Pros

A very smart employee base. Fun culture. Challenging mix of client projects and research projects. Well-respected brand. Work/life balance. A company that genuinely cares about its employees on a personal level.

Cons

Org and management changes every 6-9 months is exhausting and counter-productive. Minimal career development for analysts and promotions take a very long time (3-4 years). Poor middle management. Primadonna analysts tend to get more internal support than other analysts. Research directors who are terrible people managers.

Advice to Management

Slow down the change so folks can get some momentum in their jobs. Launch a formal career development program for employees. Hire better middle managers that can motivate and inspire employees.
