Pros

great brand top name. The are the biggest firm in the world and have remained there for decades.

Cons

poor partnership environment. I was miserable. I was paid well but it cost me alot of money in the end working.

Advice to Management

I would not know where to begin the problems are too immense for me to fix. But hire people who believe and carry on I guess

    Pros

    Competitive pay; since marketing dept is small, there's opportunity to participate in several projects; hours weren't too demanding so work-life balance was attainable.

    Cons

    No clear structure in place for career advancement; "old boys club" mentality; stagnant corporate culture; not a very creative/innovative environment.

    Advice to Management

    When people first join the department, contracted or permanent, take the time to set up a measurable career-plan so that growth can be measured from both ends. And don't just stop there - the plan should be reviewed throughout the year to make sure that goals and responsibilities are being met and that the employee/managers are still on the same page regarding their career path with the firm -- and not another survey, but an open discussion. The more invested colleagues feel in their role within the firm/dept, the more likely they are to stay motivated and excited about the firm/department and its objectives.
