Pros

- highly professional, helpful co-workers
- wonderful clients
- great working envirornment (when on site)

Cons

- incompetent, uncaring management
- lip service to improving employee satisfaction; little evidence of this being a priority

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ponder continued loss of consulting business to competitors; laying off senior people for those cheaper/less experienced NOT good long-term strategy.

    Pros

    -Close relationships with colleagues almost family like
    -Fosters Team atmosphere
    -Mature operations processes
    -Company works to preparing newcomers to the industry

    Cons

    There seems to be an inside group that gets special treatment and appears to be immune to the potential downside of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate the perceived 'in-crowd' so that all employees can feel that they have equal footing with all other employees. This will go a long way to fostering more loyalty and in the long term better employees.

    Pros

    Large well-established company with a good reputation, yet has a small-company feel since the company consists of a large number of small business units. Good work atmosphere, diverse workforce, many talented co-workers, interesting products and projects. Strong vision at the executive management level.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to gain visibility with management above your immediate supervisor since the organization tends to be very hierarchical. Not easy to learn about opportunities in other business units since each unit is self-contained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way of sharing information and job opportunities across business units; provide a way of rotating people into other assignments across business units to increase retention and cross-fertilization.
