Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

Pros

All the benefits of a large, global firm: many offices, many resources, lots of different kinds of work being done (most of it excellent)

Cons

All the negatives of a large, global firm: systems are too inflexible, review process (particularly upward review process) is seriously flawed, difficult to get exceptions made for you (especially as concerns compensation)

Advice to Management

Internal review process is seriously flawed; retention is an issue; attempts to create uniform systems across radically different lines of business are unlikely to be successful
