Pros

Great Company, Great place to collaborate and learn, Great people and friendly colleagues , ample opportunities to grow your career

Cons

Get involved in too many organizational activities and it becomes more important than actual work done at the client place

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company did exceptionally well even during the recession and profitability increased which shows that the leadership has done a great job in cutting cost and retaining business

    Large company, but individual practices and units are what you need to focus on.

    Pros

    Great knowledge sharing via internal tools and search engines.
    Staff like to share and help each other.
    Salary is competitive, but in the middle of the range.
    Relatively easy to move from one practice to another.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is more of a dream than a reality.
    Outward appearance of caring, but not all managers really care when there are revenue and profit impact s.
    Reward goes to those who are cooperative, not those who think outside the box, although they pretend that innovation is their goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with staff. Be honest with clients. Partners need to be more billable, like they are in other big companies.
