    Pros

    My Peers were really among the "best and the brightest." They have an amazing training system and a learning system which will alow you to take any course in their intranet you choose. They have anything and everything you might want to learn. They also have a great referral program which will earn you cash. They offer great benefits, unlimited sick leave, recognition for reaching goals and many opportunities if you would like to get involved in commmunity service.

    Cons

    There are many older people which refuse to get with the new generation and prefer to do things old school, which hinders getting the job done quickly (which is what you are always expected to do, everything is a fire-drill). They claim that they promote from within and fill most of their positions with people from within, but if you are more qualified than someone which has tenure for a position, dont even try to get it because they wont even consider you, until you have atleast a couple of years proving how good you are. Of course the 360 degree feedback they use virtually makes it impossible because regardless of how good you are there will always be 1 person that does not like you for whatever reason. And that when put up against brown-nosers will cause you to lose every time! Fake people thrive here. There are so many onder cover racist people. We had to pay 80.00/ month for garage parking. Many people were given the opportinity to become Senior Associates or Managers if they passed an exam that they were not given any time to study for. Also turn over is high among Associate, Senior Associates,a nd even Managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so uptight, snobby and actually listen to what people are really saying. Stop working to push people so hard to the point where they crack (beg for another role) or leave. Work with people and HELP them reach their goals. And when you as management make a mistake OWN up to it and dont throw your support crew under the bus! Get rid of old school Managers/Senior Managers/Directors that do not belong there. Oh and stop hiring idiots for roles that dont suit them. :)
