    Pros

    Large company with locations around the country allows for movement.
    Regional management structure creates visibility for lower to mid level employees.
    Reasonable pay scales. Bonuses dependent upon specific account success.

    Cons

    Internal movement opportunities can be challenging due to poor local management not supporting top performers.
    Demands are placed on local account teams based on goals set at a national level; actual account staff and budgets not withstanding.

    Pros

    Advancement is possible, good benefits, clear career path assistance.

    Cons

    If you are working in a client management account you need to realize that we are in the business of assisting our clients in saving money and that affects your budgets both professionally and personally.

    Advice to Management

    A better connection between the client account reps and corporate HR needs to be established. Sometimes it feels as though we are not working for the same company as other colleagues.

    People, decent compensation, high in ethics and morals, diversity is valued.

    Pros

    Compensation was commensurate with performance and was fairly allocated across Accounts. Senior directors are often paid 3-4X what junior directors are.

    Cons

    Promotions are very tricky - and as in most Firms - very political. Office culture in Chicago is fantastic!

    Advice to Management

    Consider adding some layers of support to the corporate services business. It feels like you are regularly re-inventing the wheel.
