    Advice to Management

    Clean out the clutter on Mahogany Row, support your employees in the field, stop turning a blind eye to the "Painfully obvious" attitude of "Better him/her than me" even greased Teflon fades eventually...written for those who made the choice to choose singularity over collective goals, stop putting leaderless people in leadership roles.....intimidation & convenient forgetfulness don't work either

    Pros

    Good working atmosphere, enjoy the people, feel like you are part of a team, less territorial than other consulting companies, fairly good cooperation between offices.

    Still a very large company but does have a smaller company feel. Believe its somewhat dependent on where you are based.

    Be more in tune with the different types of work we are performing and more aggressive in pursuing new lines of work.
