Pros

big, fortune 500 clients, big budget management experience, lots of support teams - almost over staffed sometimes. You will learn a lot and be asked to do a lot - learn from that.

Cons

muddled in the middle. hard to move up or down. Stay & learn while you can - you will work, no doubt - but promotions and salary increases are a myth. You need to move on to move up.

Advice to Management

get back to management reviews and some small salary increases to keep people motivated. Otherwise the turnover in the middle will continue.

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities, clients and people to workwith. They have a strong rep and long history. if you push, you'll. Find the job you're looking for.

    Cons

    There are so many employees that if you don't start with a core team on your side, a niche of your own, it's easy to get lost in the mix.

    Advice to Management

    There are lots of fish in this big pond. There's no beurocracy problem, just an opportunity to cultivate a lot more untapped talent already under your control.


  2. It is good, there is a lot of change going on and they are constantly trying new things

    Pros

    Scale of the business is amazing with access to great clients at a senior level. There is a ton of global opportunity and more chances for travel. The office is super well designed and people are nice. There is a bar and lots of events.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy to get things done is hard and there are too many people on every project. Best to stay under the radar somethings and just do stuff rather than talking about it.

    Advice to Management

    Try to figure out how we work and publish it to everyone so everyone knows and it doesn't keep changing.
