    I worked at The Segal Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very nice colleagues, smart (but not arrogant), caring and a flexible work environment. Very good access to senior management/consultants. Ability to advance career is excellent if you take the initiative and are good. Rich benefits package.

    Cons

    Challenging market -- always competing against the big shops and HR folks generally don't like to take risks with boutiques like Sibson. But if they do, they will be well served!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the culture strong and employee friendly, that's a huge advantage AND differentiator when hiring top folks. Sharpen and intensify the marketing messages so that you can flourish as a boutique.

    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.

    Under resourced

    I have been working at The Segal Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some very smart people who are earnestly trying to do the best thing for our clients.

    Cons

    Resources are scarce. People leave and they are not replaced; everyone is expected to just pick it up and not drop any balls. Decisions are often made on high without seeking input or buy-in from those actually implementing the decisions.

    Great place for women to work.

    I have been working at The Segal Group part-time (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...

    Make decisions. The more you pass the buck, the more it makes employees second-guess you.
