Pros

Good compensation, great work/life balance, interesting projects

Cons

A large portion of the organization does not appear to learn from their mistakes. This seems to be par for the course in professional services organizations; however, if the data and resource talent is there, the situation should not happen a second or third time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spent time improving your department. Just because it has worked in the past does not mean it could not be improved for the future.

    Middle management is selected based on time at company, not who is best qualified

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees (and sometimes allow them to work from home).
    Provide a method to review your direct manager or direct management chain.
    Maybe have an anonymous comment box.
    Continue to be agile and reactive to the marketplace
    The company has hired some VERY bright people, ask their opinion about the companies position in the industry.
