewarded only for long hours and not for results. Those that don't adopt this way of working are labled poor performers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Relax and quit working people to death. People do have lives outside of work. Reward efficiency by letting people leave when their work is done. Lead by example.

    Pros

    I think this company truly values its employees and does a great job in giving challenging and rewarding opportunities to advance one's career. It is very easy to get exposure to executives within the organization on a daily basis. The professional development program is superb, and the company has invested a lot of time and energy into developing training programs, especially over the last year or two.

    Cons

    Within advisory, it can be difficult to strike a good work life balance. The higher your level within the organization, the more responsibility one has for sales, which can be a challenge for those who do not like sales. Also, working in a partnership essentially means that one can have many different "bosses," which can challenge the work-life balance even more because you must please them all in order to have them help sponsor you for partner eventually. It's a tough life, but can be lucrative for those who want to put in the hours to achieve it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I recommend that management closely look at how many projects their best people take on, and find ways of evening out the workload. The best people get to be the best by accepting a wide variety of projects and "partner pleasing" activities, but in the end may also be burning themselves out very quickly.
