Pros

Extremely intelligent co-workers make it a real delight to come to work each day. Topics that the company studies are also very interesting.

Cons

Workload can be very seasonal and often unpredictable. Information technology tools are out of date. Merits for promotion are not adequately defined.

Advice to Management

Consider offering higher pay to employees to attract talent away from better paying competition. Invest in better internal software and IT tools.

    Pros

    The career development stages are clearly outlined, so that promotion expectations are managed appropriately. There is a lot of flexibility in the way you work and what skills you want to acquire whether it is by taking a class or attending a conference.

    Cons

    Recent growth in business has meant an increase in hiring; however, this has been coupled with a lack of attention on making good systems that make working processes sustainable for the long-run.

    Advice to Management

    Management could ask more junior/mid-level staff to take more ownership of how they want to see work processes, since they are the ones most in the weeds; instead of having management listening to staff and then making executive decisions that may not always appear to consider the input they collected.

    Pros

    High-profile management, opportunities for advancement (if you're patient), connection to one of the most prominent schools in the country

    Cons

    Low pay, hours may be sporadic (esp. for new hires), advancement may require showing management that you are interested, not just speaking up

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff with kid gloves and they will do the same.
