    Pros

    People, benefits, flexibility, access to clients, lunch once a month and nice pens. Good internal pr for employees and charitable opportunities to give back.

    Cons

    Too much time wasted on politics and covering people off internally as opposed to working with clients on solutions. i think the company needs to evaluate the happiness factor. Some days its like a library there with no energy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiding and filling out forms. Start engaging and having real conversations. Email is not a substitute for a conversation. People still like to engage with each other. Try it, its good.

    Pros

    I can't think of one positive experience

    Cons

    The company culture; the people there are very egotistical and act like they know everything. Everyone, even people you don't report too likes to tell you how your doing. They are back stabbers.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together and stop handing out VP titles to everyone instead of paying them.

    The 401K, medical and dental benefits are decent. I feel one could work for this is a company for years and years.

    Some of the office politics can get to you if you're not in upper management but I feel all companies have this to some degree.

    no advice… keep informing employees and doing what you do best.

    Pros

    The flow of communication has improved over the past few years.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to advance your skill set if your client base is limited (doesn't engage outside of standard email best practices or has limited budget).

    Not a very good experience working there. They give away VP titles like free lunches.

    Pros

    It has a great culure. Very relaxed environment (e.g., everyone takes a lunch, plays board games, talks to each other, goes out for happy hour, etc.). Most people leave at 5, 5:30. I liked everything about it pretty much.

    Cons

    not a lot of room for growth very technical position which i wasn't prepared for

    Pros

    --Very good overall benefits package compared to other companies --Work from home flexibility and autonomy around work schedules

    Cons

    --Single biggest problem: Not a client centric culture rather a bunch individuals, not teams, in which everyone says 'I can't help you with that, it's not my responsibility' --Invisible leadership presence in New York office --No opportunity for face time with senior management equals no chance of promotion --If you don't know how to play the political game there is no chance of promotion --Technical Project managers who aren't project managers, nor are technical. --Very junior staff in line manager roles who are in way over their heads.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize talent when it's in front of you, not after the're gone. Recruit some client and employee centric leadership that can build agile teams that get things done for clients instead of continually failing the client.
