    Pros

    Good culture and growing company. Energetic and fun quarterly meetings!!

    Cons

    Several managers operate their department depending on their own personality traits. There is a known lack of professionalism on how they should motivate and train their employees. One manager consistently roams up and down the isles micro managing causing employee wagers on how often she will interrupt them daily. Another one would repeat confidential conversations with her subordinates for merely office gossip, causing tension within the workplace on how to respond/react. Drama galore!

    Advice to Management

    Create a consistency of management styles by requiring training classes on Personal Development/Communication, Coaching and Team Building, Business and Professional Skills among others. Review the turnovers in the last few years and understand something needs to be done for those who remain with the company.

    Pros

    - Work with really smart people who you can learn a lot from
    - Encounter challenging problems
    - Good stock variable compensation, if you are eligible

    Cons

    - Need more dedicated training time to learn the products instead of expecting consultants to do it in their free time. Also need better training material.
    - Sometimes work/life balance can be off - depends on the client and whether you are travelling
