Great work life balance, culture lacking.

Pros

The work life balance is strong. Time off is rarely an issue.

Cons

The culture seems to have taken a turn in the wrong direction. Also, benefits, especially 401k matching falls short of comparable firms.

Advice to Management

Upper level management (MD's, AD's, D's) need to be more visible to lowest level employees through non-work related functions.

    Pros

    Good if you love travel, and lots of (non-monetary) praise for good work. Hired lots of trainees with no experience, so it would be a good entry-level job if necessary.

    Cons

    You are on the road 4 days a week ~45 weeks a year, usually in the middle of nowhere. Pay is crummy at entry level and you are expected to put in as much overtime and weekends as necessary. You get reimbursed for travel expenses a few weeks later. You don't really learn much; senior management has a "cookbook" and you just follow directions. Promotion to junior management is fast but based mainly on selling more work to your current client; promotion from junior management to middle manager is glacially slow. They had massive layoffs when the subprime crisis tanked their business.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing not too badly for the current economy, but look into diversifying into other lines of business, even if you don't yet have the cookbook for it written. Make targets less loftily unrealistic.
