    Pros

    Advisory practice is filled with talented folks. Reputation allows for trusted advisory relationship with key clients and often on the short list for calls when opportunities present themselves.

    Cons

    The travel aspect is less than optimal...utilization often trumps efforts to staff locally

    Advice to Management

    Consistency in applying criteria for promotion across functions / practices would result in less turnover

    Pros

    Great benefits package. The firm will really take care of you. Connections to great experienced professionals, and a worldwide reputation.

    Cons

    In the advisory practice, things get pretty hit or miss. The risk service line is world-renowned, but the management consulting line is newer, and underdeveloped.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in practice development! There will never be a true culture for advisory unless the knowledge base is developed and more easily accessible. Keep trying to break down barriers between service networks.
