    Pros

    project experience and some travel if you are lucky

    Cons

    - very disorganized - low pay - management doesn't care about employees - long working hours and no recognition for good work - management doesn't really care about quality control of work, they only care about profit - you only advance in your career if you are "someone's friend"

    Amazing project opportunities Very bright colleagues Superb knowledge base and resources and systems Global links

    Political connections mean more than performance Myopic focus rewarded more than collaboration

    Advice to Management

    The business has to bigger than the personalities - stop pandering to friends and those that make the loudest noise and reward the people who deliver the goods

    Pros

    The best technical consultants are here. The work environment is very good. You'll learn very fast. Challenging assignments, diversity, innovation.

    Cons

    Managers are driven by money to a fault. Key resources are not respected for their expertise, only their billability and sales. Used to be focused on quality but no so much anymore. I think they may have reached their highest level and be on the decline.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying attention tom people. Beware of running off all your senior technical resources. Actually have a technical ladder, instead of one on paper.

    Company footprint is amazing but too much competition between offices hinders collaboration.

    Pros

    International connections; several different labor categories allows you to see something new.

    Cons

    Billing rates/multipliers are too high resulting in lost work to competition; too much focus on utilization vs employee growth; company "pryamid" is top-heavy (more partners/senior level staff in comparison to junior staff); most vacancies filled via outside hiring vs promotions from within.

    Advice to Management

    Need to work on developing the company from the bottom up. The company is well positioned in most markets and now it's time to focus on the people you have currently instead of looking for the next best thing.

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility (work at home, flexible schedule, work from other offices). Opportunities to be involved in many different projects, including some international assignments. Great Pro-bono opportunities through the ERM Foundation. Lots of on-the-job training. Direct line managers tend to be really good.

    Cons

    Low base pay and little bonuses, not competitive with peer consulting firms. Only 7 National Holidays + 1 floating, and not enough vacation time. Difficult to grow and get promotions. Vacancies in higher levels are normally filled up with outsiders, making it very difficult for in-house employees to grow. Training programs are very scarce and only focus on high-level staff. Quality of training is low and does not focus on developing consulting/project management skills. Work-life balance is challenging: lots of hours and consultants are over-worked most of the time. Junior staff has a lot of pressure on billability, leaving them little room to develop non-billable work. Although line-managers tend to be really good, there is only so much that they can do given ERM's nature and higher management decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Manage better the cost of opportunity for junior and mid-level consultants. Provide more growth opportunities. Offer competitive benefits. Focus on training and development of all-level employees.
