Pros

Overwhelmingly smart, results oriented, hard working people. There are great benefits including real flexibility/mobile work. Anyone can work anywhere for the most part, depending upon their project, and the technology is in place to support it. Also a lot of options to move roles within the firm, with the opportunity to try to do things that you haven't done before, out of your area. Compensation is carefully measured against the market and maintained. Excellent services to support employees.

Cons

The performance management system is subjective, antiquated and ineffective. Career growth depends upon finding an advocate in a senior position to help move people along. Consistent high performance (and high ratings) and achieving results do not assure progress. Lower performers that have achieved less impressive results can advance more quickly than high performers, and often do. There has been a practice of changing the requirements for promotion as well, so that you might work for 2-3 years to meet requirements that are then made invalid - and you have to start over.

Advice to Management

Throw out the performance management in place and start over. Set objective criteria for promotion and stick to it.
