Pros – Good global reach for mid-sized firm
On paper, practice groups are complimentary

Aggressive sales culture prohibits collaboration
Lack of Leadership
No enforcement of best practices or common go to market strategy
No tracking tools adds to dysfunctional and backstabbing
Very siloed practice groups
Slow internal processes, many of which are unnecessary
Advice to Senior Management – Talent is in place, yet an attitude of resignation is in place to the dysfunction due to your collective weakness as leaders. Revenue goals could be accomplished and exceeded by implementing and enforcing a standard approach that is practiced by all. Lack of education and understanding of various practice groups. Even admin pool have negative attitudes/do whatever they want.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Strong system in place to understand corporate work
Cons – Pressure of being a public company and focus on bottom line
“Never worked for a better company. The employer and employee work culture is none like I've ever seen.”
Pros – Some of the Best reasons I found working there are the excellent and well versed staff. From the CEO to the very bottom-the janitor. Yes, that's how diverse they are with language, skills, assestments and general morale. They have a state of the art lunch and dining area. They provide the food and drinks and snacks. They have fun things you can sign up to do on weekends. Training classes. Seminars, Travel arrangements. The works.
Cons – I can't think of any downsides of working there. I had too much fun when I was there on a temporary assignment. Yes, they use temp agency to hire for overloads. My temp agency hasn't been able to get me back on with them, but If I could, I would.
Advice to Senior Management – The upper management seems to know just how to prioritize and get the work down just by using some plain and simple reverse psychology tools that's been around forever. It works. Keep up the good work.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
