Pros

They take good care of their employees and seem to really want them to succeed. Generous with bonuses and very seldom have layoffs. They pay overtime to their executive assistants.

Cons

As with any consulting firm, the hours can be long and stress to meet client deadlines high. No sick time (comes from PTO allotment).

Advice to Management

Consider being more flexible with regard to letting executive assistants work flex-time and occasionally from home.

    Pros

    Very well defined teams and responsibilities. Very knowledgeable in certain markets. Very well known by clients and candidates.

    Cons

    Very little career growth. Training insufficient/ not practical. Same job, different day - very little differentiation in day to day work.

    Advice to Management

    More career opportunities, current management structure too flat. More mobility options in other countries.

    Pros

    FREE health/vision/dental insurance (and it's GOOD) - This alone keeps many people at this firm. Perks like free soda, office parties Flexible schedule for some departments Many holidays Investments in technology

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance Under market base salary. Supposedly benefits and bonus make up for this. Extremely political No career advancement. Most employees have been in the same job they held when they started at the firm (half of Corporate has 10+ years experience) Company executives have no desire for change Team work doesn't exist Information isn't shared or communicated

    Advice to Management

    Innovation should be embraced, not resented. With no accountability for managers, they are given power to do things that are detrimental to the company.
