Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  San Francisco, CA
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

Pros

Work with some very bright people
Generally respect individuals
Opportunities to work globally
Chicago office has a great view

Cons

Ongoing cash problems
Grade school communication mentality -- gossip is rewarded, even if it's not true
Founders inner circle is always protected
Politics -- office, local, national, global. If you don't like politics you are in trouble.
Two-tiered organization -- billable or non. God help you if you're "overhead"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't forget the little people. Get rid of "golden boy" mentality for genius new hires. Communicate like adults -- forget the gossip train. Lose the inner circle.

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

    Even if you are not working on a social impact program, knowing that it is a priority with the company makes all the difference.

    5 days a week of traveling can mean that you only see your family for 36 hours a week for months on end.
