Pros

Diverse, interesting projects, fun work environment, access to technology and resources, great peer group/team working relationships. Fair Salaries (if you negotiate), flexible hours, and travel opportunities. If you can find an advocate in the upper managment structure, you can do well.

Cons

Constant M&A integration and re-organization. No apparent long-term vision. Never ending cycle of middle management changes. Poor implementation of mentorship and staff development programs. Bitter employees of acquired firms that were not integrated into corporate could create a poisonous work environment.

Advice to Management

Provide better integration of professionals from acquired companies, you purchased them for a reason, integrate them or help them move on. Build bridges between entry level staff and technical and operations management, the generation gap is widening and will become a real problem in the next decade. Stop the management roller coaster, and keep employees informed, our generation is the driven by the 24 hour news cycle; if you don't provide information on the vision and direction of the company on a consistent basis or follow through on previous management plans you will not be able to maintain a connected, dedicated workforce.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The company has a lot of different offices and project sites you can be transferred to. Some highly knowledgeable professionals that can provide guidance.

    Cons

    In order to save face in front of the client, an employee can be fired and blamed for management mistakes. The company will not address severe human resource problems. On a project site, it is all dog-eat-dog.

    Advice to Management

    Think more extensively about how a project should be run. Make sure you have everything and everyone you need before launching into a contract. Please make a decision regarding poor management and/or poor practices.
