    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Well recognized firm within the industry. Senior management consists of very respectable people within the industry.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. People are very unfriendly and downright rude. Compensation is below industry average. People straight out tell you that you need to be there to put in facetime. No clear direction from senior management as to what's going on and what role you play in the company, short of the company wide emails telling you that they are trying to improve communication.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to get their work done correctly and on time. Base promotions on actual performace and not hours spent at the office.

    Pros

    An international environment to work, very good team members who are open to sharing information and communication. Decent location for jobs.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is not supportive for employees to pursue further education. The general perception for the compensation is lower than other comparable firms.

    Advice to Management

    Should pay more attention to compensation, and should make clear system to do that where everyone feels rewarded for their work.
