Pas assez concentré sur la conservation des meilleurs talents, la croissance sans un solide plan d'intégration a été coûteuse en ce qui concerne les talents.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Externaliser l'intégration et faire ça bien, c'est-à-dire améliorer la qualité et la fréquence des communications au sujet de l'intégration aux employés.

    Pros

    Positive, respectful work environment relatively free of micro-management. Flexible hours and work-from-home options, with generous vacation time. For executives and consultants, opportunities for personal career development, promotion, and world travel are significant. Project managers may have opportunities for world travel to facilitate project delivery to large global clients. Upper management are approachable and communicative.

    Cons

    Offices are over-crowded, with lower-ranking employees sharing offices or in cube farms. Pay raises are non-existent for lower-echelon employees. Intense focus on short-term financial goals means boom and bust cycles of hiring, lay-offs, and frantic periods where no consultant gets a lunch break for weeks. Benefits package is decent but some basics like gym membership discount on health insurance (at gyms that actually exist in the area) is lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the effects of continuous focus solely on monthly goals on the workload and morale of consultants and project workers, which in turn affects long-term productivity.
