    Pros

    Great people, really care about you and your interests, excellent internal mobility options, good hours comparatively

    Cons

    Mediocre quality service, standards are not top-notch, but this means you are also held to a mediocre standard which can be a positive...

    Advice to Management

    More clarity around upward mobility and career trajectory for junior employees

    Pros

    vacation and work life balance are good.

    Cons

    never ending executive and middle management turnover in technology department. makes it difficult to advance your career as you are always working on rapport with your new boss. also continuous starting and stopping of major IT projects because of the same exec turnover. ludicrous IT audit expectations.

    Advice to Management

    stick with a team long enough for them to finish their tasks

    Pros

    Good culture and relatively young workforce
    Strong compensation (for middle market firm)
    Steady deal flow
    Firm is currently in growth mode

    Cons

    Limited client contact for junior-level employees
    Senior employees take almost all credit for team's work
    Lots of busy work, even up to senior VP level

    Advice to Management

    Reward high-performing junior-level employees with more responsibility and higher compensation instead of burying them under less competent, more senior employees.
