    Pros

    professional atmosphere, people take their work seriously but generally get along with one another. Good work is recognized and politics not an issue at the junior level

    Cons

    Poor work life balance and difficult to advance higher as most hires are lateral from outside the firm. Training program is outsourced and generally not very good

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to empathize with staff more. Be more realistic concerning deliverables to avoid disappointment when unrealistic ones are not met.
