    Pros

    Excellent experience if you apply yourself.

    Cons

    There is a difficult gap between operations and category management / sourcing. They treat the operations team horribly. The operations management team should be replaced with people that actually care and value their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees better

    Pros

    Fast growing company with an entrepreneurial dynamic.

    Cons

    Senior management are "bleacher coaches". One in particular thinks he can run the show from his bedroom in Chicago behind a command cell called "Sales Force.com". People get frustrated and leave. High turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember you are in a professional services business. Professional services are very "people centric". Treat your people like your most prized asset because, "They are dummy".

    Pros

    The folks who do the actual work have a great time. You work with a lot of Fortune 100 clients around the world. Some decent technology has been developed.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities to move up. Expect to work your ass off even on weekends. No formal training. Lots of back stabbing by superiors...Keep your resume up to date.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake the tree and figure out how you can move folks up the chain.

    Pros

    The HQ in KOP is really nice. Open spaces and high ceilings. There are really great people in the rank and file who really want to help their clients.

    Cons

    If your in middle management in a practice its very hard to get ahead. They have programs for advancement for junior personal but nothing for people further along in their career. Practice leaders do not give their subordinates exposure to senior leadership. Rank and file sourcing folks feel trapped with no clear direction on where their career goes next. Don't believe the company hype that the organization is flat and new ideas are welcome (most get shot down unless your manager can take credit for it in part).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership needs to stop taking for granted that the practice leads are giving them the whole picture. Perhaps start instituting 360 evaluations where junior employees can anomonously provide perspective. I promise you will be surprised.
