    "The leadership void enabled me to develop my resume and professional skills but prevented any real advancement."

    Pros

    Great opportunities for employees at all levels to build resume, skills
    Flexible work hours
    Smart, motivated employees (generally)
    Working at the forefront of a rapidly changing industry

    Cons

    Capable, hard workers are rewarded with more work, not promotions & raises.
    Incompetent mid-level management! The only good manager I worked for at KEMA left the company (fed up with his superiors). Managers are extremely hands off and provide little guidance, yet they make decisions and set budgets based on unrealistic client desires, usually with little or no input from the Analysts who actually understand the projects.They also frequently take credit for successes but avoid blame for failures.
    Geographical dispersion impedes development of culture & community.
    Favoratism in promotions process.

    Advice to Management

    If you expect Analysts to act as Senior Consultants and Project Managers, promote them and pay them for it.
    Hire capable Project Managers, regardless of their industry experience.
    Hire business developers that understand consulting and budgeting, not just their industries, and incentive contracts based on profit, not revenue.
    Train your managers to manage, and your leaders to lead!
