No opinion of CEO

Pros

- Enjoyed working with most of my colleagues.
- Good amount of PTO (5 weeks)
- They make a a lot of effort to train you to improve your technical expertise.
- Opportunities to work in India (on rotation)

Cons

- Really poor work/life balance during both tax busy seasons. I would work until 11pm or midnight for 2 months straight, plus 8+ hr days on weekends.
- Salary is not competitive.
- Some of the staff that was hired was just awful. It kind of makes you wonder if the company hires just anybody.
- People who should be fired aren't....or it takes them a long time. Everyone gets promoted at the same time, so if you're just "okay" you seem to be promoted as well. No incentive to work that hard.

Advice to Management

Be more aware of who the good staff/seniors/managers are.

    "Good place to work, with some challenges"

    Current Employee - Manager, Strategy & Operations Consulting in San Francisco, CA
    Current Employee - Manager, Strategy & Operations Consulting in San Francisco, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    1. Good exposure to senior management/C-suite clients
    2. Solid opportunities to grow- your career is what you make out of it. The faster you run, the harder you work, the more impact you create... the faster your career will progress
    3. Good resources for development - mentorship & counseling, internal & external resources easily available

    Cons

    1. Need to be part of a "group", or can get easily left out
    2. Poor work life balance - projects are busy, expectations are high. Too much extra focus on initiatives and other internal projects rob whatever leftover time remains for normal life. Weekend work is common, many late nights, lots of travel
    3. Lots of layoffs last year have left people unhappy

    Advice to Management

    Take stock and reward people for hard work. Put an end to the madness of initiatives - let people focus on good, solid client service
