    Pros

    Working in a complex environment allowed a bit more freedom to make decisions without having to go through the home office

    Cons

    There was trickle down effect through layers of middle management with everyone wanting to "cover" themselves and shift the blame/responsibility down to the next level. Very poor process for annual evaluations with certain percentages of people being forced to be slotted into certain review levels.

    Advice to Management

    While accountability is a good thing, be aware that many in middle management are only protecting themselves and not helping develop talent or do what is in the best interest of the client or firm.
