    Pros

    Smart People, some bleeding edge projects, beautiful offices, free coffee, pop, juice, bagel fridays, once a month chair massage.

    Cons

    most managers do not know how to manage, favorites get best project work, managers and above talk the talk but don't really follow through on helping grow a persons career, people on the bench who have skills that can be used elsewhere but nobody takes the time to find out their skillset, people are ridiculed, have bad nicknames for staff members, a lot of gossip surprising since there are so many men in leadership roles, no real respect for family leave time, 9+ hour days as billable people MUST bill a minimum of 9 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    take time to learn about your employees, don't put people in management roles because you like them but because they earn it and know about their discipline and practice area.

    Gorgeous offices, awkward staffing, and a lot of legacy deadwood

    Pros

    Pretty cool work space, profile projects (if you are luck enough to get staffed to them) and for most part everything is cool in terms of work life balance, training, etc.

    Cons

    They don't really have the processes in place to recognize and promote new talent. It can become a real problem when a new hire sits on the bench for two months before being staffed. I've seen this many times. It is awkward to experience.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know the skills of your new hires better. Develop a process that allows staffing to actually know what they have.
