    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Access to projects
    If you are a associate you will have tremendous responsibility because the folks hire up won't be there for input.

    Cons

    Company culture changed when it went public from valuation firm to accounting firm.
    MD's who were not smart enough to carry their own weight or bring in decent business.
    MD's looked out only for themselves when company went public
    Company suffered when they change income generation from Associates with MBA's from top schools to Associates barely out of college with no experience.
    No diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Have your workforce mirror your clients as far as intelligence and diversity
