    Pros

    People are great and mgmt always keeps us posted on latest changes from the top...even though the change seldom trickles down. Lots of new acquisitions make learning about new services fun. Great brand name and place to be an executive though.

    Cons

    No incentive system to be mottivated to do more or work long hours. Dont expect to move anywhere in the company as strategy is acquisition vs development of human capital. Very political environment now dictated by the street. Stronghold on content which still plagued by technology issues, but less focus on analytical insights. More reporting oriented than solutions focused. Can bank in college students joining but who leave after learning hard work and intellect take you nowhere. Counterparts at the big 4 are more driven with better reward system. You can sell in, score perfect reviews, step up when needed....but dont expect anything back. And it all falls on the client when employees become complacent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    review HR structure. If you can learn one more thing from GE mgmt it would be around this, bc you do m&a's well enough already.

    Pros

    Great people, flexible hours, interesting work, the Cincinnati office has lots of fun activities, good mentoring by senior leadership, successful company growing

    Cons

    It feels like the little workers are getting squeezed so that senior leaders--and especially--the venture capitalists groups can pay themselves fat fees and try to justify the high price they bought the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a consulting company, our product is our people. Make them feel special and they'll stay.
