Company that tries to be responsible, socially aware, employee focused....not that way at all

Pros

Some interesting work, benefits are good.

Cons

Company doesn't practice what they preach. Despite their stated "organic growth" the company grows through acquisition which doesn't go so well. Regional leaders and office managers have no clue about their own employees and spend most of their time working on org charts to justify their existence. The corporate management seems to be on a different planet and don't communicate anything to the staff. This company is struggling to identify itself amongst many other companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a closer look at regional and office managers and make sure that you ask them why they are constantly shuffling the deck and making arbitrary decisions about staffing.

    A siloed company where everyone seems to be "out for him/herself" and no one wants to rock the boat

    Pros

    good reputation, good work schedule

    Cons

    No help in career path/growth, it is all about the charge rate. Management seems to care just about sales performance which drives their bonuses. No interest in individuals or what they are doing and only seem to want to get involved when there are problems to "beat" people down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no cohesive culture nor a interest or willingness to work together across LOBs. Need to lead employees and care for their growth. When work dries out in a group, managers should be working hard to get employees involved in other groups so that there is not constant threat of being unbillable and being laid off. Recent collegue/MS/PhD hires seem lost as management is not involved in keeping them busy, helping them see their career, etc. It is too much about the individual person.
