    I have been working at The Segal Group

    Pros

    smaller size promotes a greater degree of colleagiality and team work. There is little to no bureauracy which eliminates much of the red tape when trying to advance an idea, risky project or something that could be percieved as a bit controversial. One comes into an office every day enjoying a fair degree of latitude to function and direct their work and career path. Being smaller means we need to be a bit more conservative in how we invest, but over the years, Segal has enjoyed significant financial stability and unlike most other competitor environments, Segal has not experienced a firmwide layoff in its 75 year history.

    Cons

    I have none to report. There is nothing of significance that disturbs me about this organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep doing what you are doing.

    I have been working at The Segal Group part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexibile work environment; engaging work content; smart and nice people; proven leadership; financially stable; opportunities to learn and grow; good benefits; client-focused culture.

    Cons

    Travel can be a bit much (but comes with the industry); growth by acquisition at times results in silos; some tech applications could use an update.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communications open and coming as the business evolves.

    Pros

    Work/life balance and competitive pay. Great benefits

    Cons

    Pay is below market, though competitive. that said, that is true with almost any job. There si always somebody out there willing to pay more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be present more. it's likely hard given other client needs, but still...

    Pros

    Very good management who treats you with respect and motivates you to develop in your career. Incredibly interesting changing daily routine that allows for intellectual growth and new challenges.

    Cons

    It is impossible to afford a decent standard of living in New York City on the salary. The organizational structure is very flat. While there is opportunity to grow your knowledge base and skill set, that does not translate into being recognized at different job positions or the ability to grow your salary within the firm. There is not a strong base of female consultants or minorities in top positions, which can be disheartening.
