    Pros

    It is nice to work for a company with a great reputation. It can make obtaining new business easier. Most people don't work more than 45 hours per week, so there is work-life balance.

    Cons

    Raises for the common folk are small. The executives get nice raises. Limited career mobility. Lots of projects to handle while managing your clients. Middle management keeps expanding.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people well in a record breaking year, don't blame the interest rate enviornment for low raises. SVPs and above should be more accountable for new business - they should be rainmakers.

    Pros

    Since it's a big company there are lots of internal opportunities. Networking is great and encouraged; most people in higher positions are willing to speak with you. Great benefits and they treat employees very well.

    Cons

    Super conservative, all respects (thinking, investing and salaries). They rarely fire anyone, people stay in the same position for 20 years. Very low employee motivation. Raises and promotions can be very political.

    Advice to Management

    Make the better decisions quicker
