Pros

Smart people, great clients, great brand, interesting work, promotions at most levels are fair, good benefits, lots of responsibility regardless of level

Cons

Promotions at very senior levels can be slow, cash compensation may be lower than competitors and you need to consider the whole total rewards package, speed of innovation is slower than smaller firms

Advice to Management

Reward and recognize innovation by carving out time and roles instead of thinking it can be a hobby part-time while consultants are attempting to achieve high goal standards

    Good project opportunities but difficult to get if you are not personal friends with those involved in the projects

    Pros

    Great name recognition in the professional services consulting industry
    Competitive pay
    Potential to learn from many varied projects

    Cons

    Senior level employees have the attitute that mid-lower level employees are not entitiled to a work-life balance
    Personal friendship not experience or competency determines workload and growth in this business environment
    People manager system needs to be revamped to ensure that the manager understands all of the roles and responsibilities of those they manage since in many cases, people managers and those they manage are not in the same field
    HR is not very helpful when issues arise

    Advice to Management

    Leadership should remember that the assets of a professional services firm are the people and need to be nurtured
    The reasons for high turnover should be researched and fixed to prevent future occurences
