    Pros

    I can't think of any- Location ?

    Awful place to work. The managers yelling at staff to show off their powers. The staff (including managers) act like high school kids. Unprofessional managers and staff.

    Horrible, awful and annoying. The managers have no work ethics, the offices are dirty, there's always a lot of tension.

    I worked at The Bollard Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Located close to downtown Boston

    Cons

    Most of the partners are horrible coworkers. They have an awful personality. There's no leadership in that company. Stress level is always at maximum. Everybody hates their job there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit your job.

    Pros

    Somewhat interesting job and clients.

    Cons

    No one will say thank you for all your extra time and effort. Mid level management is awful (senior management is great).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your employees according with their contribution.

    Awful mid-level managers

    Former Employee - Tax Accountant in Boston, MA

    I worked at The Bollard Group

    Pros

    Interesting clients, brilliant senior-level managers, great location, competitive salaries, decent benefits, always opportunities to learn new skills with diverse clients.

    Cons

    Long hours, thankless mid-level managers, revolving door culture, managers who teach by yelling and belittling staff, not many professional growth paths.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cultivate your staff rather than viewing them as expendable. The constant sloughing off of staff members contributed to extremely low morale.

    I worked at The Bollard Group

    Pros

    Beautiful building located right in Beacon Hill, it has its own private gym, centrally located in downtown Boston and near the T.

    Cons

    Boss is the biggest micromanager on planet earth, management and employees scared to death of him, nothing ever gets done as no one wants to step up to claim responsibility, extremely high turnover (company of 40 turns over 35 personnel within 18 monhts)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your people like people and not as equipment. They have lives and deserve respect and a decent work life balance. Stop micromanaging and actually let your workers do the job you hired them to do. Stop pulling on the reins; the reason nothing gets done here is the workers are scared to death of you and will not stand up to accept risk due to backlash.
