    Pros

    Has a good reputation externally
    Excellent place for Swiss people
    Good for people that need micro managing, rigid structures and processes in place to perform well.
    Good for people that have a bland personality, do not believe in original thought and thus are happy to turn into robots and allow only super senior input to count.

    Cons

    New entrants are rarely pitched at the right level for their skills and experience.
    Many of the mid-level management lack the skills and experience to manage a diverse range of non-Swiss people.
    No work life balance for the new recruits, having a social life breeds resentment. There is a culture of how long one can sit at their desk as no one wants to be the first person to leave the office.
    There is a clear division between people that have been at the company for a long time and newer recruits, new recruits are not easily assimilated. The new recruits are seen as a threat and quickly sidelined especially if they join the company with more skills and experience which is very likely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company, quality growth is hindered as the mid management holds the company back. The company is extremely out of touch with the wider practices in other companies, and has no idea where they rank in terms professional conduct in the developed world.

    Pros

    - Generous benefits, vacation/sick days
    - Good salary, bonus, annual increases
    - Freedom to leave during working hours
    - Lunch provided
    - Great potential career growth within the team or to another team

    Cons

    - Superiors are located on another part of the world so recognizition is neglected.
    - Negatives seem to outweigh positives more often.
    - Some colleagues are highly demanding (most especially, a few partners).
    - Performance review are based from collecting review from random colleagues that may not be part of your team. Reports are crammed together creating confusing reviews of your performance as an employee.
    - Cultural differences within firm can sometimes cause conflicts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to have a local superior that can really have the full picture of the employee's performance. Performance reviews do not give full credit by simply gathering sentences from random employees, and then consolidating them into single paragraphs. It is very confusing to read.
