    Cons

    - Anuual re-orgs are the norm
    - GPS is being forced to integrate more with the accounting side of the firm, including financially
    - Annual performance review process is too cumbersome for everyone involved

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Scrap the "coach" role because although it is nice in theory, it is minimal value-added.
    - What the heck is GPS 2.0? Better change management, please.

    Pros

    Due to the small size of the firm, staff have opportunities to work on a great variety of projects.

    Cons

    The work environment can be concluded with two words -- "drama factory".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Office politics is unfortunately important, but it shouldn't be all there is. If someone who is smart and has good skills, learn from them, don't just try to get rid of them in order to secure your own position.
