Unclear promotional structure

Consultant (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsGreat benefits, young work environment, good life/work ratio.

ConsThe corporate structure needs to be overhauled to provide more opportunities for consultants to progress within the company. As it stands now, consultants are pigeon holed with current accounts and receive promotions by being in the right place at the right time. There is very little communication from management about future opportunities or professional coaching to retain top performing employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease communication about management changes and potential career paths.
