Fascinating work. Good collegial atmosphere in some groups and offices. Opportunities to do most anything anywhere in the world. Long leash given to hang yourself or achieve great things. Very pleasant work environment, despite all of the layoffs and turmoil.
Below average pay. Below average health care. Poor stock valuation and performance. Layoff decisions based on current economics, not necessarily long-term profitability. Most of the B of D are not really qualified to provide oversight and carry out typical Board tasks. Too much slacking off among the consulting staff and a bloated support staff (that has been significantly reduced, at least in North America - good thing). The people that destroyed the stockholder value are still around for the most part, and the thinking that got us into this mess is still there in the synchophant Board and management team.
Advice to Management
Please all resign (with exception of CEO) now and get some qualifiednon- Yes Men (and women) onto the Board and into the management. Golder needs real independent thinking at the moment, not yes-men.
