Approves of CEO

Pros

The ability to market and build external relationships is top-notch, and management promotes it. Also good external education opportunities. Also the management is not rude and will allow you to learn from your mistakes. Also, the firm is very quick in turning around expenses and the IT system in place is very adequate. Have learned a lot and have assumed a great amount of responsbilites in the group.

Cons

Sometimes the name does not take you as far marketing-wise, but the brand recognition is expanding. Also, bonus compenstation is not as strong as it should be, but that is changing. The consulting group I work in is growing and maturing, so they should become more competitive in the future.

Advice to Management

Need to rebuild the investment banking unit on the West Coast (M&A and valuation). Need to expand executive level involvement in West Coast efforts and visit the West Coast more often.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good experience to put on your resume.

    Cons

    -Management is awful for the most part, with a few exceptions, they are immature, unsympathetic, political, unintelligent, the list goes on. These people wouldn't survive in a normal workplace.
    -Work/Life balance is non-existent (BDO Flex is a joke)
    -All you do is work, busy season never ends and the pay is pitiful for the number of hours. They also don't reward people for their hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the majority of management and start over.
